My apologies to Lobo for starting this one again I think my angle is a little different and I am really not trying to open up a can of worms but I am just curious as to how the inspections have been done so fast recently. I for sure am very pleased and happy about it but it begs the question (at least to me it does" as to what is being done differently now than in the past? Have there been a ton of new inspectors added? Has policies changed internally? Have they been given better quicker tools to work with? Maybe a combo of all? I had a file get APPROVED (and some rejected) in main collection and editorial within a few hours and I just had to ask and Lobo locked up the last one before I could ask. So unless the reason is that the quality standards have been lowered greatly then I say Great Job and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Hi all. The exclusive queue has shrank rapidly as I've recently cleared a lot of extra inspectors to process the exclusive queue. Almost 50% of the total photo team is now cleared for exclusive love action and will try to grab exclusive batches before they will go to the normal queue. They only go to the normal queue if there's no more work in the exclusive queue. They're so eager to get your stuff processed that we've been at this 'All Exclusive Locked' status for a week or so now. This means that as soon as your file passes the servers processing stage and joins the exclusive queue, it gets locked by some eager inspector. A batch can be locked for up to 24 hours this doesn't mean it will be inspected straight away but in general terms.. it's going to be fast.


We want to try and keep it as close to zero as we can for you. Glad to hear it's working out for everyone! :)

We've been adding performance enhancing drugs to the fish heads.

No one can give any more info than that without violating their NDA.

But we're glad to know the speedy service is noticed and appreciated.

I'll leave this for Lobo to lock tomorrow morning, if anyone else wants to sneak in some praises for the dedicated and hardworking Inspectors.

From what I understand the team has been working it hard. There have been some communication enhancements that have really helped as well. And, of course, fish heads. Rolly, Polly, fish heads.

They have upgraded the spouts on our computers that deliver the fish heads.  One problem is that the new spout now spits the fish heads out onto the floor rather than my desk and I have to fight the cat for them.

Why not get the cat to do the inspecting?


Seriously, inspectors are doing a great job!

Hmmm... You might want to check with IT, my spout shoots straight at my mouth in large chunks.

Vector inspections also in Warp speed. Just few hours between upload and approval (or rejection). Good job IS.
