wonderign about image category change

  • Question
  • Updated 6 years ago
i had some photos submited for a remote controled car that was racing off road on gravel and i had it under sports and fitness - other sports but it was moved to arttistic objects - toys, i thought as this was a nitro fuel remote car not a standard 30 dollar toy that seeing hwo it was being used in a sport event it would be sport and fitness not toy. seeing how it was changed and i must have uploaded to wrong categories i thoguht id ask for clarfication. i looked under the categorie disciptions i was sent and it says toys in artistic objects which an rc car can be but sports also says peopel or objects so if used for racinf and is a 500 dolalr nitro car i thoguth that was differant. i knwo alot of ppl might not particpate in the sport but i thought it was still a sport seeing hwo peopel got toghter and chnalgeged each other with races and events even off road challengs. is it because soem rc cars are basic and r toys that all rc cars r toys ? in which case wont cars all be transports not a sport even thoguht in sport racing they go fatser and race each other. sorry to ask but i was a little shocked to loss awards and have it chnaged when the rc cars i was taking photos off were being used in an event.

Working your remote controlled sports car is not a sporting activity. It is just like someone playing on a playstation, yes there is skill involved but it is not considered a sport. If this was allowed people would submit images of their playstation and xbox.

Motor sports is defined as a sport because it requires some form of human endurance/skill, moving you fingers on a remote does not.

Pixoto were right to move your images.

its not liek playing on an xbox or playstation it is completly differant one u ar einside playing a programed game ina virtual environment the other rc drivign u ar eoutside ona real surface havign to deal with the vehicles weight roll and nature forces such as gravity and friction whiel trying to maintain positin alongside other operators. the track itself wetaher conditions and skill of operator all coeminto effect when challenge other racers. the only differance between this and motor sport is that the perosn is sitting in the car instea dof outside it.there is internation leaguse that control the rules and regulations for rc driving events and they even havea world cahmpionship held every year. sayin rc cars is liek playign a playstatoon is liek sayin baseball is liek playing a wii cause u can get teh game u get a bat and u swing it only differanc eis its online not in real world. all sports have an elctronical counterpart they are popular an dpeopel enjoy playign the sport thats why ther eis a game version of them. these cars are nitro fueld and can do 100 kmh they require constant maintance and tuneing to keep race worhty. the suspension has to be chnaged along with tyrs on nealry every track. ther eis alot of skill involved in drivign these if u type rc drift racign u will see soem very skille doperators comeption on an international level it requires more conecenrtration and hand eye cordination then soem games woudl be same level as say darts. yet darts is a sport. all u do is flick wrist its nto physical exertion yet its comeptivive and has events and is a sport . wouldnt rc driving when used on a comeptive level against others when it has an intewrntaion rule and regulation body thta oversees it make it a sport.

Samual. For it to be considered a sport on Pixoto we need to see the person physically competing in the sport. I understand there isn't a great category for these images on Pixoto - I'm sorry about that - but probably the best one for now is Toys.

sweet man that was a great response it cleared up the category because yes u can not see the person even tho in categories it did say person or object so i assumed u did nto need ot se person at all but i think its menat to be person or object with person in shot still in which case i can see why i misunderstood. ty very much man that was agreat response and really helped me to understand the sports category alot more. if the operator was in the shot with the vehicle it might have been sports seeing how u coudl off sen the peopel doign the sport but seeing how it was just the car its toys for now no worries that was the best response as u were insightfull inforative and also not offensive. ty very much for that so ill need help then with the photo that is still in the sports category as it won an award in top 5 percent and wont let me change it myself also my award count is off as the ones thatw ere recategories by pixoto has removed the awards but the counter is still showing them as there. soemhting has gltched wiht the award counetr on my site since they recategoriesed. the ones i coudl put into right category seemed to work and reset the counter but the 4 that was done bu pixoto have not.

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: My award total and actual number don't match

I guess for me and a lot of others it's the RC aspect of the activity that would exclude it from inclusion in the Sports category. For me it has to have that (physical) hands on thing to be a sport.

Samual - sorry for the confusion. It is not that people have to be in the shot - it's that people need to be physically participating in the sport. In the case of rc cars/boats etc the person is not physically engaged in the sport. I hope this helps.
