Sure, but...

There are also projects where it seems no discussion really occur to try 
to resolve things.

In this case, one of the user responsible of the mess (not the one 
uploading the images, but the one putting them on Ariel page) is also 
one with a pretty impressive list of "you uploaded this image, but it is 
not taggued".

Check by yourself


And this has been going on for months

half of the images he uploaded in the past, it seems, have been deleted.
I hope the other images are okay.
