It’s so sad... loved this site. Hardly even visit anymore. Whenever I enter a contest these days there’s a bigger chance that my entry is disqualified rather than entered. I’m on several photography sites and never had an entry disqualified anywhere else. So many problems on the site. It’s like there’s no one in charge here. Sad to see this happening on what once was the coolest site out there.

Disqualification is done by the contest moderator. Not Pixoto.  If you are unhappy with the outcome, you should rate the moderator accordingly.

Hi all, we will have some significant changes on the site coming out in February, and hopefully, that will make people use Pixoto more.

Don't give up hope. We have gone through a transition period.  Expect big changes soon.  We have numerous changes on the near horizon.

One of Pixoto's big problems are the slow handling of reports. The Report Team tries to handle reports in 24-48 hours, however often it takes longer than that. If reports are not handles in 5 days, you can post on this Community site and ask for clarification. As we all know, even the minimum reaction time is too long! Pixoto has to come up with some way to nullify wrongful duels in such cases. Same goes when awards goes to images that the Report team hasn’t had time to deal with. Duels are the core of Pixoto and still images duel against others that are in the wrong category, duplicates and so on. And to this date, the member that is playing by the rules, suffers the losses. Not very logical or fair for that matter. I get that the Report Team needs some time to deal with the reports, but it can’t be right that the innocent part pays the price.
