Similar and duplicate images

I have been a Pixoto Pro member for a few years now. I had refrained from uploading any images for duels for almost a year, and thought I would come back and try. This will be my final year as a paid member of Pixoto. Unfortunately, the site runs rampant with people submitting images which are similar and in some cases may as well be duplicates.

I'm not sure why Pixoto allows this to continue to happen, but seeing as it is a constant theme, I can only surmise there is no vested interest in managing this as it would deter individuals from visiting the site, uploading, and voting, as well as have an impact on the other financial aspects of stock photography.

Sorry. I just can't think of anything positive to say at this time. This is very disheartening.

Hello Barb, I'm sorry you feel this way. If you see very similar images please do report them. Without reporting report team can not act on them if needed.

This can not be solved by reporting all the time. Only option is to insert a rule of a maximum of 1 or 2 pictures per person per challenge.

Check previews of entered pictures in almost every challenge and you can find a load of crap on similar pictures entered by same persons. They try to beat the system in this way.

The whole voting system and set up is becoming a big joke

Yep, I can't stand another oversharpened photos of eagles and flowers anymore! LOL!
