Folks,

after having uploaded a picture today, the shot appeared at the bottom of my queue, number 10.....it has a thumbnail and everything. No problem.

But when I happened to click on ¨Medium¨below the picture I get the dreaded blue A-net default picture, while my other 9 pictures seem to give me the normal larger thumbnail when clicked!?

Do I need to re-upload?

Cheers,

NoTaxOnRotax

I had the same issue yesterday and today, but this happened after the photos were accepted into the database. The Medium image displays the default picture, but the Large version is OK. I reported it to the support folks yesterday, but no word so far on what's going on.

I'm getting a similar issue for a photo that I uploaded just now. The thumbnail size in the upload queue is the default image but medium and large are fine.

I just had one too, the thumbnail size picture in my upload quene is shown as a default image, instead of the normal small picture as my other uploads. Click on it opens the large size upload without problem, hope this is just a bug.

This happened to me too. There was also an accepted picture a day or two ago (not mine) whose medium size version seemed to have the same issue. I've stopped uploading until the problem is resolved. I really wish the crew can comment on this soon-ish.

The problem seems very sporadic and it has happened to very few images. It has been reported to the developers.
If it has happened to one of yours a reupload may fix the issue

The developers have been informed about this issue but in the meantime I pulled an image that was exhibiting the problem and added it to the database.
A re-upload then removed the problem so if you have any images that are showing as default, re-upload them here and hopefully they will get sorted out. http://www.airliners.net/reupload/

This can however sometimes take a few days

Yeah, just experienced this today.
Will the "default" photo cause any problems when it is due for screening? The LARGE version is viewable.
Should I pull the photo off altogether from the queue?

Ah - I see I have the same issue with some of my currently queued photos.

Out of interest, who views photos at medium size? Is it mainly on mobiles? I must say that in all my time here I have never chosen to click on the medium photo.

...And here's one for the statisticians.....if a photo is clicked, but all the viewer sees is the default A.net image, is the photo still credited with a view?

Well, now a "default image" made the top 5!! I feel it is kind of funny, I guess part of the reason that picture made top 5 is people are curious to see what is this "default image", so it got more clicks.

So does that mean the 'medium' image becomes the thumbnail? If so, that is more serious. But then how come the 'thumbnail' in the upload queue looks fine?

Quoting dendrobatid (Reply 6):

I have 18 in the queue, spread over a few days (29.3. to 1.4), and 7 appear to be affected by this. If similar proportions are reported by others this may be a more significant issue.

P.S. Well I have just tried to upload a couple of images, and they appear as the 'Default' image even in the queue now. There's a real glitch here.

Hey guys,

the developers are still working on the issue.

So far it looks as if mainly the medium size of the pictures is affected. We have no reports yet of the Large size being affected hence the screening of the pictures can continue.
Also views should be credited normally as only the display of the photo is affected but not any links connected to it.

I know this is a pain in the ass issue but we hope to solve it quickly and will let you know about the progress and the possible need to re-upload certain photos. As you may know though the re-upload function is rather quick and will retain all your views for the given photo(s).

For further information or requests you may of course also contact us at support ( support@airliners.net ) at any time.

Kind Regards,

Thierry

Thanks for the update Thierry.

I did a quick experiment earlier on, uploading a few photos. All of them had a problem - either at the point of upload the thumbnail itself appeared as the 'Default' A.net image, or the upload appeared to be okay, but then the medium image is just the default.

What concerned me more was to see this 'Default' thumbnail in the Top 5. Having a medium format image not appear is one thing to the photographer (i.e. their photo thumbnail can be seen in the database and therefore be 'of interest/attractive' to potential viewers, so they might open the image and the photograph will be credited with a view come what may etc), but if the actual thumbnail doesn't show in the database then many more may not bother to look at that (though one being in the Top 5 doesn't support that premise!).

I suppose what I am saying is that which size image is being affected by this glitch has different implications for the photographer. I don't want a few of my photos next week to be accepted with a thumbnail not showing, and not to be around to reupload (I am on holiday and away from the site). I would prefer the image not to be there at all until the issue is resolved. So I would like confirmation that if the thumbnail is appearing okay in the queue then this means - if accepted - the thumbnail will also appear okay in the database.

