Changing Info On Shots In The Queue

Tue Apr 05, 2005 8:50 pm

Quoting Skymonster on a capability to modify info on images still in the queue, from June 2004:

"Before this can be allowed, a secured means of allowing each photographer to access their own images and only their images has to be implemented. To do this, it'll be necessary to have a process for photographers to register on the site in a similar way to that in which forum participants are already registered - please don't read anything into this about costs, its a means of identifying each photographer and allowing them to access their own material. Johan is working on this and it'll be launched in due course."

Is this still on a "to do" list or was it abandoned for technical or other reasons?

This is a good question Mark.

It has been on my mind in the last day or two, coincidentally. I have recently re-edited a previously rejected image, but forgot the original comments I added to the initial photo. I like the comments sections and try to put something there that is informative and/or of interest - I also enjoy reading other photographers' comments. I have now remembered one issue that I put in the original upload, but forgot to put in the second version. I would like to be able to add the comment, as I think it adds to the photo (assuming it gets accepted this time round  Wink ) but, given the length of the queue, I am reluctant to pull the photo, and so lose its place, just for this.

I would certainly support the introduction of this facility if it can be done securely and without too much hassle for the Crew.

All the best.

Paul

Paul, Log in at the "myphotos" section, and view your rejected photo. The original comment is also there. Just a matter of copy/paste then. This is how I do it..  Smile

Thanks Kas - I did know about that way of doing things. But that assumes you have not appealed the photo (unsuccessfully), whereupon the rejected photo - and its comment - disappears into oblivion  Wink.

Cheers.

Would love to see such a feature, was also thinking of an option
to replace the uploaded photo with a (better) edited version
without losing your place in the queue.


Cheers,

Marinus.

No, this will encourage people to "bag" a place in the queue in the hope they can produce something better later. Your first submission should be the best you can acheive at the time. If it's not good enough and gets rejected, tough! If it does get in, there is already the option to subsequently submit an improved version of the original.

The option of editing comments would be really useful. However, I suspect a.net would prefer to retain control over the photo comments because otherwise the policy of removing comments like "first photo of this plane on a.net" would become unworkable.

Is this policy, because I have seen several new additions recently still with this comment?

I wasn't aware that comments such as 'first photo on the database' were removed.
I have put this on recently on a 25 year old photo of a 727, a photo taken in March of an Uzbekistan 757 that I was surprised was not on the database, and other aircraft where they were appearing in new liveries for the first time.
The comments all made it through.

Willo, Mick,

See this thread: http://www.airliners.net/discussions...ation_photography/read.main/167832

My understanding is that it's the database editors rather than the screeners who busy themselves with this sort of thing. Which would explain why it's still possible for such comments to make it into the database along with new photos.

One thing the rejected photos queue is missing is any CN or Code that you entered. Otherwise, grabbing the info from the rejected queue is really convienent.
