Wassamatta. Afraid that someone with an obvious defect is better than yours
Obviously an error, it all works itself out in the end. We'll ensure that the next Instant Priority add has a wrong box ticked. And yes I have done that before Didn't see anyone complain then. well except the person who then didn't get his photo online

Oh no! Disaster! There's a photo with a border in the database.
The world is going to stop rotating! People are going to fall off the side of the planet! No one will be able to take pictures of airplanes again! airliners.net as we know it is going to implode into its own contradictory standards!

Firstly, I'm pleased Jurgen has had his pictures added to the database and I wish him well with his next uploads.
Now, assuming for just one moment that pictures with borders are not generally accepted, what percentage of errors should the screeners be allowed to make in a month??? Is 10% errors acceptable, is 1% reasonable???
In the last 30 days, 34925 photo screenings have taken place. 10% errors would mean 3492 pictures on the database that shouldn't have been. 1% errors would mean 349 pictures on the database that shouldn't have been. Three photographs represents 0.01% errors, IF indeed the three pictures referred to here do represent errors.
I suggest people here STFU unless they think they can do better.

I'm not to sure about the first two. I don't know how rare they are in the database (d/b isn't working for me), but the photographer said himself that there are alot of them about, and tbh I think they are a little soft and i've seen better rejected.
Doesn't really make sense, we all make mistakes but sometimes i wonder how?

Ok, ok, sorry guys for adding those pics! It was my fault. Trying to cope with the queue and going through hundreds of pics, as somebody said, errors may happen.
I don't know how it comes that I didn't see the borders on the thumbnail or on the big image, but...it just happened.
Speaking about this big inconsistency thing: As long we are doing this for fun, taking time from our spare hours and going through up to 8000 pics a week, I think at least people should concentrate on moaning on there own pics rejected and avoid claiming on shots from others being in the database. As long as we are about 14 screeners and human beings, I think that there are and will be some different points of view even if we try to be as consistent as possible, errors may happen.
Again, I want to apologise to all of those who might be offended for adding those badborder pics.

Seems to me that petty sniping detracts from the professionalism of the site. I"m asking the moderators to delete the whole thread. Threads such as this should not only be deleted, but the posters should be as well.
This forum is to DISCUSS photographs, not to bag out the screeners. Additionally, it's highly OFFENSIVE to the photographer who's pictures have been targetted.
It seems to me that these type of threads are childish and silly and simply have no place here.

I won't comment on the original subject of this thread other than: Well done Jurgen!
Now that thats been said..

Well, considering my friend just had a photo rejected for having a white border around it WHEN IT DIDN'T, I'd say this type of acceptance isn't a step in the right direction.
It is good to know however, that the standards are being lowered from the next to impossible to attain level they were at.
And it is again B-OTCH who can't stop complaining
You really can't see that a picture of another one is accepted, isn't it B-OTCH?
You still remember the AZ topic that you started? Now you are again pissing off the screeners...
Two sorts of people are looking through the accepted pictures everyday, 99% is like me and other aviation fans who like the pictures here, and who want to see the new shots, and than there is 1% left of people like you, who are browsing through the newly accepted pictures, not to admire them, but to complaint about the shots that should not have been added, to start topics about those shots,...
Get a life dude, don't forget that aviation is still a hobby...
@Peter: Errors can only happen where work is done
