Re: Thanks to the developers!

Not keen on the new upload page at all. Lots of the useful functionality has gone. Too much space, too much scrolling needed. I had a look to see on the forum if uploaders opinions had been sought but drew a blank. Have look at J*tph***s for a much neater and slicker upload page.

RE: Isn't This Pic Dark Category?

I think it means that your photo shouldn't have had the "Dark" catgory selected as the sun is still above the horizon (unless that has changed recently).
Confusingly and, I think, incorrectly, it has also been flagged as being dark exposure wise.

Why do we need a "Dark" category anyway?
