Did you just upload it? Does the photo appear in your profile / gallery? Does the image appear if you, for example, enter a contest?

Sometimes their servers are wonky and you have to wait, I think. If patience doesn't get you anywhere, there is contact information at the bottom of the homepage.

VB doesn't really seem to care about support through this forum, despite their claims.

That sounds about right. I don't use Viewbug but have been here on PT long enough, and I haven't yet seen anyone from Viewbug come on here and respond to their site users' questions. They seem to be directing users to this forum, who are welcome to participate here of course, but they don't seem to be providing support here. My impression is although they do offer free contests their purpose seems to be to make money from users paying to enter some of the contests or to sell/license photos thru them.
