Thanks all

It seems that they are from one person but under different names: travelpod and then test3, test4 etc. Are they genuine photos you think?

Seems to continue now as travelpod Ryan and don't understand why someone would have multiple new member id's..?

My guess it is Ryan who posted here http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum.cfm?thread=110923 & he is running some tests prior to migrating the Travel Pod stuff

Virtually all the ones I've seen today have been from those usernames. They do seem to be genuine travel photos but I'm not sure what he's doing exactly.

The ones I saw were mostly from him but not all - there were at least two other members' photos in the mix that I can recall

Sorry guys, these are all test accounts for the Travelpod import that is imminent. They will all be deleted soon. :? Brace yourself for a flood though. Most of the Travelpod photo do have location data so will be available for featuring without mapping required.

So should we hold off from moderating while you run these tests? I think I must have already featured at least one of those photos. But as I said, there were also others among them

You could hold off if you like. There's about 12,000 photos that have been moved as part of this test run. I'll try and clear out these accounts in the next day or so. The test was successful as far as I'm concerned.

44,000 right now. So this is the point where quantity will be more important than quality and the number of featured photos will eventually be too high as well in relation to the total amount of photos. I am seeing it happen already right now. Oh well, it was fun moderating them but I think it's time for others now to decide..;) Enjoy!

But if they are all going to be deleted soon, as Peter says, should we not hold off from featuring? Once that is done, numbers should get back to normal, I'm assuming. Or have I missed something along the way? 44,000 is certainly daunting!

I am assuming they were just the travelpod id's? There are many more members now so it seems. Are these ex VT members as well? And why just now? I don't get it but it's probably needed because of economical reasons. I do understand that but the moment this happens is where the fun ends for me. It needs to be just a little controlable in my opinion.
