Why is my image paused after only 15 minutes voting, with image score 380 and 13:4 W/L?

I saw that you let many other images in duels without pausing and let them reach over 600 IS mark in very short time. I Am disapointed.

Hi! After seeing your post, couple of minutes ago, I looked at the photo and saw that image got an awkward row of loses.

From 13:4 it god slammed down to 18:21 Win / Lose. It looks impossible, except if someone or group of voters intentionally went to "kill" your image!

Such turn simply doesn't seem to be natural.

Like in every other system there are ways of cheating for those who really want to cheat.
I had "reversals of fortunes" happen to me as well. :-)
I am not sure how it goes but some people sure found them. It is not as bad as other places though.
I guess one way would be to see who's your closest competitors and remember the pictures you feel threatened by. When you vote you know what to vote even if it is against a broken stick. it is just a supposition.
Everything gets paused even the ones that now are over 600. :-)
More votes, more traffic. :-)
It gets really tiresome to "maintain" 50 pictures. :-)
Votes vary a lot depending on the time of the day, (what country are they voting from) and the day itself. worst are, in my opinion, Saturdays and Sundays. :-)
Take care

Um... the OP was made over a year ago John.

Logically (I've been watching Star Trek) then cheaters would not rely on manual means and a meat brain memory to cheat. They would run a script against the page from multiple routers and accounts that gave random average voting times to deceive the algorithms into thinking it was a human being, and then then it would be a simple matter of grabbing file names and marking them as targets. Then the human operators would vote normally in the group but their voting would be taken over by a script when a target photo arose, just enough to make sure it didn't rise as much as it should have but not enough to alert the Pixoto fraud detection software.
