"category" : A Rejection That Is Unnecssary?

Sat Dec 03, 2005 1:59 pm

I feel this is an editorial change that can be accomplished by the screeners!

Look ,if the screeners know a catergory is wrong then by default they should most likely know what the right catergory is! So why cant that "new" category get ticked by THEM? These pictures have to be thrown back in the queque and go through the screening process. The image quality hasnt changed! One more or less box has been ticked! Actually it is more work for screeners as an image that had made it into the queue and may have got some screening starts the process all over again.

If some information is blatantly fishy about the image,please send it back

Look...i have got this a few time and a lot of the times i feel it is due to some confusion. For example:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...ctions/big/20051202_DSC00069a2.JPG

I selected:
"Categories: CABIN,WARBIRD"

which apparently were not good enough or wrong

The fact is I dont what else or if I should even not click any of the above.

and i did not get a hint or clue from the screener(s).

Here is my logic.. this is NOT a cockpit but a "cabin". The B-17 Cockpit is located on a higher leval. This a civilian registration but carries Military markings so it is "WARBIRD".

I wonder if they want me to tick "Window view"...but i am not really shooting thru a window.

First off we don't tick categories you do that on the upload. If we had to change it we have to type it in in upper case manually and that takes far too long.

Have you appealed the shot with your explanation of why you put CABIN, WARBIRD?

Colin

Semi related to this...

The remarks... Some remarks for photos include BADinfo... There is one photo I took interest in helping the individual get the correct info. I emailed the photog, respectfully, letting him know of the error and I didnt recieve a reply. I emailed the db guys to notify them of this so they could fix it or remove the comment altogether and the remark is still there, no reply from them either. If you are going to make a point to reject a photo for badinfo, it should be extended to the remarks area when info is placed in that section.

With all due respect to the screeners, they probably don't know the details of the aircraft, especially military aircraft. If the shot gets in, the DB editors should take an interest in making the corrections as necessary, especially when emailed and notified of the error.

Cheers,
Chad

I think you've got a point here.
This would be a good idea.

If not possible to do so, perhaps at least a hint for what boxes should/shouldn't be ticked could be in the rejection mail.

A while back, I made a suggestion that we be able to edit certain details on our own pics that are in the Q.

As we have all made mistakes in uploading before, for us to check our details before they go into screening, and make adjustments where needed, maybe more of us will suffer less rejections and waste less screening time. Given that, in the time that we have between uploading, and screening, we could find out if we have the proper categories ticked, and if not, make the change, without having to wait another week for it to be screened a second time.

Not saying that you haven't Eksath, but few people seem to actually read the "help" sections that are linked to the categories, or spend any time whatsoever in figuring out what categories need to be added to their photo.

It doesn't seem all that difficult to tick "helicopter" when you are uploading one, yet these and many other mistakes get made by regular uploaders. Just remember that the info you supply is just as important as the quality of your photo when it comes to screening!

Tim, so what if the remark has wrong info? This is misleading as well.

Last time I typed CABIN,WARBIRD

It took me less than 2 seconds. Is it really that difficult? Come on, that is not an excuse as you are making the work tougher on you in the long run.

As difficult as it is to get right the first time.


And, they would have to do it over, and over, and over, and over.......

It's not broke, don't try to fix it.

In all fairness, it can be a little ambiguous at times when uploading.

I have a shot in the queue at the minute, which is a new reg. for the database, and was unsure as to what I should upload it as being.

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/gawla2307brei1200.jpg

When asked about the airline, I've ticked 'Private', but also put 'Bagby Aviation' instead of leaving it 'Untitled', as there is small titling on the tail. Whether or not I'll get a 'NOA_Info' rejection, I don't know, but I just accept I'll have to wait and see.

Regards,

Tim.
Obviously missing something....

Why don't you use your infinite wonderful wisdom and tell us all the correct categories that the above mentioned photo would fit under, then?  sarcastic

I had a wing shot rejected until it was changed to include WINDOW_VIEW. Though it was not shot through a window it is a "window view" type of shot

Michael, Thanks for the pointers (good shots,too). Yes this is N93012.

Screeners..can you give me some help here?...is it NO to "Cabin"? and/or YES to "Window view"?.....or something else I missed?

I am assuming "Warbird" is right!
