Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
So far as I can tell my February submission did not make it through (I did send a confirmation, as advised).  On the assumption that it was the quality that was the problem Iíll resubmit a higher-quality version unless told otherwise,

A reminder too, just in case, not to submit links to images. Make sure your submission is attached to your email as a file!

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
I think that those that were successfully uploaded are in.  From what Iíve been told in email (thank you) my February submission was accepted - but so far as I can tell it hasnít been successfully uploaded even now.  There are still problems, it seems.

Re: Resuming Portrait Submissions - October 30, 2017
Admittedly, I'm a bit behind in the goings on of the new portrait team so forgive me if I've missed something and sound like a broken record here.

Assuming we got our submissions in on time, the estimated upload time for the month's portraits are the last week or two of the month, correct? Not sure if the team is still working on previous months' submissions, though it wouldn't surprise me considering the likely backlog of people's desired submissions during the gallery's downtime.

TL;DR - Checking to see if we should be looking for April's submissions to have been added yet or if patience should continue to be a virtue.

Thanks for the hard work portrait team!

Speaking of which, though. I would like to check in and see how that's going, given it has been a while. Not really intending to rush it, but I am curious how it's going.

I'm curious about this, as well. I'm not sure if I should be looking for my submission now or at the end of June.

Thanks to the portrait team. :)

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.

In reply to evileeyore (msg # 109):

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.
