Just an update. You may experience some downtime with ballsgohere.com , but be assured your balls are safe. I'm going to complete migration in the next few days.

It also is worth mentioning that a private message is more appropriate when enquiring about BGH. Though I initially set it up to aid WTF members in posting images here, we are not officially affiliated with WTF.com. It doesn't really bother me. I just don't know if my bosses would like me moonlighting.

Given the flaky state of ballsgohere.com lately, I decided to post pictures as attachments. The first image file uploaded fine. The second file gave me a "The uploaded file is empty" error on my first try. My second attempt uploading the second file succeeded. However, every attempt I have made to upload more files always results in "The uploaded file is empty". The files are NOT empty. They are perfectly good JPEG files. WTF gives?

(I would have posted a screen capture of the error message, which also contains the text "넨ቬᴐሴ", but ...)

Could you tell me the file size of the failing images?

The first image I tried was successful and it was 30,459 bytes.
The second image failed on the first attempt, but then succeeded and was 36,661 bytes.
Two other images that I tried repeatedly and always fail are 25,952 and 76,258 bytes.

I know size can not be the issue, because both gehtfuct and PurpleSlurple were able to attach larger images recently to the Random Pic Thread.

The following is my most recent post in the Random Pic Thread:
The third image is the 25,952 byte one that would not attach, so I uploaded it to www.ballsgohere.com instead.

Um ... Yes. That option was checked by default.
OK. I unchecked it and saved.
Testing ...

I can also set it to not use it globally, there are occasionally problems with it...

Flash won't last long anyway...

For me the likes bar shows up like this now, is this supposed to happen?
The 'disagree' is actually a like, and the 'like' and 'lol' somehow got tangled.
Also, the turkey is now the disagree, for some reason.
I'm using Chrome on a Win8.1 pc.

Do a forced refresh load of the page.

We recently optimized our sprite sheet, so the positions changed, meaning the html will have changed too, unless the browser has cached the old sprite sheet or html.

I was looking at post today and where the ratings are I saw that LOL was kind of cut off, a different sad face was there than the current one, then i also saw a RIP tombstone...what kind of weird as glitch was that? A test? Or were those old rating types?

Well obviously heh...I was just wondering what it was :)
We updated a sprite containing the ratings.. I'll be renaming it in the future to force a reload for all, but I forgot to do it this time...

I'll also be updating another main one which contains some stale images from previous designs.

I didn't get this issue. Is it because I always browse the internetz in stealth mode so I have no cache files?
