Glenn, we have covered it before and you, yourself, offered some possible solutions to the deletion problem. You just haven’t instituted a system to ensure there’s a POTW each week. This is not on us. I don’t remember all the suggestions. Here are some thoughts . . . I mentioned that for years in the past since, when we sign up we agree that one of our photos might be chosen to be POTW, the photos chosen were made non-deletable by the system. It was a system that worked. You were uncomfortable with that, thinking someone who doesn’t want their photo used should not have to. Fair enough. Contact them BEFORE posting their photo rather than simply doing it without asking and leaving it to chance whether or not they’ll delete it. Let them know that once they agree, they’ll be unable to delete. Alternatively, set up some kind of system where people can submit photos for consideration to be POTW with the understanding they will be non-deletable if chosen. Or, allow for a checkbox upon submission of a photo to one’s gallery to indicate whether it’s OK to use this photo for POTW. I nominate any photo by GordonJB, Uhooru, Supriyo, Robin Smith, Jane Cave, Leslie Reed, Sandy Vongries, Sanford, Tim Lookinbill, MMarcott, David Triplett, Harry Baker, or myself.
