Bear in mind that my comment was made about five days ago and that was the case then. Several of mine were affected though I was not aware until they were accepted, and re-uploads did sort them out.

Several people have asked about whether to upload or not and I have advised them to wait if they can. I have only uploaded one in the past week. That took a few attempts and was done simply to test the system and I do think it is wisest to wait. Disabling uploads was suggested (by me actually) but it was not easy to do apparently. We have no real idea of how many images are affected but the developers believe that they can be corrected. We do not have a way of deleting images and it may be that we do have to reject them but as this no longer affects upload rates, is this really an issue ?

Karl
I don't think you are being at all fair on Dana there. A hypothetical question was asked and the way he responded was simply to say that he could not answer hypothetical questions. I do not see how that shows any contempt, particularly from a Screener that gives more to this site than probably any other !

We are all disappointed and, having just taken on four new trainees it feels like one step forward and two back.

New hardware is needed and we will keep you updated when we are able

My experience today is that very few photographs that I have uploaded are making it through successfully to the queue.

Everyone is free to make their own decisions on what to do, depending on how patient and determined they are to get a particular image into the queue at the moment, but I would recommend saving some frustration by not uploading until the situation improves.

Probably best to go out and take some fresh images or work on those you have already taken so they are ready for when the upload system is fixed.

I'm off to do quite a bit of image deletion from my queue....

Best regards,

Jim

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 46):
The re-upload function is practical for small volumes of images, but if every image accepted in a day needed to be re-uploaded, it will simply be overwhelmed, thus it is not a viable option for the thousands of images potentially affected that are currently in the queue.

I was referring to the script that PanAm_DC10 mentioned, not the re-upload feature, for that specific part of my sentence. It wouldn't make a great deal of sense to re-upload something that isn't actually uploaded to the database yet.

Why not just come out and say, DO NOT UPLOAD AT THIS TIME, we will let you know when the upload problem is fixed. Surely not blaming the screening team for this problem, but I think it is up to someone on the site to come to this decision.

I'm quite astonished at the contempt shown to the people who make this site tick.

Me too Karl. The fact while screeners have no control over this yet Dana is doing his best to answer questions and getting flamed for it astonishes me. You'd think he would be shown a little less contempt.

As Dana has pointed out, we cannot screen default images for obvious reasons. If we merely put a "second opinion" on a default image that is in the queue, in short order any screener who pulls a batch to screen will have nothing but a page full of default images. This describes the need to start rejecting these images so we can actually get to images in the queue that can be screened.

Whether someone from the site in the right position comes to the decision to disable uploads or not or determines how this might even be accomplished, hopefully we can understand that uploading our own queues full of default images and leaving them there will possibly result in some sort of issue just by common sense. If you upload and get a default image, no sense leaving it in the queue.

As Mick said, once information is available, it will be passed along. In the meantime we will continue to handle the day to day as best we can. Thanks in advance for your patience as we wait the fix from the developers.

I'm not doing any flaming about the handling of the situation. There is an etiquette to language and communication but some of Dana's recent posts seem very abrupt; almost sarcastic. It certainly doesn't offend me but there are others who feel the tone is a little unnecessary. Whether this abruptness is inadvertant I don't know but judging by the messages I get from people to whom the responses have been directed the negativity hasn't gone unnoticed.

We do talk behind the scenes you know. Unfortunately most don't have the confidence to put what they feel or think into words here. If others felt my responses were inappropriate or liable to be taken the wrong way I would really appreciate being told. Indeed, on many occasions I have been told.

I will be the first to accept that Dana's responses are well-intended, if he were to say. But it is important to recognise that many here don't use English as a first language, and should therefore be extended more patience than the rest of us.

So basically nobody can upload Pictures righ now, is this correct?

You can, but the outcome of anything submitted before a fix is in place is uncertain. For that reason, we recommend waiting a few days.

Quoting JakTrax (Reply 48):
The way we're all being dictated to about pulling our images 'or else' suggests that it's our loss and our problem

No one is 'dictating' anything to you. Advice was requested, and one suggestion was removing one's corrupted images from the queue. Nowhere was it stated that you had to do so.

