Hello,
I noticed from yesterday that I no longer have the "Approve" tab in my account. Has there been any change?

Hi, our algorithms are constantly rotated for self-learning of the best moderation options. Voice rights changes periodically giving equal opportunities to other participants.

@MC69 Hi, you can use search bar for any query to find classes, models, series, operatos, geo objects and our users.

Some examples:

https://trainspo.com/photo/94753/ Hi,I have submitted this picture for moderation.Its been five days and its still in the waiting queue with +3 votes.Its not your everyday "well lighted" shot but I believe it is a decent attempt at a rain shot.You know 5 days is way too much time to decide on a photo.I suggest giving the voting rights to people who are active and well reputed photographers or to people who are "neutral" because this is ridiculous.I don't mind getting negative votes but this inactivity is such a waste of time.

Hi, i agree that this no good, but we are free community and we do not force people to vote. We have a large amount of people who can vote, and it's sad that some pictures are receiving votes faster and some others are not. We are trying to improve this algorithm all the time.

I have been in this site for 8 years. Recently I saw that moderation moved to voting system. It was going fine for me. Quite recently I am experiencing a strange experience . For eg :: https://trainspo.com/photo/96318/ . This pic was uploaded last friday. I got 4 positive votes. The 5th vote never came for the past 4 days. Similarly there are 4 pictures. All the pictures which came before and after this picture got approved. From India itself 4 pictures came. Is it some restriction since I crossed 2000 pictures? All these started after that. In India , place where I live is 35 to 45 deg C . Most of you wont even stand for an hour where we Indians do trainspotting. I am not saying, the day picture is uploaded it should be approved as I am an Indian I know my place in this site. But atleast in 2-3 days is it not possible for well lighted , framed picture. I am not complaining but requesting the moderators and community voters please be fair to me too. Trains dont come to my home. Being a diabetic and had a brush with death around a year back when my effort goes useless it is depressing . I am not craving for any sympathy from you but a fair treatment from the moderators and voting community. Hope I will get it . I can request you, rest is up to the moderators and voting community. Cannot force you to act but requesting for one last time

Thanking you

Jay

Thanks to moderators and voting community for heeding my request. Being a web analyst by profession, I have seen that this site has one the best database structure which is result of hard work by the site owner. Any data mining is easy for user as the data flow is perfect . Along with the site owner, moderators & voting community & members has a stake in growing of site and sustaining it as a international train database site.

Thank you

@vincent037

Hi, I think you missed correct link for registering as a "member" and joined as "fan" account. I've corrected this, and you are able to upload now.

If you mean your flick account in profile settings, you need to enter username name, not the full link.

Greetings,
Mikahil.

@ALeventiy
Hi, i can help with it if you can suggest me a solution. For example, I can create a page in your profile, with direct links to your pictures. Also, I can create one tar.gz archive upon a request.

Should I keep uploading new vehicle classes? I saw that noone get the discovery badge this month and one of my pictures have been added after ~6 months. If there are no people to process new vehicles, it's fine, of course anyone can be too busy, just let me know what to expect...

@andreafelice.bellandi
Hi Andrea,
Your picture got +9 and -2 votes, so it will go in the gallery, but it will take some time because of the negative votes.
Have a nice evening
