I think Pixoto should change the way we vote. I am tired of seeing judges enter their own contests and either WIN or at least place! In fact the most recent photo contest I have an issue with is one where the judge gave HERSELF the Judge's Award!!! This website has become a self-promotion way to get points and earn recognition instead of being an actual contest! I don't think the moderators should ever be allowed to enter their own contests! I also think the moderator should limit the number of similar images to no more than 3. Another recent contest concluded and there were so many similar images, it became boring to look at them! Pixoto needs to revamp its website to become more professional. Each contest should not allow more than 3 images from the same photographer. The moderator should not be allowed to enter their own images. The moderator should not be allowed to finish in the top 3 places (where they earn points) in their own contests. Finally, the moderator should not be allowed to give herself her own Judge's Award!!! :-(
If a person no longer wants to be involved in your website, then he/she should be able to upload/retrieve our own images from your website so we can enter them in other places. I had my external hard drive crash with many of the images I entered here and I can't retrieve them onto my One Drive. If I am misunderstanding how to accomplish this task, please direct me to where I can find the solution. If it is the website that does not allow me to get my own images back, especially after a such an emotional loss, then your website should allow for the retrieval, even if additional steps for verification of ownership of images is required.
