"Bad Single"?

Mon Mar 08, 2004 9:44 am

So, today, I received a personal message from a screener in a rejection email.

Considering the amount of invective coming the screeners way from time to time, and a personal message generally an instance of a screener going out of his or her way to help how to fix a problem or to explain the rejection, I'd especially rather not complain about a rejection in such an instance, but this one is confusing to me.

I had this image photo:

rejected for

"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." etc... and:

A comment from the screener regarding this upload:
"Xxxxxxs-1.JPG : ID 463952"

Well, here's that one..accepted back in November...

Is this to be considered a "bad double"?

Anyway, I am prepared to let the rejected image go (ie: not appeal it or re-upload, because it has other problems...and I am not new to getting images rejected..) just thought it looked "ok" and people might want to take another look at that day...but I bring this up here, because I feel the Bad Double issue is becoming subjective to the point of being arbitrary. But perhaps I am off base here?

You're right, Tom, it does seem to be arbitrary and not very professional. But, it's nothing new (complaint wise), and I'm sure the screeners have got the point already. Despite the fact that it doesn't seem to be showing--otherwise your thread wouldn't be here. Not much more to say...

Still a great shot, regardless...but what are the other 'problems' you speak of? Other than it not being the sharpest, clearest photo... Big grin

Great work,
What the FUTT?
