Yesterday evening (GMT+1) I posted an image for the O'Kudos game. Normally, within half an hour, I get a post that the image is accepted (haven't had one declined yet since geekmod became operational). As I could not find it by manually typing URLs (....boardgamegeek.com/bggimages/pic115xxx.jpg), I assumed something went wrong uploading the image. So I uploaded the image again. No indication that something went wrong here, the usual page that the image was submitted came up. Now (10 hours later) I still did not receive notification whether the imgae is accepted or declined. I know 10 hours is nothing before geekmod times, but now a lot of images that have been submitted since, are already accepted (or declined). So I wonder if something went wrong on the bgg site of the connection.

Re: Image disappeared, no message wheter accepted or declined
So it's not just me then.
It happened to an image I've been trying to upload to the Click-Chek entry too.
I thought something might be up because it never registered as a pending picture in my profile.

I didn't check that at the time, but indeed, there are no images pending.

Well, I uploaded the picture again this evening and this time it got through smoothly.

It may just have been a temporary glitch.zombie

Re: Image disappeared, no message whether accepted or declin
Aldie, might this issue have something to do with either a single quote (') or slash (/) in the caption? Last time I tried to submit I changed the caption, and now it (finally) shows as pending immediately after submission.

I uploaded an image with the following caption.

Glory to Rome is not just for adults. Kids can play too!

The first time it was immediately after another submission but I only ended up with one picture in my pending queue. I thought maybe I had messed something up so I uploaded it again with the same caption with the same results.

I uploaded the image a third time but without the trailing exclamation point and it did end up in my pending queue so I'm leaning towards some part of the upload process failing when the caption contains non-alphanumerics. Maybe when it goes to store it in the db, the SQL statement fails trying to insert the caption. Just a guess though.

Ahhhhh *HERE* you all are!

I thought I might not be the only one seeing image submissions dissapear without any approval/declines notification. I have submitted several pictures over the past few days and many have just...vanished.

One was submitted twice and never showed up. A second was submitted this morning and is AWOL as well.

Any idea of what is going on? Is it the filename format? Certain Text in the caption? An intermittant glitch??

Inquiring minds want to know.

Scott

Re: Image disappeared, no message whether accepted or declin
Funny, I was about to ask about this too when this thread turned up.

Just today submitted two pics. Never pending. No message back. Just poof, there it goes.

In this case my captions included apostrophes. I'm not sure I can get around it - the pics come from a variant of a game, and the title has an ' in it!!! So it sounds like either I don't mention the variant, or else my pics go poof and disappear. Aldie, any idea what's up, and whether it can be fixed soon?

Just tried again. Same result. Picture disappears, no "pending" pictures in my user info, no nothing. My description has a single quote and double quotes in it.

It looks like just a matter of properly escaping the caption when inserting into the database...hopefully that's all that it is!!! I'll have to hang onto my two pictures that need ' in them for a while more.

Hey--me too! My caption included an apostrophe, I'll try again without that.

Well, lo and behold, I took out the apostrophe and it worked, I'm showing an image pending!!! I had submitted it two times before and nothing showed up.

Now, if it gets accepted, I'm sure someone will correct me on my improper use of punctuation. laugh

In that case, you can mark Bug #704 as fixed. It's currently still "NEW" even though I entered it at least 12 days ago. Should I stop reporting bugs via the Bugs feature, and report them all here instead?
