    Yes, didn't Dave say there are 130 of them? They're not errors - they're there because I asked Dave to put them there! The thing they have in common is that they are small format and can't be enlarged. I still think it's a good idea to encourage photographers to seek them out and do a more up-to-date photograph, in terms of size and definition as much as to record the building again, but it's not compulsory!

    I think it was a mass upload that Conrad and Dave did when they transformed the previous site to something more like what it is today.

    Doubly so, given that some of the 'Anonymous User' photos show the wrong pub.

    None that I had found. Because when I encountered one (and not for a long time), I requested a dwarf delete it. At the time I thought that 'Anonymous User' was some kink of hoaxer. Only now because of your mention of Dave's and Conrad's 'site transformation' mentioned above did all become clear. But if there are some pubs with just the one photo and it's wrong, then it may be worth checking if in the area so that a correct photo can be taken.

    I created the first version of the site in early 2003, at that stage anyone could submit a photo without needing to log in. I wasn't storing them in good quality or the date they were submitted. Conrad then wrote a new version of the site that we released in July 2004, we kept all the old photos and just set the date as the day of the release. Since then lots of the old photos (around 100 were mine) have been deleted.
