Problems uploading photos Is anyone else having problems with uploading photos? My last post I posted I tried to upload a photo and kept getting an error message. I tried a different browser but still the same, same error message. Have you also had the same error?

Yes, I've been getting a runtime error all morning. It's good to know it's not just me.

You must reduce the size. It happened to me and when I reduced the size all was well.

I'm very aware of the limit of the uploading of files, I always upload small size files around about 200Kb so its nothing to do with the size I'm uploading. I know if you try uploading a file size of a 1MB file it won't upload.

@kevin1877uk I had problems with the normal size and I had to reduce it further.

Yes there is a problem and I'[m sure its being worked on, sometimes it is easy and other times, no photo. Patience, my friend! And I've had to make they smaller to get them to stick.

Yes, I know Marylin patience, you will know I only upload small files and now even smaller files now, never upload large files, Maybe it's just a glitch and they are working on it.

@PainsOnSlate I few have said they are seeing an error, the only error I've seen is when I tried to upload and sometimes I get a time out error when commenting.

We had photo problems last week, may be that the glitch is back. I would suggest to leave a Personal Message to Alex, this is what I usually do and this is what they prefer.

I've seen a few people that uploaded photos to their posts, but nothing here, I did try to upload for the post seeing if it was just me, but it was still the same. Glad I'm not the only one.

I've seen some people are and some people which aren't. I'm just wondering if it's server based problems they are having.

@syeow1 I know it doesn't seem to be affecting everyone, but that hard to say seeing that we don't know what file sizes people are uploading.

Sometimes I had to upload thrice. But I thought it was just because of my internet connection.

Not totally sure with not being here that much, but if they have it looks like it's not working now.

@KristenH Think I've sorted it, I've reduced the file size further from 200KB down to 55KB and it seems to work.

Sorry everyone, I was away yesterday and was thus not aware of the problem. I've let Bugs know so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I haven't had an error message, but I have had to try more than once. The possible glitch I've had this evening was a comment made this morning by another my,otter on my post was reappearing as a new comment in my notifications. I thought that was a bit odd.

Today I made two discussions. I can't upload an image to one of them. Now it seems it is my turn to have this error. Hopefully this glitch will be solved soon. I always like to have an image for my discussion.
