Hello Dragana, first image does have a bit slower votes, while on other votes number is expected for such score. I will forward link to first image to be checked if something is off. I will let you know when I get reply.

Hi Dragana, in 5 hours of voting you got 25 duels, and you still have 20 hours of voting ahead (before daily awards are assigned), so if this dynamic of voting continues you could have 125 duels (5 duels per hour) at the time daily awards are assigned (note: I'm not saying you will get that much votes but I'm just saying that there is still much time for duels to arrive - also images reach their approximate position on leaderboard at about 50 duels, while more duels are for fine change of image score).

I hop this helps.

Jasenka, no it doesn't help. I knew I'll get consolation award 20% of the day. I had an excellent score in less than 50 image duels and than the voting stopped. Believe me I know all about algorithm counting. This wasn't couple of months ago. Pixoto favorize stock images with colorful aesthetic.

I have experienced a stop in voting on two of my images posted about 7/2. They seemed to stop after a day up.

Dragana, upon checking yesterday leaderboard for category your image was posted in, I can see other images too (among top 10 had 50 duels and several some less the 50), so your image had similar number of duels as other images in category.

I think its just people getting sick of the way the rules are not being enforced. Its not the very successful photographers but the others trying to get a photo in some kind of an award category being out voted by a photo that shouldn't be there. So they get disgusted and don't vote or enter their photos. Let s be real all Pixoto really cares about is the amount of photos on this site that they can sell. Also here's something that I bet not many know. If your like me and your not interested in selling your work and you opt out of putting your photos on the market. If you enter your photo in a CONTEST your giving up your right to not have them sell your photos. So having contest benefit's Pixoto. The way things are going this maybe be the last year this site will be as we knew it. I hope they fix this I love the site and all the people showing their work here. Its worldwide competition with great photographer you cant really find the anywhere else

Pixoto is doing nothing concerning the matter of slow voting, don't give me 20% of the day tomorrow, this is not fair at all..

Same too... Even some of my images at top 5 of the day barely reach 600 image score or on the low 600 with only 30+ duels, last time on the normal voting rate, such low 600 score can't even hit no. 10

Hi all, duel number were a bit on slower side, but not by much, they should return to close to normal rate soon.

Hello Dragana, please check how Pixoto works here - http://www.pixoto.com/about

"My photo is not paused but isn't getting any more duels. Why?

The ultimate number of votes that an image gets is dependent on its early dueling history. The more early wins an image has the higher its ImageScore will go and the more duels it will ultimately receive. The highest rated unpaused images on the site will end up with four times (or more) duels than the lowest. After the first 50 duels or so the change in ImageScore with each additional duel slows down. Essentially the first 50 or so duels define the approximate area of the leaderboard an image should be and the remaining duels refine that placement. We are primarily focused on refining the scores of the top image – which is the reason for the disproportionate number of duels to those types of images.

Our algorithms try to get new images up to the same level of votes as other images on the site as fast as possible. Sometimes this takes just a day – sometimes it can take a week. After an image reaches the same level of votes as other images with a similar ImageScore the image will only rarely be put in new duels."

Hello Jasenka, no need for any more bloody check in, I know well the name of the game..don't ever talk to me about how Pixoto works. Pixoto has favs among same images x 10000.

Dragana, image didn't get place award because at the time awards were assigned it didn't have high enough score to be in first 10 places.
