Default Screener disappearance

I'm not complaining or pressuring anyone, but...

Has anyone noticed the screeners have been offline for extended amounts of time lately? Seems to take a lot longer for someone to screen a photo lately than 5-6 months ago. Maybe I just have no life???

I'm an irregular uploader at best, but as it happens I have uploaded 7 over the last week, at various times of day and days of week, and have not experienced any unusual delays.

He's right. I uploaded one the other morning around 8am and by mid-afternoon it was still a bit down in the queue. Usually any early morning submission is screened within an hour or two.

They are probably just busy with more important stuff.

Wink Screen Time.

I haven't noticed anything different except on weekends, you can get a
150 image que count, especially on Sunday night.

I heard Jet photos takes a week or so for something to get reviewed.

I'm just an irregular (!) uploader as well. I might send up a dozen shots on one day, and then nothing for a couple of weeks. It depends on whether or not I've shot or scanned anything of interest, and if I have time to do it. The response time is always very quick, given the fact they all have real lives. I don't time them; I may not check back until I get an e-mail notice that shots have been accepted and/or rejected.

The last shot I submitted over there back in October took 17 days to be screened. And as a side note, it was an "Instant Add" meaning the first screener that saw it accepted it. Typically it's at least a two-screener operation there to have your photo screened, so who knows how much more time would have been added had it gone the normal two-screener route!

17 days is a bit too long to wait for an ordinary shot, which is why my aviation stuff now goes up on Flickr.

But here's the result after waiting 2-plus weeks:

I have a photo there now with just over 10,000 in front of it after being in the queue for a few days.

I submitted a photo to Jet Photo in 1967. It's coming up for review in early 2015.

There's a screener on my milk carton.

The only jets I see in Big Stone Gap, VA are 30,000 feet above me. That's too far even for my 300mm lens, so I don't post to Jet Photos.

But RedneckPhotos.net? Well...that's another matter.

Looking at Jetphotos I think percentage wise, there are many more wedgie airplane photos. They also like to crop very, very tightly.

That's interesting. I have no idea what constitutes "proper" airplane photography. I'm sure those guys have their own idiosyncrasies and quirks, same as most railfan photographers. I might shoot something I thought looked fine, upload it there, and then get blasted for being a moron. Oh....wait...no, that's at RP.net. Sorry.

I did have one of the Goodyear Blimp on the ground here in Carson in which I included other elements. Got dinged for cropping a couple times. Went tighter and tighter until it got dinged for quality (too tight)... but I think that is the plane photography rule... nothing but plane.

I say this, speaking from my own rear-quarters, as I honestly don't really know much about it beyond what I've seen on that site.

It sounds like JetPhotos is more of a "roster" shot site, vs. a site for art or scenics.

Oh, there is definitely "art" in the photo I linked above.
On a tree by a river a little tom-tit
Sang "Willow, titwillow, titwillow!"
And I said to him, "Dicky-bird, why do you sit
Singing Willow, titwillow, titwillow'?"
"Is it weakness of intellect, birdie?" I cried,
"Or a rather tough worm in your little inside?"
With a shake of his poor little head, he replied,
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!"

The other thread is the answer - Ben Earp cloned the screener out!

I get off work at 10PM and when I go to upload something the queue is always less than 20. It was only 8 when I just looked a moment ago.

So if it is applicable to your schedule I would suggest putting up things in the late evening hours.

Maybe you should take a step back and look at the topic you started. What did you expect?

Talking A Blimp is not a Plane.

Well, as an update - My photos are getting rejected in a timely manner, just like usual.

So I would say the process is proceeding normally.

I think he was finding the humor in it. But I could be wrong...
