I tried uploading two different images into my profile, both of them from my hard drive.  They are http://www.sharpcypher.com/images/CosmosKing.gif and http://www.sharpcypher.com/images/CosmosKing.jpg.  For both images, the popup box just disappeared, and the images didn't show up.  As a test, I uploaded a bigger image, http://www.sharpcypher.com/images/Nodame.jpg.  That one worked fine.  I then tried adding the smaller images with another bigger one, http://www.sharpcypher.com/images/BillyGlares.jpg.  When that finished, there was another copy of the Nodame image, the BillyGlares image, and nothing else.  I've since deleted the two Nodame images.

Now, whenever I try to upload either of the CosmosKing images, the Nodame image shows up in the confirmation dialog.  If I click the Save button, neither image shows up in my gallery.

Finally, whenever I click one of my successfully uploaded images in my gallery, the page that comes up show 4 images, including two copies of the Nodame image, even though I've deleted both of them and they don't show up in my gallery page.

Images must be 100x100 pixels or larger. While I can see users wanting small images for their icons, we do it mostly as a protective measure to prevent people from putting crappy images in the wiki galleries. Sorry, we should probably put some better alerts in there.

I thought it might be something like that, which is why I tested different sizes.  I'm a web programmer by trade, you see.  I would definitely suggest some better alerts.  Also, uploading those smaller images appears to break the process a bit.  You might want to look into that, or maybe find some way to differentiate between images used for wikis and images used for forum posts and icons.  Finally, can you delete those Nodame images out of my gallery, please?
Overall, the site looks and works very nice, especially for a brand-new venture.  I hope it works out well for everybody involved.  Keep up the good work.

That explains an issue I had earlier. I just now have to find a larger version. Thanks.

I'm having a different kind of uploading issue - I can't even access the browser to upload an image in the first place. When I click on any upload button, I get this.

I use Firefox 3 and my Flash is up-to-date. I do have adblock and noscript, but both are set to allow this site to do whatever it wants. I also realize that I'm probably just doing something wrong and it should be really obvious, but... It isn't. Not to me.

Ok I tried to add some images to the wolf rains gallery. One of them was supposed to be a little stuffed Kiba. But instead it put in the picture from my gallery that I am using. And now I cant delete it. Help please :(

There are supposed to be error messages that tell you what went wrong. But when we switched to the new uploader code the error messages did not get put in.  This is on my list for next week

ARGH!!! I also have uploading issues. I'm new here (can you tell?) and I thought, "Oh, sweet! An uber cool anime website!" So I make a profile and I went straight to adding a pic. OK, so I try to add a pick and when its "done" uplaoding, nothing pops up. No alerts. Nothing. So I thought I'd check my image gallery. Did you guess? Thats right, nothing. So I read the first few posts of this thread and tried to add a bigger pic. Still nothing. What's up? Whats the problem here? Why don't any of my pictures show up?
