This pathetic voting system needs sorting.

This voting system is the most pathetic system I have ever seen, over and over we are being duelled with the same pictures, it really does need sorting, you can't tell me that only a handful of pictures need votes in each category. This site is really going down the pan.

With over a million votes from 5000 voters each week the ability for one person to influence the results simply isn't there.

The above is part of a statement given by Jason to someone's previous post, if their are that many votes, how come we keep getting the same one's over and over again? it's a joke.

I concur Graham it seems like things have gotten worse I am a PRO member and my images get to a certain level ,Stop,then everybody else passes me by. then proceed into the toilet! I wish they would fix it and leave it the hell alone! Work on something important like getting rid of the blatant cheating that goes on here and get some f,ing employees to deal with all the bulls#%t like the pathetic report team( 2 people is my guess doing it in there spare time) everything seems so unimportant like WE are an imposition or were interrupting their golf game.

Hello Martin, can you please post images in question that stop dueling?
We deal with users who do not follow rules according to our terms of services, and our report team (which is more then 2 person) deal with reports. We do get hundreds of reports daily so we can not act on report as fast as we would all like. I hope you understand.

Jasenka, Please know that this is NOT directed at you!! please look at the duel history for this image it wins to a high ranked image then they duel it immediately after with the same image then it loses. its like the image can never gain ground because it duels to be average!

I have noticed that if I put up anything American in nature it gets voted down against anything with an international flavor. Even if the image is of very poor quality. And to be honest, the flagrant bending of the rules seems to be allowed more often with international users. I believe we've very much become a minority and, even tho this sounds paranoid, we seem to be getting voted right out of membership.

I take no notice of where in the world the picture is from only if I like it, which should be the case for all voters.

Scroll the history of this picture, the number of repeat duels is beyond belief.

I have noticed that since I went Pro a few weeks ago that my recent submissions stop earning any points at all after a couple of days or so, even when I have won a couple of awards.
I also loose the option to dual boost them as well, days after the original date of submission.
I feel that paying for Pro has not been worth it as I got better service when I was a non Pro member.
I have also lost points suddenly for no reason. This has happened a few times.

I am brand new to Pixoto. So far I am glad I didn't go pro. I 've had to report many images with watermarks, borders and huge issue with not being in the right categories. Also a back button should be allowed as many watermarks got by me! I have many friends who use Pixoto also with the same complaints. I can see this could be good but it looks like it is not up to par.

I know it can be disconcerting but there are a variety of reasons why an image will play the same image multiple times. We have intentionally not put checks into the system to prevent it. Since each of the voters are different we believe that every vote is adding clarity to the ImageScore. In an ideal world we would not have images play each other many times - but given the size of certain categories as well as other things that limit the pool of images that can be played - it is unavoidable.

Agree...And I think the problem is not on the duel of same images, but rather on losing all over again in those duels. I think if the image was winning, they might be even grateful to Pixoto. :)

I agree Garces and Garces.
I would like to see if you win awards at certain point levels then you should be able to keep those points and not lose them over time.
I just lost 6 points today because I decided to put a winning shot up for some extra duals.
I understand that my image lost some duals today but that should not mean that your image should lose the points already earnt.
Pixoto advertises that our images will earn points over time and SLOWLY. That should not mean that you lose points slowly either.
I understand how the vote systems works and I vote at least twice a week..and fairly I will say.
I was hoping that being a Pro member this would not happen but alas it still does.
This needs to be fixed please.
This is the one area that I am very disappointed in.

Hello Lovestorms, if photo win duel it will gain Image Score if it lost duel (not counting at the beginning when even losing duel will result in rise in image score) it will lose Image Score.
This is the same for Pro or non-Pro users.
