I liked Bad Motive better. If you're going to get slapped down, might as well get hit in the mouth by a two by four.

Most of my rejections seem to be "under-sharpening" and "bad cropping".
Maybe time to give it sometime and getting better at shooting and post before trying!? The why is you just have to grow a bunch first and know what works and not.

That was funny in a way, but I know three people who's pictures are no longer on RP because they participated in it.

I was kind of wondering, because I submitted a picture of a Hemingrey insulator that day, not knowing that those kids were doing that.

I concur, as there is no sense in holding back when you're questioning a persons' core motives

I have just gone through this as well. I got banned from Appealing, which is fine. I can understand if they got tired of me appealing something such as a windmill tower train in not excellent sunlight ... I think it would be something worth clicking on, but they do not.

I am an RP Elite member, though, and have been posting to this site for 15 years now. I have 1500 shots on here. I go through periods where I get most chosen and others when I get an unusual number of rejections. I had a string of 5, including a repost of a different version of the aforementioned windmill tower train that I thought might make the cut.

Just now when I tried to upload an entirely different picture, I got this message:
"Your account has been suspended/banned from uploading photos. Please contact administration@railpictures.net for more information."

I'm just shocked by this. I'm in the Top 80 in posted photos, and Top 60 in views. If they're going through the effort of suspending (or, god forbid, truly banning), at least I think I should be warned to what of my behaviors is annoying them.

So this is a current suspension ie 5/14/21 tacked on to this old thread? Maybe give us the link to your photos and link to the rejection so we have a frame of reference.

Interesting how many people in this old thread are either no longer on forum or site and I see one who was eventually banned.

Anyway I am on a 31 day self imposed exile till the rejection list clears and hopefully any bad mojo goes away. I possibly have been close to banning? but have pivoted to being polite on resubmits, submitting "sure" photos now and then and taking time off as there is plenty of other stuff to do like tennis, bike riding etc etc.

There might be more to this than just a few rejections but it doesn't seem to be a very nice way of dealing with Elite members who are subscribers that have helped keep this site running when advertising income went "down the toilet" with the COVID hit.
