Whats up with WC's site not uploading stuff......

Monday, March 16, 2009 by G3mpi3 | Discussion: Skinning

Okay so, I don't know If i'm the only person with this problem but I've tried submitting 5 skins today and they are nowhere to be found....I know it could take up to 5 days (according to WC) but usually they appear in my gallery so I know I submitted them correctly. Also, I get a lot of errors from wincustomize after I submit a skin that say, "error loading this page. Use your browsers back button or visit WC's homepage." Maybe I am just paranoid and should just wait and not worry about it, but I figured I throw a post out here and see If anyone else is having problems. Thanks!

Something must be working as it should.
There are three new entries (uploaded today) in your gallery - [link]
(plus one still in moderation)

ahhh thanks for your help everyone. I am such a n00b, I didn't see that you could view the skins in moderation or the ones that are being processed. Turns out all of them are there, I just didn't see them. I'm sorry for being an idiot on this one haha. Thanks again, I appreciate the quick responses. G3

I was just wondering if anyone could clear up the difference between when a skin is in moderation and in processing. Im sorry to bother everyone again, but I was just curious. Thanks.

 

Oh and snowman..........this IS the best place for chicks hahaha

"processing" means the skin is going into the database(should only take a few seconds)

"moderation" means the skin is in the database and waitng for a moderator to process it(could be up to 5 days)

and G3, it's not a bother

I am also having trouble uploading. I have been trying for 3 days to upload a Xion skin and a wall.  If I try to upload by going to my gallery and summit a skin I get a message that says there was trouble uploading my skin try again later... Later never works.
 
If I try this link https://www.wincustomize.com/upload2.aspx I get the same message
 
If I try this link  https://www.wincustomize.com/upload.aspx   I get a window that says my upload was successful and will take up to 5 days in moderation but it never shows that it is in moderation nor does it show up in my gallery.
 I have PMed a mod but so far I haven't received an answer.

Not forgetting that due to a site bug skins are sometimes in moderation but don't appear on the user page...

 And what would cause a skin to not upload? A couple times I've gotten the message "upload failed", and those skins never would go no matter how many times I tried. But then, within minutes, a different skin on the next upload worked. What could have been wrong? The skin or the site?

there also appears to be a time consideration element for various activities related to the site. I find the site slow and unresponsive before 8:00AM EDT.

I would also use this address: https://www.wincustomize.com/upload.aspx/ to upload blinds. The aspx2 seems to be buggy and has been for months and months, and why it is, I don't know, you'd think.....

Don't quote me on this, but I do believe that we're running daily backups early in the morning, when (US) traffic is low.

Well i went through all the bull**** of uninstalling flash 10 and reinstalled flash 9. I still get the same thing.  After the window that says my upload went through I get another window that says my upload failed.. So that wasn't the problem.. I'll just wait and not upload anything here untill they get the site working right.

There is a problem with uploading, but it's one that is only happening to a limited amount of people therefore making it harder to track down.
