Why is Pixoto stopping me from voting for the image I want to vote for, twice I have had a message saying that our voters don't agree with me, I was under the impression it was a free vote, maybe I was wrong.

Now I have had a third message come up saying that the voters don't agree with me and I have had my voting suspended, what are Pixoto playing at? or is this a way of stopping us voting of our choice?

I have had the same problem - I wanted to skip some photos (I personally don't like to vote on portraits) and I got the same message.- I do find that quite frustrating....

It's a joke, I got a picture of two birds, I voted on the one I liked and got told I couldn't. Pixoto have excelled themselves this time.

It doesn't help Jasenka, it's pretty pathetic.

Well Jasenka, I guess the thanks I really get from Pixoto is a suspension of my voting. Since I had not run across this quality check until this afternoon, I made the assumption that the images in those duels would clearly have a "best" and "worst". Well, that's not true and now I feel like a fool for supporting you guys.

Maybe they should just flag up the picture they want us to vote for to save us from making our mind up.

This really is getting stupid now, I have just had two pictures come up one of a stain glass window and one of pencils, I voted for the stain glass and got the warning again, how the hell are we supposed to vote if we can't make a simple choice, I hate pictures of pencils.

Category - *People* I tried to vote on the couple - yet again I got the message :-( Generally I skip the people pictures because often it appears that you are voting on beauty vs photography and I refuse to go that. Since I am frustrated with getting the "Whoa" message when I skip portraits, I decided to vote on what was for me an easy choice. I have only just started uploading pics to this site, I am just really frustrated that's all.

Thank you all for your thoughts. Based on your feedback we have decided to do away with the warning message and make sure the choice between false pair images is much more clear.

We will have this fix in place in the next 24 hours. In the meantime if your voting gets suspended please post a link to your profile here and we will reinstate your voting privileges.

thank you, i understand you are trying to improve the voting system and stop people from clicking without looking, but skipping should not be affected

Definitely not - that is a bug.

Nedeljko - if there is one thing that our experience with our new voter attention detection system has taught us is that some people have VERY different points of view when voting. There are a lot of reasons why an image that most of us would find great - others would find something not to like. Reading the comments here has made this very clear.
