Re: Screening issues

Look at the details on the Saab. Look at the registration, the lines below it, the exhaust pipe of the engines, wheels, windows, etc. All of those show thin light halos and jagged edges. That is the oversharpening. Now compare that with the LH and with the Iraqi. If you see all three the same, maybe...

Re: Reuploading a Photo

It appears that there are technical issues in the photo reupload functionality. We have reported them to the development team and are currently waiting to hear back from them.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

It is indeed too blurry and was accepted by mistake. The photographer has been notified already and the shot will be removed.

I have to agree that the angle and the motive are great, but in this case the quality just isn't there.

In terminal 1 I would recommend the area around gate A28 and the new Z pier (gates A50 - A69) if you are in the Schengen area. From there the only option to get to the viewing deck is to go landside and take the bus to terminal 2 as the skylink train is closed at the moment.

Shouldn’t the “Aircraft Manufacturer Filter Enabled” be set to “Yes”? I guess setting it to “No” makes the site try to insert new values in the database, and that fails as the value already exists. Just a guess on my side.

Re: Unifying airline/aircraft/airport names in photo search

Unification / Standarization of duplicated entries is high on the priority list, but at this point is just not possible for the editors to do such batch processing. As soon as the tools are ready - no idea when - I am sure they will clean up duplicates as quickly as possible.

As there is already one shot in the database, priority screening does not apply anymore.

Or is there anything else that I am missing?
