I just got this weird message this morning:
"Due to repeated violations of our photo upload rules and guidelines, you have been banned from uploading photos to Airliners.net for 2 weeks. Following this ban, all photos you had in the upload queue have been removed
Here follows a personal message from the screeners regarding this ban:
The Airliners.net Photo Screening Crew
Now I cannot remember of cloning pictures, all I do is removing the dustspots.
I think they should send a link to te picture they think it was manipulated.
Also they are saying "Due to repeated violations". They should send a warning first and then proceed with the ban.
All my 22 pictures from the queue were removed so I wouldn't know now wich ones were in the que as I put all the uploaded ones in the same folder.
I don't think I will bother uploading anymore pictures because I think this is not fare at all.

I can see both sides here. The email says "Due to repeated violations".
If someone has violated the rules (regardless of which rule it is), they should be given a warning on the first violation, told that this is against the rules and not to do it again. Then if they do it again ban them.
I also can't see the point in not telling the guy exactly what the issue is, and with which picture. It's not like the screeners never make a mistake.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana!
Oh yeah now I remeber the reason why the warning was intorduced, because of this Shoot First, Ask Questions later attitude!
I also agree with Steve, there should have been a warning at least unless it was blatent cloning. Alex I think you need to clarify a few things here. Are you sure that you haven't received any warning and have you tried to contact the screeners themselves. Like I said in my previous thread, you should have tried to resolve this through the e-mails first.
Unfortunately I have to agree with you Robin. Alex is a very good friend of mine and we have had some really good times at DUB. I have a lot of time for him and a lot of respect too. It hurts me to see this, very sad indeed, but its happened and we must move on. I hope you are ok Alex but like I said a few times......
Quoting Fergulmcc (Reply 7): you should have tried to resolve this through the e-mails first.
