I'm always curious about the Adobe Stock review process

I recently had two images accepted on Labor Day. I've also had images accepted on a Sunday here and there. This suggest to me that there are actually two queues involved when it comes to having images accepted or rejected. One, where the moderator accepts images on a Friday, for example, and the images are then sent to a server where they wait their turn to be uploaded a day or two later.

Another reason I suspect this. On a couple of occasions, I've discovered minor errors on an image that was next in line for review and deleted it, only to find it accepted the following day, requiring me to delete it again. Have other contributors had this happen to them or have moderators been working overtime?

 

No big deal. Just thirsty for knowledge. 🙂

This is an example of a database that is completely or partialy queued on several servers.

This is done primarily to reduce transaction load on a server.

It can take hours and sometime days to sync the data.

I often change titles and keywords on photos that are not selling. Often the changes take a day before

I notice the change in the search result.

I think, @RALPH_L has a nice explanation for the “delayed”  delete. A different explanation could be, that the moderation process did just start when you deleted the asset. Moderation can take several hours or days, if a supervisor is asked to clarify an issue.

How do you know that the asset got accepted on a Friday? Did you get the e-mail on a Friday?

 

As for Sundays: some moderators may work in a different time zone. Their workday may have just started when you are still resting.

As for Labour Day: That is not a universal holiday. At my location, that is May 1st.

"How do you know that the asset got accepted on a Friday? Did you get the e-mail on a Friday?"

I don't. In fact, I'm usually notified by email of acceptances or sales 24 to 48 hours after the fact. In any case, I'm certainly not complaining. Waking up on Labor Day and seeing I had two images accepted was alright by me. And the next day, 28 were accepted. Whatever Adobe's process is, I'm good with it. 🙂

Adobe employs 26,000 people WORLDWIDE. 

I'm certain Stock Reviewers reside all over the place, where your Sun is their Mon and Labor Day is just another workday.

Indeed, they are probably employees of a contractor. Nevertheless, they would represent a tiny fraction of Adobe's total workforce.

How many assets get approved each day? My guess is that Stock is highly profitable and that moderation is a high cost factor in running stock.

Does it matter? Un-paid volunteers like us are effected by clock & holiday differences, too.  When I'm sleeping, the other half of the globe is awake and vice versa.  12% of Christians celebrate Christmas in January, not December.

Moderators are paid, we are volunteers, "saving the world" (cf my wife!)

But I assume that most moderation is done by contractors, as may be other Adobe operations. It's busines. At Adobe, someone counts the dollars and finds that it is profitable. Adobe reigns upon an empire where the sun never sets. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_V,_Holy_Roman_Emperor#)  

(This is not a judgement, I always think that the aim of any company is to make money, to pay their employees and get them a decent living. And the same for us: Adobe makes a set of tools, that give us a decent living. So that is good.)
