I've reported this a few times using the help button on my page. Surely I am not the only one concerned about the exorbitant length of time it is taking to reach 100 duels. Daily awards were delayed, starting a couple of years ago, to give more time for duels since those awards were not at all relevant with the reduced number of votes given. Now, it is taking more than a week to get to 100 duels... even for the best images in the contests. The top image for both flowers and animals on October 1st (two of the biggest categories) still have only 64 duels each. Nature Up Close, a smaller category only has 57 duels for the top image. Voting has already started for October 8th!
I honestly feel this is a marketing problem since there are far fewer people using the site than in past years. But why has nothing been done to improve marketing? I never see any ads anywhere to promote the site. Without more efforts to market Pixoto, the only other solutions to this problem are to adjust the algorithm to allot more duels for daily contests, or limit the number of new community contests allowed (perhaps just allowing two per photographer).
