In September of 2009, a number of modifications and update were made, increasing the application’s feature list. The site made a dramatic update in March of 2010 when it decided to block all users based in China. This decision was made after Chinese users uploaded pornographic material that resulted in more than 500,000 downloads, negatively affecting site performance for all users. At the time, approximately eight out of every 10 images downloaded were pornographic. Since then, Uploadingit has removed all Chinese accounts.