Quoting dazbo5 (Reply 49):
If that is the case Dana, until the site problems have been corrected, why not disable uploads until the problem is resolved?

As Mick said, if we (the screeners) had that capability, we would have done it days ago. We have been told by the developers that it is not an option.

Quoting dazbo5 (Reply 49):
While Micks comment suggest its ony effecting a small proportion of photos, my experience is I'm having difficultly trying to upload anything at the moment without the default image showing and how can we have confidant that there are no issues with those we are managing to upload?

We simply must wait and hope that whatever is implemented tomorrow by the developers works. If not, when we reach the point in the queue where the majority of images are corrupted, things will start getting a lot worse.

Quoting andrew50 (Reply 56):

Well, we know there at least a few that don't like being dictated to  
In all seriousness, only a small percentage of uploaders regularly visit the forum, so any directive would be missed by most. We also hold out the hope that a fix will be put in place tomorrow that will repair any corrupted images already in the queue, so the do not upload advice would only be for those that lack the confidence in a fix being put in place.

How directly do the screeners interact with the developers of the site? Dana and other screeners are often the public face of the site administration for the sake of the photographer community, anyway, but it sounds like the people who run it on the technical side, who would really have any answers to be had here, are separate to some degree.

In addition, an inability to "close" the upload queue sounds counterintuitive on the face of it from my layman's perspective. I'm dimly aware that this is an older website and has changed management before though, so I would be unsurprised if a lot of things work differently from other online photos sites and message boards.

From my understanding, the fact that this site was built up, added to, and kept running by various forms of coding from different sources, added at different times, is a big reason why we experience these problems from time to time, and why fixes are not as easy as they would seem.

Dana, the last couple of replies have been much more informative; had you outlined earlier why possible solutions wouldn't have worked and why I doubt anyone could have interpreted your comments as abrupt.

I don't take offence to anything said in these forums, by anyone - I'm simply saying that some of your comments could be (and at times are) construed as unhelpful and/or patronising by others.

As for the current issue, if it's not possible to solve it by any other means than to delete images from the queue, then so be it. No big deal. We'll just have to wait until the programmers overcome the problem.

I think that in addition to hardware improvements, it might be a good idea for the developers to consider developing a new backbone software for this website on the side, to reduce the likelihood of unexpected yet substantial issues like this one.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately it is taking longer for a fix to be implemented than we had hoped. As we will be reaching the point in the queue where the corrupted images start to appear in only a few hours, the screening team has decided to immediately halt all screening until the time where a fix has been found, and put into place. Going hand-in-hand with that, we ask that you please stop uploading images until a fix has been announced. We still cannot confirm that images currently in the queue with corrupted thumbnails will be recoverable, so there is no point in adding to the problem. As mentioned above, we would like to have disabled the upload function, but that option is not available to us, so if you know anyone who is still uploading, but does not frequent the forum, please let them know it would be best to stop uploading until things are running normally again.

Obviously we are just as unhappy about this as you, so apologies would seem moot...

You may still see a few images being added over the next few hours (to clear out images already in screening).

Thanks for reading,

Dana

Hi,

I am bit surprised as the images I uploaded in the last few days (since saturday) are correctly displayed with the thumbnail as well as the medium size being available.

But perhaps I was just lucky.

I will stop uploading new ones though.

Dana, thanks for the update.
It is good to know the situation and guidance when system got a trouble.
I have checked my current submissions in the queue pipeline and found 13 out of 15 got affected one way or the other.
Have removed all of those thirteen just hoping to unload the system as I do not see any points keeping them in the queue.
Hope system got a fix soon and we can enjoy the great airline picture experience again.
Thank you

If they all look ok, they probably are so I suggest that you leave them.

Yoshio however had 13/15 affected and he has removed them (thank you Yoshio)

Many people are however still uploading and we fear that many of those uploaded are not going to have been successful uploads. A lot of uploaders do not visit this forum, indeed a lot do not have English as a language so that seems grossly unfair and our feelings have been passed on to that effect.

