This photo is not selected for Google Earth?????

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

Well Rita...

This month reviewing team made me very happy. I have ten pictures (or so) rejected for reasons that I cannot understand... And I read several times their acceptance policies (both the GE and Pano).

I applied for re-reviewing and they were rejected again. So, I decided not to upload more pictures until the reviewing process will become normal. If this will happen...

It's a real pity. I don't know why Panoramio team reject this type of photos. What's wrong? The frames, the signature? Ciao.

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

Thank you Dino!

Nobody is really explaining - the reviewing process is as transparent as a concrete wall. There are only hypothesis on the Forum about this, and I saw a lot of complains about it.

Some people came up with a "solution" - to delete the picture and re-upload it again. I will not do that. The comments and visits one is getting on a picture have to be respected more than the reviewing team's whims.

Cheers! Sandy

Sandy friend, I feel the same with this photo Duro desierto !!! I see nothing wrong with this .... and even less in your photo :(!!! Anyway this will not stop our cameras!!!

Friendly greetings, Toto

Dear friend


you can complain abot your photo and belive it will be accepted like in my case

You can do that here

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

Thank you Toto for your support!

Maybe we should suggest that the reviewing process should be transformed in a lottery - it's anyway arbitrary enough... Like this they will save money on personnel (they can put a computer to run it) and everything will be explainable...

Best regards my Tango friend!

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

Thank you Boris! I already did that and it was re-rejected... So that the confusion about the reviewing process is still on.


Boris Jurišić on September 24, 2009

Do that again and again and again....

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

It is possible only once for a picture, Boris.

Alexandru Ioan on September 24, 2009

Un vot si din partea mea. Mult succes!

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

@Craig Robins I applied for re-reviewing here... It seems the drop-down shadow border is the reason - but this is just guessing (reviewing process is as transparent as a concrete wall). I asked (in a way) on forum here...

Thank you for your kind intervention!

Mulţumesc Simona! Comentariile şi voturile tale sunt întotdeauna binevenite. :)

Mulţumesc s h a d o w! Toate cele bune!

Such long eyelashes demand that I return to vote - good luck Sandy - yet another non-selection - whatever is the matter with the selection team?

Sandy065 on September 24, 2009

It seems my drop-down eyelashes are losing to my drop-down shadows... Of the photo border. :)

Thank you Amelia!

Amelia Royan on September 24, 2009

608 views - well 609 now!

Do you know for a fact, that the drop down shadows influence the decisions? If so - then stop using them!!! They look really good mind you, and my yellow boat wasn't selected either ... WTH :))

Sandy065 on September 25, 2009


It's just a guess... They say something about the borders in the acceptance policies for GE but it wasn't a problem until now.

About your beautiful yellow boat - did you even tried to use the form for re-review it? It's possible only once per photo...

whoelius on September 25, 2009

That this isn't selected for Google Earth is completely retarded.

This is a wonderful photo and perfectly depicts the place. Why shouldn't it be linked to on Google Earth?

The selection policy has gone stupid in recent days.

I am back to vote again, but, Eduardo Manchòn writes in the forum:

"Contest: the button appears again if you already voted for it before the maintenance period, however this second vote is not counted."

Good luck! Cheers, Marilyn
