Photograph dating and restoration board
« on: Wednesday 13 September 17 13:36 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

Can someone explain please why posts on the photograph dating and restoration board now have to be approved by a moderator? It seems silly and slows everything down.

Thank you.

Hi!

The mods have to vet the photos to hopefully make sure that there is no breach of copyright with them
Best wishes, Judy :-))

It can take a day before your photo is approved and appears. It depends how many mods are about, I suppose.  >:(

Thank you - I was a bit concerned something had gone wrong so thank you for putting my mind at rest.
