Banana score, but only 3 comments. Makes me think I may not hold up...
05/23/2007 07:34:41 PM · #52
Ok I am really upset at this site right now. They requested my original picture which pissed me off in the first place. And then when I sent my original they wrote back and told me, the one who took the picture, that I did not send the original and they asked again for me to send the original. The said the size cant be changed or anything, so I went back and downloaded the pocture from my camera once again, the right size and all. Once I tried to upload to the council it wouldn't load, I guess cause the size is too big. So how are they going to tell me to send the original, original size and all but have a size limit on pictures? I don't think that makes any sense, so I am going to be disqualified because the site council doesn't know what they are doing. I am so so so mad right now!

Is it just taking time to upload? I upload 15MB files on validation and it takes them. It does take 3-5 minutes though...

yes but it usually never takes this longs, usually it loads right away so I don't understand. I don't think its fair to DQ me cause of this especially when there is no reason for my picture to be DQ'd.

I'd try it again and give it something crazy like 20 minutes or more. See if it was just the connection. Uploading is much slower than downloading. How big is your file? 5MB?

I would agree with you, but they have been plotting against me for years now, and if I spoke up I'd surely find my bunny boiled in a large pot of water and vegetables.

I blame the love affairs I had with several of the Site Council, which all ended in a bitter breakups.

Well what should I do, I tried writing them but I haven't heard back and I don't want to be DQ'd!
Especially if I don't deserve it!

Well, you have 48 hours to provide it, so you won't get DQd right away. I'd just try again, it sounds like it's working to me but just taking a long time to upload.

Why does this piss you off. it is in the rules that this may happen. it happens to lots of people. no reason to be pissed off.

This is just not nice. this site has been running for years before you came and hundreds if not thousands of photos have been validated before you. perhaps it is you that doesn't know what they are doing!

Check your junk mail. mk answered your second ticketwithin 11 minutes after you submitted (you will recall that I answered your first one within 16 minutes of submission).

edited for clarification

First, calm down. Second, don't start throwing around accusations. I find it astonishing that you would join DPC and decide that, despite several years of things working smoothly, you're the knowledgeable one and the people in charge are clueless. You don't make friends that way, and you don't make it easy for people to reach out to help you.

Third, any time you need to contact the Site Council, you have two options:
1) Go to the help menu in the upper right corner and click "Contact Us" and send them a note. You're not the first person on dialup who's needed to send in an original. BEST OPTION BY FAR.
2) Go to the community menu and choose "who's online" and you'll see the list of SC members who are online over on the left. Send one of them a PM.

Finally, as others have said, a validation request means that someone during voting thinks they saw something in your photo that isn't legal. They don't know who you are; it's not a personal attack. It's just a request so the SC can check what's up.

MOST DQs are for editing mistakes; no one assumes you're a cheater even if you're DQd. I speak from experience; check my recent DPL album cover entry.

Really finally, again, calm down. The SC will help you as much as they can, but not if you start taking their heads off or screaming loudly.

I'm going to say this as gently, politely, and professionally as I can.

Chill out and calm down.

We know exactly what we are doing (and what we would like to do), and we are trying to work with you, but frankly you are making it a bit difficult. If you cannot upload the original with the method given, please respond mk's ticket (response to you) and attach it there. We have uploaded originals larger than yours.

Anita, if you have any further issues with the SC, or this issue in general, please bring them to us and leave them out of the forums, especially when they do not pertain to the thread at hand. Calling names and insulting people does not help your case at all.

NOW, back to the scores.

Where are all the comments?

I have 4 comments on a competitive score. Seems low.

Probably the large number of submissions is more responsible for lower comment tallies than anything else. Obvious, since commenting takes time and there are a lot of submissions that would make sense. But being the first DPL challenge might also be contributing since nobody wants to help the other teams. It will be interesting to see if low comment tallies and lower scores are artifacts of team competition in the future.

Not a competitive score...

...but comments usually aren't all that helpful so I can't see the DPL as being the main cause of lower commenting as much as the challenge subject.
