I recall back in the mid-2000s when I would search endlessly for photos of airliners and how almost any type was accepted, size big or small, exposure satisfactory to fantastic. But now it's almost impossible to submit any photo to the site. The rules are ridiculous and beyond any reason. It also doesn't make sense. They allow photographs that clearly have been heavily manipulated to be submitted but not those in which little to no editing was done. I understand that a photo has to meet a certain criteria such as I mentioned above and that quality is important. However in Airliners.net's case, there isn't any sense. I can confirm that argument with some professionals who have uploaded photos in the past to them but cannot do so anymore due to there ludicrous rules. Not to mention the search engine has gotten to be too complicated to use.
