Accepted Shot Removed From Database - Why?

Tue Feb 13, 2007 9:32 pm

My most recent upload was rejected for "Editing". I appealed and it was accepted. After a few days in the database and a few hundred hits, the shot has apparently been removed.

Why? I have emailed the screeners but got no reply.

I think we mailed you twice, maybe take a look at your spam folder?

Thanks, but I have not received a mail from you and there is nothing from you in my spam folder.

Gary sent you the original email AND replied to your email yesterday, before you created this thread.

The shot was added on error, and was deleted.

you might want to check with your email provider and/or ISP

Clearly yes - I get emails from all over the world - including rejection or acceptance emails from Anet. Anet should look for the beam in its own eye before finding the mote in mine.

"pt.lu" is posts and telegraphs Luxembourg - the state-run ISP. Fully reliable.

That's our good old national post here in Luxembourg and at the same time our biggest Internet provider if I'm not mistaken.  Wink

Though as you probably know mails might take a little longer to arrive at their destination...  duck

well, Gary's email was recieved by everyone but you, so I do'nt know what to say.

I am not sure how we would fix that, but if you have ideas please send then to support@airliners.net


For the record I have no idea what a mote is.

That has become obvious.

One suggestion: When a shot is appealed, the decision to accept it or not should be based only on the original reason for rejection, i.e. whether that reason was valid or not.

I'm done talking to you about this now . It's a waste of my time.

Viv,

i honestly can´t see your problem. We have offered our help, emailed you twice and gave you information and advice in this thread. What else do you want?

I don't want to prolong the discussion and I really do appreciate the advice. But I am tired of being told that it is somehow my fault that I have not received the emails about this (which I haven't). The last email I got about this was that the shot had been accepted on appeal.
I have checked with my ISP - everything is ok at my end. Today I have received emails from Ireland, England, France, Ecuador and Luxembourg. My email is working.

Just came across this one: Spam Protection In Photographer Contact Form (by Administrator Feb 13 2007 in Aviation Photography)

I'm not an expert but maybe this new filter has something to do with Viv not receiving the e-mails?

Most ISP's have spam filters and arbitrarily block e-mails for any of a number of reasons: the e-mail didn't come from another ISP (ie: when someone sends from a domain name like @airliners.net but sends the e-mail through @myISP.net's server), if a certain number from the same domain hit the filter in a given period of time, the list goes on.

So @airliners.net might be in the ISP's spam list, or it might not but still be blocked. You might also have accidently blocked it in your own spam filter (I've done it!). Regardless the cause, making comments like "it's a waste of my time" is hardly fair given that the problem isn't diagnosed and the screeners have been trying to help. In all fairness, there are way fewer outgoing spam filters than incoming, so if e-mails were sent to you, they are much less likely to have been stopped at the source than at the receiving end.

You should be able to put the "@airliners.net" domain name on a safe list so that everything sent from there automatically comes straight through. Anomalies like this do crop up from time to time. One forum member, and only that member couldn't receive emails from a hotmail account of mine a while back and his ISP were completely clueless to the problem. I switched email accounts and everything works fine now.

Regards,

Tim.

Royal,

Yes, I received it. Thanks.

The previous failure must have been a one-off glitch. Not worth spending more time on.

And thanks for your help. I apologise for sounding off at you.

Exactly!

And many ISP's do this without their customers knowledge... I'm dealing with two (mainly), and about every month they re-activate the spam filter for my account, which I then insist they turn off again, as I don't like them making decisions for me. One thing that gets stuck in that filter, for instance, is Amazon.com order confirmations (whereas shipping confirmations go through).

Mine does it with our knowledge, but they don't bother looking to see if anything is in their filter. It takes on average 25 minutes to get through their phone system to talk to somebody, then they just deny anyone is on the blacklist instead of actually looking. Better yet, they blame the sending ISP for blocking stuff coming to me!

I've also tried resolving blocked addresses using their e-mail system but never received a response. Fortunately they haven't blocked anything from Airliners.net, but maybe as more and more people in Western Canada submit images and e-mail volume increases, it could become problematic with the way my ISP works.
