Maybe related to commentary on the site, this is not a 'shout' or 'whinge' but it may be that a number of new people are joining, and pitting images up, but the message comes that they are awaiting approval and there are no details. Just seems a little ? to allow image posting before approval-?

I've noticed that too. Also when members have been suspended or otherwise left the site one can sometimes see images in the 'recently updated' side bar. Seems a bit odd and doesn't reflect well on the site.

Is this a recent phenomena? Seems common over the last few days, but I'd not noticed I before. Did something change?

I've noticed these sort of things from time to time over the past year or so, I think.

Yeah, I noticed this too for the first time yesterday, photos from photographers and models who are still awaiting approval appearing on the daily uploaded photos section. There's actually one currently on the home page gallery. While it's actually a lovely photo, I find it strange that it's there if the person submitting it hasn't even been approved yet. And am I right in thinking that on top of this, images on the home page gallery are restricted to paying members (not that I'm saying I think they should be)? If so, it's even stranger a photo is on there from someone still awaiting approval. Tim, you've provided input/insight on this thread, any chance of your thoughts on this seemingly new occurrence?

Just to add to some of the strangeness, clicking through the models showing in "members on-line" (it doesn't take long) at least 3 of them are awaiting approval and one is suspended.

Yep, same here; just clicked on a photographer who's supposedly currently online, only to get the 'This member's profile has been suspended' notice.

Thanks everyone for the help with identifying the different scenarios regarding the recently uploaded images or online members, we are looking into this to discover what's happening. Thank you.

We think we've identified the cause of this and applied a fix, we are monitoring the fix to make sure but we haven't seen the issue crop up again since we applied it. If anyone notices anything else please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks once again for giving us the heads up on this, greatly appreciated.
