I sleep all day
Agreed. That's not as simple though as it might appear. I want all photos uploaded by a particular photographer to be grouped together, that's a must. So I would have to go by when the first photo by a particular photographer was uploaded and that makes the ordering in SQL fairly complex. That's why I order them alphabetically now, half of the times in reverse order. Anyway, I'm working on a solution to this.
Also, as you know, we try to have new photos added daily or almost daily. Some days there is just not enough time to go though all the new photos. That's why I have a special admin page that only shows photos from photographers that have been uploading for a long time and that never, or very rarely, forces me to warn or reject a photo. I can process these photos much quicker as I don't have to open the large version of every photo, just a random few. This list is used when I'm away traveling (on a slow modem connection) or when I don't have time to go though all uploaded photos.
I have been away a lot the last few weeks and therefore photos by photographers on this "traveling" page might have been added faster than others.
Again, let me point out that the reason for this is to enable new photos to be added continuously and this is not a "VIP" list or something like that.
