I noticed that all the images I uploaded yesterday only show up as "Original" and "Square" in the image galleries.

Example: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/299158

I don't think anyone wants to see the original size when browsing the gallery like this.

Will this be fixed?

"original" begins at my normal default size rather than full for me (which is sort of helpful).

I noticed this with two images when I was thumbing box covers yesterday, but only those two. I was waiting to see a wider pattern so I did not record which ones.

I think perhaps there is something more that may be wrong with these images. When I look at the ones stuck with this error, they also look to me somewhat more grainy and washed out than others you have been submitting recently.

Is it an error during upload that would go away if you deleted and resubmitted? It is almost as if even visually we can see that some information is missing.

Or is there anything you did different to process these before submitting?

The images are pretty much the same as the other ones I uploaded before. This didn't only affect me but also other uploading around that time.

Any images that were uploaded between the following 2 were affected:

2008-02-08 18:32:35 (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/299066)
and
2008-02-09 05:22:47 (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/299243)

So many good photos among them that folks will never open or thumb because of this.

As it seems to have been an issue with the uploader sw it would be great if this could be fixed from the admin side.

Re: Image upload only creating
I've encountered another series with this problem. I did not probe the true start/stop numbers, but they are around

http://boardgamegeek.com/image/300500

which curiously has some comments below it that the image HAD been correct earlier.

This one has an upload date of 2/12/08

These three Blokus 3D images also show the problem:

The size you see above is not available on the target page.

I remember your pic showing up with the proper size choices above it - I thumbed it.

Your pic is affected by a different site bug though. The series I pointed out never had the resized images generated. Your pic got them created and they are still in the system. Check it out:
http://boardgamegeek.com/image/300500?size=small

It's just that the "links" are gone and the default got reset.
Which doesn't make it less aggravating.
