Hi Sherry

Can the report team make a push towards cleaning up the Traditional Art section, i have very little skills in this area but love to look at what is being created. This is being spoiled buy a number of users submitting incorrect images.

The most obvious is the use of photoshop images to then create a drawing or painting, the next problem is users submitting images of anything that looks like art but has not been created by the user.

Submissions in this content type must be a photo or a scan of a physical piece of art created by the contributing member. No other content is allowed in the image (i.e. frames, stands, people, etc) – it must be the Art only. Categories include: Painting, Sculpture, Calligraphy, Mixed Media, and Drawing.

Take this particular Pixoto member:

http://www.pixoto.com/miroslav.predic

He certainly did not create these works of art:

http://www.pixoto.com/images-traditio...

http://www.pixoto.com/images-traditio...

http://www.pixoto.com/images-traditio...

There are so many of them his whole profile needs looking at.

OK... so I can "sort of" understand how people might misunderstand and vote for the first guy's images that are actually photographs of public sculptures. At least the voter would look and see it's a sculpture and not question origin.
What is absolutely ridiculous is the number of people who voted for the second guy's images of PEOPLE. Who looks at the cateogory sculpture and votes for people? OR, even if you don't look at the category, and you see a photo of a person beside a photo of a sculpture, or piece of art, and not question whether one is in the wrong category.
Do you remember Sesame street? "one of these things is not like the other..."

Hi Sandra

No i had not seen it. I have only recently found this section and so was dismayed by the amount of incorrectly submitted images. I cannot understand why Pixoto cannot pick these problem up earlier it only takes me a few minutes to weed out the non art forms.

Hi everyone, I went through this weeks submissions in traditional art and made reports on them. The process is different when they need to be moved from one content type (Traditional Art) to another (Photography), so the report team has to take care of them this time. I will ask Jason if he wants me to start helping with this type of thing as well. Thank you for your reports here in the community.

I reported these problems several days ago and are yet to be resolved, i thought the report team were targeted to resolve within 48 hours.

It is not good enough...please flag this up to Jason

I reported every wrong sculpture for the whole year a few days ago. Nothings been done yet- infact there are 11 new ones added this week. Mine's the only one qualified to be there this week. I'm so sick of this. I make what I post.
