    Shouldn't emails and private messages be considered as private and confidential?

    Nobody has been identified, so I don't see the problem. Besides, frankly if people are stupid enough to write some of this stuff I think they deserve to be made examples of. It might prompt them to get their arse in gear and learn how to use a camera instead of insulting volunteers who are simply doing their job.

    What he says! Besides, some of those comments are too funny to be read just by one admin or senior

    Just because 'some' can't see them on their monitors doesn't mean they are not visible Daryl.

    I think that this is a good point, dirty scan can only be visible on some pics when u up the contrast to 100%, who looks at pics like that? Homeland security?

    To be honest I find (and i dont have a problem with this) that photos get rejected simply because they are not good enough, not because of softness or colours, but cos its boring or crap. There should be a reason called "Not good enough" or "Not to JP standard".

    First off all there is a huge difference between a fully calibrated monitor and a not calibrated one. Secondly we often click scan/cmos as an advice, wheen there is another major error and a barely noticeable dust spot.
    Finally we do not reject fpr boring and it never play part in screening.

    Considering how many side-on and "boring" shots (not to be harsh, I upload them too ) pictures are accepted everyday, that's obviously not the case. Though measures like that are taken at the blue site.

    yes but the others are on the extreme opposite now, accepting blurry cut-off dark pictures. At least they do if another screener is the photog.

    back on topic, "boring" can`t be applied in aviation photography. Yes, for many a side-on of an AA MD80 is not that appealing, having seen thousands of similar shots, yet some people actually prefer these kind of shots that the more "complex" ones, since the side-on is the best when you want to keep a data-base approach. And they always recieve a few hundred hits, so there is always a crowd for these shots

    Example?

    "Boring" is just a matter of personal opinion, not something that the screeners use to determine a pictures worthiness of a spot in the database. Some shots appeal or don't appeal to certain people.

    Care to elaborate on that?

    All screeners [here on JP] undergo the same screening procedure as any other uploader and if anything are judged harder as the screeing team should be setting an example.

    Jordan hit the nail on the head (surprisingly ).

    There are plenty of fleet spotters all over the world who don't consider a photo worthy of viewing unless it's, for lack of a better term, a "roster shot." This term comes from the railroad photography realm, and it basically means "a side on photo taken from a non-extreme angle in good light."

    Is that my particular cup of tea? Not at all. I'd much prefer to see an artistically composed photo showing an interesting setting or background, even where the plane is part of a much bigger picture. We realize that everyone has different tastes, however, so as long as an image meets our very transparent quality and composition criteria, it's accepted.

    I try to screen every photo as objectively as humanly possible, even if it's not my "preferred" style of photo, and I know the rest of the team does as well.

    I know that some of the recently controversial accepted pictures on the other site have been accepted because of the name of the photographer. No need to say who, but on a few threads over there it's pretty clear. They even admitted it

    In any case, just to clarify, I also agreed in my previous post that "boring" can't be applied to photography, and in aviation especially

    Both sites work completely different, I think that's pretty evident by just browsing the forums here. You won't get banned here for mentioning 'the other site' where as you may be on a.net. You won't get jumped on by the grammar Police (mind you, theres some odd people ) - Theres plenty of screeners on here who get rejections, just like everybody else. I am obviously lieing though. Beer and money is the way to get bad pictures accepted.

    Oh, I am well aware of that, and I never implied that. I hope that's not how it came out because it was not my intention. And if it did, I appologize

    hope its clear
