I noticed on the upload page that we now have the option to have our photos also included on a new site called myaviation.net. It says this site has no rejections and photogs can edit and delete their photos on their own.
Sounds good as a backup site! Any more details on what's behind it?

Aaaarg, the April joke of carliners.net has come true!!!!!
More seriously: Could not find any photos of an Opel Chevett, the only car photos I'm interested in at the moment...
The solution to the size problem is simple. Just use a time limit for the photos - no photo stays longer than 90 days in myaviation.net, for example, and then there is no db capacity problem
Now the screeners will have both hands full - not just airliners.net standard uploads, but the others too, and they need to be checked to avoid porn... Good luck guys!
(I'll wait to upload my resolutionally challenged extraordinary flatbed scans (NO NOT CRAP SCANS!!!) until myaviation.net gets its own upload page, so the screeners at airliners.net aren't bothered with looking for flaws, as they will know that there'll be plenty of those.)

Wow... pretty funky. I'm sure theres a lot of potential here but I wonder what airliners.net is trying to do with this new idea since the a.net database itself offers over 400,000 photos, with most of them being HQ...
Pretty cool anyway and I hope it lasts.. Can't wait to upload a photo to a.net and get it on there as well so I can register as a photog, I've been waiting to upload a new C-130 photo anyway

If you do a search for 'United Kingdom' you should get some results, so far I think 90% of the UK shots are mine but hopefully that will change as time passes. Ben Wang has a Eurostar picture on there, there is also quite a bit of Dutch stuff too.
you can't buy time but you can sell your soul and the closest thing to heaven is to rock'n'roll

I'm wondering what effect the new site will have - I'm not against the principle of having a sort of sandpit site where less strict rules apply, but is this the best way to approach it?
Surely there is a danger whereby people might upload sub - A.net quality shots with the idea that it might luck through on to A.net, but in any case it will end up on a site regardless. Will the screeners get overwhelmed by an increased quantity of low quality material?
It may be necessary to have separate submission forms.
Off topic - does anyone know of a marine equivalent to A.net?

I am still a bit confused at the whole concept.
On the upload page it has a check box to upload to both sites. Well, if you have a photo that is good enough for airliners.net then why would you want it on the other site?
will myaviation.net get the same exposure that airliners does? Our photos on here get a lot of visitors.
I think that there should be some standards for it. I mean, the basic stuff like photos that have a partial white border or are quite obviously out of focus even to a non-photographers. I like the idea of myaviation.net but with a "lite" screening so to not get photos like this one
