    That was the stupidest thing I've ever made here:

    Was uploading a picture that a really like, but there was plenty differences between the histogram on Photoshop and here on JP queue tools, so I uploaded it something like 3 or 4 times, checked, removed from the queue and uploaded again an improved version.

    I was sending comments to screener, just copy and paste so I don't need to type all again every time. But the last time I paste in the field "hot photo?", not in the right field "comments to screener". Right after upload I went to my queued photos to check the photo and SURPRISE!!! Less than 5 second after upload it was already in screening.

    Correctly rejected by invalid hot.

    Just want to ask for any crew member.. Is it possible the get my slot back?
    I swear it was by mistake, you can see that what I typed on hot photo field is clearly a commet to the screener regarding the photo post processing. Very sad to lose a slot like this!
    Photographer ID 34872

    Plus, can't implement a double check? Just like when submit the photo the site asks "are you sure you want to upload as hot photo"? I remember in the past there was a verification box to check if it was hot, not only the reason.

    Yes, but they were rejected for other reasons. We don't reject for missing/wrong category or genre alone.

    Before this photo being accepted, I managed to get a rejection by horizon unlevel. Like there was nothing vertical do use as reference

    I also was capable of getting a rejection by similar photo in queue, I didn't notice that I was selecting/editing/uploading 2 photos of the same side of the same airplane

    This one would be so many stupid, but thanks to the screeners wasn't:

    I get a photo rejected by 3 reasons, one of them was "bad info: genre" I didn't understand but also didn't care, as it was rejected by backlit, would not be accepted at all

    Then I have 10 accepeted photos, and in two of them, from different days, had the following comments:

    "Genre corrected to Civil"
    "Genre changed from MIL to CIV for you! Regards and stay safe JS"


    Then I though "there is something wrong here". I went to the queue and ALL the pictures was set the genre as military, because it was checked by standart after I changed the genre to upload a (rejected) photo of a KC390.

    So, thank you very much to the screeners for don't reject that pictures! I can't imagine how sad would be to lost 10 slots!

    tbh, this happens ALL the time (with categories) too. So much so that I don't even bother to leave a message saying that it has been corrected since that would take up too much time. I'd guess I make 10-20 such corrections every day. 10x means the whole crew does this probably 100s of times a day.

    I don't like panning, but every now and then ... I get ready for the shots. Multi-shot 1/60 sec. f22. Shooting, shooting ... ok. They suck but not bad, it's the end of the day. I put the camera away and go home. A few days later on FR24, there is a Ryanair B737 new Maltese recordings. Run run, to try to catch the take off. I'll make it, get on the terrace and clak, clak clak. I'm satisfied, another cockade on jetphotos. Control ... it's all white. Lesson: When you're done shooting, always double-check your settings.
    Sorry for my bad english.

    Some time ago I took photo of small aircraft Aeroprakt with new registration. And I did 10 tries and got 10 rejects because of contrast )) Even now I don't know what was wrong. But after that fail I do not try to reupload one pic more than twice.

    A few years ago, I heard a loud sound at the airport. Looked up and saw a DC-9 climbing away with its majestic smoke trail behind; grabbed the camera and snapped "a whole bunch of pics", only for it to say card not in camera. Left it in the PC, Yikes. Guys and Gals, please don't make the same mistake I made!

I had my 10-18 lens on at the time to get some good wide shots with the wing and engine framing DFW. There was a point where I was wondering why it wouldn't focus as well. Still got some good in focus shots, but somehow it got switched off of autofocus and to manual. Figured that out while we turned to join downwind for 17C. Oh well.
    Had a moment yesterday, too. I brought my camera to work because a B-52 did a flyover for the hospital. I work a couple miles away, but within reach of my 100-400. It wasn't until afterwards I was looking through my pictures and realized my shutter speed was up around 1/4000 and 1/5000. Beautifully clear day, so there was no need for that fast. Turns out my ISO was still bumped up to 800 from shooting some contrails the evening before. No good shots for here because of the distance, but still cool to see and experience a B-52 flying by! I usually reset my settings when I'm done shooting. For whatever reason I didn't the other evening. Oh well.
    Live and learn!
    My dad told me today there was a B-52 flying around Spokane, and I while rare nowadays I didn't think too much of it because they were based here at Fairchild AFB like 25 years ago plus until it became a KC-135 base mostly, but it wasn't unusual to see them when I was a kid in the late 90s and early 2000s even since they still stopped here sometimes and I have heard many a story from my parents and experienced the house rattling because of their engines. So I figured it was a routine stop today but perhaps they are here for the same reason! The Veterans Hospital in fact is the one closest to where I live, plus we have 2 large hospitals and a decent sized one besides that. I did not see or hear it sadly but I will keep an eye out for it.

    So when I edit my pictures I usually have 2 edits with 3 exports:

    Edit 1: Edit for JP, exported to 1280 long side
    Edit 2: I take the JP edit and clone out things like bits of fences etc that distract from the final image, and I export that at 1280 long side for facebook/instagram
    Edit 3, same as edit 2 but exported at full resolution for my website

    I then place each export in its respective folder: JetPhotos for uploads to JetPhotos, IG/FB for instagram and facebook, and Website for my website

    Well, apparently I somehow managed to put my IG/FB versions in both my IG/FB folder AND my JetPhotos folder, meaning I uploaded to the queue several pictures that had things cloned out which is a big NO NO on JetPhotos lol

    Result: I got 6 pictures rejected for photo manipulation, lowered my accept ratio to only 90.63%, lost 6 upload slots for something stupid I did, and I got a warning that my account will be marked and if this happens again there will be bad consequences!!!

    Lesson learned: Double check, TRIPLE check that I am uploading the correct file (I don't know how I missed it on the upload while reviewing the pictures after they were uploaded) and maybe most importantly don't move exported pictures in their respective folders when you've been awake 20+ hours LOL!!!
    Actually, it wasn't just the most recent batch of uploads you seem to have done this. Some from your previous batch (January) that were accepted were also found to have such manipulation, and were deleted from the DB. As long as you've got your folders sorted out this shouldn't be an issue going forward, but if it were to happen again, yes, you could face the removal of upload slots.
