Wrong reclasification

  • Question
  • Updated 7 years ago
I posted a pic of a model sailing boat in Artistic Objects - Other. The pic is of a model boat about 3 foot or 90cm long. I guess it was a pretty good likeness to the real thing because it has now been recategorized in Transportation - Boats. I guess the report team thought it was crewed by a bunch of ghosts because there is nobody on the deck, nobody at the helm. I would like the person who recategorized it to have a good look at the pic and have a good look at any future pics that they are thinking about shifting from a totally appropriate category

Jason can you have a word with John please

Dear Mark Zouroudis,

The image below has been reported as being in the wrong category. We took a look and agree so we have taken the liberty of recategorizing it for you.

You can find descriptions of all of our categories at http://blog.pixoto.com/category-descr...

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

The description saying (Toys) ...
Artistic Objects – Here’s where you put all of those artistic shots of man made objects of all types from coffee mugs to violins. Natural objects modified from their natural form can also be placed here. The still life subcategory can be used when there are two or more objects in an unnatural setting as the subject. Subcategories: Musical Instruments, Glass, Antiques, Clothing & Accessories, Jewelery, Toys, Still Life, Other Objects ...

Somebody should try to seal with this "transportation" ... with that I mean (member of report team ... too much mistakes)!

It's amazing. I have this thing about the Products and Objects Category (I don't post much in it) but I have done a lot of reporting there, I believe I know my categories pretty well and to date only a handfull of the 200 or so I have reported in that category have been moved. Someone reports my pic (They obviously didn't have a good look before reporting) and the report team (They obviously didn't have a good look before moving it) act on it right away.

WHAT"S GOING ON PIXOTO??????????

Mark  - I'm really sorry about this.  Our report team clearly got this wrong.  I have asked them all to be more careful about this issue.

As far as the other reports that you made that didn't get acted on can you give me an example of an image that wasn't moved so that I can look into what happened.  We are not backlogged on reports now - so everything should be handled.

I'll just resubmit the model sailboat tomorrow after midnight GMT and hope that it doesn't get reported again

Mark - I'm really sorry about this but we don't re-categorize images that have been submitted more than 6 months ago. I realize that we are not clear in communicating this and within a few days we will be blocking reports on these images from being made. I'm sorry for the time you must have wasted on this.

As for the image of pencils - it is OK in the category it is in.

So six months ago till now I will report and all the wrongly categorized pics older than 6 months will go on to win yearly awards that they where not ineligible for and people that did the right thing will miss out. BTW I did report most of them mid august so there would have been some that still would have come under the > 6 months rule.

Sorry - missed some of those. Here's a response:

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - report team messed up.

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - we do not have a record of a report on this image

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - these are OK in the category

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - report team messed up
