How much time do contributors have to spend in the sin bin these days before being able to upload images again? :huh:

I only had one fail since I started - it was about August last year and it was for "underexposed" (I liked the way the picture looked done like that) and I did not get any time in the sin bin - I went back through the lot I had uploaded, pulled a couple more, and resubmitted and they passed.

Uh-oh. It has been a few years for me. Hopefully, there has been some prison reform since then.

I want my old cell back. I miss the morning gruel. What was that slim sauce they used?

First time in ages for you. I think they tore the old one down and built new to look old.  I took a tour to familiarize myself just in case. The kitchen is on the other end from where it first was and I’m not sure I could bake there. I don’t like the oven.

No problem, the cells are all "exclusive" now. I never got any sauce on my gruel. :(

That gruel sauce is nasty but at the same time tasty. I tried to push a guard into the oven. I hope it wasn't one of your cakes he landed on, Betty.

Last week a send a batch of 10 images. Specifically, one image "A cowboy riding a horse, in-camera motion blur effect, panning". That image Failed QC *Soft or lacking definition. As normal, the batch submission failed.<_< 

 

But, I was able to upload new images with a few hours more than normal (comparing with when QC passed).

The last time my QC failed (technical reason) was year ago.

Glad to hear that the Sin Bin has apparently been abolished. I always thought the 30-day lock-up was unnecessary.  But that's an old conversation...

Probably also depending on your amount of QC ranking stars.

Yes, probably the "3 stars" saved my time in the sin bin.

The last time I ended up in the sin bin, I had time to spend with my family.  They seem like nice people :D

I think that somewhere along the line I earned a short stay in the greybar hotel. I much prefer this new method of one of the staff popping round and giving you a kidney punch, instead. Once the liquid turns back from red to yellow, usually 2 to 3 days, one is all set again.

I believe you are correct, Kevin and Andre. My 3-star rating has saved me (and who else are they gonna get to eat and shoot all those strange tapas dishes?).

 

A tip to you forum folk. Don't snap pictures of Spanish Water Dogs. Their fur looks unsharp even when it's sharp.

Ahhhh. The dreaded black fur. I had a friend who found a new home for a black dog that was barking too much to live in an apartment. He only had her for a brief time and took one picture. She was lying on his black bathroom rug and all we could see was two brown eyes.

One star rating gets 10 days.

 

Just as a matter of interest I have always been a one star even after a long good run of passes.

 

Unfortunately had two fails this year which I put down to problems at home and not paying enough attention to uploads, of which there are few.

 

My bad trying to be good to others.

Being stuck on one star seems weird - as a newbie I had 3 accepted, then upload rejected without time in the sin bin, then another couple of uploads and I was 3 star - and I do not claim to be wonderful at this - maybe workmanlike acceptable.  I would maybe ask if you have got left behind or something as it seems like these days getting to 3 stars is almost easy.

You're 3 stars on my list, Allan.

I don't think you can have zero stars, so the upside of  being a one-star general is that you can only get promoted, not demoted. 🤓
