Why would you go through all of the effort of getting to page two only to change your mind on uploading a photo? I really don't get it! Why would you even bother to enter in all the info, select the image, and proceed to the second page if you think the photo is marginal or for some other reason you don't want it uploaded?
Now we're starting to see why there's the upload limit. If people are uploading everything without much thought (I think the term is "card-dumping"), that chokes up the queue with photos that even the photographer himself (or HERself) knows is marginal. Then we all have to wait a few more days to get our decent shots uploaded.
Personally, I have a folder in my computer that I call "airliners.net uploads". As I edit my photos, I drag them into that folder and they sit there until I upload them. Right before I sit down to upload, I'll go through the folder, view each photo in Internet Explorer, and critique it. If it passes, it stays in that folder. If not, it gets deleted and I start over from the RAW image. Once I upload a particular file, I'll drag it into my "Uploaded" folder. Simple.
And Florian, your idea is awesome, I wish airliners.net had that feature! I upload to railpictures.net (see http://www.railpictures.net/showphotos.php?name=AndrewUber
), and they do have that feature. But even there - once it's in the queue, it's going to be screened - there's no backing out!
The moral of the story is - make sure you're uploading good quality photos. If you're not absolutely sure - do all of us a favor and don't waste the screeners time.
