Known Problems from the Onset:
The original photo upload process...
- required Flash to be installed on user's computers. We wanted to remove our dependency on Flash.
- was not responsive. We wanted users to easily contribute photos from their mobile device.
- was not intuitive. We had a large body of anecdotal reports from users describing difficulty in contributing photos. In particular, users expressed difficulty knowing when they were "done" or had successfully provided all required information and successfully submitted their photos to the photo moderation queue.