So what is the advice on that?

Paul

I agree with you, Paul, that a 'default' tumbnail has bigger implications than 'only' a default medium size.

On a side note, this bug is also affecting appeals, which are showing up either as the default image, or not at all. For the time being, if there is a rejection you wish to appeal, please wait until a fix has been implemented, or there is a chance your appealed image will be lost. The appeal queue currently is very backlogged with corrupted images, which means none will be processed until a fix is found.

Thank you for your patience, and please know that none are more frustrated about this than we are. Unfortunately, we do not have any more information we can pass along, and we are simply waiting on the developers to find a resolution.

Hi All,

The developers are currently running a script which should update the currently missing (default) images. Please allow some time for this to run and index. Unfortunately there is also a need for some new hardware on short notice which will continue to affect some who see the default when uploading. This is expected to be resolved next week.

We do apologise for the inconvenience caused by this and thank you for your patience while the developers continue their work.

Thanks and regards

Re-uploading is not an instantaneous process, the re-uploads are actually screened so it can take a day or two.
However I have had to do three and all were fixed, though I did not get the usual re-upload e-mail and I only found out by re-checking

I tried to upload this morning, and the problem actually seems worse. When I click on the large view after uploading, in the photographers corner, I get the default image on that view. So I assume the photo could not be screened. This whole issue has been going on for at least a week now. Seems like a.net is on the bottom of the priority list for the DM developers.

I just uploaded a photo this morning (8:15 AM US eastern time) and the thumbnail and all three sizes are showing the default image. I'm guessing it best to just wait for the script to run and that will fix them all? Or wait for further notice and re-upload?

Any upload that shows the default image, either for medium size or thumbnail, is currently Not being screened. We are hoping that whatever the developers are working on will remedy the problem for images already in the queue, but if not, it would be best to remove the ones showing default images as they will be rejected if and when they reach screening.

^ I asked this question in reply 14, but no direct answer, until now.... I've uploaded about 5 default images.

So the outcome, unless remedied by the developer, is simply a rejection? Isn't that a bit harsh? Or did you mean a deletion when they reach screening? If it is indeed a rejection, I suppose that will affect the acceptance percentage, yes? Imagine the reaction of the photographers who are uploading these default images, either for medium size or thumbnail, but does not follow the forum or this thread. I wonder what their reaction will be like.

The re-upload function is practical for small volumes of images, but if every image accepted in a day needed to be re-uploaded, it will simply be overwhelmed, thus it is not a viable option for the thousands of images potentially affected that are currently in the queue.

As above, there is little point in accepting uploads at the moment if this is going to be the case. Uploaders are wasting their time and efforts, and so is the screening team in trailing through photos simply to reject them for an uploading problem. While Micks comment suggest its ony effecting a small proportion of photos, my experience is I'm having difficultly trying to upload anything at the moment without the default image showing and how can we have confidant that there are no issues with those we are managing to upload?

Bear in mind that my comment was made about five days ago and that was the case then. Several of mine were affected though I was not aware until they were accepted, and re-uploads did sort them out.

Several people have asked about whether to upload or not and I have advised them to wait if they can. I have only uploaded one in the past week. That took a few attempts and was done simply to test the system and I do think it is wisest to wait. Disabling uploads was suggested (by me actually) but it was not easy to do apparently. We have no real idea of how many images are affected but the developers believe that they can be corrected. We do not have a way of deleting images and it may be that we do have to reject them but as this no longer affects upload rates, is this really an issue ?

I don't think you are being at all fair on Dana there. A hypothetical question was asked and the way he responded was simply to say that he could not answer hypothetical questions. I do not see how that shows any contempt, particularly from a Screener that gives more to this site than probably any other !

We are all disappointed and, having just taken on four new trainees it feels like one step forward and two back.

New hardware is needed and we will keep you updated when we are able

My experience today is that very few photographs that I have uploaded are making it through successfully to the queue.

