I’m not sure I fully understand why you would take on that task alone to begin with.
If this whole gallery is subject to Leigh’s personal taste, and yes I read what you said about disliking the vast majority of things you allow through, but it’s still based on the acceptance criteria of one person.
Perhaps given your willingness the other day to open the gallery to all, you’re looking for away out of this lengthy and not always fairly judged task. Maybe a pass or reject gallery where all users can freely submit, but their permanent placement in the main gallery is decided upon by votes. That to me sounds like a simple enough solution. Though I don’t doubt that poorly conceived naked women shots would make the cut far more often than most would desire.
