Susan Vineyard Posted March 7, 2018 Share Posted March 7, 2018 I am fairly new to Alamy. I need to understand the consequences of failing QC. I have 329 images now and never failed until fairly recently. Then I was warned by someone on a FB forum that too many failures can result in permant banning from Alamy. I thought they were consecutive failures, but I had quite a few good uploads and then was failed for uploading a cellphone photo which had been accepted by at least three other agencies. I didn't realize they weren't allowed on Alamy. My account was frozen for 12 days. I have had two good uploads since then, but I currently only have a one star rating. My question is, if I have occasional failures as I learn the ways Alamy is different from other agencies, do I risk being permantely banned? Will I be banned the next time I have a failure (hopefully never, but I didn't anticipate the last two either)? I am putting in a lot of work keywording and optimizing my images on Alamy and I am afraid of putting in that much time and effort if I am risking bannishment. I very much want to work with this agency. I just need to understand the QC system better. What happens if you have multiple nonconsecutive QC failures? Thanks for any advice.
