Trouble posting a photo

Have been trying to post a photo on home cooking of guaje pods the little wheel just keeps grindin and grinding away, the message gets posted which is begining to be redundant but no pix. What is up?

  1. I have that problem when the file is bigger than 2mb. Could it be that?

      No bigger than any other I have posted.

    2. We're switching over to a different image uploader and you may experience outages for the next day or so. We apologize for the inconvenience.

        It's March 19th (3 days later) and, out of 8 photos I have attempted to post (4 in a new topic, 4 in posts), not a single photo has worked. All of the photos are in the range 25kb - 35kb.

        Sounds like the old photo uploader was far superior (inasmuch as it uploaded photos).

          I am back to using Photobucket

      2. Random photo attachment test...

          I like that in Safari, when the photo attachment thing fails, at least the stupid Ajax widget quits twirling. Maybe just using good old HTTP POST (directly, with the old-fashioned page refresh and/or 500 error) would be a better idea than screwing around with latest-and-greatest bits that do not work. It's easier to debug, at least.

          So far, Mozilla and Safari bomb out; I'll try Internet Exploiter at the lab.

          Oh, also, it seems like the document manipulation for the inline post-editing thingy produces strange results in Safari -- when I look at the post after editing, it's been cloned inside of itself. Happily, upon viewing the thread separately, this seems to go away.

        2. Does anyone know if this problem has been resolved? I tried to post a picture today, but still couldn't....

            Maybe the big outage today was for debugging.

            Let's try posting another photo...

          2. BITCHEN!!!

            Problem solved!! At least on my end.

            Thanks, droids! ;-)
