I guess the only rejection reason those days was the Bad Info. I am guessing this coz I find almost all of the (old) photos with perfect information...(though incorrect information may have been correct recently).

Back in the 1998-2000 timeframe I could not get a photo accepted on A.net to save my life, and I know even at that time the screening was considered to be very strict. Looking back now on the photos I was trying to submit, for some reason they were incredibly grainy and soft once scanned. I still don't know what the problem was, but fortunately digital photography solved my scanning issues. Back in the old days scanning tips and techniques seemed to occupy more forum time than Photoshop workflow. I have some older shots I'd love to get accepted here, but I just don't think they'll make it.
Here's another question: I seem to recall that digital photos were at one time not permitted on this site - or they were at least strongly discouraged. When did that change?

John, the standard of digital cameras has come on in leaps and bounds over the last 3 or 4 years and is continuing to improve at an amazing pace. I remember not long ago one of my friends showing me his "state of the art" 2MP digital camera. Nowadays, that's considered stone-age technology. The advent of digital SLR cameras has also meant that digital photography isn't something that is done solely by Japanese tourists walking around English tourist traps, but is now taken seriously be professional photographers too.
At the same time, the quality of film and slide scanners has increased dramatically, meaning that with a modern scanner, you will get a far better result from the same slide scanning it in the home as you would have a few years ago.
It's an exciting time to have an interest in photography
