Acceptance ratio

posted on 2nd of november, 2009

Today I have studied my statistics area and I have found that October was the 5th month with 100 % acceptance of my uploaded images. The same situation was in January, March, July and August. Apart June, when I got accepted just 66 percent of my uploaded images, also the other months were good - always over 90 %.
