good catch Jay. I feel confident between all of us we can keep this under control. We will never eliminate it as that is the nature of things sometime but if we don't give in or give up we can do this if we stick together. Once again, good work.

Wow. This guy is a real #$%^%$#.
They need to delete all of the accounts and ban both of them from Pixoto. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Pixoto I trust you will respond appropriately.

I even left messages on their photos telling them of their error but they kept on doing the same thing over and over again. It's easy to catch them because I see them on duels and thought that Ive seen that pix already, then I find the photo and check the tog's profile and BINGO.

Unfortunately these type of people will never learn as they don't feel they are doing anything wrong. They feel they are better than other people and that the rules don't apply to them. All we can do is keep after them and maybe they will figure out it will be easier to just follow the rules rather than trying to get around them all the time.

It makes sense you being a photographer as you seem to have a photographic mind. :)

I also leave messages but they are not so nice as Jay's. I say: shame on you, stop cheating etc. but they don't care. At least their friends will see these messages on fb lol

Plus many of his photos are dups that have smoke from either another image or a graphic rendering.

Same woman. Same pic. Different smoke.= Photoshopped Duplicate

I've reported these photos many times and they should be in photoshop art because the smokes are fake....BUT no action has ever done to these fake smokes

I am not sure they (Pixoto) follow all the topics in the forum so If nothing is done in 24 hours we can send an email to report@pixoto.com. Those are the people that investigate these violations. It's to bad they don't respond by tagging the topic as "answered" That way we know and don't have to keep checking back. If the violators keep coming back then we will keep reporting them.

I'm not sure about the smoke. I wouldn't expect our report team to catch that. I just looked at them and still think that is real (which ultimately is good enough for me).

Yes - sorry I have been crazy busy lately - but I see a light at the end of the tunnel (just hoping it's not a train).

this tog keeps on flipping and cropping his images. I think he resubmitted the images which were removed by pixoto

How many times will Pixoto allow someone to cheat before removing their account?

This user cheats almost every day. You delete the flipped dups and he re uploads them. These 2 photos were uploaded one day after the other.

Ive seen that too. maybe the photog was not informed of his error that's why he continues to resubmit his removed images. Should all these cheaters be reprimanded? They must be.
