so- you chose to leave all the drop splash photos. Seriously? so- it's ok if we all post 20-30 similar pictures. Fair is fair. This should be a fun upcoming week.

Btw can anyone confirm or dismiss my suspicion that these images are duplicates (based on the same original photo)?

the angle of the shot for the BW is really the same. so it's a triplicate. they all have the same EXIF info

and I would agree with you that these two images

are duplicates. One is a cropped version. Pixoto should take back the cash prize they gave to these image as THEY are REAL duplicates

There are plenty guys that have so many duplicates- its not worth reporting them all- they need to just be eliminated.

I've reported a bunch of guys like the one above-over the last week- and not even one of them has had any pictures eliminated. It's like that report button doesn't work! Or these guys are their friends or something!

PLEASE MAKE A 3 STRIKE RULE
any portfolio found to have 3 or more sets of true duplicates- gets AUTOMATICALLY reset to ZERO. All points and awards gone. All photos deleted.
Start over from scratch! (3 sets- to allow for honest mistakes) After 2 weeks with the 3 strike rule- everyone should have had enough time to eliminate all their own duplicates- so drop it to 2 sets of duplicates gets you reset to zero. It will work!!!

This is the last week I'm gonna be on here if they don't take action.
The method I just said is self regulating. If they leave their duplicates up- they will pay the ultimate price.

EVERYONE- PLEASE ASK THEM TO DO THE 3 STRIKE= RESET TO ZERO RULE!!!

that's why there should be a screening body to screen images before they go into duels. tsk tsk frustrating but Im positive of BIG changes later

Jay, you do a great job yourself as do other peope who manage to catch duplicate images and such but I get the feeling we're all fighting a losing battle

hmmm, BIG changes later - theres the operative word "later" when exactly do we think later will be? Pixoto..... any input?

I'm with the crowd here, I'm slowing down submitting and concentrating on more important things in life, I havent enough hours in the day to report, vote, submit, check reports are being acted on, and take photos, I'm losing faith here like so many others its a shame

I wish I could add something more to this discussion but it seems we have all complained to the point of frustration. I also am tired of being frustrated. I think I will just take a break from the forums for awhile and see if anything gets better. Pixoto knows what the problems and issues are and needs to deal with them. I will still maintain my membership and upload photos in hopes that these issues will be resolved.

you're right, its too frustrating. And tiring. Sometimes a few pics are deleted and the next day there even more.And the duels! So boring to see the same pictures, cropped, rotated, duplicates etc. A photo community should be inspiring. I also will stay here a little but not too long I think
