Hey. :)

Is there any update on portrait submissions?

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
You should be able to see submissions to the female and neutral galleries. Unfortunately, there's some kind of coding error going on with the male gallery, so this month's and last month's submissions for that section have been processed but not yet successfully uploaded. The team is working to resolve the situation, and may have a workaround; as soon as there's an update on these circumstances, we'll make an announcement here.

I don't actually see anything new in any of the female galleries, don't look at neutral enough to tell, though.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
A little help, please.

I submitted a portrait on 5/31/18 that would have been very decidedly female. My understanding is that it should have been left in the Inbox to be processed during this last upload. Definitely not in any of the galleries. Just went through them all.

Is there a delay in new portraits popping into the galleries?

No emails about it even in my Junk Folder. No watermark or other attribution on the image. Nothing inappropriate. I didn't size it down, but I beleive that's part of the process it goes through after submission. Should have been high enough quality to size down, I believe. Not a duplicate of something already in the galleries. Username in the email text.

Did I forget or overlook something else that was needed?

And that post above is why I've always felt that those rejected and accepted should be told.  And if rejected, why.

Please bear in mind that the portrait volunteers (like everybody who works for the site) perform their function for free, and in their own spare time.  How they allocate that time is entirely up to them.

Sure, absolutely right.  But it can't hurt to make polite suggestions.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
It isn't a huge issue if it was rejected, but it seems to me there could be some upload issue we aren't aware of yet. I'm less sure, but I also didn't seem to see any new portraits after the upload. Usually, these would show up at the end of the previous images, unless something has changed. I did go through literally every image in every gallery looking for what I submitted though-- which took a hot minute. ^_^ I know Male portraits were stored separately from Female and Neutral once upon a time, but I'm not sure if this is still the case and, if not, if whatever is affecting the Male gallery might also actually be affecting them all. Either way, it's worth bringing up for a check, even if it's just to make sure all the volunteer hours aren't being wasted on images that aren't updating in the end.

That is still the case.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
I see that after the notice of portrait submissions being closed this thread is alive and well.  Any chance the notice can be updated if they are open or not?

I'm confused.

Thank you all for everything you do!  It is my favorite playground.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Yeah; themost recent time they've said they updated I didn't see anything in any of the female galleries.  I've been waiting since Feb/March for an earlier submission to pop in.  It's mostly people checking up on it...

Ahh ok, thanks for the update.  We do have like a million options here but I do struggle with some of the cultural diversity.  We are a bit spoiled though ;)

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
We are still on hold. We have an issue apparently with permissions to upload images. We are attempting to get an answer from Jace but he has been absent for a bit. As soon as we have this figured out we will have a very large image dump (March, April, May, June, July and August submissions).

So hang tight. There is still a pilot in the cockpit.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017

Roger that.  I'll sit on my possible submissions until I know yall are caught up and the queue is clear.  I've not no interest in piling on work if the system is effectively down.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
So our problem was with a sudden change to the system that no one saw coming or could explain. It "may" be fixed. We are doing some tests to verify that we are able to upload once again.

So you may make submissions as you like. They will just continue to stack up in the "in box" if you will until we are able to upload them once more. When we get the uploads going again we will let you know.

Thanks for the heads up and the suggestion of continuing submissions. I'd known something was wrong a while before it showed up in discussion here and went the same route as Shadewolfe: stop and let you all catch up. Nice to hear you feel like you're making progress. Thanks for the hard work!!!
