Here's my last image submission:

Uploaded - confirmation message says - April 7th 2:22PM, approved April 15th 7:32PM  file number 134286410 8 days

How's that fit  with your latest submits and review? This could be interesting. RF only, no Editorial no illustrations. Enter a submit date and time, review date and time and file number. We can see if the FIFO is real or hypothetical.

Anyone with an un-reviewed RF photo file with a LOWER file number?


I think I need to make some sense of this so people can see any patterns? RF PHOTO'S Only, no vectors, video or Editorial.

An old computer acronym: First In, First Out.   Essentially means first come, first served.

actually in my part of the world, with the mining boom, it also means Fly In Fly Out.

Also before computers for inventory management so things don't go stale on the shelf. GIGO is 100% computer though?  :)

So far the numbers are in order. I didn't notice how long mine took, until someone asked. Usually I upload and forget. I don't think SS is sitting on the edge of their chair waiting for more new photos from me to come in, so they can quickly review them. I honestly believe the only people with a sense of urgency are the artists?

Corrected the dates, because I entered the wrong month. (DUMB!)

Same files uploaded same day to IS, still pending. Just in case that matters to anyone.

A load unreviewed with #1333....... from the start of the month. RF only, no editorial, no vectors. Only a re-submission in the queue but that's from a few days ago.

Time to drop them a mail, methinks. OTOH don't want to jinx anything. Had a BDE in dl's yesterday (27) which surprised me considering my port is 150.

So, there are others waiting longer than me. What are the factors determining the fast review vs the slow review? Is it geographical location (I'm in NL/Europe)? Have contributors been 'tiered' based on past review performance (those with, say >80% acceptance go to the head of the queue)? Or is it portfolio size? Or is it completely random? Any ideas cos it ain't FIFO?

Hey try this, I did. Upload a file.  :)  (poor excuse for a bump to the thread because I revised the first message to timeline and image numbers)

What's interesting is that except for yours that are somewhere in a black hole, all the people who answered, follow right along with FIFO. I wish I had more accurate data for tracking?

Sorry to hear that yours somehow got side tracked.

so, despite the complaining, no one can yet show that others are jumping the queue?

(according to the few examples quoted here)
I'd be one of those who don't pop in to say "all good", although it tends to get -ve votes when someone does.
Sure, review times are a touch longer than what they were, but DT and that other big one are also long.

Edit: see, someone gave me a -ve for this comment!!

No one wants to have SS mad at them for outing issues.

You might have a better response if the questions were in the form of a detailed poll and the image numbers and dates were not visible.  Something more detailed than the polls on this site.
