Do you mean getting close to a 500 ImageScore? We pause images that are not statistically likely to reach the top 10% of images (i.e. imagescore above 570 or so). We do this because we need to focus more votes to find the winners of each weeks contest.

Hope this helps.

Dear Jason: Would you be so kind as to unpause this image for me? I don't want to spend credits unpausing it :-)

90% of the people who saw it vote for it, but the greedy algorithm paused it... Man! It's chewing up all of my credits!

Jason: It's a common thing (rather than an exception) that images are paused regardless of their vote results (I've called this the greedy algorithm issue). I've sent you all three notes regarding this problem. Before an image actually "takes off" by itself I have to spend about 20 credits unpausing it, sometimes more. Most images are paused with a wins/duels ratio >66% (2/3), and the worst case is 90%. Unpause my image when you're done, please :-)
