Do the screeners ever take into account the text of the comment when screening a photo? ex: determining the photographers motive

just wondering..

If there is something you need to tell us put it in the comment for screeners box

Cheers

The remark is always read, yes. We need to check for rudeness or controversial content, so it is always read.

Sometimes the remark helps to explain what the photographer was doing, sometimes photographers put excuses into the remark to try and make-up for a low-quality image. All of this is considered.

As Tim says, if you wish to say something directly to the screeners then the "Comment for Screeners" field is the place to put your message.

I think the "Comment for Screeners" field is the photographer's opportunity to 'sell' his or her photos to the Screeners. This might indeed mean pointing out a 'motive' for uploading ie a special aircraft type or a particular occasion when the photo was taken. It might also be because of having looked in the database and finding that there are already many photos of the aircraft in the database, in that case why not point out that the photo is a different angle or the aircraft has different markings?

If I know that my shot is borderline in quality then I will explain the reason I have persisted anyway. I have a photo of a DC-6B taken at Miami in 1990 in the queue at the moment which is definitely borderline including a fence in the way however it is in fact a very rare photo so I have used the comments to Screeners to say why I have given it a try.

At the end of the day the Screeners are human beings (despite some contradictory opinions posted here  eek  ) and I think it is a courtesy to recognise that by making a comment as well as to take the opportunity to try to 'sell' a shot to them  Wink

Additionally, this practise is often referred to as "brown-nosing" and could even be construed as "whoring." Big grin  duck
