A few months ago my acceptance ratio was at about 34% and now I've managed to pull it back up to 76%. How are you doing? Has your's increased or decreased a lot either way in the last few months?  Smile

It's been better. Only 80% at the moment. Just 'slacking' off I guess.

So you're saying that screening standards have declined?

Screening standards are not the only variable in determining whether a photo gets accepted.  Wink

As for me, not having uploaded in a few months, I wouldn't know.  Wink

A few months ago my acceptance ratio was 74% but now it has gone down to 40%! In the beginning of this year, the ratio was about 38% and before that it was steady in 50%.

There are 20 photos waiting in the Q to either push my ratio up or down.  Smile

Currently 56% only, should increase over the next weeks though. Not too much artsy stuff to upload lately...  

Has been higher months ago but I couldn't care less.

My ratio varies from 60 to 84 last 4 month. Most rejections were dirty, level, info, motive... I'm working on it!

I've been at 80% beginning of this year, then, I've gone down to 25%, after some bad series (11 uploaded, 11 rejections and stuff like that).

These days have been better and I'm now back to 70%  Wink

Was in the 70s at the start of the year, dropped to the 50s (ironically after I upgraded from an Olympus C-740 to a Canon 350D) but slowly regained ground and now stands at 80%. My main problem has been getting the sharpening right. Hopefully I'm better at it now.

WOOOW and some of us think we have it hard .
Not meaning anything bad towards you Eduard but makes me feel better knowing even screeners go through these sort of stuff.
Mine was also at 88% until a few rejections and an appeal got it down to 84% but I'm not complaining not sure how long it will stay there thou  Smile

Haven't uploaded anything for several weeks now because I'm scared to ruin my acceptance ratio.  scared   Wink

Officially, it's currently at 62% based on the last 50, with an all-time high of 86%.

However, I am 20 for the last 25 (80%)...  Wink

All shots were carefully selected and pre-screened and uploaded on 5 different days and I've got some 20-30 more photos waiting to be edited and uploaded so I need to be pushing a little bit before my next major photoshooting.
Anyway, it's not my fault the screeners work so slowly...  Wink  duck

Ahh I feel better now - I'm not the only one that gives some of my shots a few goes.

Based on your 50 most recently screened photos: Accepted: 24 Rejected: 26
Acceptance Ratio: 48%

Was at around 70% a few months back - had a bad run lately - But I'm now being really harsh on myself so only got 4 or 5 in the Q. Also doing my bit to help with the Q size.

I've not long started. 5 uploaded, 5 rejected. By my calculations, that's, lets see....0%!
