Hello everyone. I have been a member of the community for a while now and have always loved exploring abandoned places. I would like to move on up to level 2 as I would like to access better locations that have more to offer. I recently purchased a drone so I will be able to take very high quality photos and or videos of these locations. I have never vandalized or destroyed any locations that I have been to weather from this site or on my own finding. While I may not have contributed much to the site so far I only had access to a very low quality camera at the time, and I would like to provide much more from now on. 

Thank you for reading this and I hope to be promoted to level 2 soon,

Heavygunnertty.

I have to say the Adding Locations requirement is a little ridiculous because it will be very hard to find locations that no one else has

there are many locations that haven't been uploaded, and many properties are actively becoming urbex. i like to keep an eye out for bandos whenever i'm in a bus or car and i find a decent bit. though the most efficient way i would say is scouting google maps satellite view for clues

though the minimum requirements are not 100% strict requirements, but they are very strong criteria. you could have 2 locations but 20 albums, i would vote yes for that

RE: "I have to say the Adding Locations requirement is a little ridiculous because it will be very hard to find locations that no one else has" -- definitely not true, and that sentiment has usually been a sign in the past of users not really invested in the hobby. There are abandoned locations everywhere and new ones pop up constantly in every locality. This is going to sound like a sarcastic comment, but it isn't in any way. Another easy suggestion is to consider known historic spots in your area. Chances are many of those are not listed in the database because people have just never thought to put them in. But there's certainly nothing wrong with photographing and sticking them in the database at Level 1 for others to enjoy.

The "Adding Locations" comment is enough for me to say NO! We all had to find locations and we actually went out there and did just that. Loads of places to explore and many coming available every day, especially this time of year with all the construction going on, they are everywhere.

not even 10 albums- maybe you live in an area where every single place withing walking distance has been uploaded to the site, but you can still go to them and take pictures.
