That's a move to probably help justify clickhappy (Royal) wanting to get all his images of first flights priority screened.

Two pics accepted as priority didn't get the news banner. Both they have stickers, bigger than Air China example provided above.

We have made the decision to make some changes to what qualifies for Priority Screening (PS). The spirit of these changes is being driven by two things; feedback from our users and our objective of trying to be more timely with the delivery of photos that are being discussed in the aviation world. Please keep in mind that there are some pretty big changes and we will be fine tuning these guidelines as we move along. But, it is important to state, the goal is to get more pictures added at a faster cadence.

Here is a summary of the changes:

We will now be offering PS for new cabin shots. If an airline changes its hard product we want those shots added as quickly as possible. This will be done on a first come, first served basis (already implemented).

New reg numbers will be added. This one will be tricky. To start, we are offering this for new frames from these manufactures; Airbus, Antonov, Boeing, Bombardier, Comac, Embrarer, Irkut, Mitsubishi, Tupolev, etc. Hopefully you can see where this list is going; any new Commercial airliner is game. We will need to proactively look for these until people become accustomed to alerting as at the time of upload.

We will also be offering PS screening for new military jets. New schemes, tail flashes, camo, regs, etc will be considered.

First visits of newsworthy aircraft will now be considered for PS. Common sense applies. The recent Airbus A350 tour of North America would be considered newsworthy. The first visit of a Cargoloux 747-8F to Bern wouldn't. First flights and deliveries will also be in-play.

There are a few points I would like you to consider with these changes (in no particular order):

We will be making these changes. This is not a trial run. However, we would welcome your feedback on what we can do to make it better. Once we have system up and running we will look to continue to expand it.

All photos considered for PS will need to meet our quality and motive standards. Obviously this will be addressed on a case-by-case basis (as it currently is). If you grab a photo of a B-2 bomber dropping a weapon on an alien spaceship, and it's a little blurry, that's okay. If you upload a blurry shot of an A350 visiting Atlanta, and 20 other photogs were there, your image will be rejected.

There will always be an element of discussion that will go on internally with some requests. As we push forward with this the guidelines will be adjusted accordingly. We would encourage anyone who has what they consider to be a newsworthy photo to contact us at priorityscreening@airliners.net

The worst we can say is no.

A couple of things to note:

Please only send one email if you have multiple reg numbers you would like us to screen.

There will be a few bugs to work out as we do this, please be patient as we sort things out.

Thanks
...or maybe they could just start priority screening photos that met the existing criteria :x

And not surprisingly, Royal takes full advantage of the new reg policy, getting a new-to-the database Xiamen Airlines 787 priority screened and promoted.

A new criteria that priorize mainly two screeners and their friends, T. Laurent on the Airbus side and Royal in the Boeing.

Royal was asked about what qualifies for news banner in his thread but he didn't answer.

I don't mind the new reg policy as the site is meant to be an image database and the site has lost the edge to others in terms of getting images of new aircrafts to a fleet up.
