Nothing new. The inconsistency at which the rules and "standards" are applied was one of the main reason I quit uploading (the ridiculous "standards" themselves being another reason which are stricter than anything even the most picky paying customer would set).

Maybe I misunderstand the queue here snice I normally only upload on "that other site", but isn't it allowed to upload 40 (or something) photos in a batch. maybe he had 30 photos already uploaded and then added the three photos that seem to have been uploaded early? That would place his photos early in the queue, no?

I guess you haven't been here for a while... Things have changed. Now we have a combination of the old queue system and FIFO. It is explained somewhere in this forum (do a seach for older topics).

I find it interesting that a topic which is of major interest to the site photographers was moved to the site section to avoid perusal by the very people who need to see it.
Well worth taking a look at but raises a few issues with why photo's are being screened out of upload date sequence.

Vasco, I will do you that favor if you do me one: Just search for recent posts by Jwenting. It's a good bet that 9 out of 10 of his recent replies show up in posts where something negative is the subject. Airlines going belly up etc. 90% of the time when he shows up in the Aviation Photography forum is when the screeners and/or the system is under attack. That just irritates me.

sure thing. Even if 9 out of 10 post in the last couple of months were about negativity, there might be a reason for it. Maybe we should get in depth look why he is bringing up some much negativ energy. Frustration? Double Standards?
Personally I would not accuse someone of these points if I don't have any hard facts. So Jwenting, would you care to show us some examples?

I don't like to see a topic goes personal but i this case i feel the need to support Wietse.
We have a new Dutch word..... "Jwentinging" not for no reason.
Doesn't matter what you are talking about, it's always wrong and or bad.
Planes are not boring, some people are because you know there answer even before the topic is started.
Now back to the topic.
I have no problem with the new screening rules what so ever.
When i think i have something hot i send an email and leave the decision up to them and in all other cases(which is the majority) i 'll sit and wait.
The truth lives in one’s mind, it doesn’t really exist

Not oblivious Wieste, (BTW, can't you take a joke?!), just slightly vexxed as to why one minute you're saying shooting aircraft is boring, (which in essence you did), which is in all honesty a slight negation on what this site is based on, then you slate this other guy for being negative too. Hey, I don't know either of you, but everyone has the right to say what they want, yeah? Perhaps if I take time to read some of the other bloke's input I'll probably have the same attitude as you. (And please, in reading this, take no offence as I haven't meant anything disrespectful here.......)

You know, we're getting a little off-topic here, but I can kinda see where Wietse is coming from. I see that he's frustrated about AMS, and it's understandable - when you see the same stuff (for the most part) day in and day out, you tend to get bored, no matter how great the stuff is. I know it personally. When I started working for United in DEN, I quickly got bored off of plain approach shots. So I shot on the ramp. Now I want to get to the runway and shoot some close action. It's all a part of growing as a photographer.
Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.
