To improve our screening process and the feedback you receive we have decided to start working with abbreviations in personal comments. This will allow us to send far more personal messages than before.
For you this means you will need to be aware of the meaning of the abbreviations. For now we have decided to start using 3 very common ones. Hopefully in the near future we can expand this to encompass many more personals, and all abbreviations should be in our upload guide.
For now though
CW - Clockwise rotation needed
CCW - CounterClockwise rotation needed

Hey, the screeners remembered their password!
Quoting Walter2222 (Reply 6): PS: A frequently asked question for "contrast"-rejection is "is there not enough contrast or is there too much contrast" (eg C+ or C- could help out ... and reduce the number of posts).
Yes! Excellent idea.

Exactly right. Good idea.
Perhaps even C++ (for lots more contrast needed) or C+ for a little bit more contrast, etc.

I've received plenty or rejections with and without personal messages; here, I'm just wondering whether the abbreviated messages are going to become common (and consistent) practice, or it was just a good but un-workable idea.

Agree with you there i prefer the human touch even to rejected messages
Guys, you missing my point. I much prefer the non-abbreviated messages myself. Unfortunately though, I rarely get them.
What I'm talking about is that abbreviated messages are better than no messages at all; it is abbreviated ones versus "no messages'. If a screener feels like typing out - great, I guess nobody could keep him from that.
But if the screener feels like he is pressed for time and ordinarily would write nothing at all, typing a widely understood abbreviation would only take a split second, but the photographer would still get his vital piece of information.
