I'm very upset with you guys! Why do you continue deleting my photos after I post them???? That is very unfortunate as every photo I post on here is MINE! Do you have something against a great photo? I'm almost to the point of having my acount deleted as this makes the 4th or 5th photo you guys have removed off my page! Please explained why you continue to do this or I WILL delete my account and share my work else where!

Joshua, have you checked your email? When Pixoto deletes one of our photos, they send us an email with an explanation. You should likely check the email program you use for Pixoto, including the Spam folder as well as the InBox in case their emails maybe got flagged by your email program as spam.

There are two common reasons why Pixoto deletes photos: 1) they're a duplicate of photos previously posted, and 2) there is some sort of watermark or text on them (like a datestamp or copyright information). Both of those are against the rules.

Its also possible that you are submitting photos that are very similar. They will also sometimes remove photos for this reason. But Lenore is right, they always send email. check your spam and or promotions folder.

Thank you Lenore, Jeff and Terry for helping Joshua.

Joshua, we do not allow personal watermarks on images. You are free to submit images without personal watermark.

Pixoto doesn't checks if the submissions follow the rules or not.They won't get deleted until somebody reports.

I am aware that the people of the Report Team is very difficult to have access to all submitted images. However, I think it must be very well trained in making decisions about the deletion of photos, especially when it comes to change categories and some other rules.

It happened, and still it is a practice that is the right category moving pictures are wrong because the report sends someone out to protect the rules, but for personal reasons. It is very harmful, as well as the application of criteria over-presented to only some individuals (not mentioned at Pixoto site as over-presented) while others are allowed to repeat the same subject a day by day. In two and a half months, these are set up almost as many pictures of the same motives as much to those who are prohibited from certain object during ten months.

And, at the end , I think, that anyone who wants quality in own house should be priced creativity theirs contributors, and even encourage unleashed measures.

I had a few of mine deleted saying that someone reported they were in the wrong category. However, they weren't. One was a picture of my daughter and I know for a fact I had her under children.

Photos in the wrong category are not deleted and should not be deleted. They're just recategorized.

Kelli, I checked your account and I found one photo that had a watermark on it...that may be the cause of your other photos being deleted... watermarks will disqualify them from being in duels.
