Default Image Showing On Many Shots In DB

Wed Mar 12, 2014 10:21 pm

Just noticed this. It's happened to all of my recent shots, and the ones in the top 5 for today. Any idea why?

Thanks!

All my pictures accepted after February 7th are no show, and a few more missing here and there between that date and January 31st.

Hi,

Not trying to be mean or personally offend anyone, but it does seem that when the site has some maintenance done on it, said maintenance often creates problems. Some images are now randomly re-appearing for me and some of the latest acceptances appear to be unaffected.

Since it hasn't been brought up but I'm sure someone will experience it sooner than later, but my last few uploads are now showing as default images, rather than the actual photo. De ja vu to a previous bug we had last year.

The reason for the default image appearing is that the images need to index and that is what they're waiting for. They're still working on other issues which have caused an issue with screening though we're not adding any new images until the developers give the all clear.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused the community and thank you for your patience whilst the developers work to resolve the issues.

Thanks and regards

Hello Andre. I too notice that all my queued images appear as default images. However, for those queued on the 9th they actually do open up, and the photo is visible in large format. But when I try to open those uploaded on the 10th they are simply default images.

I'm going to trust that someone will be able to resolve this so that no action is required for contributors. I see in the 'Site Related' thread that Paul says the 'DNS changes need to propogate'. I just Googled that, because I was completely in the dark about that one! 'DNS propogation and why it takes so long - Explained' And it did - you learn something every day.

Hello to all,

thanks for the explanations. I´ve also noticed one of my albums has increased the total pictures on it. Long before I´ve modified the order of some pics without giving enough time to finalize the process due the large amount of images on the album resulting in duplicated images or reducing the total amount once the dupes are relocated. And now suddenly seems to happen that those pictures became active again

¿could the DNS.... be the reason?

Cheers.

We're testing a few at the moment to assist the developers and they seem ok. The developers still have a fair bit more to do but have made good progress and we're awaiting an update.

Any news on what will happen to the "Default Image" thumbnail pictures? Are they going to get fixed or will they all need to be reuploaded?

Apologies for all this hassle.
You will see that some images are now being added but they are mainly Screener images. This is not favouritism but we are still testing and we would be far happier if something goes wrong with our images than with yours.
The other issue is that we are having to search for what we screen rather than simply screening from the top of the pile so some will be screened rather early but it does at least mean that they are being taken out of the queue.

But in your case it was just the thumbnail that was not visible. When you clicked on them you could see them in a large version. One of it was the TK 321 with sharklets taken shortly before sunset, right? Nice shot by the way.

Other recent additions are not visible at any size. So there seem to be differences.


I hope, too that it'll be resolved soon.

I think you are damned if you do, and damned if you don't here Mick. Alll those screeners having the front page and associated viewing figures to themselves won't go down well in some quarters.

Some time off for good behaviour for the screening team at least whilst the mess is addressed.

Paul

P.S. All my queued photos have now reappeared, in all formats, so I'll take that as a good sign that wholescale improvement is on the way now.

There does not appear to be any one type of issue at the moment.

There are accepted images where the thumbnail is default but larger sizes ok.
There are accepted images where thumbnail and all sizes are default.
There are accepted images where thumbnail and all sizes are okay.
There are queued images where the thumbnail is default but larger sizes ok.
There are queued images where thumbnail and all sizes are default.
There are queued images where thumbnail and all sizes are okay.
We have images in the queue that were uploaded in May 2012 that have popped up again. Many of these have been screened out but some are causing issues with the screening interface and although I have tried multiple times I can't get them to load fully so they can be rejected from the queue.

We will keep trying, but ultimately we (the screening team) are waiting on the site developers.

Edit...looks like I jinxed myself. Back up to three.

Hi Chukcha,

There is a script running which is correcting the default images but it will take some time to process everything.

To add we are now once again screening the queue as all the issues the screeners were experiencing appear to be resolved.

Thank you all for your understanding and patience whilst the developers transitioned the servers

Indeed the screening team is probably working hard at the moment. Thanks a lot! As I am pretty sure everybody has other obligations too much respect!

I do have a question: Is the script still running?
Two of my uploads in the queue are still affected.
On the first one just the thumbnails is corrupted, so this should not be a problem I guess.
But the second one is only visible in medium size.

There are problems with the appeals associated with the bugs following the maintenance.
We are very disappointed that these have not yet been resolved but we have been assured that they are being worked on and that the images are saved and are likely to be recovered. Generally appeals are dealt with several times a day but we have not been able to process them for a few days. Having said that, we Heads are all aware and we will process them all as soon as possible.
