As of today, the P-M photo database now totals in excess of 50,000 pics. Whilst the numbers may not be on a par with the likes of JP
, A.net, etc., I do, however, think that this is still something to celebrate, especially bearing in mind that the photo upload system was out of action for quite a few months last year, as a result of which many of our regular contributors walked away.
A big thank you, not only to all those who have posted their shots (and continue to do so), but also to our screeners (past and present). Without you, none of this would have been possible. Keep up the good work and here's to the next 50,000!
Agreed. Would just like to echo Baltimores words. The site has seen massive change and upheaval under the surface - and under very sudden and tragic circumstances - the fact that the site is still up and running is a minor miracle in itself. A couple of years ago 50,000 uploaded photo's was a very distant and pessimistic dream for the site. So from the screeners to the contributors - and to the folks who simply view the graphs, thank you all very much indeed.
