To cope with the very high numbers of photos uploaded during the summer period, the upload queue limits have been reduced. They are approximately cut in half for most of you (check the current queue limits here).
At first, you might consider this a bad thing but think about it:
- The upload queue will be cut in half
- Your waiting time will be cut in half!
- Photographer pre-upload self screening will increase.
So if this change works as intended, the queue will be shorter, waiting times shorter and photo quality higher!
Our goal is not to continue decreasing the queue limits for everyone, quite the opposite. Our long term goal is to remove all limits for everyone and cut down screening time to 24 hours or less. But please understand that it is very, very difficult to accomplish. Good photo screeners are hard to find and there's a limit to how much screening one can do in a day. We will work to improve our screening interface and introduce improvements for photographers and screeners alike and hope to one day be able to remove all kinds of limits.
But for now, let's try this and see if the situation is improved. Please do not hesitate to post suggestions if you have any ideas that might help the queue situation.