Everyone is free to make their own decisions on what to do, depending on how patient and determined they are to get a particular image into the queue at the moment, but I would recommend saving some frustration by not uploading until the situation improves.

Probably best to go out and take some fresh images or work on those you have already taken so they are ready for when the upload system is fixed.

I'm off to do quite a bit of image deletion from my queue....

Best regards,

Jim

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 46):
The re-upload function is practical for small volumes of images, but if every image accepted in a day needed to be re-uploaded, it will simply be overwhelmed, thus it is not a viable option for the thousands of images potentially affected that are currently in the queue.

I was referring to the script that PanAm_DC10 mentioned, not the re-upload feature, for that specific part of my sentence. It wouldn't make a great deal of sense to re-upload something that isn't actually uploaded to the database yet.

Why not just come out and say, DO NOT UPLOAD AT THIS TIME, we will let you know when the upload problem is fixed. Surely not blaming the screening team for this problem, but I think it is up to someone on the site to come to this decision.

I'm quite astonished at the contempt shown to the people who make this site tick.

Me too Karl. The fact while screeners have no control over this yet Dana is doing his best to answer questions and getting flamed for it astonishes me. You'd think he would be shown a little less contempt.

As Dana has pointed out, we cannot screen default images for obvious reasons. If we merely put a "second opinion" on a default image that is in the queue, in short order any screener who pulls a batch to screen will have nothing but a page full of default images. This describes the need to start rejecting these images so we can actually get to images in the queue that can be screened.

Whether someone from the site in the right position comes to the decision to disable uploads or not or determines how this might even be accomplished, hopefully we can understand that uploading our own queues full of default images and leaving them there will possibly result in some sort of issue just by common sense. If you upload and get a default image, no sense leaving it in the queue.

As Mick said, once information is available, it will be passed along. In the meantime we will continue to handle the day to day as best we can. Thanks in advance for your patience as we wait the fix from the developers.

I'm not doing any flaming about the handling of the situation. There is an etiquette to language and communication but some of Dana's recent posts seem very abrupt; almost sarcastic. It certainly doesn't offend me but there are others who feel the tone is a little unnecessary. Whether this abruptness is inadvertant I don't know but judging by the messages I get from people to whom the responses have been directed the negativity hasn't gone unnoticed.

We do talk behind the scenes you know. Unfortunately most don't have the confidence to put what they feel or think into words here. If others felt my responses were inappropriate or liable to be taken the wrong way I would really appreciate being told. Indeed, on many occasions I have been told.

I will be the first to accept that Dana's responses are well-intended, if he were to say. But it is important to recognise that many here don't use English as a first language, and should therefore be extended more patience than the rest of us.

No one is 'dictating' anything to you. Advice was requested, and one suggestion was removing one's corrupted images from the queue. Nowhere was it stated that you had to do so.

Quoting dazbo5 (Reply 49):
If that is the case Dana, until the site problems have been corrected, why not disable uploads until the problem is resolved?

As Mick said, if we (the screeners) had that capability, we would have done it days ago. We have been told by the developers that it is not an option.

We simply must wait and hope that whatever is implemented tomorrow by the developers works. If not, when we reach the point in the queue where the majority of images are corrupted, things will start getting a lot worse.

Well, we know there at least a few that don't like being dictated to  
In all seriousness, only a small percentage of uploaders regularly visit the forum, so any directive would be missed by most. We also hold out the hope that a fix will be put in place tomorrow that will repair any corrupted images already in the queue, so the do not upload advice would only be for those that lack the confidence in a fix being put in place.

How directly do the screeners interact with the developers of the site? Dana and other screeners are often the public face of the site administration for the sake of the photographer community, anyway, but it sounds like the people who run it on the technical side, who would really have any answers to be had here, are separate to some degree.

In addition, an inability to "close" the upload queue sounds counterintuitive on the face of it from my layman's perspective. I'm dimly aware that this is an older website and has changed management before though, so I would be unsurprised if a lot of things work differently from other online photos sites and message boards.

