It hasn't been flagged in the last three years, and I post some complaints about the voting and lack of duels and I get flagged. I'm sure it's just coincidence!

Perhaps it's because I vote quickly. It takes me all of 2 or 3 seconds to know which photo grabs my interest and then I pull the trigger. Instead of flagging my account to keep me from voting for 24 hours, Pixoto would be better served looking at some of my top scoring images this month, and see the out of focus, lackluster photos to which I have lost, and then go after those people who are true chronic down-voters!

Earlier I had said that Pixoto was becoming a bad joke at the expense of it's members. Nuff said.

You have a very good point here. I am also amazed by the voting results sometimes. I was even wondering whether some members do sabotage the voting on purpose.

I had all of my photos deleted from here about a month ago and my account was to be closed, but they seem to have left me with a limited account. All my photos are gone and I can't post photos, but still have access in here, so I stop by once and awhile to read the forum. WOW!!!!! my reasons for leaving are still thriving here at Pixoto I see.... The horse is dead everyone,,, put down the whip!!!!!!

Hi John, would you like me to check your voting pattern and send you e-mail about it? Our flag system doesn't really take into consideration account owner, just voting pattern, so your being flagged has nothing to do with you other activity.

No, I guess they reconsidered and I'm able to vote again, but thank you, Jasenka.

How does an account get flagged? What can be wrong with the voting pattern?

You criticize Pixoto, in some form, on this forum, and then suddenly, out of the blue, after more than three years on this site having never been flagged, they flag your account. In my case, twice in three days!

Be careful what you say on here...the Pixoto complaint police are watching you! My fourth flagging should be hitting my account within hours. lol! ;)

I'm being somewhat facetious here, Ludmila. They say they flag your account for voting irregularities...voting too fast, voting for images in a duel all on the same side (left or right) or if you voted for an image they believe to be the losing image (which is a joke with all the downvoting that occurs on this site). In my case I'm down to about 185 credits and by flagging me from voting perhaps they think they will force me to buy credits...and yeh, that's really going to happen!

In this case John, nobody has to vote, Pixoto will tell us also the winning images! Problem effectively solved. *lol*

JOhn, the problem of irregularities seems debatable, it happens sometimes that I too vote on images on the left/right side just because it so happens that the least ugly keeps showing up on that side 20 times for instance. And how much time do I need to decide? 2 seconds? maybe 3? I for instance have a very good eye and swift reflexes, I need very little time to decide. Maybe some voting guidelines should be posted, to avoid these so-called irregularities.

funny how when you make a complaint on this forum strange things begin to happen...like Pixoto deleting images.
