Betty LaRue Posted November 12, 2015 Share Posted November 12, 2015 Through the years, I have read time after time to upload a batch, then wait for it to be QC approved before uploading another. I can see the value in that advice for someone having a lot of failures, since you waste time uploading subsequent batched that will fail along with the batch with the failure. But really, it's only a matter of hitting an upload button and walking away until the deed is done, so how much time is lost? Nearly none. I have always followed the above advice. The trouble with that is if it takes 2 days for an upload to be QC'd, you lose that day in between. Upload on Monday, get approved on Wednesday, upload next batch on Wednesday, get approved on Friday. 5 day work week, two batches approved. If you upload on Monday and Tuesday, both uploads will presumably be QC'd on the Monday upload timetable. So you get two uploads approved on Wednesday. Upload again on Wednesday, then on Thursday, and you get both QC'd on Friday. 5 day work week, 4 uploads approved. If one fails, then one is going to spend a month in the Sin Bin whether the failed image is in the first batch or the second. You wait your time, get rid of the failure, inspect everything carefully again. Put images in those two batches into one batch and upload again. Big deal, I see no problem with that. People who routinely get QC approval in 24 hours or less, no problem with the one batch at a time. I had a couple of uploads like that recently. Now I seem to be on the two-day train again. I uploaded a batch yesterday, then just did another a few minutes ago. I'll see how it goes. And I do understand the advice is good for new contributors. I've read some of those threads in the past where somebody had multiple batches fail and ranted and raved because they think only the offending batch should fail. Somebody uploading hundreds of images within a few days and many batches, I can see their frustration, and also see why they need to go down the cautious road. What do you do??
