Another Tough Rejection

Sat Mar 24, 2007 12:30 am

Ed had to reject this one. Seeing as it was old colors I was hoping it would get in. At least one HS thinks there was cloning.

I'm sorry man, but that united thingy is overexposed like hell. Better luck next time  Wink.

Oh man, I was looking forward to seeing a pic of UA's new forward-swept wing aircraft in the database. Oh well, have to wait for the next attempt.

TIS

P.S. Out of sheer curiosity, was this an actual submission into the queue?!!?!?

And I thought less tough acceptance criteria would apply for such rare aircraft...!

Yes, it was, and the "photog" was banned for 3 months.

Oh come ON!!! I mean, that HAS to be the very first shot of a forward swept wing in United colors.

This site is going down the tubes if newsworthy events like this don't get accepted.

This is BS, man.

See...this just proves that the screeners are inconsistant. Obviously this is one of the best pics any of us have seen and you guys reject it for no good reason, you should be ashamed of yourselves!

Sadly, a great photo is left out of the DB.  Sad Dallas airport, hmmm, I think I recognize that terminal.

That's  redflag  (unless he/she did it often).

I think that's absolutely Hilarious!! I'd love to see something like that taken less seriously by the staff, and more seriously by the author. I'm sure between the two meeting 1/2 way we could come up with a #1 that would stay there for more then 24 hours.

Should've saved something like it for April Fools. I'm sure it would've been better than the pink and purple front page that we got last year :-/

Yeah, the screeners should accept it to the DB as an April fools joke on April 1st. Just leave it in there for that day only. LOL

3 Months!!! Someone needs sence of humour transplant.

Also, did you get the photographers permission to reproduce his/her
image on this forum?

What length of ban for copyright violation.

Good, that might give them some time to learn how to fingerpaint and do all the other Kindergarten things that kids do.

You're serious?! If it's not funny, then why are you posting it here? If you had a good laugh, why ban the guy?

Holy cow, even a light hearted thread turns negative.

I didn't ban the guy, but whoever did felt that the person was waisting our time, and I happen to agree!

Is that the type of person you want uploading pictures? We don't  Wink

I decided to show you an idea of how silly people can be, and the type of nonsense we wade through.

Next time I wont  Smile

No No, post again!! It's classic!! I'm actually wondering if the damage section was selected as the nose and cockpit area look really really stuffed!!!

I'm still having a good cackle here!!

Look... I rejected it, I banned him... If he's is trying to pull off a joke: fine... It was funny once, but this person (or anyone else) better not make a habit of it. I told him exactly what Carlos said:

And if it really was a kid, it surprises me that he can clone the UA logos in there, but can't understand that this database is for actual photos.

I agree with the ban and the advertisement of the ban. It's funny maybe if one person does it one time, but people complain so much about queue size here that I'm sure everyone knows what would happen should there be a lot of these "jokes".

Royal,
I'm with Shep here, when you can't have a little bit of fun what is the point?
I have spoken to screeners when out shooting and they have spoken about some of the pics they get to see, shots of a TV screen taken with a cell phone and the such like. I personally would like to see more of that kind of rejection highlighted, firstly to illustrate the crap that does get submitted and occupies screeners time and secondly provide a bit of a giggle for the members.

Cheers

C

Ditto

At first, I didn't think it was a real rejection subsequently causing me to laugh harder reading the later threads. We only have to look at Frank Duarte's latest to see some nice examples of former United colors. Thanks Royal and Frank.
