Anyone notice any difference in the queue with the new upload limits in place? I don't have any in at the moment, but was curious what everyone thinks of it so far. Any comments from the screeners?

bored and "on the road..."

Well jeff, I gotta say, being behind 500+ photogs and 3000+ pictures, with only 4 myself, is not pleasent.

By the way, I took your advice and got closer to the tower yesterday, however all my photos are likely to be rejected for BadWeather. Seriously the weather yesterday sucked.

3000 pictures in there now? That is not as bad as it used to be...

So, I might be stuck in beautiful BOI another day due to snow?

Expecting a 6-12" in Denver Metro, 1-3 feet in the foothills. Better start getting used to BOI, you might be there awhile.

I hope the limit is working out well. Seems like a good idea all around.

Although relatively high, the que seems to have stabilized this week and thats a good sign.

I appreciate this upload limit very much !! Difference in the queue - I don't know, maybe in the last days are not that much photos added as in the weeks before.

Next step should be FIFO (First in first out) and a.net would not only be the best aviation photo database, but also have the best queue procedure honor the efforts of ALL its photographer.

I'm still a bit courious, how its possible that very normal Cessna photos or other really NOT new stuff can make it into the database in just a few hours (also taken from 2-3 different angles). This is in my opinion really something for FIFO, or are there any rules that photos added the same day until 18:00 are screened/uploaded until 24:00 ??

Thanks to the a.net crew for all there effort

Guys

It is working well so far but will take a little time for things to settle down.

Some screeners on holiday and possibly more so with the Summer holidays just around the corner. No holidays for me planned at this moment in time so your favourite big rejecting screener will be here night and day.

Personally, I've been a little quiet screening lately.......but bottle of wine cooling for tonight's batch!!

A few other

Cheers

I think if the limit make some people to stop and think for a while, screener's job will be more comfortable and Airliners.net will have even more valuable material to display.
For me personally the limit is not a problem, because I still shoot prints and slides, and never uploaded more than 10 in the batch (usually one or two)  Big thumbs up

I like the new limit set, but the queue still seems huge. Still seeing higher than 30 numbers on the search page though.

I noticed that the queue is still relatively high, but then again it is an upward trend and it looks like the days of low numbers are gone forever.
I'm in no rush at all to see my pics included in the db, but I noticed that the screening lately has been rather slow, especially the last 2-3 days, but Gary/Granite seems to have explained the reasons for that.

Jeez, what if all 19 screeners suddenly went on vacation at the same time, lets say to the annual photo screeners convention on Orlando? Big grin

OMG, guys, see this!  Big grin

There are a total of 4987 photos waiting to be processed on the upload page (29 waiting for Johan and 4958 waiting for the screeners).

...

4367 photos and 799 photographers are currently before you in the queue...


Understandable, there should be still some photos in the queue from the time before the upload limit... But hey, 799 photographers?! Big grin

If every photographer uploads 15 pictures in average (don't ask me, that's just a guess) and by the summer there will be 1000 happy spotters with their new DSLRs, that means still quite a bunch of pictures!

I really haven't paid attention, has the amount of photographers always been something like this?

I think the limit has to improve matters considerably - and now that the concept has been adopted, I would imagine it would be a simple matter to raise or lower it according to load and availability of screeners - perhaps it should be seasonally adjusted.  Smile

Hi all

As it currently stands (correct me if I am wrong) for people wanting uploads to Airliners and also MyAviation, we screen all images.

I am hoping that the link to Myaviation from the main Airliners upload page will be un-linked.

Uploads to Airliners.net - Ue the Airliners.net upload page.
Uploads to MyAviation.net - Use the MyAviation upload page.

Please separate your images and the queue will come down.

Just the other day I rejected a REALLY crap image from the Airliners.net queue, only for it to appear on MyAviation very soon after.

Cheers

Gary

And if you look at the search page, you'll see 943 photos added to the database in a not too dissimilar timeframe, so not Badscreening. It could be, for example, that your images are iffy and are being bounced around between the screeners looking for second opinions and thats slowing things down for you? Big grin

i am pretty happy , that there finally is a uploadlimit .... , I think a lot of us , usually have been in this range anyway ... , but there are some guys out there who just dont know anything and try to uplaod 100+ _____ pics ..... I do remember , when I started to upload to A.net, that I did similiar things ....

anyway, what Pepef mentioned: I now have 1 pic in the queue, as soon as it comes to get screened I start to upload more pics ..... , and I also realizing this, when I am getting close to get screened, that suddenly the queue infront of me rapidly starts to grow .......

anyway, I think A.net is on a good way to improove , and solve certain probs .... , WE ALL KNOW, THAT HERE ARE THE BEST PICS ANYWAY  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Of those, 3 are yours.

4730 photos and 869 photographers are currently before you in the queue (the number of photos may increase, not the number of photographers).



 Smile Well, i don't recognize any big difference yet. But we will see in several days...

Personally, the upload limit does not matter to me because i never upload more than 10 images in one batch...
However, it is good to know that 200+ uploads of the same photographer won't slow down the Q again  Smile

For somebody, who has just returned from a spotting trip with obviously more than 30 images, uploading all of them (not literarly, but the ones which are a.net suitable) could take some time. And that person will have to wait for some time and nervously keep checking the queue, until the next ones are uploaded.

It is a relief for screeners, yes. But for some photographers it isn't.

That gives me thoughts on my trip in May. I assume I'll have more than 30 images to upload.

More screeners? Hmmm....
How about the not-so-long-ago screeners-in-training ? How are they doing?



How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Hi all

Screeners in training are no more...........full fledged screeners now and hoping to get the info updated as well as the 'About Us' page.

Morale?..........morale has always been good amongst the screeners........I know they all hate me but that's another story  Wink/being sarcastic
