Have noticed that voting on my images is at a stand still. I also had an image that I would presume was paused, but did not have a pause button on it - it had 7 votes, 5 losses, 2 wins, so would have been paused. I've resubmitted it, and its moved along, but the others I submitted don't seem to be getting any duels...

I have the same problem. I haven't posted in a while since a few days ago, but some of my images, although I clicked for additional duels, some are paused on 9, 12 and 17 duels after two days. I never had this problem, and the images are doing well on other sites.

I wonder if the 92 community challenges currently in the voting stage are impacting on this.

It could be the challenges... Seemed like a lot closed 10/31 and 11/1...

I agree with you, Terry and Susan. Category duels will certainly be influenced by the challenges - this time I think the Promoted Challenges are the culprits: in the next 5-7 days 117 286 votes must be cast. If you add the other 89 remaining challenges' votes to it, I can only predict that the number of duels in the category competition will be slowed down with low scoring leading images as the end result. It has been suggested before (especially by you, Terry) that management needs to take the effect of community challenges on normal Pixoto duels into account, but without any avail. I can only hope that this issue will be addressed soon ...

Hello Susan, we are usually having lower number of votes on turn of the month, and since it is weekend and Halloween, deficit of users voting influence number of received duels. I will forward the information to the management to be checked, thank you for reporting.

I have just deleted a load that stalled after a handful of duels. No idea why the fact that it is a weekend and Halloween has any bearing on it - it's hardly a major celebration that people would flock to in droves and leave their computers for! What a bizarre response!

Maybe the deficit of users might well be the fact that people are frustrated with this place, and that a certain group can no longer post water-lilies and bridges, so don't bother voting ;-)
