I noticed this today when looking through them all...almost always show up on the left. In this particular picture, I think it was always on the left. Why is that?

Hmmm... I must admit that if I'm on the fence about voting on two photos, I tend to vote on the right since it's easier for me. I blame on my carpal tunnel, :-(

Hello Cheryl, upon checking page you linked I could see that your image appears on both sides. Image position (left or right) in duels is random.

I hope this helps.

I checked the many of my images...and almost exclusively, my photo appears on the left unless I am up against myself and then one has to be on the right. Count them...you'll see...check most of my images...the vast majority are on the left. If you have like 50 duels and 45 are on the left then that is the vast majority.

For instance, when I posted this link there had only been 14 duels and everyone of them was on the left w/my photo.

This picture I think I counted 7 times out of 60...

I could site a whole bunch more but I guess I'm probably wasting my time.

I find most people vote on the right...I am on a few forums with other photographers from pixoto and they all tell me that...so what's up with my photos constantly being on the left. I was amazed to see this...I think what caught my attention is that I was going through a couple of them in the last few days and happened to notice how mine were almost exclusive on the left. You can say they are not but the proof is in the pudding. I will have to check the link I posted the other day to this topic to see how many ended up on the right after I posted...however, when I wrote I think there had only been 1 time on the right.

Prakash, I don't get to vote for my own photos....but I can see the complete history because I have a pro account so I can see every duel my photos have as the voter sees it...it's one of the perks of paying for a pro account...

I know that Cheryl, I was just kidding. I realised you have a pro account and can view the history. Sorry if I created any confusion :)

there should have been 12 on the right or at least a better ratio if this was random. And the majority of my pictures recently have been this way. No excuses...what gives?

Hi Cheryl - your photo is shown on the left because it is usually "image 1" in our algorithm (most images are for the first 25 duels or so). This shouldn't really mean anything to you - it's just the way the algorithm works. That said the important thing to realize is that images are ALWAYS randomly shown on either the left or the right of the image duel screen. So just because it is on the left in the history does not mean it actually appeared on the left when the user voted on it.

I hope this helps.

I thought when you were a pro the information originally said you see the duels exactly as they appear to the voter? Also, now that I have complained about this, I can no longer see my duels....not since last night. Very frustrating. Also, I know my pictures used to be on both sides all the time...even the first 25. So have I been blocked from seeing my duels side by side now because I complained?

Well it's been over 2 days now since I could see my duels...funny how I reported my pictures always being on the left and then suddenly, I can no longer see my duels?

Cheryl, no one can see image detail page (not only you). We are working on fixing it and it should be fixed probably tomorrow.

But if you check the majority...they are almost always on the left...I do occasionally have them on the right...I guess that's when you get to see them...I just found it kind of strange...I started noticing it just recently...

I think that Pixoto's the algorithm works well....when there is sufficient amount voters doing their job. Lately there wasn't and whole nice system doesn't work properly. That's why too many photos stayed left side. I have noticed...when picture gets more than 600 pints, its start being randomly left or right, after reached 650 or over 700, pics will be on right side mostly. Pixoto algorithm isn't any rocketscience, more like lottery. Less voters are causing hiccups:o) What you are think about that? Have a nice weekend...they will fix this way or other, sooner or later...Thanks Jasenka anyway:o)
