Yikes, I've got 5 stars too! And now I've thrown my shoulder out patting myself on the back. We 5-star wonders must be getting an automatic pass from QC? 

 

😀😀😎😀🙂

I'm getting all jealous now.

Sorry to disappoint, but that's one star. My three are all black.

 

I know it is one star Mark. I was replying to the posts which say they see five stars.

 

Still I don't mind only having one star. It is better than none.😃

 😲😫😔😖☹️😳😵🥵😵  So that is why I am still a one star general. Last upload failed. Still 9 days left to upload again.

 

Pity because I had a good image in that upload to do with the upcoming general election. (Aside:- Is that when they elect new generals?) In 9 days time it won't be worth uploading it.

 

The sodding image that failed was not worth uploading anyway and has been removed entirely from my system.

Hah! Likewise. Still 24 hours though. Better put some up.

Whizzer! 

I had to go back to the Filezilla log to check I hadn't put them through archival by accident but no- less than 4 minutes. Ed's right- we're going straight through.

I noticed I'd got a five star rating yesterday. I just (8pm) uploaded a submission and it passed INSTANTLY. As soon as I clicked Finish upload, the screen refreshed and said Congratulations you've passed QC. There were no other submissions in the queue for me, so it hasn't "piggy backed" on an earlier submission. Looks like 5 star QC ratings may come with privileges (= bypass QC), or is it just an Alamy "glitch"?

 

Mmm.... now I've got more keywording to do than I expected...

I notice that I'm now a five-star general as well. Same experience as yours today. No rest for the wicked, I guess. B)

It makes total sense to give a quick pass to contributors who are constantly submitting images that have been passing QC. After all, there are bound to be some images on Alamy with flaws . . . since they have never had a policy of checking every single image. 

 

It is a pleasent shocker though. Remember when we had to mail images in on a disk?

Yes, it was an expected but welcome surprise, plus it does make sense. However, I imagine that with the promotion comes additional risks and responsibilities. It will probably be quite easy to get demoted to a one-star general if one fails in one's duties. I do remember the days of the disks. My first submissions were on DVD's, maybe even a CD for the first one.

If this frees up some QC inspectors, maybe they can start looking at keywording quality instead??
