This is a little request to the Armada 2 Files Staff or a Network Administrator to please remove each and every one of my POTD's from the moderating queue. I'll have a think about my files on there.

Thankyou.

As per your request the four pictures you had in the que have been removed.

Now, other than you wanting me to, why did I I just delete four of the best POTD's in the que?

:ditto: Any may I ask why you are thinking about your files? If this in regards to that issue over at Battleclinic, then I can assure you, we are better than them, and don't upload without permission. If we do so accidentally, then that file is removed upon request (and we can be contacted easily).

Now, other than you wanting me to, why did I I just delete four of the best POTD's in the que?[/quote] Thankyou, the reason for this is many of the pictures you validate are by the same author over and over, which makes me think you dont need my pictures in the queue. I uploaded alot of my pictures a while back and it said, when i uploaded them, that there were 31 pictures waiting to be validated, but i still havent seen my ones go up and it has been more than 31.

If you dont mind me asking, how many members actually upload POTD's, because that might be why you are validating pictures that are made by the same member over and over. There is rarely any done by anyone else.

Yes, that is the case. The Piranha Class i uploaded to you was one of my ships that got converted. If i had'nt of uploaded it to the Filefront Network, it wouldnt have been stolen. As my work is getting better, IMO, i wouldnt want people to take advantage of it and start porting things to Legacy or SFC.

Just for the record: I do not give any permission for anything of mine to be ported. And you may say, you havent done much, whilst that statement is incorrect, i still have made many models which are yet to go up, if ever.

Gavin1701;3517113Thankyou, the reason for this is many of the pictures you validate are by the same author over and over, which makes me think you dont need my pictures in the queue. I uploaded alot of my pictures a while back and it said, when i uploaded them, that there were 31 pictures waiting to be validated, but i still havent seen my ones go up and it has been more than 31.

Your perception of the situation is incorrect.

Over the last six days five of the pictures have been different authors. We don't validate streams of pictures by the same person even when they are submitted in a group, there is always some mixing of the order to prevent precisely the situation you describe.

Personally I think pictures should be posted in the order of best to worst, but the community wants it done in date order as has been shown repeatedly when we have had polls on the issue. In fact, last time we offered a vote there was very little interest on the issue with "Donuts" coming within 1 (one!) vote of being tied for winning.

The picture that I suspect will be validated tommorow was submitted to the site in mid december.

While I didn't pay to much attention to where your pictures were in the que when I deleted them I beleive there was a group of three that would have been due in about a week (did you submit them around christmas time?) along with one that was towards the botom of the que which would have been up some while afterwards.

I haven't checked the status of the que at the moment, but at the time of the POTD problems we were having out of 35 pictures 21 were by the same 4 people. That having been said, our focus on the POTD's recently did get quite a few different people posting pictures which makes the que considerabely more unique.

Freyr;3518146Your perception of the situation is incorrect.[/quote] Perhaps i am, but it is the way i feel about it.

Freyr;3518146 Over the last six days five of the pictures have been different authors. [/quote] Im not talking about just six days though, im talking more about a long period of time. Some people get to have the oppurtunity to have a least two of their pictures shown each week. I dont know if this is because you recieve a low number or not, but it is quite unfair.

[quote=Freyr;3518146]In fact, last time we offered a vote there was very little interest on the issue with "Donuts" coming within 1 (one!) vote of being tied for winning.

Simple, remove the "donuts" option from the polls.:p

I think i submitted them around Christmas yes, but technically they would have been submitted already if it is done in the order of date uploaded, if there were 31 in front of me like it said. I appreciate you removing them so quick, thanks.

Yes, we receive a low number of pictures. No, its not unfair at all. If anybody submits large numbers of POTD's then eventually when we get to that point in the que we will have to post them, resulting in them getting a couple of pictures up in a week.

If there were more people submitting POTD's then there would be more variety of authors.

Simple, remove the "donuts" option from the polls.:p

But it would be destroying years of tradition!

I think i submitted them around Christmas yes, but technically they would have been submitted already if it is done in the order of date uploaded, if there were 31 in front of me like it said.

As stated previously, we do slightly vary the date order to avoid showing pictures by the same author consecutively. When the same author submits a large number of pictures then we have to go further back into the que to get pictures from a different author.

I appreciate you removing them so quick, thanks.

No problem.

Not to be funny Gavin, but you've had a number of your pictures validated in the past (and some, fairly recent). It isn't if people haven't seen your pictures, most of those you make / take are shown in the Screenshots thread anyway (so there isn't really any point validating them as PoTD's as people will have already seen them). In addition, you've asked for pictures of yours to be deleted in the past via MSN, would this not be why they aren't going up?

My point exactly. This has been sorted for a while so please lock this thread.
