Correcting photos


#1

How do we “correct” photos that have been uploaded by other users.

There are countless photos uploaded with wrong tail numbers or even the wrong type of plane or airline. :open_mouth:

That’s actually a very good question???

Many aircraft as they are sold off and replaced with newer aircraft - have the photos of the older non current aircraft and type.

Likewise - many posters have misfiled their photos with incorrect information including wrong aircraft types.

Another suggestion would be to allow fellow FlightAware members to comment on photos - similar to flickr photos.

And have the members avatar or name next their vote, mainly to see who 1-stars pretty much every photo .

Today, alone, I have seen a MD80 labeled as an Embraer 145; a Falcon 2000 labeled as a Falcon 20; an Embraer 145 with the TAIL NUMBER clearly visible incorrectly labeled; an ASA CRJ-700 become the photo for a skywest CRJ-200.

There’s got to be a way we can “edit” these.

Just live with it. It’s a reflection on the uploader, not you as the viewer.

My view’s always been that if I want to track a flight I’ll go to FlightAware. If I want to look at pictures of aircraft I’ll go to jetphotos.net or airliners.net

Yes your hatred of the FA photo section has been noted for over a year, now it’s WHEN IS THE FORUM GOING TO BE FIXED, you could always start your own site :bulb: :imp:

Please show me where I said I hated the photo section? I’ve indicated that I don’t care for it but that’s a long ways from hating it.

I am not the only one who has asked when the forum is going to be fixed.
