1) there is a reason beside each photo saying exactly why it has been declined. Additionally to the reasons given your photos were either dark, wonky, were odd colours and/or had fences in the way- and not to the high standards we hold when we publish photos. So they were declined.

2) This site is a bit different to other websites you may be familiar with. We run a curated gallery of quality/interesting photos - it is not a dump for everyone's repetitive photos of everything. That is why we have the approval/decline process in place.

3) TURN CAPS LOCK OFF. It is considered as shouting/rude and makes people not want to reply to you.

Hi Vince,

Sorry to trouble you.

How long does it normally take to approve/decline pictures please?

Many thanks.

Depends how speedy I am :)

A little kick sometimes nudges me into action.

I'm sure photos are dealt with as time allows. There are other things in life apart from our photos.....Keep up the excellent work Vince.

Definitely, I echo what Roy says, I've still got a few waiting to be approved/rejected from the summer, as well as one from February last year. I suspect a lot are 'on hold' in case another photo of the vehicle in question gets uploaded in the meantime. Generally though, the more newsworthy the image, or if it is of a vehicle for which there are no photos for, then the quicker it will be approved (if it meets the quality standard of course!)
