I have a suggestion that I've always wanted to see on WU - a memberlist and a "Users Online" thing on the side, just like on AWF.

"Actually I didn't volunteer I was invited"

Actually, you were volunteered by someone else. *grin*

As a note for those who wonder how the AC process REALLY works, it is not enough for one moderator to think your image is AC worthy.

There is a voting process.

One moderator will nominate your image and it goes into an anonymous que. There, other moderators look at it, and vote YAY or NAY.

:)

Code sorry I was speaking in jest!! Brandyn and I have been chatting via e-mail for about half an hour. I have been answering his queries and discussing his photos.

Thank you, thank you for coming in to support me but he and I are friends and he is a great kid. Sorry perhaps he doesn't like to be called kid - I know Lee never liked it, so my apologies Brandyn if you feel the same way.

And again my apologies to you Code for accidentally misleading you.

And you jest about it anvil? Shame on you!

My apology anvilhead. Thought you had really hacked into her account. Has happened far too often of late, and is a pet peeve of mine.

Thank you Madrid :) Actually I didn't volunteer I was invited and was quite shocked to be so I must admit, but I do love doing it. Didn't think I would as much as I do. Some do a lot more than others but then some people have to go out to work.

Brandyn has gotten his revenge - he has just had me locked in my Mail Box for about half an hour, lol. A lot of his photos are very good and are worthy of being in the AC gallery but then that applies to many. I do try, and I know Leia does too, to look out for new members and recommend for an AC if the work merits it. I think it encourages everyone to try that little bit harder. I know it did with me and joining this site has certainly raised my game.

I can only say that you guys do a wonderful job with the pictures. I was always amazed at the amount of pics that are handle here and new the approvers are volunteers.

For me just participating in uploading my photos is enough.

Thank you so much to all the volunteers for your unselfish time and effort.

Okay Brandyn tell me which ones they are and I will give you an honest opinion. You must remember that these photos are basically a personal choice and many, many excellent photos do not get to that gallery simply because of the amount going through each day.

I did and then you lost it, I was giving an honest opinion on my photos to taz, not dericted at anyone approvers opinion, and I understand about approving, i said it took 2 hours meaning increse in site traffic, me and taz never finished, I am taking pictures for fun, but in my opinion I was kind of wondering.

KUDOS TO YOU GUYS for keeping the site running so smoothly! I know Rand had a problem, but I was on and off all day with no problems, no lost posts or slow down of the blogs or my radar! Great job ... Thanks for what you do!

Not many people work at this site, so i am amazed at how you can keep her afloat, thanks for keeping it up there, I am going to a hockey game, wont be back till 5:00 (my time) look for eclipse

yes i have noted that the photos approvers have been a little slow has of late

Thanks Aaron, I understand, look foreward to ac's on the board since approvers completely ignore my photos


Brandyn we do not ignore your photos or deny them AC's. You must remember it is basically a personal choice.

And while you are complaining about having to wait two hours well one day I had to wait FOUR as I was the only one doing approving and I cannot approve my own shots.

Taz at the moment I am approving between 200 and 300 shots a day. Would you like me to stay up all night so I could do a few more?!!

I am getting so tired of hearing petty gripes from people who haven't a clue as to how things work. It was months before I ever got an AC but I didn't go around whining to all and sundry about it.

Frankly I think it would be a good idea if the whole idea of AC's was dropped altogether. After all in the great scheme of things does it really matter a damn?!!! As for flouncing around if you don't get one - grow up people!!!

ScarlettOHara - Thanks! I wish I could explain to everyone how dedicated we all are to this site, and how much time and effort goes into keeping a busy web site like this one afloat.

We just wish we could explain to you all how much we appreciate that dedication, time, and effort...
