do members post a location and then leave and come back days later to post photos or not post them at all? I will never understand this...just post a location and add the photos.. many sit empty after 72 hours and I have deleted sooooooo many...just venting :)

Sadly I think that one of the offshoot results of doing this is that great galleries often get missed. On a number of occasions lately, I've stumbled onto galleries (often through clicking on user comments) that are totally great and thought to myself, "How the heck did I miss this gallery when it was posted originally?" Then I realize that the creator was one of those ones who make a location and do not post photos for a day or two later. I do not think to 'check back' once the location rolls down the list.

The uploader may fail when people try to upload (user error or website error I don't know). I'm waiting on an updated version of it.
 
Lotus will take care of them though...

On occasion I have created a location and added one picture to secure the ownership of the location. Being very busy (Thanksgiving) It took me 2 or 3 days to get back to posting a full gallery. I agree with ground state that this will cause many people to miss these entries. The website used to display both new locations and new galleries. Now the new galleries are harder to find, you have to click  on Tab number 2 which I don't often remember to do. I'd like to go back to the "New location, new gallery" method of old. I also like to see the creator of said gallery to easily identify locations in my area. Some of the Ottawa locations look fantastic, but it's been about 10 years since I've been there and maybe another 10 years before I go again.

That being said BPS what were the sites?  I know there were two or three of them, but don't usually look over the sites again.
 
Guess that is kind of a negative to posting 1 pic to only return.  Not many people really see them.
 
Chances are highly unlikely someone will post the same site within a day or two.

Locations can no longer be put online if there are no photos.
 
Locations can be put online and the images removed afterward but then Lotus will try to delete it.

It could be that they have made the location and did not realize that they would spend so much time working on their photos. Not everyone uploads as soon as they get home. I know I don't.

chalk it up to being new and not having the entry planned out to be uploaded, sometimes I find myself wanting to put certain pictures up before others, mostly due to layout of the site explored. I would organize and edit the pictures and build the entry offline then upload them all at one time. I think if you have to do quite a bit of editing of the photos then would it be easier to upload a new gallery that way the entry is made and it can be added to at a later time
