Hi,
I have upload 10 photos for PPG the 25 october. Nothing have move. And i have voted for hundreds of photos...
Is it normal ?
It can be, I have seen it take 6 weeks or so before. How did you upload 10 photos at once, though? There's a limit of 5 per week.

In the first week the limit was 10.

The first photo I uploaded on October 31st cleared the queue and was accepted after 28 days. Those that were submitted after that date are still pending. I'm not sure if what you are seeing is unusual, but I was surprised that it was taking 4 weeks to be approved or declined.

I've been voting every day and it has been taking about 20 minutes to get through the photos.

I uploaded 5 on Oct. 24th and they were all approved 14 days later. I uploaded 5 on the 25th and all were still in the queue on Nov. 25th along with the other 10 I had uploaded. I decided to delete everything I uploaded after the 24th and start over.

Yes, I noticed the same thing last night. I thought maybe I was just in a generous mood

I finally had one rejected this morning. Got 10 accepted before the first reject. I was beginning to think that everything that hit 4 weeks in the queue was automatically getting accepted.

Dunno if I am just setting my standards too high, but tonight atleast I have only approved of maybe 15-20%. Is it being too picky to reject photos that have dust specks? or should have 25% tighter crop?.... And the mushrooms sooo many mushrooms :O

Nope, gotta go with your gut. If you don't think it should be in there, don't vote for it.

absolutely.. last night was back to normal it seemed.. maybe 10-15%.. and that would be a probably be a stretch. I also find if I'm not sure, I enlarge the photo and end up finding something I couldn't see in the small photo like some slight camera shake/motion blur from low shutter speed.. I just don't have time time to enlarge every shot!

Actually after I posted here there was a long streak of rejections, which was rather disappointing!
I guess PPG have a good take on it which I have followed very closely.

I also have a normal approval rating of 5-10%. But then I'm pretty brutal. I'm impressed now with the rendition of the new larger images on the website - true to life with none of the previous pixelation I experienced earlier on in the transition.

I still get alot of blank photos, the memory usage is huge and it will occationally hang which I dont believe is memory related.
