For what my humble opinion is worth I don't think that shot has any place here. It is a slap in the face to anyone who ever had an "arty" shot rejected where they attempted to show an AIRLINER (since this is airliners.net after all) in an unusual way.

I think it's time someone here took a reality check!

Come on [screener] guys! This is just asking for trouble!!!

Hi all

For what it's worth I mistakenly added that image to the database.

Hey, mistakes happen and it is in the process of being removed. Just goes to show that I am not perfect after all.

Cheers

Dimitry loves them all, regardless!  Big grin Big grin

As for the image, indeed an interesting sky.......screeners are humans afterall.....that is good to know.

Gary, Peter.......happens to all of us. Apart from this you are doing a good job.

Hi all

Maybe for the future, if anyone sees an image on the site that they feel should not be there, please send the screeners a message rather then post on the forum.

Doing it this way will ensure that the 'offending' image is removed more quickly.

Both Peter and I have been heavily fined by Johan........no uploads allowed for two weeks  Smile

Guys,

You are rapidly reaching the point where the screeners refuse point blank to respond to topics like this in the forum. This would be a great shame as I feel we can make a contribution in the right circumstances. If you want to go to a situation where you've no idea about the screening, or why things are done like they are, then fine - keep up the moaning - and what will happen is that you get absolutely no response as to why pics like this were added. It will become even more difficult for you to ascertain why shots were added, or not, and to make your own judgements about the likelihood of your own pics being accepted.

If on the other hand you want the process to remain reasonably transparent and open, stop posting topics like this. These topics usually end up achieving absolutely nothing - zero. And before anyone says, the answer is that the airliners.net team were aware of and were dealing with this picture well before the topic was raised here, so please don't look at these sorts of topic as a means of defending the faith, as it were.

OK, I understand.
I thought maybe sending an email at all 10+ screeners was more annoying, but since it is your preferred way, I have no problem with it.

Sorry...too much read meat lately...or something like that.  Wink/being sarcastic

Perhaps this thread should now be deleted...

Keep up the good work!

Did the photographer get an email?

I know from personal experience that having your photo removed without getting an email, is very annoying.

It's not very pleasant to hear from a friend that your picture is removed...

Anyway, stop the blaming on the screeners. I don't know anymore who gave us the figures some time ago in another 'why accepted' thread, but the percentage of wrong screenings on this site is VERY low. So please, to the whiners, keep you comments for yourself.

Regards,
Frederic

I think noone was whining in here (at least not me), one photo was singled out, and the screeners told us the preferred way to do this is to send an email to them directly instead of using the forum.
There is no doubt that probably close to 99% of the screenings are OK.

Hi all!
Frederic the thread you mentioned was (I think) my personal thread of honour. Wanna see the figures, click the link:
http://www.airliners.net/discussions/aviation_photography/read.main/57856/6/

About whining. i think this thread was or is one of the more civilized we had in the past.

I think the photo should have stayed, it was a screener mistake but who cares, it made it and its a real shame for the photographer to have it deleted just after having it accepted...

just my 0.02cents. I saw this photo too but decided against posting a topic for fear of people disagreeing or whatever...  Sad

EGGD, I disagree. What was the Motive for the upload in the first place. To waste our time or his ?
