Re: Why Anet Is Declining

Yes - I posted a few days ago here that my photo was submitted, accepted, but not actually added to database. Was told to submit my photo ID on another thread, which I duly did. Now a few days on, photo still not added. Wondering if anyone is actually seeing my post. http://www.airliners.net/forum/v...

Is this not a valid 'Priority Screening Upload'?

Hi all, I uploaded this shot late Sunday night (UK time), as a priority upload - BA's retro Landor paint scheme. However, it was downgraded as not being a valid priority.
