This person continually has very similar images of his 2-3 dogs (same ones), playing with a stick or tire. He's been reported by another before. Why does he not get his pics deleted or pixoto make sure he/she does? http://www.pixoto.com/kris

Melissa, Kris submitted about 1700 photos in last 3 months. Is there any limit to number of submitted photos on Pixoto? Yes, there are several dogs playing, but I did not find duplicates. And did you noted that among all photos he submitted, dogs are maybe on 5%.

This is the discussion about the difference between similar and duplicate.

The words mean different things, so when the rules say that they can't be similar, I don't think that means the same as that they can't be duplicates.

And there are a lot of members submitting work that could be considered extremely 'similar'.
But that seems to have been the case for a long time, so to suddenly start removing them now would be unfair, considering those that were allowed to stand from times past.

It does make a joke of the rule of 'no similarities', though. Well, to me anyway.

If you check in any dictionary you will see that (at least in UK) 'similar' means 'exactly the same'.

That's exactly what I meant. Similar= same. If it's allowed, it's allowed. But I am allowed to say that the "similar" pics are getting old! 5% or not... with 1700 photos/month, that's more than a few!

I do not understand why it should be a problem. Kris Pate sticks to the rules and doing nothing wrong.

Pixoto's rules says "NO VERY SIMILAR IMAGES: You may submit an unlimited number of images but each one must be significantly different from the others. This means only one image of any subject and scene/pose combination is allowed (e.g. either b/w or color - not both). You may however delete an image and resubmit it at any time. If reported, and we agree that the images are not distinct enough, the newer image will be deleted. This is critical for keeping the Pixoto community vibrant, exciting and fun (note - this rule effective 6/1/2012)."
