Who Will Upload Picture ID 250,000.

Thu Jun 27, 2002 8:52 am

Alright guys, Since I got picture ID 247299 and 247300 uploaded today, we are only 2700 uploads away from picture 250,000. Who will be the lucky person to capture this title. This will be an awesome milestone for Johan and A.net crew. Let's all monitor it and someone post it when we see picture ID 250000 on Airliners.net. Maybe Johan could post it on the frontpage!

Hi Bo.

I have been searching the forums the last day to see if you were at Calgary yesterday. I just had an e-mail from my cousin who lives in Calgary as well, she too was at the airport to see the 2 US 747's and others, and sent me a photo of them to prove it. Quite a few people there too. Glad you enjoyed it.

Ned.

At photo number 248799 now - 1201 to go. At the current rate (2234 according to the "last seven days" view on the front page), airliners.net will hit photograph number 250000 sometime this week.

Of course, as with the much talked about previous milestone of 200000, there's still a way to go until there's quarter of a million pictures on the database. Currently its 242152, which gives another 7848 to go - another three weeks or so for that one then! Big grin

AS of now, only 996 pics to go...

And there's 1906 in the queues, so it could all be down to fate already Big grin

My G8 picts are ready for those of you guys eager to see some G8 stuff.

I hope that maybe one of My photos may hit the 250000 barrrier..  Smile

But Whoever gets it, should get some sort of prestiege or reward from a.net..

Perhaps a free Tshirt saying "You are 250K," with the 250K photo on the front with the name of the photographer stiched on.

Well guys, Johan had a HUGE clearout of his queue last night, and the counter right now is up to photo number 249744... I suspect 250000 will come up later today or tomorrow.

All those towards the front of the queue better get uploading more pics then! Big grin If you've currently got none in the queue, with over 900 there already you've got no chance!!!

>>The large version of the photos in our database have been viewed a total of 100,674,905 distinct times <<

so that doesn't include the number of times people have viewed a picture at medium size?

Hey Jonathen, I think it includes all clicks on the jpeg,regardless of the size. It's only a guess though. Kevin

I had an idea when i was looking thru my pics.

Why not - for example - do like they have done on the 400th Embraer.
Put a little discreet logo on the 250k pic saying that this is the... 250k pic?!

Then use the same (but with diffrent numbers) logo for the 300k, 400k, 500k etc pics.

Maybe it's a bad idea, i dunno?!  Big grin Smile

I really like this one. I remember seeing pictures of this particular place in WINGS magazine for Canadian Aviation.
Really nice photo Stephen, if you are reading this.  Smile

By the way Kevin, My G8 photos are still a long way to go!! I got only 100 scanned, need to scan a few hundred more shots and edit all of them!! BAAH!! Hopefully by next week, I will have it all done with a few shots in which I can upload.  Smile

During the entire event, the amount of pictures I took during those 2-3 days was about: 450 photos.. No 500, nah bah Around the 450 photo mark.
I had hoped to shoot over 500 however I missed 70% of the departures including DUBYA! BAHH!
None the less I got a nice extra roll of K25 which I intend on using soo-oon. If only I can get ramp access...:D hmmm.

I will try and stay up as late as I can to finish scanning everything. So far I used up about 300 megs worth of raw .tiff scans on my hardrive. Looks like I may have to remove some games like Warcraft 3..
