I may be wrong but I have the impression that all photos during the last weeks (months?) are submitted by the same small number of photographers.
If my impression is correct, what is the reason? If not, what am I possibly doing wrong?

Photo uploads slow down towards the end of the year and the first couple of months of the new year as there isn't too much activity because of the weather and as far as airshows are concerned, etc.

But a few photographers have left, for sure, and some have been with us since the very beginning and still continue to upload, and that's highly appreciated by everyone. The ones that have left, have left for various reasons, but I think mainly because we have rejected their photos too many times and secondly because they aren't happy with the number of hits their photos were getting. Those are the two main reasons I can think of.

Other than fresh photos and fresh content, I think what we need is a sense of community and I think that's missing. There definitely needs to be more activity in the forums in order to build up the community. Questions should be asked and answered. Photos should be posted in the forums and discussed. Questions asked about photos, etc. etc. Yet, none of that is happening. I've made it really easy to insert thumbnails into forum posts from the database.

We also need people contributing to the site in other ways. Other than forum participation we need articles submitted, we need members contributing headlines to the news section, we need a good database editor to help with the data so photos can be screened faster. I can't do it all and without member participation, the site will suffer and may eventually come to an end. I hate to be so blunt about it, but we need to make some changes for the site to thrive.

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad nothing serious is wrong with the site.
