Slow duels once again. This is getting to be the norm. Really annoying.

Hello Ron, I checked yesterday's leaderboard and I can see images have more then 70 duels - we tend to have 50 duels at the time awards are assigned.

If you can please post link to image that you feel is not getting enough duels, we can check.

Hi Jasenka, Historically 50 duels at the time of awards is pretty low. It's not any one image it's all of them! Specifically I'm talking about the Transportation and B&W categories. I agree that lately you only see 15 to 20 duels on images after 12 hours and maybe 50 duels at the time of awards. Traditionally you would see 40 to 50 duels after 12 hours and 80, 90 and even 100 duels at the time of awards. Anymore it's a good day if you see more than 70 duels at the time of awards.

Painfully slow dueling appears to happen two or three days a week. I'm not sure if it's the challenges or just slow activity on Pixoto. Perhaps there isn't enough people participating on Pixoto anymore to provide the higher dual counts?

Ron, since image gets to its approximate position at about 50 duels, that amount of duels are enough for daily award.

That being said, I will ask that duel allocation is checked.

Sorry, Jasenka, but I disagree with you on there being enough duels...slower than a snail.

I just won no 1 in People category after only 39 duels. This must be a new record.

John, you're lucky to have had 39 duels. I just checked and it's nuts. I had 6 photos in competition for June 1st. The most duels any of those images got was 25 duels! 25!!!! How is that fair, or right? Two got 21 duels, two got 24 duels, one got 25 duels and one got only 17 duels.

That's not just slow. That's wrong.

Well, well, well.....that photo that had 18 duels when I was last online, 13 hours ago? Well, it's now got 19 duels. One duel in more than 13 hours.

Wait. It gets better. That photo that had only 21 duels. Well, it STILL has only 21 duels AND it took #3 for the day in its category. NO DUELS IN 21 HOURS and it takes #3 for the day.

Beyond weird.

I try to be conscience about skipping voting on challenges. I doubt that it does any good, but it's my own personal protest...

I was doing that too .... until it dawned on me that that actually makes the challenge duels hang around even longer. Best to vote and get them out of the way :-)

The problem with repeatedly slow duels and excessively contests are really getting out of hand. Wouldn't it be high time that the management did something about it?

The photos I submitted in June .... 13 photos all submitted on either June 1st (five photos), 2nd (four photos), or 3rd (four photos) ..... the most duels any of those images have is 40. One photo has 40 duels, submitted on June 1st. Then it drops down to 30, for one photo only (also submitted on June 1st), then it drops down to 26 and below for the rest. I have a photo that still only has 19 duels and it was also submitted on June 1st.

(I have to go back to an image submitted on May 29th for an image with more than 100 duels.)

The new day for submitting starts in about 6 hours time. The first one to submit a photo will win the day award! :-)

Again, thank you all. We have made some changes that should speed up category duels.
