Still have the same problem with paused pics. This one has 54 wins against 46 lost but it's paused. What can I do???

Pausing is based on image score and number of duels and not on win/loss ratio. If the image is very unlikely to achieve the top 10 percent based on these statistics - it will to be paused. With 100 votes in - ImageScore is very unlikely to change enough to get it into the top 10%.

I think you should as you do have control over the website beings you are constantly changing it. Make the pausing of photographs be paused by win/loss ratio and give the photographs a chance. Just because you don't like them, don't mean other won't. (You said in another post - You pause them if you feel they are not going to succeed.) If I could remember what post it was under, I'd surely go back and grab it to show you in this comment box.

Jeremy - couple of points:
- there is a bug in our pause algorithm right now that causes some images to be paused to early. we're fixing and will unpause effected images
- We don't make any personal decisions about the images. If an image is paused it is based purely on statistics.
- We do refine our algorithms based on the comments of our members and we are in the process of making the pause algorithm at least 50% less aggressive.

Ah, a bug, that makes better sense! I hope it gets fixed soon because a 3win 2 loss is pretty low...
You had said on another post that you pause them if you feel they will not do good in the image dual so the better photographs can cycle through.
I was hoping you'd say this... My image dual points get low because I have to unpause my images after just getting them posted. We should all be reimbursed of our well earned image dual points (j/k) they are free after all...

Anyways, thanks for the heads up, I was getting frustrated! Now, I'm cooled down!

oh yes, please, please, fix it. And if you really could do it less aggressive, you will make my day. Thanks

your explanation is near to be nominated for Nobel in categhory "abstract talk"

i s no sense to stop duels especially if image goes up....what if that image has attributes which are unique or lets say popular....
i can not see logic in your explanation.
personaly i think that YOU arrange raking of players and du e that fact i will not gave to you any more my works..
all best to the "team"

I have several images in the first or top 5 or top 10% and every single one of them I had to "help" many times out of their deadlock situation. I think pictures should not b pauzed until at least 60 or more votes to get at least fair average. I get really annoyed by this pausing stuff that I'm thinking to walk away from this website completely... sorry, but that's how I feel.

Sorry for your frustration. Unfortunately I don't think we could make the system work with 60 votes. Last week we made the pausing system much less aggressive (in addition to fixing a bug) and are working on some ImageDuel algorithm enhancements right now that should make it less likely to be unfairly paused. Please bare with us.

My latest picture which is now doing well 635 points needed 5 unlocks in 1 hour between 5 and 20 duels.. How can you pause a picture after only 6 duels... I don't get it

Thanks for posting this. We'll take a look at this image and perhaps figure out how to prevent it from happening in the future.

that's what I do from the beginning to the end. I unpause the pics a few times a day when I have the time to do it. And it's very rare that they don't get more points. I asked also if WE can maybe pause your pics. I have one unpaused which only decrease ans get less and less points..... What can we do????
