I wonder why there are many accounts with no photos in them?

Is it just because Pixoto has some technical trouble at the moment or it has been like this for a long time?

    Hi Shooting, we always had accounts with no images in them. I hope this helps.

    I feel is question has to do with people with many followers who vote for them, but do not participate otherwise.

    It would be quite easy to stop people from voting if they don't have any photos uploaded. Also restrict voting if no new photos have been added for a certain time.

    The people who are serious about being on the site, would be entering photos, why else be here?
    • In general, just like on Facebook and Twitter and other social media sites, some people may open up Pixoto accounts to follow photographers they like and/or know and get updates about such on their Pixoto "feed", which is similar to a Facebook timeline.

      Also, they may like to vote and can't do that without having a Pixoto account.

      There is no Pixoto requirement that people who open up Pixoto accounts post their own photos. If you think there should be, then I suggest you make that as a separate "Suggestion" post.

    Photographers with no images have no right to vote on anyone's images because it shows a total disrespect for photographers in general and specifically for what Pixoto is all about: Submit images for dueling.

    Also, photographers should not be forced to vote on the type of images they don't take. I hate dog, bird and cat images and I share no affinity towards them so I have no clue why I should vote for fifi or fido.

    There should be a cap on all images uploaded to Pixoto to one per day.A photo of the same kind in the same category and sub category should be rejected while attempting submission.

    If your image hits 800. It gets retired.

    • Miast11 Jasenka's responses to Pete Bobb's suggestion about 10 days back re: duels and followers gives Jason's views on dueling and followers and Jasenka also provided a follow-up response when Pete gave a scenario where a tog might have 5000 followers--chances of followers ever getting a photo of that tog in duels is incredibly low.
    • I still think in order to earn the right to vote on other peoples photos you should have to also participate by submitting your own photos for voting. Just my opinion and a suggestion. Its up to Pixoto to make the change. Sometimes they come through like they did with the changes to community contests (they added a 3 contest limit for any moderator at one time) and like they did again today by banning reporting in the forum. Can't win them all though. So if they continue to allow it, so be it.

  • Ha Ha its not just the US in here we all got phones and if they take a pic with their mobile phone great they have just become a photographer and their opinion has just become more relevant, and we can a least judge their photo skill as they are so willing to do to the rest of us .

    And if their photos are terrible then we can dismiss their views on our photos .as not useful to us , we who want to improve look up to and listen when better photographers talk ,but not so much if they wont or can't put up their own work particularly those that plagiarize their cover photos and offer no photos of their own
