I would not be against the addition of a "caption missing" rejection.
-Me too.

Without some context (beyond what's provided in the required fields) a photo is meaningless. Is it that difficult to write a sentence or two? If it's so unimportant that you can't fathom a sentence or two, why the hell did you even bother to take the photograph in the first place? (Let alone edit it and post it.)

A photo with no caption rarely sees the light of day on my computer (beyond the thumbnail); I tend to skip right past them.

Your efforts show, Doug, and are appreciated.
