    Dave has/did have some sort of process that does a mass approval.

    I assume that these were missed due to a glitch.

    Dave, if you now allowed the dwarfs to see any photos submitted by these 2 contributors, would any old missing ones suddenly appear on our to do list?

    Well that's already prompted me to knock one more off, restoring Surrey to 100% and getting my first review of the year in (albeit an update of a 'holding' one). There could be hope for 2021 yet!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    The Prince Alfred has one but it's of the pub's in-house mouse, with glowing eyes.

    Not sure what has happened, but it does look like there are quite a few still trapped. Will try to figure it out.

    Still, my trip to West Cornwall no longer has any targets thanks to John McGraw having already done them.

    I have lots of pub and pub sign photos but I am not clear on how you add them to the pages on here, Arthur Chappell

    There should an 'Upload (Drag & Drop Files)' box visible on each pub page.

    NB - If possible, pictures should be recent, showing how the pub currently looks from the road. Older pictures can be uploaded too, but these will usually be suppressed from showing on the main pub page (although they will still be visible on the 'Pub Pictures' page for people interested in the history as well as interior details, etc.)

    Still a few showing as not having pics: The Oak for example.

    Thanks, Dave. I missed this announcement somehow - hope you didn't think I was ungrateful for the prompt response to my suggestion! (Same day, too - very impressive.)

    Yes, that's the idea! Any pubs with *only* a photo or other picture that was uploaded in July 2004 will show as photoless until someone takes and uploads a new one. The one you mention has got quite a decent photo, but lots of them are just drawings or images from place mats - the photo of The Oak is just small format, but there are others that don't do either the pub or this site any favours.

    Another pub on the map as photoless but with a reasonable picture, albeit 2004, it looks the same as it did when I reviewed it in 2016. Shame I failed to take a photo at the time.
