I've got a question especially to the admin(s).
What are the criteria to get in the headline on the frontpage with a new aircraft of an airline or a new coloursheme? Any special rules to follow (except sending a mail to the admin after uploading the picture). Does it have to be one of the major airlines? Or just a very colourful sheme? I'm asking cause I don't wanna send mail to the admin of a new aircraft or new coloursheme which I got if I know in advance that it isn't really of interest for putting it in the headline, cause I think the admin has enough other mail stuff to do.
Any answers would be really appreciated.

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been...

Thanks for the answers. I already thought that a lilltle airline like Air Moldova is not interesting enough . Another question is has anyone ever sent a mail pointing out something new and has he got any answer if it was not "new" enough? I didn't so you never know if the mail went throug or if it was not interesting enoug hfor the public. Just asking ...

I believe that if the powers at be decide to do a feature on a particular subject, your photos will also be listed.
IE, aA friend of mine go his photo linked from the start page, as he uploaded it when Johan was doing a feature on 707's in the desert, davis montan or mojave I think it was.
