Only show daily leaderboards the next day after awards have been given.

If pixoto wants to curb some of the possible cheating, I think it would be easy to stop allowing people to see how their images they entered that day are doing in real time. For instance, today I had an image that was high up on the leaderboard and several more wins than loses. There was only seven hours left to enter images for the day when I last checked. I looked again, and it had dropped six spots and started losing much more duels in those last few hours.
It is certainly possible that it's just a coincidence. But if people were not able to gauge how they were doing against the other images submitted that day perhaps it would cut back on the sabotage that occurs.

Thank you Felicia for suggestion, however since we award weekly, monthly and yearly awards too, we would have to then show leaderboards after more then a year (after all yearly awards are assigned).

I think that delaying the visibility of the daily positions alone would cut back on a lot of immediate cheating though. The other leaderboards are probably harder to manipulate.
