Hyperfast QC and Increased Rating? UPDATED

Recommended Posts

I uploaded 10 shots 30 minutes ago and they've just passed QC. Incredibly fast considering I didn't use reportage or Alamy News upload routes (I have reportage, not news). I've also noticed that my QC rating is now 5*, when (I think) the maximum was previously 3*. Those better informed are welcome to enlighten me.

Happy Christmas!

Steve, guessing you have not seen this thread?

Thanks Phil; no I hadn't seen it, although I did look for something in the QC thread before posting. I had a browse and there's no real explanation of what's changed, and it doesn't explain why I passed in minutes on a Sunday (there hasn't ever been QC at the weekend before). I wonder if the 5* rating (which was only 3* max previously, is connected. Or maybe QC is on holiday!

Is this perhaps a sign that Alamy are now using software for QC rather than humans (at least for contributors with a high rating)?

Could be Alan, but wouldn't you think they'd just tell us?

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!