From my understanding, the fact that this site was built up, added to, and kept running by various forms of coding from different sources, added at different times, is a big reason why we experience these problems from time to time, and why fixes are not as easy as they would seem.

Dana, the last couple of replies have been much more informative; had you outlined earlier why possible solutions wouldn't have worked and why I doubt anyone could have interpreted your comments as abrupt.

I don't take offence to anything said in these forums, by anyone - I'm simply saying that some of your comments could be (and at times are) construed as unhelpful and/or patronising by others.

As for the current issue, if it's not possible to solve it by any other means than to delete images from the queue, then so be it. No big deal. We'll just have to wait until the programmers overcome the problem.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately it is taking longer for a fix to be implemented than we had hoped. As we will be reaching the point in the queue where the corrupted images start to appear in only a few hours, the screening team has decided to immediately halt all screening until the time where a fix has been found, and put into place. Going hand-in-hand with that, we ask that you please stop uploading images until a fix has been announced. We still cannot confirm that images currently in the queue with corrupted thumbnails will be recoverable, so there is no point in adding to the problem. As mentioned above, we would like to have disabled the upload function, but that option is not available to us, so if you know anyone who is still uploading, but does not frequent the forum, please let them know it would be best to stop uploading until things are running normally again.

Obviously we are just as unhappy about this as you, so apologies would seem moot...

You may still see a few images being added over the next few hours (to clear out images already in screening).

Thanks for reading,

Dana

If they all look ok, they probably are so I suggest that you leave them.

Yoshio however had 13/15 affected and he has removed them (thank you Yoshio)

Many people are however still uploading and we fear that many of those uploaded are not going to have been successful uploads. A lot of uploaders do not visit this forum, indeed a lot do not have English as a language so that seems grossly unfair and our feelings have been passed on to that effect.

I had two in the queue recently and both had the thumbnail and small/large version available - however it was the medium-sized image that was affected and so I assumed the files were corrupt and removed them.

From what I understand, unless EVERY image connected to each upload is visible your files will have been corrupted.

^ Further to McG1967 comment,

I would check for ALL sizes of your photos. Click on all; small, medium and large size. If your photo miraculously appear on all three sizes, then leave it in the queue.

I had about ten in the queue which were appearing normal, now I've got none (left 3 photos there to retain the caption).

Some photos shows the thumbnail OK, the large and small OK, then the medium size as the default image. I deleted those ones.

The screeners have asked that we discontinue uploading but they have no way of stopping us. You can leave it or you can remove it, it's your choice. However, according to the screeners, the problem still exists.

Just my 2 Cents.

I have a few in the upload queue since 7 days or so. Everything was fine (neither thumbnail nor medium image missing) and they are still as fine as they used to be. So for my pictures nothing has changed.

Don't think I need to take them off the queue. That's what my normal sense tells me and there was never an post from the anet crew that asked pictures without issues to be removed..

Anyway if I look at the upload queue status perhaps only 20% or so were taken off the queue. It is still like ~800 pics a day. So that clearly shows that only a few photgraphers know about this situation..

This is the real problem. As new images are being uploaded, they are in turn corrupting images already in the queue. One of my own images uploaded three days ago (after multiple attempts to get an un-corrupted image through), now has the default image. It would be best to monitor what you currently have in the queue, and leave anything that for the time being looks ok - just be aware that images that were ok in the queue before are now being corrupted.

Today's update:

Uploads should now be ok; a permanent fix has not yet been implemented, but there should no longer be any images being corrupted upon upload. If you are still seeing newly uploaded images being corrupted, please let us know.

Unfortunately, it seems that this temporary fix has caused all rejected images to be erased (at least temporarily), so screening will not resume as normal until this new problem is remedied, as it would not allow photographers the chance to appeal their rejections. Possibly related, all images that were in the appeal queue have been permanently lost.

You may see small batches of images being added over the next little while as we test out the system to make sure there are no more bugs.

