Can't Post Pictures or Attachments???

I had two people asking already what happened to their account, that they can't post attachments.

In case you missed it, there is a post at the top of OT, "Announcement", which explains that BF is upgrading the servers and the ability to post attachment will be affected.

Bimmerfest Servers Being Upgraded this Weekend (Potential Downtime)
We will be upgrading the servers that run Bimmerfest.com over this weekend to provide a better browsing experience. The biggest interruption will be attachments being shut off during the transition phase but should be back on within 24-48 hours of the move. There will also be a few software updates that may cause you to get a message that the site is not available right now. These will be happening during off peak hours and should be help to a minimum.

The IP address of the site is changing and may be cached by your browser or computer. If you have any trouble accessing the site, try closing your browser and restarting it. If that does not work, you can try restarting your computer.

We look forward to having this upgrades in place and providing a more speedy browsing experience.

Thank you for bearing with us!

MW,

I tried to send you a PM but I guess since you made a thread it'll be easier and I don't have to crowd my inbox. Anyways I was wondering what happened to my account because I can't seem to post attachments. Any help would be appreciated

Sincerely,

MBS

Excellent timing. I went to post a pic in the E9X section and just figured it was user error. Thanks for this post since I missed the other notice.

I was going to post an attachment that would explain why you can't attach anything, but it didn't work. Don't know why. I'll check with the admins.

Hi 1Dreamer,

You can't post an attachment to explain why we can't post attachment because BF is upgrading the servers for BF. One of the things that are affected are the ability to post attachments because they are upgrading the servers. If you can't post attachment to explain why we can't post attachment you can post a link to that announcement.

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/announcement.php?f=3

That link above will lead to an announcement about the servers upgrade and how it will affect the ability to post attachments. Here's the quote:

I agree. This didn't solve my issue because I still can't post attachments. Maybe you can post an attachment explaining why? I'm a visual learner...

Yes, we were all having fun with this thread. Kind of a shame it's fixed and it has to end. I wanted to ask him 5 more times how to attach something.

For some reason I can not see other people's attachments. All I see is the rectangular frame where they suppose to go, and it is empty. Bryce's last post in "post our cell phone photo" has that. And a few more in PoliSci.

Can somebody post an attachment here to test?

Can you post one here, but leave it in the "attachment thumbnail" and not post the picture enlarged in the post itself?

How about the one in the cell phone thread ? That's still an attatched thumbnail


EDIT: add pic
