Please stop old flowers pictures showing up in votes for nature up close category

  • 8
  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
  • Acknowledged
As flowers were a subcategory of Nature Up Close in the past, they still pop-up very frequently when voting for Nature Up Close category. This seems to be wrong, since flowers became a separate category.
Can this be solved please?!
(there are already so many pixoto members that keep on wrongly posting flowers and animals in nature up close, so we don't need these old flowers disturbing the voting process too...)

Any update Jasenka?

This old flower picture

voted today (!) against
my grapes in nature up close ..

Given actual category descriptions this doesn't make sense...

It's ridiculous - you'd end up getting some b.s. response about how people are boosting their images back into play - blah blah blah - which is a crock because half the old images that are getting pulled up are associated with members who have not posted in months.......I no longer upload images. This site is a joke

It's not about old pictures in general Woodstock. That is the case as well since Q4 2014 but that's another thread. Here it's the point of an unwanted side-effect of making a subcategory a main category later. Old pictures should have been moved to the new category as well or excluded from future duels.
Neither is the case, so that's why I asked for an asap solution...

That's what I was trying to say - the fact that such old images that no longer fit the category are showing up in new duels is just wrong.

Hi Jasenka, currently again a lot of flowers of the old subcategory of Nature Up Close of a few years back now are showing up in the duels.

Can you please indicate when the plan tot move these (6month ago already announced, see above) really will be moved or at least stop competing todays nature-up-close photos?

Hi Jasenka, another month has been passed.
Now 7 months ago you indicated "we do plan to move flowers".
Situation of the old flowers is really anoying...

I cannot imagine the planning hasn't made it to a more concrete state in 7 months.
Please let us know when movement wil happen.
Thx
Ad

Hi Jason, perhaps a reaction from you?
The plan is there for almost a year now. Is it really that hard to implement this?

Jason, Jasenka.
First of all a Happy New Year.

Will 2016 be the year that this problem is solved?

e.g. these old flowers (pictures over 2 years old) are competing to nature up close these days...

Hi Ad, Happy New Year to you too.

As I replied in another topic, I'm sorry, we tried to stop old flower subcategory under Nature up close category, and we tried to move it to Flower category but it was unsuccessful.

When we find solution to this issue we will handle it. I'm sorry but we don't know when will it be.

Still a question Jasenka. Is my impression right that voting with old flowers happens quite more frequent in the beginning of the year than later in the year?
Because somehow I do see them really more often...

Hi Jasenka, an answer already?
It's really annoying to see so many flowers these days popping up in duels with nature up close pictures...

Hi Ad, I'm sorry, we tried to move that subcategory but it wasn't successful. For now it will have to stay where it is until we find betters solution.
