Five years ago one of my first threads was about the best and worst PotDs on FilesNetwork. Almost 900 threads later, I thought it would be helpful to see once again what to do and what not to do when submitting new pictures. ;)

Great work.

Lol, i wonder though, why is it when i submit POTDs that they only stay up for like 3 hours?? Mine was from the same vein as the Best FarCry image, it was a similar image of FC2.

Riles presumably has access to the back-end of the sites. It's been a long time since I've seen that though, I can't remember what features it has and it's probably changed a lot since.

If that's not how he did it, and he just trawled through them all like us peons have to do, then we really need to take him out for a night on the town.

Some funny ones there though. I'm not quite sure I understand Serious Sam 2's "the worst" though :/.
