Firstly, this is not a moan, just curiosity.
I recently uploaded a pic (the first I believe - the reg. wasn't in the database and neither was the airline) of a Plaza Air Services ATR-72, EC-KAD, which was promptly accepted. What I'm wondering is why it hasn't appeared in the news/what's new section on the front page? It may not be the world's most exciting colour scheme but it's a new reg. and a new airline, so surely it qualifies? As I say, it's no big deal for me but it would be nice to get a pic on the front page.

Not a screener but I was in the similar situation 2 or 3 times. At the time one of the screeners told me that pictures are only added to the news section if judged important enough. Until now I haven't found out what would qualify as "important enough" though. It's a rather subjective decision.

I wondered the same thing when I uploaded the first pics of Southwest's first 737-300 with winglets. I wasn't sure if it simply didn't qualify as newsworthy, or if I was supposed to communicate with the screeners at the time of upload/acceptance.

Just for future reference, what is the procedure for examples such as these? I thought my comment indicated that this was a new aircraft/reg, along with the fact that it was tagged as a priority upload? Or do I need to put it as a message to the screeners when I get to the final upload screen?
