if you had said it was a blow up ring intex then yes it very likely would collapse. with your situation it is less likely, but possible
as for the metal frame you still need to keep an eye on how many swimmers or on the low side and if they hold on to the rail
your weight distribution of water does not need to be disturbed by hangers on.
water weighs 8 pounds per gal so with your 12000 or so gallons could shift
be carefull and keep an eye on it especially if any of the support leggs are on plain old dirt dirt turns to mudd no matter how hard it was during dry days throw in the weight of the pool with wet dirt and the leggs will start sinking

They say that the pool should be completely even. I dont want to tell you, you have to re-do, but I also don't want to tell you that you shouldn't. Without seeing it, it is hard to say whether or not it would be safe to leave. That being said, attempt to straighten those leaning post, applying something underneath each pole so that they do not sink into the ground further. (which may difficult with the water in)

I personally have put 1/2" slate bricks under each pole post to avoid it sinking into the ground, so it being un-level is not a problem.

Basically only you know what you feel safe doing. I just hope I have helped to give you a solution to the sinking poles issue. If the ground is uneven, even with something under the post, it can still be uneven. It will be hard to get completely even. Ours is off slightly too, but its fine.

Good luck!

There won't be any structural problems and you will notice the difference more than anyone else. If you redo the pool next year it will help to set each leg on a patio brick so it won't settle.
