Photos Vanishing! Help!

Fri Sep 26, 2003 6:39 pm

I had 603 pics in the database yesterday and one was accepted during the night (yay...one...), so If my math is still good, that makes 604, right ?
Well, it still says that I have 603 pics. Screners, what gives ?
I didn't receive any email stating that a pic had been deleted  Sad

No use asking us screeners... we can't delete photographs from the database.

Are you sure it wasn't rejected badlikelytobepluggedtodeath Big grin

Pictures can be deleted by a recently implemented background script. It's running in the background constantly.
The script deletes a picture autmatically when it detects that the photographer:
a.) pluggs his shots on every occasion. After five pluggings one shot gets deleted. Or
b.) constantly reuploads unchanged shots. After 5 reuploads one shot gets deleted.
if decisions a+b are true there wil be 5*5 shots deleted. Which makes 25. The shots which are going to be deleted are selected by a random number calculator. Most likely to be the ones with the highest numbers of hits.
Theres a subfunction implemented also.

If
photographerscountry==elbonia
then
numbersofshotstobedeleted++;
else
mailto:photographer "You have been lucky"

Of course Peter is serious. As you have noticed, I am not plugging anymore as I have been inflicted the ultimate punishment, a picture being removed from the database. This should serve a lesson to all those that are thinking about starting plugfests.
I have also been warned that memebers modifying the HTML code will receive the same sanction.
9A-CRO, it looks like you have been modifying the country in your profile, so expect severe sanctions.

I think that it's not a good thing that photos get removed. I think it is too harsh. Plugfests are not a good thing, but don't you think that the punishment is just too ridiculous?

Besides, how come it came without any warning at all? Doesn't seem good to me.
