these two were rejected for badinfo. I know for 200000% certainty that the C/Ns were properly put in when I uploaded. Maybe theyre not visible on the rejected page? Anyway, what other info is wrong?
what seems to be the officer, problem?

From the upload guidlines:

"4. Airline aircraft which are untitled will be listed as "Untitled" with the airline name between brackets, like "Untitled (TMA - Trans Mediterranean Airlines)", or "Untitled (America West Express (Mesa Airlines))". "

It always amazes me how contributors seemingly refuse to read the supporting help associated with the upload page... (see reply 1).

Also, I hope you checked the correct category on the confirmation page. I'll give you a clue - those airplanes are not in standard colours!

That's what i get for using the dropdowns eh?

Checking previous photos, they're not "Untitled" so, go figure. Spare me the sarcasm next time.

From the upload page:
===
Note 2: Use of the Auto Complete function is now mandatory when you have access to the aircraft registration.
===

I entered both registrations on the upload page and used the Auto complete. In the List box for the airlines the entry "Untitled <-- (Standardized)" resp. "Untitled (Egypt Air)" shows up.

Hope this helps

For the first one (screenshot of drop down list), if you know an "unstandardised" one is correct, choose it.

For the second one, if you think that the correct option isn't in the drop down lists that using auto complete brings up, you need to read the help items - that's what they're there for. Then you can make your own entry up by following the rules or looking at other photos in the database.

The rule about auto complete is that it must always be used first when you have the registration, as most of the time it brings up the correct info. Titles on aircraft change, e.g. Condor > Thomas Cook (> Condor), so obviously when the titles first changed, you wouldn't go with the Condor entry if it clearly says Thomas Cook on the aircraft. This is an example of when you need to make your own decisions.

And finally, the category for these would be OTHER_PAINT.

Previous shots were accepted under the airline name, also, I know I would personally prefer it to come with the airline name if I did a search for it. So this is a case of one screener being picky with the rules. I do believe I checked other_paint but I cant check now if I did can I? Since using the dropdowns is compulsary (sic), I just went with what was standardized and what was in the D/B since before. Now 7 days Q time and screener time is wasted. Not bashing just saying. Will reupload as Untitled then, hoping for the same screeners then I suppose.

Rules are rules, there's no being picky about it really. This one didn't follow the rules, it was rejected for badinfo, as are lots of other photos.
Some other photos with incorrect info make it into the database, most of the time this is later corrected as more subjects are tackled by the editors.

No idea. Either way, it doesn't matter, for the benefit of other photographers reading the thread, it should be OTHER_PAINT.

But you (and others probably) have learned something, so it's not all bad  Wink

What I've learned is that the dropdowns can't be trusted. This aint exactly my first upload. It's gonna be awhile before I head down to TLS again tho so as soon as these two are in I'll be on easy street again =P.

Egypt Air is Standardized mate. Whats the point of standardizing if they're no use. And when I looked at the previous pics ALL where airline named. The one that is now Untitled has been changed since. Meaning it was impossible to know for me.
