I've noticed that some players consistently submit the same image into different categories in the same week. e.g. http://www.pixoto.com/borisfrkovic/re...
Is this allowed, and if not then rules stating it should be announced and enforced.
In fact, rules should be made clearer and listed from a menu along the top nav. for cross checking.

Sounds fair.
As a newcomer, I agree that the rules should be clearer. I haven't found them yet!!

I'm with you. it's not fair. At least if somebody wants to re-submit a picture then they should delete the first one first.

I don't agree. From an artist's viewpoint, it is helpful to post the same picture in different catagories to see how that affects ratings. It is also helpful to submit different versions of the same picture for the same reason. This helps establish what techniques are more appealing than others. Experimentation is a great learning tool.

I just cut and pasted the rules here, it should answer your question, Marianna

Contest Notes
•Do not ask your friends to vote up your image. We rely on unbiased feedback.
•To qualify for a weekly award images must be received by Saturday at Midnight GMT. Images received after that will be entered into the following week's contest.
•Players suspected of attempting to unduly influence the results will be disqualified at our sole discretion.
•Compiled images (images composed of multiple images but excluding multiple exposures of the same subject) must be entered in the “Photoshop Art” category
•You may submit an unlimited number of images.
•Pixoto will award prizes based on the results of online voting using ImageDuel and reserves the right to adjust and modify the image ranking algorithms at any time and at its sole discretion.

If you took your time to read it, you may see that we can post as many pictures we want, and there is not policy to put same pictures under different categories. If this note was change, the respective ones in charge here, forgot or didn't have the time yet to upgrade it.

It's so rude to mention names or cut and past other people links here, specially when this posting rule is still readble in the frontpage on this website. I hope at least you communicated with this guy first, and gave him a chance to him make his own decision on deleting his duplicate images or not. This guy probably doesn't even know you brought up his name in here... I mean, lets work more on make art and stop all the gossip about others.

Elizabeth, I was not being rude but have been asked to list specifics when an issue arises rather than talk in general terms. I was giving a concrete example to illustrate a point. No ill intent was ever meant on my part.

Give a chance to people, add them as friends first, and email them from Facebook or Twiter. Or you can contact the people who works here, in private, and talk about your issue with others, without exposing anyone who may don't even know what you are doing. It's more professional this way, and we should have some moral ethics here to follow, specially with the new members, who are still leaning. Talking bad about other members work on their back, won't is not constructive criticism, is just neast gossip, and it should stop. By the way, I took a look on the link you posted, and his artwork is STUNNING! I'm glad he is here, I love to be among quality people, it makes me proud.

Sometimes we need the intervention of Pixoto founders to clarify rules which evidently from this thread are too vague. By doing so on this forum we give other members a chance to learn from this discussion.

Marianna. You raise a good point. Currently as long as the original image is deleted there is no rule against submitting it again. While we don't allow the image to be submitted to the same category more than once it is currently acceptable to submit it to more than one category.

That said we are discussing changing this rule based on your feedback.

Thanks

i hope you don't change the rule. I like being able to see which category it does better in if it seems to fit in more than one. But I suppose it doesn't really matter as all you have to do is change the file name.

there is always an option to resubmit an image in a different category if u feel that the image is not doing well. This automatically deletes the previous category upload while retaining all other details. And its fair that it comes at 10 credit points.

I had a similar question, i took a candid of a kid eating, i dont know should i post it under children or under food/eating category. In such cases, i would prefer to post it under both the category and that makes sense to me.

Thank you for all your feedback. Based on this we have decided that from this point forward Pixoto will only allow one copy of an image to be live on the site at any given time. We have implemented a new image check into the upload process that will help enforce this. Please see www.pixoto.com/contest for the new rules.

okay this photo is posted at least 3 different times, albeit with a slightly different crop, in three categories in the last two weeks. But this guy has so many damn images it would be really hard to find. http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

Um yeah, so any photo that I know has beaten one of mine...

unless it is really unbelievably, super-fantastic good, which I have seen on occasion, I would probably vote against. Weather I knew who had taken it or not.

This is kind of like one of those reality shows......
