What Kas is trying to say is that there are a few losers who constantly vote my photos, to make me look bad. It is ridiculous that so many standard shots of mine make PC. If there was a way to make my shots ineligible I would be all for it. Not sure how getting a PC award would make you look bad, b...Jump to post
And as mentioned before the threshold is low - I would say (though I have no evidence for this) often 3-4 votes might be enough. I think there is much more going on there and that the story is different that one might think at first, for example as soon as any shot is positively commented by a cert...Jump to post
I do agree with the first as well. But it is there, it was accepted, so unfortunately we cannot change it. So a bit pointless IMO. We all know it shouldn't be there. That's like saying if xy politician wouldn't have been there some stuff wouldn't have happened. Still they are there and doing their ...Jump to post
Unfortunately the photographer has put us between a rock and a hard place Although I don't know any further details, I think that could have been avoided if the photo was immediately rejected upon screening. I can imagine the photographer being upset when told that the photo will be removed after i...Jump to post
Just because some blurry shots go through it is like no reason that others are now acceptable? Honestly that is like arguing just because some were not caught speeding you feel the right to drive 100 where usually the Limit says 70 as well. I think the point is that it can be frustrating for photog...Jump to post
A database error is "Site Related". If the editors don't check "Site Related" then what's the value of it? This is what Kas wrote in a different topic approx. three months ago: Unfortunately the editors haven't had (and still don't have) their tools since the site relaunch. As a...Jump to post
Still a spectacular uniqe shot might be accepted despite some issues. I believe there are other websites for that, e.g. airplane-pictures.net. Isn't the A.net philosophy to display high quality photos, regardless of whether these are plain landing shots or spectacular unique shots? I'm also curious...Jump to post
Do you feel the entire Non-Aviation forum should be closed? Why discuss anything else on an aviation website? Exactly, there are plenty of other websites/forums/social media to discuss Non-Aviation stuff. A.net should stick to their core business IMO, which is aviation and photography.

Still remains a mystery how such (obviously bad quality) photos are being accepted while other (higher quality) photos are being rejected. Sure, once could be an accident, but now it's starting to make people raise their eyebrows regarding the screening policy/consistency.Jump to post
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. Cheers, Miguel I guess the same applies to this one: https://www.airl...Jump to post

by no means is Airliners.net an afterthought for them Half a year has now passed in which there has been no evidence to support this statement. Virtually nothing has been done to improve the website, fix bugs, etc., at least not visible to the end-users, who in turn are the ones that bring in the a...Jump to post
Speaking of quality standards, how come this blurry photo got accepted and even promoted on FB?

Having never taken a good look at the Trip Report forum, I was a little surprised & disappointed to find merely reports about flight journeys. As this is mostly an aviation photography website, I expected trip reports to be about actual plane-spotting trips with a description of the airports tha...Jump to post
I'm not sure if the photo has been adjusted in the meantime, but it looks more or less level to me: 1. runway is horizontal 2. lines at the corners of the hangar are vertical 3. line between the roof and wall on the side of the hangar is horizontal The shape of the hangar might also be a factor: it ...Jump to post

dutchspooter1 - what exactly is "poor" about my Skyvan shot? I already mentioned that. But, it also didn't receive 750 photo views in a couple of hours (like the photo I questioned to start this thread). On average it sure did. And there weren't two identical photos added before it (again...Jump to post
If you can post an example of me uploading a photo and getting more than a couple hundred views in an hour, aside from something that’s being promoted as new, then please do.. How about N80GB with 7K views within less than 24 hrs? It's a nice Skyvan, but nothing special and the light is actually qu...Jump to post
It is unfathomable that such a poor shot, of a nothing subject, would receive that many views, so quickly. I'm sure people are thinking that about some of your photos as well. Side-on photos of ordinary airlines at SEA that get thousands of views in a matter of hrs/days (even though the quality of ...Jump to post
It depends pretty much on the angle and type of aircraft. For side-on photos (like the Etihad Dreamliner) I think you should always include the entire aircraft (including the horizontal stabilizer), but for head-on photos you could cut out part of the wings and only include the fuselage and engines....Jump to post
I've been to southern Arizona three times (2017, 2018, 2019). You can find the trip reports on my website http://www.aviaspotters.nl (I'm still working on the 2019 report but didn't visit too many new locations compared to '17/'18)). Of course you can find my photos on this website (https://www.airl...Jump to post
I think a lot of spotters who take photos at airside (i.e. "infield") arranged this through their job or connections. As a hobbyist/photographer it is usually very tough to get airside access at large airports but much easier at smaller (e.g. general aviation) airports. As a rule of thumb,...Jump to post
A while back I ran into a group of spotters at PHX, all under the age of 18. None of them, not a single one, knew what Airliners.net was. They did however know about the "other site" and had hundreds of pictures there spread across them. Speaks for itself I think. I think part of the reas...Jump to post
