  1. String of Unacceptable Editorial Caption Rejections

    The ones I've gotten lately were because the text got changed into some weird fonts. The apostrophe's become some weird A with a circle in the top of the triangle. I've been making sure I fix all that now before submitting. Probably because I'm C&Ping from multiple sites to get some of the information for the caption rather than typing it out when I'm putting in the metadata in photoshop. All the ones I submitted tonight had that same weird error, but I corrected them all b4 hitting submit.

    We have a planter out front and it's about 3 feet or so high. The adult racoons, walking on all fours were slightly taller than the planter. Definitely freaked me out that they were that big. I thought they were small fluffy things about the size of a standard rabbit by what I've seen on TV. I'm guessing there are different kinds of racoons too.

    The racoons we get around here aren't so little. I was shocked at how large they actually are. Had a family of five walk through our front yard as I was getting home one night.

    Herons will eat gophers too.

    LOL Wendy. It messes me up because you guys don't

    Cool video Sari! You get quite a few different animals there. Loved the bunnies jumping around. Fun to watch. Nothing new and exciting here. First batch of the protest images were accepted this morning and started selling right away so that's good. Two sold already. Still have the rest to sort through. I messed up yesterday and didn't get pie for the husband so I had t spend some time baking yesterday so he could have his pie on pie day O_o But he was happy to have his warm pie. I made cherry because I'm less likely to eat it (don't really need the extra calories)

    wendy, they're advocating for gun control after this most recent school shooting. The fact that the students in this last school attacked are articulate and outspoken is creates more of a chance that there's going to be a major change in the works. Many of these kids will be voting in the next presidential election and some of them in the midterms later this year. I'm thinking we might actually get higher voter turn out rates if we can get the kids to go to the polls. Of course, I'm still waiting for my video to be reviewed. they haven't liked anything I've submitted the last few days anyway, but FT has taken them. I don't submit editorial to FT though. But with the longer video review times, it makes the footage a moot point by the time it's available online. It was news tonight. Not going to be as big a story in a few days

  9. The Hummer Thread Vol.2!!!

    Waiting for video to upload. Painfully slow.... It took 20 min just to download them from my camera, now almost an hour uploading just the one. And i'm sure it'll be in line for review for days before it gets looked at (took video and stills from todays national walk out day. Had a fairly decent turn out actually for the size of this small island). Frustration. I hate waiting. (and I still have two more clips to upload). OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming...
  10. File Transfer Error Message

    LOL. Yes, well, I was trying to be polite and not use PITA, with the A being the other phrase for donkey

    A lot of damage has been done to ecosystems because of bugs and critters not native to the areas. They still check cars from time to time going to/from AZ/CA to make sure there's no produce being brought across lines due to the white fly infestation. ANd those things are a massive PITB to get rid of. We had them in OC on many of the plants. They cause a lot of damage.
  12. File Transfer Error Message

    Yes, but fortunately, for me, it was only one image out of the entire batch that was rejected for file transfer error so it wasn't as big of a PITB to reupload (but I still don't think they should count those rejections where it's an issue on their end in our total rejected images count - which is just a slap in the face anyway as I see it).

    The issue would be if anything occurred during transit and they discovered there were liquids when you didn't claim there were. And your address is on the shipping label. They woudn't even let me ship bath products at Christmas via Fed Ex. Not sure what the post office rules are on liquids. Getting a little bit of much needed rain here. Didn't show up til today (was supposed to start this weekend originally) but I suppose Better late than never.
  14. Happy e-mail

    Congrats on the "raise"!

    It's like a science project as you need to identify them too. Glad the video project worked out!
