these two images I have reported duplicates or very similar Many times . since these two are still up here don't blame me if I submit almost identical images recently because these two might be considered unique and just fine

they are almost 98% very similar if not considered duplicates.

It seems even with the new people they hired they can't keep up with the reports they get. or the just ignore many of the reports. It sometimes seems they only do something about it when we complain many times here in the public forums. How about it Pixoto. Can you step up your game a notch? From reading the community forums it appears the problem is getting worse rather than better. Especially Instagram pics.

Hi Andrew,

We address every reported image as they come in. It's the same process whether it is posted within the forum or from the 'report this image' buttons throughout the site.

From the time an image is reported to when we review the report is usually within a day... longer if there is a weekend involved. Most of the time we address reported images within hours of them being reported.

The new categories we are planning to release should help some of these issues. If you have suggestions on how to make this better we'd love to hear it.

You can read about the new categories here: http://blog.pixoto.com/2012/07/new-ca...

Thank you for the explanation Amanda. I guess the ones above that Jay was talking about slipped through the cracks. It was way longer than 24-48 hours. For the most part you and the team are doing a great job. You can't get them all so thats where we come in and try to help by bringing these issues to your attention. Keep up the good work. I am sure better solutions are ahead.

i titled unwittingly coz the tog might not be aware of it. In my experience I sent messages to a few instagrammers on pixoto all those who have replied to me said that they were not aware that their photos are submitted to pixoto. their photos automatically uploads to pixoto when they submit them the instagram web. these togs even feel sorry about their photos winning against other images - and they are not aware of it. so I instructed them PERSONALLY how to unlink pixoto from their instagram accounts.

It's been a problem, Im not sure but I think a solution is on the way.

Hi Jay- we are looking at a way to provide instagram users a way to selectively upload images to Pixoto. Basically instagram users will need to place #pixoto within the title.

We don't have a release date for this yet but it's a high priority for us.

Good news. Because I suspect that so many precious votes have been wasted on those unwittingly-submitted Instagram images.

Unconsciously when the image is sent from the mobile and I do not think unconsciously when the photos from your camera and send it as a polished mobile Instagram

Ok so lets clear this cheating rubbish up. The above photo is mine, I am no cheat and I want my pictures to be judged fairly as this is how one learns to takes a better picture and see where he/she has gone wrong. I made an innocent mistake about posting my own images, to my own instagram account, which i have not posted on before and am completely unaware that this links to my pixoto account. I had no idea this was being done and I think it is most unfair that moderators / picture police are so quick to judge innocent parties such as myself of cheating. You may have seen that i took some other pictures throughout today also which got uploaded and have subsequently deleted. I think the comments that are made on my images are harsh and on the verge of bullying if anything!!! Maybe take a little time to check the situation before publicly targeting and accusing someone of doing something that was never the intention.

The simple answer to all the issues caused by instagram is NOT to allow it all, then people won't make mistakes unwittingly......

I agree however allowances must be made and a clear instruction on how to disassociate your account in the instagram app, which is currently unavailable making it less obvious that pictures are being uploaded automatically.
