Is this not a valid 'Priority Screening Upload'?

Tue Mar 12, 2019 12:45 am

Hi all,

I uploaded this shot late Sunday night (UK time), as a priority upload - BA's retro Landor paint scheme. However, it was downgraded as not being a valid priority.

There are only 3 other photos in the database of G-BNLY in this paint scheme, and it only got painted on Sat 9th March, so I thought it would have been a worthy Priority Screening given that I uploaded it on 10th March.

Any ideas?

Only the first photo should be considered for priority screening, regardless of whether it's a new livery, new registration, etc. In this case it's likely that the three photos you mentioned were uploaded more or less simultaneously, justifying priority screening for all three of them.

A priority window is open for 24h, counted from the time the first photo is accepted. The first photo of -G-BNLY was accepted on March 9 at 16:31 UTC. Yours was uploaded on March 11 at 00:56:21 UTC. So purely regarding the deprioritizing, the screener was correct.
