    I a bit confused as to what you found ambiguous in Will's answer Oliver? Perhaps he wasn't clear enough as you uploaded it as 'hot' anyway.

      I also wonder what is so special about "Glacier Girl" flying in England. Sure it is a nice historic sidenote, but surely not ticker worthy hot.

        I dont see why the rules should be one for commercial and another for the warbirds/vintage.

              Quoting Omar....

              We have many uploaders who try to fool us with the reasons why their photo should be hot.
              Are people really that sad ?

              Jesus H, its a hobby, not a deadline breaking, mega-bucks paying, hold the front page, I'll die if I don't get it in NOW, situation.

              To quote Omar again...

              But I do also think that it's not too hard to wait 2-3 days to have your pics online, at JP we really work like hell to keep the queue low so you don't have to wait 7-10 days (cough cough) to get your pics screened (no I didn't say rejected !! )
              Nasty cough there Omar ? caused by an allergy to vegetables perchance, especially "Swedes".

              If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

                I have a question regarding hot uploads, I uploaded a shot of Jet Airways first arrival into EWR today as hot and it was rejected. SO why was this an ok hot when it departed Brussles? http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.p...6031433&nseq=4

                  What did you put as the reason for being HOT ??

                  "first flight into Newark" wouldn't count yet "Inaugural flight" would......

                    Does a new interior count?
                    For example the first pictures of the New Bizz class, and first class product for an airline?

                          I uploaded 3 photos, 2 of CX new first class, and 1 one CX new business class.
                          I uploaded them as hot because AJ said that it was.
                          They were accepted but not as hot. Im not trying to get hits or anything im just wondering for future refference if all screeners have to agree that it is hot or not?

                          Cheers
                          Neil.

                            If you uploaded them as hot and they were not rejected, then they were accpeted as hot. But they were not seen as ticker worthy.

But let's say, the first A380 in Emirates colors (just as an example) should meet the minimum quality standards, simply, because we know, we will be flood by a gazillion of top shots, so why accept a bad photo first?

                                Hmmm.... I would like to bring the attention to this picture, uploaded by a friend. He put it in the hot qeue. It's a new paint scheme, but according to the statement quoted above, why would it get accepted? Now I'm not a screener, but a few things come to mind: Foreground clutter, underexposed, aircraft cut off, obstructions, horizon unlevel and aircraft not centered.

                                Here's the pic: http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.p...6024644&nseq=0

                                I'm pretty sure we'll see a gazillion of SQ Cargo in the new paint scheme as well, so why accept a bad photo first?

                                I'm not gonna go into the discussion about what makes for a hot photo or not, but I would like to make a sugestion. Since it seems that some people use the hot qeue to - for lack of better words - jump the regular qeue, would it be an idea to make a new rejection category? The picture itself could be accepted based on the overall quality, but still be rejected because it does not qualify for a hot photo. Of course, a photo that is rejected for that reason, will still be eligible for upload in the normal qeue. Maybe that would inspire people to be more "selective" about what they put in the hot qeue. It's a bit annoying when you see pictures from certain places be accepted 2-3 days before yours even though they are ordinary pictures, taken on the same day.

                                Anyway, just a thougt. Now I'm ready for the pounding from you guys.
                                If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough!
