Alamy QC - changed wording?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is correct but has the rubric in AIM changed lately - it now reads "usually within 24 hours"?

 

Can't recall seeing the "usually" in the past but quite possibly I haven't noticed it.

 

Message brought about by anxiety over an unusually long period in QC - could be I'm doomed, doomed....

I must admit I haven't noticed a change but I've been a bit longer than usual in QC at the moment.

What worries me about my latest submission is that a bunch of shots were taken on a hot day last weekend at Cromer on the cliff top. There were swarms of flies which appeared just like dust spots on my images - I know what they were but, with QC in mind, I spent a considerable amount of time erasing them. I'm now wondering if I missed one or two. They could easily be mistaken for dust spots. Time will tell!

Jim ;)

I think it's new yes. I wouldn't worry Bryan, QC has been slower than usual this week after the long weekend. I've been impacted too.

Definitely new wording, which is better. I usually pass QC too within 24 hours. It’s now been nearly 48. I expect it will happen later today though.

Perhaps when the backlog is cleared the "usually" will disappear.:)

It only takes a round of sickness or another bank holiday later in May to create a new backlog!

Not sure if "usually" is new or not, but it seems to be a slower than usual month all round (for me anyway) with only one sale showing so far for May and fewer zooms than usual. I was going to upload a batch yesterday, but a little bird told me to wait until next week. Highly unusual.

Mine are through QC now, term "usually" still in AIM.  A weekend of tagging ahead.

 

This is a great months so far.

I received the approval email 5 minutes after I posted this.  Still twice as long as normal though.

I have just passed but am having trouble logging in to Alamy again. I guess I will have to (yet again) delete my history in Safari or use Firefox.

They are days on which everyone else has come to their senses as well.
