Screening Process Question

Recently I've noticed that my photos marked "currently being screened" in the upload queue viewer seem to display that status for a fairly long time- as much as 12 hours. I figure that there's no way the actual screening can take that long, and that the time discrepancy is the result of the image being considered by screeners between several time zones, or possibly my view of the queue as a photographer not updating at the same time as what is actually going on with regard to screening images. Would I be on the right track here? It's not really a huge concern as far as such things go, I'm just curious.

PHOTO SCREENER

Hi ,

An image can be in screening for a day or two waiting for screeners opinions, Its more the images with questionable motives which require quite a few opinions before being rejected/accepted.

Regarding a normal HQ image it can take up to few hours to screen if not more , Earlier in the day when I did some screening there were almost 200 photos in HQ queue which had been viewed by at least one screener and waiting another screener(s) opinion before being decided on, So it could take at least 2-4 screeners to screen those images as some of the new screeners in training focus on the HQ Queue while the more experienced screeners either do a few batches of HQ images or focus more on the normal queue. We try to keep at least 100-150 images in HQ queue so depends what is needed.

Time zones do play a factor so there probably will not be much screening done in next few hours as Its night time in USA/Canada and Early morning in European time zones where most of the screening team are from.

The data of images in the queue is pretty much up to date.

Cheers Mark

Has there been any thought into posting a note that says "X photo(s) currently at Head Screener" to denote whether it is in the standard queue or if it on to the "final round"?

You can see that information on the Queue Stats page, though I don't think that is what you are really asking - very few images are sent to the Headscreeners queue, maybe only 5-10 a week.

Perhaps you are confusing the Headscreeners queue with the HQ queue? The status of images in the HQ queue can also be seen on the above page. Such images will be denoted as 'currently in screening', or in emails as having 'passed first screening'. However, as Mark indicated, that does not necessarily mean those images are being screened at that exact moment; it's much more likely that one screener has seen them, and they are waiting for a second screener to give their opinion. That is the reason some images can appear as 'currently in screening' for 12 hours or more; it typically takes a few hours for a second screener to get to the image, but if they are unable to decide, then it may need to be left for a third, and so on. As Mark said, this is common with images that have an unusual aspect or something questionable about them that requires the opinion of multiple screeners.

Hope that clears things up a bit.
