I believe that most of the long-timers still have 10 uploads. Elite Members who have a record of meeting site standards have unlimited uploads. I can recall days when some such members uploaded 50 or more shots. The key point is that such instances are relatively rare. Most Elites are not abusing their privileges.

The RP Staff initially imposed the limits on contributors who had poor success rates meeting standards, especially those that were frequently uploading to the old limit of 10. As time went on, the limits were expanded to include all new members. The obvious reason is screener workload. As Chris Kilroy has stated a number of times here on the forums, the vast majority of RP uploads are screened by just two people. If every contributor were allowed to upload 5 or 10 each day, the existing staff just would not be able to handle it.

My RP stuff is here.
