Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

As usual for TLF, the response to this has been overwhelming. 1 picture.

September has been downloaded 500+ times though, it seems easier to take than give.

I don't get it, I uploaded a pic to PotM and saw it next to the Evora and Eclat pictures with a TLF banner applied? Is it in the wrong section somewhere?

It lied to me though.... it said the first attempt wasn't a valid picture so I did it again but it worked both times... :getmecoat:

Gave me grief too. Image does not appear to be valid, is more or less what it said. Yet I see it in the gallery......weird.

From Support:

Hello,

I can't duplicate, but it could be the image they're uploading.. Can you have a user having the problem upload the image, and I would need the actual image file where I can download it, so I can test with it?

I've seen an issue before where certain cameras do a little bit of a funky JPG.. Another thing to have them try.. Open the image on their PC with Paint.. All they have to do is resave the image as a JPG with a different filename.. Does it upload after doing that?

If so, that's the problem, and again, I'd like to get the original file, so I can look at it and see what might be causing it to error out like that. Rare problem, but if we can fix it, that would be best.

So can one of you email me an image so I can send it to them. Ta.

Well there is certainly a list of glitches with this procedure. My image posted and now it's gone as well. This link should be a large enough image.

Let me know if there is a problem or if I need to do anything further.

Uploaded the same image again, as before no warning messages. If it lasts more than 24 hours without disappearing or going screwy it may be fixed, otherwise will try another.

I am not a Twitter or Facebook etc. man so really haven`t a clue what I am looking at, but is my understanding correct when I say that looks like Evo magazine themselves have posted at the Dec pic of the month link in the Forum front page . There is a place for Comments and a place for Reactions, and in there is a post saying via Twitter and BackType-

@evomagazine Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! http://bit.ly/huvuiJ

If it is then Wow! :thumbsup::animier:

or have I misunderstood what I`m looking at and some spotty geek in an attic has just made my day inadvertently? :veryangry::censored:
