Priority Screening?

Sat Oct 12, 2013 7:19 am

Have they stopped Priority Screening? I uploaded what I considered to be a fairly interesting shot of an incident over 24 hours ago and no action has been taken, not even an email to say its not eligible.

Regards.

Hey there,

in order to receive priority screening you'll have to send an email to our priority team at priorityscreening@airliners.net

shortly saying why the shot would deserve priority along with the registration of the aircraft and your photographer name.

Kind Regards,

Thierry

Sorry Thierry. But that's not true
I have two picture since October 2 in priority screening. Ten days ago!!! I send the e-mail to priority team. Still I have not reply of this team. I don´t know because the pictures aren´t eligible to priority screener. If priority is working, is working very bad.

Not the first time this has happened recently.

Best regards

Bustin

Hi,

We certainly did not stop priority screening, as you can see from the banner being refreshed with new stuff.

One thing to clarify is that even the members of the priority team are all volonteers and are not necessarily online the whole day. We do our best to screen priority requests when they are eligible and to respond when they are not. We may of course make mistakes, as every human being.

John, your shot is in discussion within the team. That can take longer. I will remind the team right after this.

Bustin, I only retrieved an e-mail with 2 upload ID's, with which we cannot retrieve the photos. Can you please provide or re-provide the registrations? (not here, in the priority e-mail)

This thread is the opportunity to remind you what is said in the guidelines about priority requests: "The email should contain the motive for the request and at least the photographer name and registration "

In your request for priority screening, please provide:
- The registration (very important to retrieve the photo in the queue). I say again: the upload ID does not help.
- Your photographer name, exactly as it appears on your photo banner (this is to avoid selecting all the photos with a given registration. Ex: when an AC just received a new paint scheme, using the registration only will give all photos with old paint scheme)
- The motive for requesting priority. When only "Hot shot" is indicated, we may try to guess why it is "hot", but is better if you write down the exact reason for requesting priority.

Hope it clarifies.

Cheers
Patrick

Thanks guys, the shot was just accepted. It's not everyday I see an airliner with its taxi lights facing backwards!
Just to clarify though. I actually did send the appropriate email with all of the required info re motive, rego and name.
Regards.

Well Patrick.

I send two full info e-mail to priority screener the October 2. After October 9. After seven days without reply!!!, a second e-mail with ID upload number to ask info because I has not reply.

I send you another e-mail, again, with full info because I think this pictures are priority screener.

Upload id: 4879620 Is the first C295M with full United Nations markings.

Upload id: 4879623 Is marked how "hot show" because the pictures is of a special event "First A400M delivery Ceremony" with A400M with temporal light special colour to the show. Logically after ten days without reply from priority team, "hot shot" no would make sense, now is "Cold shot". But...I am not guilty of this delay.

Best Regards

Bustin

Well

C-295M accepted in priority after ten days in queue. Apology accepted.

A400M rejection by bad editing by motivates that I can not fathom because I think something really mad excuse (with all respect to the screener)
The personal fron screener "Strange square head on the man standing up bottom-right of frame. Bad editing ?"

I am waiting the appelation. After I wiil post the picture here. To general opinions.

Regards

I'm pretty sure if a photo is submitted for priority with email to the priority screening team and they determine it is not eligible, it quietly enters the regular queue.
