Frustration Is: "lost" Photos In The Q

Wed Feb 06, 2002 3:27 am

A few months ago, I had 60 photos in the que. Now, before anyone says it, I only up load about 10-15 a month. I never got a conformation email once they were processed, but 30 were taken. The other half were "lost". I posted about it on here, and the best I got was "it happens sometimes, just reupload them." Ok, I thought, no problem. So I did.

I sent those missing 30 in about a month and a half ago. This morning, I looked on the site and noticed 6 were up. I look in the photo stats page, and see that I now have zero in the que. Again, I never got a comformation email. 24 photos "lost".

This is getting really frustrating, and I have a few questions for the powers that be.

1. Is this amount of "lost" photos happening to anyone else?

2. I can understand a few getting lost, but how does half or more of my photos vanish?

3. Why no emails?

4. Ill gladly reupload them, but can they be judged more quickly, so I dont have to wait a quarter of a year, concidering that its not my fault they are gone?

Thanks for your help,
Brian

Sounds like your photos were not lost but rejected and the emails don't reach you.
Doublecheck the email address for typos, and make sure it is a real one that can accept mail (so not a Hotmail spamcatcher box that's overflowing and at it's limit of what it can contain).

Nope, its my personal email addy which has always worked fine.

I really dont think thats the case, I usually only have about 1 in 10 rejected.

Hi!
I had some losses in the past but this problem seems to be cleared out by Johan right now (well at least for me)
About the E-Mail. Stupid question but are you sure thet you have the right one typed into the field.
One other thing comes to my mind when speaking about lost pictures. What filenames are you using? may be somone other uploaded a picture with the same filename. For example n165ua.jpg wouldnt be a good filename, try to make them unique something like brian_s_n165ua_001.jpg this could help you avoid the problem of others "overlaoding" your files.
Have you tried to open http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/YOURFILENAME
No. Maybe you should try it to see if another picture opens up which is not yours. Or on the other hand try to open
http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=YOURFILENAME
and look if something shows up.

Im positive on the correct email. Its the only one I've ever used. Besides I get the emails from the screeners just fine.

The file names could be contributing, but I have some very unique fines names that were lost.

I dunno, It boggles my mind...

It could also be caused by the load on the server. I got a e-mail this week that a picture couldnt be added because of a wrong file name format, but in fact it was added. I learned from Johan afterwards that it was caused by the load on the server during upload time. Maybe e-mails also get lost when pictures are added to the database during peak times Who knows.

Yes I have had a few go missing, just have to wait till they are uploaded and find out which ones  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Also one rejected for a bad file name  Smile/happy/getting dizzy worked fine when i uploaded the second time.

It happens to me from time to time, that's why I don't upload so many. A few of my SXM shots got lost, but I didn't bother uploading again.
