Suddenly the "management" has decided to troll through my portfolio of pictures and remove some of my photos they deem to be similar. - none of which are in competitions right now, most haven't been for months. These are all different photos, some are simply one black and white the other color which is SUPPOSED to be ok, (some competitions even ask for it) and other photos may be of the same subject just different lenses/exposures.

If part of the program is STOCK PHOTOS FOR SALE, and the photos are not in the SAME contest...WHO CARES if what is in my portfolio is similar??????????

I do not know why you are moaning, look at these 2 images:

https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...
https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...

both are in the same category and they are duplicates, you should move the b&w image to the b&w category.

don't you think these 2 images are similar:

https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...
https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...

what about these 2 duplicates , you should move the b&w image to the b&w category.

https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...
https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...

and these 2 duplicates:

https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...
https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...

https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...

Jack you've been a very busy boy these last couple of weeks playing hall monitor. Have you had time to actually put up any pictures...

it seems some people don't put their own photos in pixoto but they spend a lot of time reporting other people Also i saw both photos of the truck and they were definitely different exposures from different angles no more similar than two different photos of the same model or the 4 million shots of the moon or single flower which has its own category

Thank you James, you are right about the truck but I didn't care for the other one anyway so it's ok. I know of so many people with so many similar pictures that don't get the scrutiny I have this last week. I'm sure that is more than coincidence but what can you do...probably an "angry model".

why do people join a photo web site and yet post no pictures but feel free to voice their opinions of others and their photos

Hello Theresa, I'm sorry you feel this way. You are allowed to post one color and one black and white version of same image, but black and white version needs to be submitted to Black and white category.

The management doesn't go through users images, but we do reply on users to report images, and if they are indeed very similar or duplicate, report team will remove later one submitted.

I hope this helps.

Once again...Harassment. It's a LOCK GATE, an industrial mechanism, not a building, what the heck was wrong with putting it in Industrial objects??

Hello Theresa, since gate is part of a building image belong in Building and architecture category.

I hope this helps.

That is Not a building. The only thing you can remote call a building is the little tower on the left. Those are concrete walls to hold the water back as it fills the locks.

We will agree to disagree. I deleted it so the problem is solved.

I think pixoto must add more sub categories in a black and white category )

Since photos duel within a category, adding subcategories won't mean anything.

Theresa, I would bet someone is/some people are watching you closely and reporting, and it may be based on something you said here in the community that they didn't like. (Hmm, could that be why some people recently have been commenting and/or suggesting that they want people who comment here to only use their Pixoto account name? I have actually watched people CHANGE from using their Pixoto account names (recognizable names) here because they fear they will suffer retaliation.)

I thought everybody in here was here through their pixoto identities .now I know differently anyone not here with a pixoto identity should be barred from commenting
this world explain some of the harassment I have seen in here by people without pics , to criticise other peoples photos without showing your own work is not fair

It seems you should have known differently based on all the replies you got to one of your suggestions 'See Who Is Talking' that suggested members of Get Satisfied for Pixoto should have to use their Pixoto account names here.

Robert Rodriguez you are referring to my" see who is talking " question I have gone back through that and there is nothing there to indicate that it is possible to do it , let alone that people are doing it . the first time I become aware of it was with Bridgettes response above . the reason behind the request was that when some criticises a photo of mine or someone else, was so I could go see their work make a personal judgement of their level of skill to see if they had something to teach me I still can't find your shots I'm sure they are there I just don't know how to find them ,
