Why is a 2013 image being dueled??

Why would one of my 2013 images be dueled?? That seems sort of silly! Just noticed tonight that one of my 2013 images had "lost" two points in total--which brought it down to 699 from 701. Sort of counter-productive to duel an image that is now nearly two years old. I thought duels stopped at least after the year's contests were posted??

Oh--that image sat at 703 for a year and a half--now it is at 699. Am I splitting hairs? Maybe--but I sure don't have that many 700 point images to want to lose one! Jasenka?? I know that images can be dueled within the year--but this seems silly.

Karen, please try this thread, wonder whether your 'duel' is the same?

I went to your thread--very similar issues indeed. And I don't understand why an image that has already been awarded its standing, two year ago, would be brought back in to duel against this year's images. More images now added than two years ago--why bring up old images?? Ugh!

Hello Karen, here is reply from Jason about same issue on different thread.

"There is always a chance that an image will get additional duels. We do not take photos out of the circulation in the duel system. Due to annual awards we are getting A LOT more duels than normal so it becomes increasingly likely that older images will get duels. "

I hope this helps.

There are always "a lot more duels" around the time for annual awards. BUT I still think those duels should be against the images that are up for this year's awards--not images that have already gotten awards from a couple years back! Just doesn't make sense--no way, no how! Sorry, Jasenka! :)

Still doesn't seem to make much sense--to bring an image back from over a year ago for dueling?? Especially when there are so many more images now than there were two years ago! Annual awards non-withstanding. I can understand that a lot more duels will occur before the annual awards--but shouldn't those be images that have not already been given "annual awards??" lol So, no, Jasenka--that really doesn't help as it seems pointless!
