Re categorising images.

  • Updated 6 years ago
Over the past few weeks I appear to be getting re categorized a lot especially on images that do particularly well. I dont know if this is due to someone in competition reporting me unfairly or whether a moderator is not agreeing with the categories for which I post images. There is also no notification of a category change I only notice once I log back in again and the points and duels have changed. However every time I am re categorized I seem to do a lot worse in terms of points than the images in their original category. I am mainly referring to the image linked below which was number 2 for the day in digital art a day or so ago. I have re touched this image to an illustrative style and therefore placed it in the digital art category. I have done this numerous times with similar styles of editing (not subject or composition) of images in the past and it has not been a problem. I understand why you have certain categories and I always post to the one I feel is most appropriate for the image. Could a moderator please look at the image again and consider its category and maybe re instating my points? I really enjoy this website and have been using it for about 3 years now its great to see where you rank every day however I'm concerned im being re categorized unfairly. Thanks for your time in this matter

all the best

Hello Theo!

Thanks a lot for a comment Theo!

This procedure happened a day by day through last few days. This is my site and if you visiting it you can find that I mostly recorded "Other Plants" ( link: http://www.pixoto.com/marija.jilek1/a....)

I am speechless.
First of all, it seems to me that people use any means to achieve their small petty goals.

It seems to me miserable, and not least because Pixote 'quote is: Be kind, be useful!
Warm greetings from Zagreb, Croatia!

Hi Jasenka!

Is this right category for my photo:http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - now at 24th place or its belongs to origin category : "Nature Up Close - Other Plants" - http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra....

The only way to rectify the problem is to replace the points and prize of June 18th 2014 at the place where they were deserved!

Thank you for doing well!!!

It is Pixoto that does the changing, not the members. Yes the members can report what they think is a wrong category but it is up to Pixoto to decide if its right or not, Pixoto can make mistakes however.

I don't think that has anything to do with this issue and is a bit of an insult to Pixoto employees....after all they cannot qualify for any cash prizes.

That's your opinion that I don't agree with. If what I have said is not the case, then are you saying that they are just simply dumb and don't know what they are doing? You will only feel insulted if you're doing your job right, but if not, then you have to feel ashamed and not insulted.

The insult is that you are suggesting they are not honest in what they do, not that they are right or make a mistake.

Are they? Because if they are, then they will not be committing mistakes. How many have been given credit points because of those mistakes? And how many have been ignored because they feel images were "too similar" while others are not?

Look at your image, it has been reported many times, did they act on it? No.

Why a wish flower not a flower? If you yourself is honest enough, then you could have change the category of your image when Isabella told you about it 13 days ago. Why deflect the issue instead of correcting it? Why follow the other violators in that category? Wow!

I guess you'd better report all the other dandelion seeds in the same category, should keep you busy for awhile.I guess you've already reported mine so that's one less for you lol.

Hello Theo, I'm really sorry about this recategorization, it should have never happened, report team member made mistake. We will recategorize your photo back to Digital art category, and we have added 1000 credits to your account so you can boost it as much as you like.
Please accept my apology.
