We only assign awards to the top 20% of images. Because there were only 8 images submitted in that category we did not assign a #2 award. I hope this helps.

How come only 8 image submitted on that category, strange.. i check 1-2 hours before daily award time is around 15-20 images (you can check your log). Seems they jumping resubmit again into the next day or move to another category because they feel not gonna win daily award. it is Unfair to image that already have good score on the day.

I have an idea how about lock the image that already submit so they cann't resubmit / delete their image until passing the daily award time, only the pixoto can delete or move on the image if the image not matching the rules. It's just an idea.

that's a bad idea Simon. we already have enough not able to delete picture that got 5% award up. it's still up to the pic owner to resubmit pic before it get award for the day if it didn't do well. how about resubmit your pic again maybe you'll get lucky and your pic will get award that it deserve.

Kahriz, So you want let people jumping around into another category/move to another day and screw up the daily scoring position ? because what i learn here is mostly people chasing the daily award and they not much care about weekly and monthly.

If that so, hmm.. i will do the same with people did :)

i'm sorry but i didnt say anything about jumping around into another category. and yeah you can resubmit your photo into another day but you should stick to the right category. because if its in wrong category, i for one will report your pic.

"Kahriz, So you want let people jumping around into another category" this one?

yeah i've read it. and i don't want people to jump around into another category. i want people to stick into the right category. Got it? it's not even about me wanting people to stick into the right category, it's a rule in here just to remind you maybe you forgot or you're just playing dumb.

Actually I think it's a good idea to lock the pics in for the day that they are submitted, they can be released after awards.

People compete against 13 pics and have earned a 2nd placing only to see 5 of them delete/resubmit leaving 8 and the 2nd place winner without an award.

If a pic earns a place 5% or greater then they can ask pixoto to delete it.
