Why is it often you end up duelling with only one other photo? I have observed a duel between one of my shots and one other only against each other for at least 20+ duels. Suggest maybe put in the algorithm that two photos can only file against each other a finite amount otherwis you are getting very skewed results

This is an interesting problem and something we are looking at. That said, it may be that some of the top images need to be dueled against each other many times with different users voting in each case so we can determine which is the best, 2nd, 3rd, etc. There will always be times when images are paired against each other many times in order to determine the winner.

Does that make sense?

Hi Kustin, makes sense but surely not against the same image and only that image 20+ times!

Darrin - there are reasons why this might happen (rarely - but possible). Can you post the image in question so we can investigate.

Sure, this image: http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... was pitted against another image - sorry I can't find the link many many times.

I see the problem. There are only 2 live images in that whole subcategory (apparently it's enormously unpopular to post pictures of grooms). So the only other image to pair it against is that one. We might be able to fix this behavior but I'll have to get with our math guru to figure out the best way.
