There are some on most days and yes I have made the wrong decision on the odd occasion. That is what the appeal function is for, we are only human after all. On the other hand I too have had some successful appeals so it works well for everybody.

I've had quite a few successful appeals. You can't just appeal any decision because you're annoyed at the rejection. In most cases you'll need to do a good job of explaining why the rejection should be overturned. I'm not a screener, but I can tell you that appealing without a worthwhile comment will get you nowhere.

Thanks Peter. The shot I appealed and had accepted with warnings was originally a level rejection. I guess it was accepted upon appeal because it was only "a little" unlevel. Either way, thanks for clearing that up.

Quoting D L X (Thread starter): I know this sounds bitter, but I'm curious: how many appeals are actually successful?
I've had a handful of successful appeals where a "category" rejection was challenged. On issues such as as "quality" or "motive" I've had none. I really don't appeal these types of rejections anymore, I'd rather find another shot in the series of the a/c in question and try a fresh upload.
Quoting WakeTurbulence (Reply 6): I have been successful in some appeals. My first photo on Anet was accepted on appeal. Quick question: Once I had an appeal accepted "with warnings" and I have no idea what that means. Thoughts?
Matt...never experienced this...but on occasion the acceptance e-mail on a given photo will have the "without warnings" language; and sometimes not...kinda' strange.
