When you send the ticket to add a lens, is there any confirmation that should come back?

I added, or at least tried, last week. So far, no show. Or is there a certain number of people that have to own one? I actually did take a picture with the lens, and actually do intend to enter it in the sunshine after the rain challenge.

I'm not complaining, just curious...

I asked for one to be added early this week, so far no action has been taken either.

When I last did it I got a reply in a few days. I'm the only one who owns it too so you don't need more than one owner.

Admin presence is becoming as rare as a 6 score in my portfolio. ;)

The last time I sent an add request, (last week) it was added the same day and I got confirmation that evening.

I've done several requests for equipment additions and they've always been added within a few hours, followed by an e-mail from a SC member telling me it's been done. I also normally send them a photo of the camera or lens to make it easier.

My guess is that the SC are, like everyone else I know, pedaling hard to catch up from the short week (US Labor Day holiday on Monday), and so DPC duties have slipped.
They will get to it, rest assured; there is no requirement for a certain number of people to own, one is enough! Heck, I added a *large* number of uncommon lenses myself in years past.

The SC adds lenses and not the site administrator/owner?

You can click on help, one of the options is; DPChallenge - Equipment Addition/Change
Use this if you've noticed a problem with our camera or lens database, if you have a picture of a camera or lens that we don't, or if you own a digital camera or lens that is not in our database.

I added a lens last week and it was put in the data base within one hour.

Yep, both the lens and camera databases are managed and maintained by the SC.

If you supply a photo it may get your lens added sooner.
