Rejectied? But Why?

Thu Jul 24, 2003 3:59 pm


I normally never complain about rejections, but this one I dont understand:

The reason was the following:

These photos have already been added to the database or you have
uploaded other photos that look very much like these. Please read more
on this issue in the Upload-FAQ.

Note: You could also get rejection message if there are photos very similar
to these that have passed the first screening and are waiting for the
second, final, screening. Also, generally if you submit a number shots of
an aircraft taken at the same time, only the best 1 or 2 will be selected
and rest may have been rejected as doubles. You can better control
which ones we accept by only uploading the 1 or 2 best shots from a
sequence of photographs of the same aircraft.

I have the following two photos allready added from this flight:

but hey:1st one is a take-off shot, the 2nd one is a inflight-shot, and the rejected one should have been the landing-shot  Smile/happy/getting dizzy I really dont see where this should be a baddouble or something like this, and i couldnt find a similiar photo on approach to rwy 28 .....

can anyone of the screener pls explain .........


btw: the rejected photo was rejeted before, becuase i forgot to add the caterogy: "windowview"

Get used to it, Robin. I got one pic rejected, saying that I had a similar already uploaded or in the queue. Well, the only other picture of the same aircraft was a side on shot, while the rejected one was a nose shot....

COuld also be, that the screener hit a wrong button? This happened to me as well about 2 years back (Yep, I don't forget anything  Smile/happy/getting dizzy).

My tip: make sure, every info given is correct, then make sure, the picture meats the standards. If everything is OK, then appeal.

Seems reasonable rejection to me... The third picture doesn't really add much that can't be seen in the other two - unless you're desperately into flaps, and I'm sure we have other pics of deployed flaps on A320s.

Remember, this is, not, and you've already got two pictures of that wing on the database - the third picture is the same wing again. As with all multiples, upload the best one or two, and keep the rest for yourself. More than two (max) and we pick the ones we think are best or if two are already on the database the new one goes - if you want to control which get in, be selective yourself.

There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots
