Couple things:

When I upload to a challenge I wish I could title my entry at the time of upload as opposed to it being the name of my file, and when I try to change the title it won’t let me use the day I photographed it - it states it was outside the dates of the challenge. Which it isn’t, it is ON the last day, but I have to adjust back one day to accept my title change.

When I attempted to report the bug on site suggestions, I get a 503 error, when I went to the site suggestion thread by Langdon with the link to make suggestions I get a 503 error.

I wish it was easier to find ways to create threads. Is this by design to funnel people to search for answers already contained in threads?

Lastly, I wish there was a way to add photos in this forum without uploading first to a workshop or link online. Perhaps I am techno challenged . . .

Is there a setting to be notified when you are mentioned/quoted in forum threads?

There is a complete re-coding of the site which, although much-delayed, AFAIK is still in process.

I'm pretty sure some of these points have been raised before, but no functional changes are going to happen until//unless the site rewrite is done.

The date thing is a known bug (it may also happen if you try to submit immediately after the challenge is posted) -- just re-date as you have; I also put the "real" date in the photographer's notes. I think you can go back and correct the date once the voting closes.

The important thing is to have the date correct in your camera, so if the image has to get validated by the site council for any reason, it won't get disqualified for a technicality.

As Gen E said, the date thing is a known bug. It's happened to me a few times, so I just change the date until it accepts the upload.

I figured the 503 error and date issue was known . . . I feel like the site being re-tooled has been ‘in the works’ for like 10+ years ?? Perhaps I am thinking back to smaller updates/changes back in the day . . .

I've had that happen a couple times. My work-around was to unsubmit the photo and re-upload it with a filename that was changed to what I wanted for the title.
