Contest trouble
Printer-friendly version

I successfully uploaded the pictures but there was no 'tag' section. I am not sure how to make sure they get submitted for the contest. Also under image it says 'browse' not 'choose photo' as is indicated on the instructions. Is there something I am doing wrong?

Thank you

Yeah I'm screwed...

I entered a few photos and I didn't see the tag option, and I haven't entered the 'contest2010a' tag.  I'm not sure my photos qualify now.

Sincere Apologies...

...for the photo contest confusion and glitches.  The tag field option disappeared this morning as I was troubleshooting the photo glitch.  It's back now.  The 'choose file' vs 'browse' actually depends on which browser you're using.  Will clarify in the instructions. 

The biggest glitch is that the full size images are not viewable on photo pages. This stopped working about a week ago and I've been troubleshooting ever since. Hoped Sunday's server move would help, but it hasn't.  I feel like it's unfair to judge photos based on small preview images only, so I am extending the photo contest deadline by at least a week (depends how seen I can get the glitch fixed).  As Koreabridge's way of saying 'sorry', prize money has been doubled to W400,000 and each entrant can now enter up to 12 photos total. 

Will post to this thread as soon as the glitch is fixed and a revised deadline in announced.

I wish I knew.  I've continued to troubleshoot, but have not made much progress. Photos are getting uploaded to the server and preview size images are being created, but for some reason they are not visible on the page for each photo or sometimes on the gallery pages. Again, sorry for the inconvenience.  Hoping to have this fixed asap, perhaps we need a visit from the Seollal Fairy

 Looks like things are finally fixed.  Most uploaded photos are now visible on the full size pages. About the last dozen uploads or so didn't seem to take, so those people will need to edit those pages and re-upload their pix (again sorry for the extra work).

My pics

Hi. I've uploaded my photos twice, but they still haven't showed. I saved them 1200 pixels long. Is that too big? Shall I upload them again?

Uploading Issues

Hmmmm, even if the photos are larger than 1200pixels, they should be automatically resized.  The only reason you might have upload issues is if they are larger than 5MB.  You might also run into problems if you're using an old browser like MSIE6.  It's strange though because you successfully uploaded several photos last week.  What actually happens when you try to upload them?  Do you get any particular error message or just get brought back to a blank create/photo page?
