After one year still "Ingesting", or how to loose your top contributors

Take a look at the latest contributions in the Mapillary all-time leaderboard. The top contributors at positions 1, 3, 4, 9, 11 and 12 all stopped contributing early 2022, and their latest photos after almost a year are still ingesting.

Did they contribute so much that Mapillary is a year later still struggling to keep up, or is there no quality control in place that would notice these processes being stuck for almost a year?

Well um…

I am #6 and I contribute in “fits and starts”. They always seem to work okay, some appear very quickly and others 3-4 weeks. I am okay with this.

I did have a series of “stuck ingesting” sequences in the past (2 years?), but that didn’t affect new uploads. It did however mess up the avatar like view so it “looked like” a bigger problem. Whilst ingesting it shows the upload date, but when complete it shows the image date. I reported the stuck items as a low priority concern to support. I guess it took more than 6 months to fix. I was also okay with that.

I would suspect that with the FB and code changes (maybe also people shedding) there is insufficient resource to be fully proactive in quality. Mapillary support “expects” users to advise them to help prioritise the work. Also keep in mind that the percentage that are stuck are very small in the overall size of things.

It’s also worthwhile looking back into this forum to discover “why” those you mention ceased contributing. I think you will find that “stuck ingesting” is not the root cause.

Bonjour, j’ai signalé il y a un moment qu’un téléchargement était toujours en attente. Presque un mois après,rien n’a bougé. Quelqu’un aurait-il rencontré un problème similaire récemment ? Merci d’avance.

Mapillary is a social experiment in order to determine how far one can go before people quit.

Is this something you have noticed? It’d be great to share any instances with to help us determine whether there is a common theme to any failed sequence uploads/processing.
