Wietse asked: When you select (or whatever you do to see it) a picture, do you have to screen it, or can you choose to not give your opinion on it and just go on to the next one?
We can accept it
When we go into the screening page, we are given a number of pictures to screen, typically between 10 and 50 - the number of pictures we see is of our choosing. We have no control over which pictures we get - that is decided by the system, based on the queue order.
Dealing with each of the pictures presented to us, we cannot ignore a picture totally. We have four options...
We can reject it
We can ask for a second opinion - that is, if we think a picture is borderline, we can pass it on to another screener for a second opinion - this is the border-case in the stats. If we ask for a second opinion, the next screener that comes along gets that picture to screen
We can pass it to Johan for him to screen - this is the difficult border-case in the stats. This is only done for pics that might be "artistic" but which would otherwise not make it to the database, or for pics like small parts of airplanes
When will they been screened then?
If they're in Johan's queue... when he's got some free time
There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots
