My photo / comment wasn't added
There are a number of reasons why your photo was not added:-

  • Be patient, it can take up to 12 hours or so for a moderator to approve it.
  • Your photo was not related to Wigan.
  • The image quality wasn't good enough.
  • It was not suitable for a family audience.
  • Copyright! Please don't scan books.
  • The image wasn't cropped, you scanned the entire scanner bed.
  • It was upside down.
All comments are moderated before being added. Please allow up to 12 hours or so for an administrator to add. Any personal attacks, foul language, racism etc. will not be tolerated.
Advertising
Most advertising is handled by third parties, however, I would be keen to welcome sponsorship of sections of wiganworld. For example, the What's On section or Photos section could be branded for your business to gain more exposure. It would also help with my hosting fees.
No thanks, I get requests daily and I delete them all. They are of no relevance to Wigan and have no interest to people visiting.
Contributions
If you have old photos, these can be added yourself by visiting the album and clicking 'Add Photo'. If you have any other material you think will benefit wiganworld, please contact us. Contributions are most welcome and acknowledgent will be given, thank you.
Please email the photo, make / model of camera and title / brief description to brian@wiganworld.co.uk.

Please be aware that I receive lots of photos (too many to be able to add them all) so please don't be disappointed if I don't use it.
