I uploaded 9 images last night and when i woke up this morning a couple were paused........... Fine so far i just un-paused them

When i checked my email i had 85 "pause notifications" telling me based on your algorithm they were unlikely to reach high positions. 85 for 9 images over a matter of 8 hours, are you kidding !!!

Also i did some voting last night one of the images i voted on was newly submitted last night when i went to look at the image there were NO votes for it ?

How does your algorithm detect bad votes because mine were not BAD!!! and how can your algorithm detect the likelihood of an images potential from the first couple of votes which were all mine had had when you started sending me all the emails.?

Hi Ralph, are you sure all of the notifcations are for the images you uploaded last night? I received several on older images, that is why I am asking. Also I will escalate to tech regarding the image that did not get any votes, can you link me to that image please?

As to the notifications no i am not sure after the first 10 i just deleted them a total waste of time for me and for Pixoto i believe, time that could have been spent stopping the problems highlighted on this site every day, Sorry but that's how i feel !

As to the votes, not my image but a very nice one which deservedly won the vote i submitted but never received it as far as i could see !!

How many other Good Votes are not being added and is this why some people are not achieving the awards that they would getting in an average week ?!!

Also i noticed in another thread you suggested we could turn off email notifications ? if we do that will we also stoop being told of awards and all the other useful notifications ?

As far as I know important emails will be sent regardless if you opt out of the notifications, it appears the opt out is only for Pause notifications, to know if someone followed you, if someone makes a comment on one of your images and that sort of thing. It does not state that you will not receive other notices, but I will double check to be sure.

But we want those other features, it's JUST the pause notifications that suck.

Yes I 2nd the motion, can you move the "Email me when my image is paused" to another checkbox? This is not important to me. I can easily check thru my recent photos if anyone of them is paused.

I would still like to know if someone followed me as well as if someone favorited my photo which is important.

I notice that option 3 of the pause notification is to sign up to "Pro" !!

Is the underlying idea behind these nuisance emails to get us so p##s#d off that we sign up for pro where we wont get paused ?!!

It would be nice if we could specify what type of notification we want, and what we do not want.

Well i was happy to get all the others !

However 100+ and still getting them is just bloody stupid .!

Well it might stop the duplicates...... no one will want to post in case they get a dozen emails about each image entered

Seriously though wasn't it thought of in advance, the effect this would have on our personal email accounts ?

Am i to expect that quantity every day ? and

Can i change the email address you send them to i will give you one i never use !

Now i am getting several emails to say an image that has been paused most of the day.... is Paused !!!

I know that the only reason i have not un-paused it is to try to stop the flipping messages, !

Well now i have reset my email, anything that comes in saying paused message goes straight to the trash !!!

Hi Ralph, the tech team is working to fix the system. I am sorry for the notifications, please ignore them for now and delete them.

Ralph - we're really sorry for all the spammy emails. Our system wasn't behaving as it should. We disabled pause emails about 9 hours ago and wont add them back again for existing members.

As to your vote not being counted I'd need to look into the reason. Your votes do count (I checked). Most likely it is a caching issue. Results reported on the image detail page are not real time and can be delayed by several minutes.
