I am having a problem with the Photography side of things, and was wondering if anyone else is having difficulties?
I have lost all my details and history in my Photography account on the site unfortunatly.
It says I have no Photos in the queue, which I did an hour ago,
I have no Photos in the database which I do,
and that I have had no rejections which I do.
In fact it's just like starting from the beginning again, as I have 5 upload slots, no acceptions, no rejections. I use another account for my Photos, under the username Nightline. The funny thing is, the one rejection I had under this username, AIHTOURS with a different email address ages ago is still there.
So I was wondering if anyone else having problems? Have I upset someone?
I'm sure its no big deal Most of my Photos are still on the database.

It's absolutly everything Jim, the upload page, and the whole of the MyPhotos section, all the history has gone. I've logged in with my normal email address and all that so I don't understand what could have happened.

AIRLINERS.NET CREW DATABASE EDITOR
I had a problem like this, when I used (still do) to use different user accounts (not airliners.net ones, the ones when you log into Windows XP) on the same PC. If I used one, it was ok, but I couldn't upload on the other one because I was not logging off from Airliners.net on my other account, so I was blocking myself out if you see what I mean. However, in the last few days, this seems to have changed and I can now upload from either whenever I want. I don't pretend to understand this, but I suspect cookies may be involved. Are you using multiple users on the same PC, this might happen if you have one PC used by the family with different user setups for each family member? You may need to find the 'right' one to use if you are.
It doesn't sound like this is your problem, but its something else to consider.

I am pleased to report the problem has been resolved. It was to do with having two usernames, of which one I have now deleted, and because there are two Ryan McGrath's on Airliners.net.
I won't go into details because it is quite complicated, but the matter is resolved.
I would like to thank both Jim's, Hepkat and Chris for their help!
The advice I can give to anyone who is having this problem is to make complete sure your profile email address is the same as your Photography email address. My Photography Account problem was abit more advanced than this though, and in that case I recommend getting in-touch with Airliners.net support.

Excellent advice AIHTOURS. We've taken steps to eliminate the possibility of duplicate photographer names, however every now and then, some interesting and unexpected conversion of parameters conspire to throw us completely off course.
The main things to remember are:
each photographer is allowed only ONE email address
the email address you use must be the same email address in your user profile
after each email or name change, you must log out before uploading again
if the old email or photographer name still appears while attempting to upload, then please manually remove the airliners.net cookie from your browser
if you receive an error message about having duplicate email addresses while trying to upload, please follow the exact instructions presented on the upload page
if you receive an error message about having duplicate photographer names, then please feel free to either initiate a name change or contact the other photographer to try and work out a solution
If all else fails or if you've been singled out for special treatment by the gods, then please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thanks for the email Hepkat,
Seems once again it is a user problem, I did everything according to the instructions, yet I have to clear cookies on my system(never was a huge fan of cookies) for the A.net system to recognise the change.
Parts of the A.net system recognise the change yet the upload page doesn't ... why is this my problem???
Deleting a single cookie is problematic.. clearing all of them is an inconvenience with other subscriptions etc.
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
