I like the people at this site, including the fella who created it.

The problem I had a couple years back was I was unable to upload any pics anymore. My first 3 went up fine, since then, no more.

The site clearly states "No images more than 5 M" - All mine are less than 3 M. I don't get it.

If that were addressed, and the damn noise that plays everytime a page is changed, this site would be a bit better.

Until then, I'll try back in a year or two...

Slim - I know nothing about a noise when the page is changed.  Sounds like you have malware or something on your PC. 

I don't know about pic posting problems.  You can only load pictures on your own personal profile page, and you must be logged in correctly.  I suggest you try the main Aimoo help section, there is a big message board just for help for Aimoo system users.  This is just one of the many sites on the Aimoo system.

 I can confirm a chiming noise when you have mail in your inbox. Once your mail is read it goes away.

Regarding  "the damn noise that plays everytime a page is changed", I don't get any noises when changing pages.  Nor do I get them when I have mail. I just get a flashing mail icon on the right of the main page. 

Possibly the user has a profile setting for audibly announce mail messages or something, and then has selected to subscribe to a thread so they get email updates every time someone adds a reply to the thread. Are you accessing this through a regular browser like Firefox on a normal computer or through a web-phone or similar?

 I've just posted a bunch of pictures and can attest to the difficulty.  There are particular shots that fail over and over again.  But I find that if I change something nominal, sometimes the comment, sometimes the filename, and if necessary, sometimes the picture itself, it will then go through first time no problem.  Sometimes I'll crop just a few pixels off one side or another, and that does the trick.

Good point, file names that are valid in your computer operating system may not be valid on the Aimoo servers.  Also some uploading scripts have a real problem with files deeply nested in a directory structure or from fake share points.  Both Windows and the MAC OS now allow you to commit all sorts of sins, but only on your own computer.

I suggest renaming files to simple names without funny symbols in them, and NO periods or comers.  Then putting in a sub directory off the root of your drive C:\uploads\  or G:\pics\ 
By using a clean file name that is close to the root of the drive you are less likely to have upload errors.

"My Pictures" or "My Documents" in windows is NOT a drive and not near the root of your disk drive.  Make a new directory off the root of a drive, or use a USB stick.

You may also want to set your computer operating system so that when exploring your computer it shows file name extensions. 

If your browser thinks you are uploading C:\uploads\picture1 and the real name is C:\uploads\picture1.jpg it may well fail.  So try setting your operating system so that it does not hide file extensions. 

Sometimes I see people with file names like picture1.jpg.png but the png is hidden because their computer operating system is set to hide file extentions, so they think they are uploading picture1.jpg and in reality they are attempting to upload a .png file.

Sorry for calling it a "damn noise", I meant "god damn chime" - Anyway, I renamed pic's, made sure they were jpg's, I did this, I did that, etc. but no luck and I don't have much time to talk about it.

Further, don't pin me as an illiterate pc user either as I have my own website. I know a few things about uploading a picture. My 6 year old can do it.

We all know Aimoo is a joke, with the "pretty" colors, the complex buttons, the navigation issues along with teal backdrop, it reminds me of AOL. Anyway, I'm not messing with it anymore.

I wont miss anything, and certainly wont be missed...

See ya....

 Sorry for that.  The teal or light blue background was a softening of look from the orignal green which was adopted because the prior board from which it took over was dark green.  The colors, along with the sunny yellow were meant to remind you of the beach, and yet still leave the black text readable and clear.  There are very few colors that work well behind black type, that's why most message boards are just black on white.
I was not attempting to paint you as an illiterate pc user.  Just attempting to offer general suggestions to your rather unspecific problems. 

True, Aimoo has all sorts of programing errors and problems.  I experience many of them because the board management tools are often just broken or work in counter intuitive ways.
I still don't know what chime you are talking off.  I use Firefox on a windows PC, and have also checked out the site with IE, but do not get the chime you are talking about.

Sorry if you can't get your profile pics sorted.  It is only in the last few years, since Aimoo tried to make their services more "social networking", that user profiles have allowed pictures. Possibly your profile record has become corrupt. Maybe Aimoo help can fix that or you can just start a new profile.  I don't manage user profiles at all and cannot help you fix one if it has problems.

That said, this site is not really about pictures but words.  That may be deliriously old fashioned in this day and age of internet 2.0.  We don't have images in posts, nor avitars on posts. There are plenty of sites where people showoff on the internet, this is not one of them. On these other sites people post all sorts of pictures, sometimes pictures that are not even theirs. If posting elsewhere you can post a link in the approprate section for links to thong pictures.

 One way we keep it real, on this site, is by making people type something that makes sense.  It is difficult to plagiarize an approprate response in a thread, so mostly what people type is at least their own words, even if they are telling a tall tale. 

Sorry to see you go. All the best, good luck with your thing on the Gulf coast.

There is no error message, but the photo has NOT been uploaded.

Thong board is a Diamond Forum.
Photo upload has always been flaky, especially with larger files.

You can upload or post photos in your own profile, but not on this message board.

 Pinkstring, there is a cap on max image volume.  I found this out by trading messages with a user who had many photos posted.  The total is 5MB which you can see your current volume and remaining % available in Control Panel > Manage Images.  With current cameras and cell phones increasing image quality, it also increases image file size.  You could easily use up 20% or more with just one image.  Try reducing the resolution, cropping, or posting a screenshot instead of the actual image. Each worked for me.

Re:Problem uploading pictures

If you are having problems uploading photos I don't have an easy answer.

However here are some suggestions.

Try making your images smaller:  Some modern cameras take high res-photos that result in large file sizes. Try compressing the file to a smaller format and size.

Try using a different file type: Some people have better success with jpg and others with png.

Try putting the pictures to be uploaded into a location with a simple file path. Your operating system may allow a file path that is too complex or uses characters that will not work for a web based upload.
If in doubt, put them in the root of a USB stick that is addressed through a local drive letter, for example J:\picture1.jpg

Try a different browser: Some people have better success with Firefox or Chrome. 

Try a different device. Some people report inability to upload from tablets or phones, but the upload works OK from their PC.

I tried JM's advise with no success.  I eventually gave up and looked for other options.  

I ended up hosting pictures on https://vgy.me/ and using the http option to link them to my Aimoo account.  So far it appears that they allow 3rd party hosting for free.  I initially tried Photobucket, but they charge for this option. It adds a step in the process but at least now I can post some images.

This Aimoo platform is seriously out-of-date and lacking in features that modern forum platforms have (e.g. uploads that work, mobile compatibility, a search feature that works, links & images in posts, etc...). It's really time to migrate this board to something newer. I offered to do the migration and hosting but never got a response from the board admin...
Perhaps if enough speak up, something will be done.

Hi sprockettooth,

I have read VegasThongs' post, but I just wanted to share my frustration with somebody from Aimoo.
Maybe it's a little bit naive to think they will fix this item.
But the more people complain the more change that something will be done (I guess.....).
It must be some syntax error in their software I think; uploading a picture shoulden't be that difficult to program I think.
Maybe I will use the vgy-trick sometime, if the bug will not be fixed.

MB27 - It appears you were trying to upload a batch of photos, using a java based system.

I would suggest:
(a) Uploading them to a file sharing site first. 
(b) Then provide that link, to your profile, one at a time.
(c) Using a simple browser like Firefox or Chrome on a PC, not trying to upload from a phone.

Keeping it simple like this seems to work for most people.

Further support can be found on the Aimoo help forums.  This is just one of the message boards Aimoo hosts.
