Votes not being credited

There's a problem with voting. I've just voted on about 30 image duels and received about 3 credits. If this is your "bad voting" algorithm in action, it's flawed beyond belief - every vote was carefully considered.

Curious...did you actually look at any of the photos you voted on to see if the duel you voted on was shown?
It's more likely a credit problem though.... I think even when votes aren't counted that the credits still add up...

No looking at the way it's adding up, I'm losing credit for about 1 in 3 votes. I suspect this has been going on for a while as I've lately noticed that although I count my votes when trying to resubmit an image, I never seem to get the total right...it's always less. Obviously this is more noticeable when I do 10 votes to resubmit one image, but when I do 30 and count them I'll often end up with 24-27 credits. It's also not consistent, as sometimes I will get all 10 or 30 - that's why I think the voting algorithm is throwing out perfectly good votes.

Thanks for reporting. We are looking into and trying to replicate. We are also going to add a credit counter to the duel screen so that you can make sure your clicks are counting.

Can you also make sure that when you log out and in that your credits are the same as before (it's possible they get added on the back end but don't display on the front).

I just had 19 points. I refreshed to make sure, still 19. I did one vote then checked again. Now I have 1 credit? That doesn't make sense at all, because even if I had used them and the front end didn't record that, it should leave me with 9 plus my one vote, so I should have 10. I don't know of any action I could take to use 9 credits, it's either 5 or 10 for any boost/unpause.

Logged out, logged back in, showing one vote. Counted 19 more votes to make it 20, closed voting screen and checked votes, I have 19 now....one lost. Then we suspected it was only giving the last set of votes, so I voted 3 more times...but this time it was correct and gave me 22. Something very strange is happening with the system.

30 more votes gave me 26 credits. I have no idea how many credits I've lost to this, but at the rate I vote it's going to be a ton...rather annoying!

Same thing happens for the credits which we get on commenting for good ones, it does't add up properly to Total credits. i.e., if i had 9 credits, sometimes it shows 12, and when i goto submit an image it tells you don't have sufficient credits. Then have to refresh the page, and it allows to upload.

And Darrel Raw's right I too have found that problem :).

I noticed that, about a month ago, the credit can go to negative value. (-11 for example) Then with the new votes, first I have to cover this gap.

I have not been negative since they fixed the resubmit allowing you to go negative issue. This is definitely not a case of being in negative.
