Currently you can upload JPEG, GIF and PNG files. All files uploaded should be under 5MB in size.
Are you sure you haven't uploaded it for the wrong date? Like February 2010 rather than 2011. Check.
As long as your account is active, your photos are safe. If you have stopped using the site after a while you may receive an email asking if you want to keep your photos on 365 Project, all you have to do is say yes and they will not be removed. This is to keep the site running quickly and smoothly. If you choose to delete a photo or your account the photo will be removed immediately, we support your privacy and will not hold photos you no longer wish to be on the website.
Go to the photo in question, there is an "Edit" button, click that and there is a delete box, tick that, hit save and your photo will be removed immediately.
Occasionally for some reason your photo may not upload correctly. Try it again and if it still fails try using the basic uploader.. http://365project.org/upload/basic if that doesn't work either, please get in contact with us.

No, it doesn't work the way you think it works - for a good reason, it doesn't matter that you have a bazillion favs and a jizillion followers, just get on with your project and try not to worry about it. Please don't email me about it, I wont tell you, search the discussion boards, there are loads of conspiracy theories about it.
