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

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!!

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)

AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
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?
I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone

OMG, guys, see this!
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?!
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.

Pepef said: When I woke up yesterday there were 325 photos ahead of mine in the queue. Now 36 hours later, there are 248 photos ahead of mine. Badscreening
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?

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

There are a total of 5185 photos waiting to be processed on the upload page (29 waiting for Johan and 5156 waiting for the screeners).
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).
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

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 ?
