This afternoon I was doing the A v B thing when I ran across this...

I have an exact 50/50% ambivalence toward these two pictures, I was completely unable to choose one or the other, and therefore I was not able to continue my A v B session.

We either need a "tiebreaker" pic as a "C" option, or maybe something like a "Neither", "Both", "Opt-Out", etc. option available. It's simply not fair to the "loser" of such a situation, sometimes there are no bad choices, and conversely, sometimes there are no "good" choices. :)

What can we do to make this situation better?

Here's another example. This time it was only the 3rd pair in the session! I had to refresh the homepage to continue.

The first time ever that Ryanair has been seen as equal to another airline!

Totally agree! Been there many times ...

And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Funny, I've got clear favourites in both cases shown.

AvB is designed to put shots against similarly-ranked shots - except when newly uploaded, in which case they run against progressively higher-ranked shots to get an approximate ranking. If it's hard to choose sometimes, the system is working as intended.

I've been thinking for a while about a small redesign in this area, but it needs some prep work to be completed first. I'll have a think about. whether a "skip" button would work. My gut feeling is "no, we really want a decision in those cases", but I'll think some more.

In the meantime, just pick one. It's really unlikely to do any damage. The "loser" will end up being compared against lower-ranked shots and start winning, vice-versa for the "winner". Before too many votes, it'll be within the margin of error anyway.

Right, that's how we get certain presidents elected to office.
