why aren't fish matched with fish? every other animal was paired up with at least 25% of same animals. My fish picture = 0 other fish. That doesn't seem right at all.

You have to duel fish with other fish. Fish can't be compared with exotic animals because they will always lose. All the other animals duel with up to 50% of their own species.
By never dueling fish- the all time leaderboard is a mess of junk pictures and good pictures at the top because they were never dueled with each other. There are lots of pictures that just shouldnt be above other pictures.

And take the birds out of the "all time" fish leader board. They've been in there for like 4 years!

Hello J, since there are a low number of fish images submitted fish images will only rarely be paired up with other fish images. Besides, all images in one category compete for awards regardless of category so it is irrelevant in which subcategory image is posted - what is relevant is a category.

I checked your image's imageduel history page and your last submitted fish image dueled with 3 fish images out of 41 duels (7,31%). Since this week only 5 images of fish are published out of 323 images (1,5%) in the overall Animal category it is more than accepable percentage. If you check previous time frames you can see a similar percentage of submitted fish images in the overall Animal category so it is normal for images in smaller subcategories to have fewer duels with the same subcategory because of lack of images to duel within the same subcategory.

Regarding birds in Fish leaderboard - it is irrelevant in which subcategory images is published, but I will scroll through all time fish leaderboard and move birds to their subcategory.
