I just realised that within the next 2 days we will have a million images on this web site.
Will there be a special prize given to the image number 1000000.

I imagine there will be a bit of a hicup as loads of EPZers try and nail it!

Erm, not quite. There are 17462 pages in the gallery (if you show 40 images per page) which falls some way short of a million - 698,480 to be precise.
I suppose that's down to all the deletions over time. What we may have is the one millionth upload?

30% of uploads get deleted?

crikey

a lot of people unhappy with their work, or flouncing off in a huff I guess Smile

Someone once said 'it's aggro that makes the world go round' - I expect that after they've taken a beating, the thirty-percenters go away, try harder and return triumphant.....or not, as the case may be Wink

that's pretty much 2000 pics that have been uploaded over the past 2 days! Does this count mods or is it just gallery shots?
16 Sep 2008 5:32PM
Actually...

The photo count counts for all photos throughout the site (ie: challenges, competition photos, gallery photos, modifications, variations, etc). So yes, still the 1,000,000 th upload to the site.

Yeah but with 1784 views the percentage return is relatively poor......so I took pity and gave it one Grin
