Improved ImageDuel Algorithm!

We’ve been burning the midnight oil here at Pixoto just released our first major overhaul to the ImageDuel voting system since our Beta launch.  We’ve been listening closely to your feedback and analyzing the data and we think this new version of ImageDuel is a very significant improvement.  Here’s a sampling of what’s new:

  • It’s much faster (actually – the whole site is faster)
  • Inaccurate pausing of great images should be vastly reduced
  • Images with higher ImageScores will get more votes than other images
  • Images now compete only against other images of similar quality (essentially they are in on a ladder system and compete with other images in their “rung”)
  • Established images will not be dragged down by duels with new images
  • New images now compete mostly with new images
  • Improved cheating prevention techniques

We also added EXIF data (e.g. camera, f-stop, aperture, etc) to the image detail page. This is available for all images that have EXIF attached to the file.

Please let us know what you think!
