Just had a pic of CS-TLS,a Aerocondor S360 rejected for category.I ticked the airliner or other box as this is the category that the other 2 examples of this aircraft on the database were listed under and I always thought this was best.It turns out that I should have ticked Cargo,which is fair enough but on further investigation I find that a pic of another S360 had been accepted the day before as airliner or other and it should also have been Cargo.On looking even further I have found that a large number of S360's are listed in the wrong category and indeed some of the same aircraft appear in both the passenger aircraft section and also the Cargo section.I noticed at least 12 during a quick 5 minute look last night.
Yes I am a bit miffed that mine was rejected but it has also highlighted a discrepancy in the screening process.Anyone else uploading pics of S360's should be careful as to what category it comes under,if the windows are blanked out on the aircraft,eg like the Roblex Aviation one's,it should come under cargo but then again the numerous BAC Express S360 aircraft do not have their windows blanked out yet are used for cargo purposes.
I have reuploaded my shot with Cargo selected,I just hope that the next screener doesn't reject it because its not the same category as the other 2 examples on the database.
Edit: Expect no vindication because the error in the database will probably be mysteriously fixed before any representative admits that the orignal problem existed. Also expect some people to jump all over you no matter what, especially if you don't provide a photo example.

AIRLINERS.NET CREW DATABASE EDITOR
Quoting Ptrjong (Reply 4): There are huge numbers of pics with wrong information in the database.
Amen, and us editors are chipping away at them all the time. I cleaned up the Lockheed Vegas, Orions, Electras (10 and 12) and Hudsons this week, A-1 Skyraiders yesterday and the OV-10 Broncos today. Next up are the Mirage 2000s.
