Can't add photos to posts - Uploader fails

Posted 09 January 2013 - 07:56 AM

Title says it all. Its been at least 3 days I've seen this on every browser and both my Mac and PC.
I see some new posts that sometimes have images, so I don't know what the deal is.
But I know I'm not the only one to have this issue as others have mentioned it but not created a thread specifically bringing it to anyone's attention.

I never really liked uploading images to DIC directly, I prefer to use imgur.com and use the IMG tag here.

As a work around try something like:

I believe the upload feature was disabled a few days ago in an effort to fight off the malware attacks on the server. It will no doubt be enabled again once that situation has been resolved.

As for new posts having images, I would guess that those are external; not attached to the posts.

Different strokes. I've always preferred to upload to DIC because that way the images are the responsibility of the site for as long as the site remains alive. Using third-party sites adds a weak link. If imgur.com changes policy, gets bought or whatever there could be dozens of my posts and tutorial that are image heavy that suddenly become worthless.

I agree to use DIC itself for self tutorials and blog posts. But for one off help threads, I just used Imgur.com

I guess I kind of feel guilty putting more burden on DIC. I've been here since 2007 and I guess I still think of DIC as a "lean startup" even though it's gotten huge now. :P
