Uh, this is my first post about screeners-in-training. If others are complaining about screeners-in-training, I really have no idea. Now that I check, I did make a comment about your explanation on another photo you rejected for "badsize", but this wasn't because you're in training (which I didn't even know at the time), it was because your explanation didn't make any sense then either and seemed to reference a rule that does not exist anywhere that I could find on this site.
So I suppose you're the one that rejected that photo? Regardless, there is an appeal process here and as the screener who rejected this is in training, it says right in the email "DO NOT HESITATE to use the appeal function linked to lower down". So it's really not your call on whether you think I should appeal or not - my decision is to appeal.
Just for your reference, here's a photo that's in the database:

And here's my photo:
Now, if you want to reject it for baddouble or whatever, that would at least make some amount of sense, although I'd still appeal because there are differences in my photo that are important (such as the patches on top of the fuselage and the fading paint). But badmotiv? Come on. The other photo's not badmotiv but mine is? This is my first experience with what some others have been saying about screener inconsistency.
But this is why we have the appeal process and I tried to use it, and my photos were apparently lost (they don't show up by file name in the rejected section either). So I'm asking what to do. I don't really care why you rejected it, I'm asking how to proceed with the appeal at this point, or whether I should just make some arbitrary change (like cropping from 3:2 to 2.8:2) and resubmit.
