Trying to submit and I'm getting all kinds of new warning boxes, like my description matches my title, or it isn't long enough, or "Congratulations" on my unique title, and it seems to be taking my description and adding those words to my keywords...

I've gotten boxes about my descriptions being too shoot, or less than 5 keywords, but it seemed to be doing more today.

I believe that's SOP at DT these days.

They want your "description" to be somehow different from your "title", which can be a nuisance, and yes they pull out odds and ends (little words like the, of, etc) and add them to your keywords.

Then they literally jump through hoops of joy when you come up with a "unique" title whoopin' and hollerin' that you're the only one in the whole wide world who has ever come up with such a fabulous, amazing title!!!!!

Whatever makes them happy is OK, I guess.

But DT does seem to be selling more of my pics these days, and with that extra 10% added on, I'm happy too! :D

The idiot messages about having a unique title or other "inspirational" messages were new to me at the end of May (I did a catch-up upload then). Most of them could just be ignored (but I would have liked the option to turn them off).

I think there were one or two problems where they weren't happy about a description & I added some filler to shut them up, but out of 500 or so uploads, I wasn't too miffed

I did fix a couple of their guesses at categories where they were crazy, but for the most part just ignored that as I don't think Categories matter.

Overall, it was pretty quick and the model/property release stuff was simple to add.

But to answer your question, everyone gets the annoying interface - you didn't do anything to upset them :)

You can turn the automatic keywording (where it pulls text from the description) off in the tabs above the image but this has to be done at the start of every edit session as it defaults to on. Its uselessness is compounded by keywords only being single words so, for example, queen of hearts in your metadata keywords is split into three words which are not even stored consecutively.

I've always had those and adding words in description to keywords. You have to change the title or description the rest I ignore.
