  1. Mine too. I wouldn't surprised if that was one of the reasons for the culling of news contributors, with uploads needing to be 110% accurate with the images available for immediate download.
  2. I've only now noticed it because of a rare delay, but the database update has also been more reliable of late enabling images to be live extremely quickly. Hopefully somebody is working today to flick that switch as I have a number of election night overflow images waiting to go on sale. They threw us out of our local elections not long after the results were announced so I didn't upload too many on the night.
  3. Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Single Company - Multiple editorial use only Up to 1/2 Page. Single Company - Multiple editorial use only ; Industry Sector: Media, design & publishing ; Start: 13-December-2019 ; End: 13-December-2021
  4. First sale since the fourth, and for not a lot. December has thus far reminded me not to take sales for granted after some high scoring months.
  5. Mine have gone straight through this evening. I've noticed a few hang as processing, although showing as accepted. I just had to wait a while and refresh for the images to appear.
  6. Unless I've missed it I'm surprised that Alamy haven't highlighted the importance of self-regulated quality control to ensure this new power isn't abused.
  7. The last time I had contact with them during live on-going events in London they couldn't take incoming calls. Not a great arrangement
  8. I've just uploaded a couple of high ISO images which went straight through. I'm happy with the quality otherwise I wouldn't have sent them, but just to point out that high ISO doesn't trigger automatic queuing.
  9. Country: United Kingdom ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic ; Print run: up to 10,000 ; Placement: Inside ; Start: 01-November-2019 ; End: 01-November-2024 ; Additional Details: Print and Online, up to 5,000, UK only, fortnightly Low $$
  10. Maybe someone could volunteer to upload an obvious fail..... 😈
  11. Not if there is indeed some kind of auto QCing going on. They could still fail, presumably.
  12. Mine have gone straight through again. Would any of your images have anything about them which any auto software may have flagged as requiring human intervention? High ISO or motion blur or suchlike?
  13. Likewise, I have three waiting. Don't tell anyone but I'm thinking off re-uploading them now 😎
