I am so tired of you not looking before you change a catagory of a pic,You charge me to be pro, but don't take the time to look before you switch categories. You make money off my pics, but can't hire someone to check and see if someone is reporting and obvious catagory issue, or if someone is just upset because my pic was doing better than theirs. I posted a field of wildflowers in Yellowstone, it was doing well, someone reported it and it was moved to flower gardens, It was a wildflower field in Yellowstone National Park.... you don't even look before you change them do you. How do I delete my account and stop billing?

if it was in flowers then the category wouldn't matter. Perhaps you had it in Nature Close up which is wrong for any kind of flower?

Perhaps, just an idea but before moving images an email should be sent allowing the submitter to argue their case and get an explanation? Some of the categories can be very close. I understand this could be time consuming but I can see some people loosing a lot of points.

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... if this is the photo then I could see the confusion... it is hard to imagine this as a field or meadow, when you can not see any landscape to speak of... all I see are flowers and nothing to suggest they are even wildflowers unless you are a botanist. the search words also have flower garden in the description. the other possibility is http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... and it is in flowers in the wild where I think it belongs.

If those are the two pictures in question then I would say they should be in flowers. To me a field is not a close up but a wider view.

The suggestion of asking for the PHOTOGRAPHERS input prior to moving a photo to a different category is a great one. I, too, have had photos moved to another category that the photo simply did not fit in. As a result, it did poorly.

The problem with asking is that there is a great possibility that awards will be given that may not be correct. And this means others will lose out on the awards.

Good point. Maybe we should all just remember that these "awards" don't hang on our wall, they don't serve any real purpose, and at the end of the day, they haven't increased our wealth one little bit :)

True, but if you are second say, and the photo in first place is incorrectly categorised it could affect the prize money. If the first shot is later recatogorised the shot in second place is not then awarded the first place, nor any of the other placed shots moved up.
