When is an aircraft considered to be "common" in the database?

Thu Jun 06, 2019 1:36 pm

I had a photo of an A359 ULR rejected and one of the reasons was that it was "common".

I did check the database before uploading and there were only 6 examples of this aircraft in the database. However, the registration (9V-SGD) was also used on other aircraft and the database had 99 photos of aircraft bearing this registration.

Can someone explain to me if the screener was just looking at the total number of photos in the database when it was declared "common"? Does the screener also look at the aircraft type before making the decision?

I would not have submitted a photo to the database if I had known that it was "common" but I was somewhat surprised that it was so after only 6 examples have been uploaded! Have the guidelines been changed?

Obvious error on the part of the screener(s).

I would address the other rejection reasons and reupload.

I do remember seeing 100 mentioned as common somewhere.

General rule of thumb is 100. Also, "Common" will never be used by itself but in addition to other rejection reasons. Common images are held to a higher standard due to their common nature.

Cheers.

The screener likely overlooked the fact that the registration has been re-used. I agree with Royal’s advise for such cases.

Its not an easy task for screeners and mistakes are understandable. I just wanted to clarify the position in case I misunderstood the guidelines!

Thank you for the clarification.
