it always was self regulation.  They have just adjusted the QC process to be linked to some other variables.  The higher the ranking, the higher the contributor's credibility 


Then there are a lot of silly contributors; choosing to fail their own images, after upload.

I was surprised to see my submission sail thru QC super fast, even during the holiday period.  I uploaded last night and they had cleared this morning!  Nice!

All I can figure is that the speedy QC and five star rating for those lucky enough to have them is due to the over abundance of Christmas Eggnog!

My supersonic  Q.C. rating seems to be grounded. One upload from friday and two from yesterday are still waiting, were they normally fly through.

Same.  Uploaded 31 from my London trip on Friday evening - sailed through instantly.  Uploaded 3 last night and they're still in QC.  Go figure...

 

Edit: Just passed now.

from experience so far, once you get one image in the QC process all following ones will be held also, until you get through. I'm also in the Queue for my third time, Actually glad to see the random QC can happen at any time not predictable like my first 2 (since predictable = abusable)....

Am wondering, I have a lowly 3 stars and there's no greyed out 2 stars.  Assuming live news goes through straight away - confused.com😀

 

Just uploaded a batch hoping they will clear tomorrow anyway...

Just tried another (single) image. Passed QC in approximately 20 seconds! So far, I've not had random wait times since I got 5 stars.

I doubt there will be any greyed out stars. Previously, it was only ever 3 stars, then jumped to 5. Live News should go through immediately, otherwise, it would be yesterday's news. :)

Just this minute (well, hour) back from NZ with 1554 images so this will come in handy..

Also gained a granddaughter (honorary status) as well. Sorry but I think I was bound to boast about that.

second week in a row to hit the random QC on Friday night.  so likely no review until Monday, and not on sale until Tuesday

I have 4 pics waiting inspection over the weekend. Hopefully things are not extra rigorous under the new regime, but they are low ISO shots taken in bright sunlight so should be OK. No hurry actually, rate of upload pretty sluggish at this time of year.

I had 24 images uploaded on Friday early evening waiting in the QC queue over the weekend. They all cleared this morning first thing. I'm 5 stars.

 

I've had 8 or 9 submissions go through in seconds before that. 

 

Presume they do a check every now and then, or is it just a Friday afternoon/evening thing I wonder?

Interesting that there are 2 stars and 4 star ratings. I hadn't heard of anybody with those before.

It's very interesting in that it's the first official public acknowledgement of any change to the QC ratings. It's the standard page but they've updated the QC rating section and they've done it very recently, though the page isn't dated. As was noted in the other thread, there is no mention of how they are rolling it out and why some users on this forum with impeccable uploading records don't have 5 stars yet.

Right, you mean in the page source? I can't see it on the page itself, but yes, modified on Friday.

Just sent 8 images and they went straight through.

 

I'll have to avoid Friday afternoons!

Quite so, I do look at the page source to identify website providers when I like the site but I must say I hadn't thought of looking for a modify date, it's a useful tip.
