 ''Thanks dd32 for the added context of the error that made me look into
 the error message itself even closer! (There were two different things
 that happened and I wasn't sure what was going on at first myself.)''

 Turns out that due to a bug, we inadvertantly allowed users to submit more
 than one photo at a time on a single form submission. The backend doesn't
 handle this; hence the error. This also explains h2ofilter's side of
 things since they did upload 5 photos and could reasonably think those
 were still awaiting moderation.

 I'm closing this issue as fixed:
 - We no longer permit browsers to allow multiple files (as of 2022-02-01
 in [18392-dororg])
 - The attribution for the photo in the ticket is correct (as explained in
 my [comment:4 first comment]), and the "unknown" was related to the multi-
 file submission that generated an error.
 - The 5 other submissions claimed to be waiting in the queue were actually
 uploaded, but weren't handled by the system, so they don't really exist.

 I've removed h2ofilter's submission that generated the error. An email was
 sent that indicated as much. We encourage the individual resubmission of
 the photos that were attempted (other than the one already approved).
