Promote ImageDuel

Discussions of the methodology suggest that Pixoto would like to have even more voting going on so that more opinions go into selecting the best photos.

When I visit the site, ImageDuel is just one button on the top menu and using it isn't promoted much. Most of the content of the pages is about viewing leaderboards.

As I navigate around the site, I'm not prompted to participate in ImageDuels. I ust have to remember to do it myself.

Ideas:
  • Change ImageDuel prominence in top menu through color, size.
  • Add links to promote ImageDuel participation elsewhere on site.
  • Offer extra credits periodically to promote participation
  • Bonus for regular participation ... get something / credits for voting X times each day consistently for a week.
  • Build a call to action into social medial links so that when my actions on Pixoto wind up on Facebook or Twitter, they're inviting my friends to chime in and pick their favorite photos too.

    Also, if "ImageDuel" is your TM, when I go into it, it reads "IMAGEDUEL" which is inconsistently formatted.

    Hey Ken,

    Once again, great ideas!

    We're pretty happy with the number of ImageDuels taking place on the site. In fact, the sheer number (we surpassed 1M yesterday) has been staggering to us. There was a time we thought we had to charge 10 credits for each image to ensure we would get at least 10 votes for each image and the community has completely proved us wrong.

    Still, it never hurts to have more votes cast and we will look at these suggestions. Thanks!

    Thanks. So will credits be phased out?

    No, credits won't be phased out. It still serves to get new users into ImageDuels as they have to duel in order to publish their own images.

    We have some other things we're working on related to credits as well. :-)

    That's good because my images aren't competitive.
