Even we are simple transport gallery, we aim to be enjoyable for all visitors. Therefore we have Uploading index.
Every uploaded or rejected photo changing index in following way:
- Approval of 1 photo adds 0.5 points to the Uploading Index;
- Rejection of 1 photo when uploaded via Regular Upload queue takes 0.5 points off the Uploading Index;
- Rejection of 1 photo when publishing a photo via Instant publishing takes 5 points off the Uploading Index;
- Provisional publication adds 0.2 points to the Uploading Index, but only until user receives unlimited uploads;
- Photo deletion within a day after publication is equivalent to a rejection. Removes 1 point (-0.5 points for rejection and -0.5 accrued for publication).
If the photo has been on the site for more than a day, deletion does not affect the Uploading Index.
If the upload index is 40 or less, there is a daily limit on the number of photos that the author can offer for publication, equal to the index (rounding down).
1 - We call it Sanctions. Only upload violators get this. Upload limit is 1 photo per day, in order to prevent uploading deliberately bad and inappropriate photos with intent.
5 - Value for all newly registered users. Can upload 5 photos per day.
40 - Point where daily limit is automatically removed. Photos are still checked by Photo screeners.
80 - Here you get Instant upload, bypassing Moderation queue. Photos are checked from time to time, in order to see possible violations or errors.
100 - Maximum value of the index. User is trusted. Index will not grow above this value. No upload limits or post moderation*.
*Please note: The Administrator or photo screeners may switch to unlimited instant upload for a user immediately if it is seen that the user is uploading good quality photos.
If a user violates 'instant upload' with bad quality, unrelated or inappropriate photos with intent then an administrator can immediately return the user back to moderation or daily limit without notification.