Dana - whilst all this has been going on I have had a further two images rejected, where I have issues with the decision making. Previously I had a rejection which I appealed (as you know) and I now understand from what you say that images has been permanently lost. What about these more recent two? I see one showing normally in the rejection section, but the other is just a default image. So apparently not all rejections have been 'lost'. Is there any likelihood of the 'disappeared' image being restored for subsequent appeal? Will I at least be able to appeal the image I can see in my rejection section eventually?

Hi everyone,

It seems things are slowly returning to normal; uploads should be possible now without any corruption, and we have recovered most of the images from the screening log. As such, screening has also (slowly) started again, and we will get to work trying to get the queue back down again.

You may upload freely now, but please keep an eye on your images in the queue over the next few days just to make sure everything is as it should be. If you see any problems, please let us know here.

Indeed, though I can't say I've kept a smile on the whole time through this episode. It has been frustrating to say the least.

In any case, this will hopefully be one of the last updates: most issues have now been resolved. There remains only a small problem with how thumbnails are being displayed, but this is a minor issue compared to what we've had to deal with over the past few days. Screening should be running normally shortly, and uploads can also proceed as normal.

Again, should any other issues pop up, please let us know.

Having been away for the last week, I am glad to see things returning to something like normality on the site - though I too see some very soft thumbnails with acceptances.

Last weekend I took the advice and removed my uploads from the queue that had corrupted medium format images. I have now uploaded those again, and all seems okay, apart from the fact that now when I check I see the medium and small format images as horribly oversharpened. Generally I never looked at these sizes before, but is this evidence of something still being amiss?

The 'large' images look okay from my initial examination but - given the seriously tight criteria we uploaders have to satisfy - we need to be confident that the uploading process isn't adding any kind of compression/altering our edits in any way.

Cheers.

Having looked at a few of mine in the queue, I must agree. I wouldn't normally look at the small or medium photos, only the large but after you mentioned it, I'm seeing the same. The large version looks fine, but the small and medium are looking jaggy / oversharp.

The soft thumbnails/copyright bar are a result of corrupted images that were in the queue being repaired. Images uploaded after the fix should not have this problem, and in any case it is a minor issue that can be resolved by re-uploading the image if the soft thumbnail bothers you.

Also, since we have not heard anything from the developers on this matter in a long time, we can assume that the images that were corrupted while in the appeal queue will not be recovered. If you wish to submit these images again, please contact us first, with the registration and a note explaining the situation. Do not simply re-submit the image(s) without change as you will be subject to a warning/ban for re-uploading, which has already happened.

I have a number of photos in the queue, submitted last week. All now, bar one, are not showing a small sized image. But no 'default image' this time, just a message coming up saying 'Internal Server Error'. Yesterday they were all fine, so this current glitch is retrospectively affecting previously fine uploads - it's not just uploads submitted after a certain time, which seemed to be the problem before.

As someone affected by last month's 'debacle', that already seems to be an appropriate word to describe the current state of affairs.

I hope this can be resolved very quickly by the technical people. Please can there be every attempt made to ensure that one resolution is not that photos in the queue, blighted by this problem, have to be rejected.

Paul

P.S. Edit - now the one remaining photo in my queue that was displaying correctly when I initially wrote this post has also disappeared.

Hi All,

We've done all we can to report these technical issues to the developer team and they've scheduled time to investigate and resolve these issues, we await their feedback. By limiting screening we're ensuring that these technical issues do not get any worse. Please keep in mind that the time zones are working against us here and the crew are doing and have done the best they can in the circumstances.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused the Community and will post an update just as soon as we have developer feedback to pass on.

Thanks and regards

Paul

There's also some recently accepted photos gone missing. A couple of mine that were accepted last week have disappeared from the search / database. The number of my photos in Photographers corner is 2 different than are shown as present n the database.

Thanks,

Hi All,

To update, the developers have fixed the technical issues and we are again screening though cautiously to start. We'll continue to monitor it and we hope that your upload images are now displaying, if not, please allow a little time for the fix to work through.

Hmm, I'm still getting a small handful of default images in the medium size- for example, photo id 2245615, uploaded March 29.