I had two in the queue recently and both had the thumbnail and small/large version available - however it was the medium-sized image that was affected and so I assumed the files were corrupt and removed them.

From what I understand, unless EVERY image connected to each upload is visible your files will have been corrupted.

As Mick said, if there are no default images associated with the upload (thumbnail or medium size), best to leave it in the queue for now, as we believe these will not be affected.

I have not gone through the whole thread, but if you didnt know already, photos that has been in the que without being default, for like 5-6 days all off a sudden turned default. Guess the best thing for me to do is to delete the photos and dont upload anyhing for quite a while as no one can see the light in the end of the tunnel by now.

^ Further to McG1967 comment,

I would check for ALL sizes of your photos. Click on all; small, medium and large size. If your photo miraculously appear on all three sizes, then leave it in the queue.

I had about ten in the queue which were appearing normal, now I've got none (left 3 photos there to retain the caption).

Some photos shows the thumbnail OK, the large and small OK, then the medium size as the default image. I deleted those ones.

Hendra

I just uploaded one and it also seems fine in all sizes.

Also, the uploads with only the medium image missing seem to have no issues otherwise. Two of mine got accepted, and they are behaving normally. I got them a medium image thorugh the re-upload function as was previously recommended.

Not being entirely convinced I just uploaded one, and it too is 100% fine in all guises.

Can I therefore leave this in the queue to be screened as normal or should I pull it?

The screeners have asked that we discontinue uploading but they have no way of stopping us. You can leave it or you can remove it, it's your choice. However, according to the screeners, the problem still exists.

Just my 2 Cents.

I have a few in the upload queue since 7 days or so. Everything was fine (neither thumbnail nor medium image missing) and they are still as fine as they used to be. So for my pictures nothing has changed.

Don't think I need to take them off the queue. That's what my normal sense tells me and there was never an post from the anet crew that asked pictures without issues to be removed..

Anyway if I look at the upload queue status perhaps only 20% or so were taken off the queue. It is still like ~800 pics a day. So that clearly shows that only a few photgraphers know about this situation..

No, there has been no change. We have in fact been told it may yet be days before anything is done.

if you didnt know already, photos that has been in the que without being default, for like 5-6 days all off a sudden turned default.

This is the real problem. As new images are being uploaded, they are in turn corrupting images already in the queue. One of my own images uploaded three days ago (after multiple attempts to get an un-corrupted image through), now has the default image. It would be best to monitor what you currently have in the queue, and leave anything that for the time being looks ok - just be aware that images that were ok in the queue before are now being corrupted.

Oh. That is bad. I'll stop uploading then.

only a few photgraphers know about this situation..

Of course, how should they know if they don't visit this forum.

However, disabling the upload page is hardly rocket science I think...

But if I get this clear, I should remove all the images that shows default on the small image, but is visible on medium and large?

Sorry we don't have the ability to send out a bulk email to all users. The developers have made some progress in relation to uploads and the affected images, we'll post another update shortly.

Today's update:

Uploads should now be ok; a permanent fix has not yet been implemented, but there should no longer be any images being corrupted upon upload. If you are still seeing newly uploaded images being corrupted, please let us know.

Unfortunately, it seems that this temporary fix has caused all rejected images to be erased (at least temporarily), so screening will not resume as normal until this new problem is remedied, as it would not allow photographers the chance to appeal their rejections. Possibly related, all images that were in the appeal queue have been permanently lost.

You may see small batches of images being added over the next little while as we test out the system to make sure there are no more bugs.

Dana - whilst all this has been going on I have had a further two images rejected, where I have issues with the decision making. Previously I had a rejection which I appealed (as you know) and I now understand from what you say that images has been permanently lost. What about these more recent two? I see one showing normally in the rejection section, but the other is just a default image. So apparently not all rejections have been 'lost'. Is there any likelihood of the 'disappeared' image being restored for subsequent appeal? Will I at least be able to appeal the image I can see in my rejection section eventually?

I've just noticed some of the thumbnails of recently accepted photos are displaying as soft. It only seems to a have effected 3 that I can see at the moment though.
