I'm curious.  Does anyone have four stars, or is it either three or five? 

Assuming all existing ratings went from 3 to 5 possible stars, I would imagine they have been regraded as follows:
old 1 = new 1

old 2 = new 3

old 3 = new 5

So possibly the 2's and 4's will begin to appear as things change going forwards?

Still 3 stars for me, would be great to know what you had to do for 5 stars but can't complain at 24 hours.

A bit like my excellent one star!

...and after 300+ submissions without even a single fail, my last one is still in QC for more than 24 hours for the first time.

I don't mind having 3 stars as long as I get my submissions go through the next day after the upload...

Maybe QC had a Christmas party yesterday? Merry Christmas, QC people.

I'm not worried about the 3 stars. Just looked back, since that rare QC fail last summer, I've uploaded over 200 images in 16 batches and they all went through overnight, so not concerned.

I've now got 5 (Gold) stars and I passed QC today with 10 images in a few minutes - on a Sunday. Didn't use Reportage or News upload.

Very puzzling. Merry Christmas! :)

Just got an email from Alamy saying response times from QC will be slower over Christmas. I tried an upload (1 image) and checked it, 3 minutes later. It had passed. Go figure!

I have only just picked up on this so thanks for the heads up. Having checked I see two new lovely stars have appeared without my noticing and I now have 5 stars 😲. I have had no fails for over a year - some 30 submissions with almost 600 images in that time.

 

Have Alamy decided to allow self regulation (probably with just the odd check-up) for past good conduct for those of us trying to keep a good record hence the modificationn of the star system.

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

I presume they mean anything that requires human attention

Alamy'll be no different to most businesses that regard Christmas as running from around the twenty-third to first week January, although the seventh does seem a little excessive

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!

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)....
