From what I understand, the pics were received in time by the person who posts the pics for the homepage. However, due to the deviation from what has been the standard monthly photo submission, he was unsure if he should post them and chose to wait for your approval first. I have been submitting photos within this same time-frame manner for over ten years, with no problems until now. I was not made aware of this added layer of beaurcracy and the need of a reveiw of the submissions prior to their being posted, as again, it has never been an issue before now. From now on, I will make an effort to submit time-sensative photos submissions in a more timely manner.
If you would like to discuss this further, I can only suggest that the open forum may not be the best place to address this matter.
