Hi! Getting my profile set up and can't seem to upload a picture. When I try to upload from my computer the arrows just spin endlessly, and if I try to upload from a URL it says "Server Cannot Be Contacted." Is anyone else having this problem?

Thanks! Still working with this. Now I can select from my computer, but when I hit "done" it doesn't change (and won't give me a reason). I did notice that Photobucket is now down for maintenance, so maybe there was an issue - I use them on all of my forums and never have a problem. I'll try tomorrow.

Simple solution, would be to save the photo from photobucket to to your PC, then upload to ww2f.

There are size limits on photos. Perhaps the picture file is too large?

Best Regards,

I believe that returns a different error message, and not the "Server Cannot Be Contacted." error message that he has received.

 

"Server Cannot Be Contacted." makes it sound like photobucket was down at the time he was trying to change his photo.

GroFaz knows there is an issue with photos and is looking to resolve it."

 

Really... Was there a note to users- because i spent some serious time try to post pictures of some book covers i promised to deliver...made my inferiority complex worse..

Not to mention all the Albert Hing pictures i worked so hard to upload and then lost after the server/whatever transfer.

Did manage to post that ghost/not picture in the Mysterious thread though.
