Hi Pixoto, as i said before i will keep testing voting system with different categories and especially during weekly challenges.
This is second time that this happens ... first time was with "Coin" with this image https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr.... Score dropped from around 720 to 670 because i kept boosting after 100 duels.
This time is in "Cold drinks" with this image https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr.... It dropped from 712 to currently 658, i will keep boosting to see how low it will go.

Is this for real? Was it just my luck to get into 700's and images don't belong there? Can you explain this behavior? Whats wrong with my pictures, all other members please feel free to comment and make judgments too?

I will keep doing the same with this one https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr.... There is still lots of time until Thursday before winners are announced.

Hi Nikola!

I have also noticed similar...My photos are not near the caliber of yours, but I have also noticed if I try to boost for more votes past 100, they tend to drop lower, rather than go higher...So now that I have so many credits from doing lots of voting...I really don't know what I will do with them...It doesn't seem to be worth it to try to boost pictures that have already had 100 duels...

Just my experience, so far, and I am pretty new, yet! :)

Thanks Linda, you have some great images too!
I am not worried that score might drop or raise (mostly never do in my case) but to have such huge drops its really mind blowing. I mean, in this case those images should never reach 700 at first place. And i can guarantee if i resubmit again the same image it will never get near the score it did the first time. Its almost they got targeted so no matter what you do it is almost certain they will under-perform in further duels.
I boost images because its competition and if one believes that image is good enough to compete at the top then should not hesitate to do so. And i understand that image might not get at the top but honestly it should be in range of +-15 points, not - 50-60.

Thanks Nikola! Yes, those ARE pretty drastic drops...My top one dropped at least 14 points, and in MY case, it was a bit scary for me as probably the ONLY pix I'll have for a while that has ANY chance of staying in the '700 club'... [novice, that I am...] :) But I hadn't been able to even get one into the 600's until that tiger pic, and it dropped something like 21 points, as I was trying to boost it, at least 3 times... [3x5] and it kept dropping, even though sometimes it would win over a higher scored image... :(

Well...Good luck! :)

It is normal that some images will hit a high point and then start to back down as they challenge images with high scores, If your image is in the 700s and you Duel Boost, it has to face other images in the 700s which are all very good images. Every time your image loses the Image score drops,

However I would say the same for an image that reaches 612 and is boosted and drops. If the image has reached the peak of image score for that image (612, 700, or even 550) and it starts dueling images with higher scores, and losing, it will lose Image Score.

Jasenka's answer sounds correct, sorry I have not gotten clarification as of yet, the team was busy Monday working on a couple of technical issues.
