I asked him 15 days ago and got no response. I noticed Sweet Nana asked him on his last picture and no response. I hope you are more successful.

Don't want to be the smartest a$$ here, but since I work in engineering and deal with system development and project management, "maintenance" designation is not a temporary thing. It is essentially a death row for the project. It means that all development is officially stopped, and the only reason the project/system is still alive because there are paying customers who are still using it. New users are typically either not welcomed or accepted and only glaring issues and problems are fixed (which is exactly what happened when Scott briefly came on board and fixed some of the problems Sweert Nana compiled in one thread). So when I heard Jasenka admitting that Pixoto is in maintenance mode, to me it meant the official end of Pixoto. I suggest everyone to start looking somewhere else for Pixoto-like competition sites.

I have to agree with DVA. I think Pixoto is getting ready to pull the plug. They are either not making enough money on this site to sustain it or...and I hope this isn't the case...it's a matter of take the money and run. In the world of IT sophistication it should never have taken this long to fix the problems that plague a small site such as this. Hopefully Pixoto won't just suddenly disappear into the night without some warning, truthful or not, as to why the site is shutting down.

That’s what I was afraid of. It’s really too bad - it was a great site. DVA - since you work in the tech area, I elect you to create a similar site

I see that the weekly awards are still posting and the awards for daily posts--but it is scary that the voting seems to stall out . And yearly awards?? Such a great site--please don't give up on it, Owners of this place!! :(

Jasenka, I know this question has been asked repeatedly. We are halfway through 2018. When will the remaining 2017 awards be given? Do you have a way to contact Scott to plead for resolution of this issue?
