FYI, There's still something odd going on with your site, are you blocking some IP ranges? Or maybe embarq are firewalling it?

I can ping it from home (219.89.144.198) but I can't get an http connect using a browser, telnet or wget.

Same from 222.154.230.198, good ping, but no http connect.

But I can get to it via our leased line at work (210.54.253.5) (http and ping)

I've got no comments on the actual site as I've not looked at it yet (the http connect I got was at the command line from an network appliance machine.)

Cheers, Me.

Thanks for the reply on those duplicate entries error messages..Couldnt recreate them on this end so you guys spotting it was a big help.

down for me too
08/19/2006 06:25:59 AM · #4
Urrr, It appears to be down.

Nothing on that IP is responding currently, pop, http, https, pop3. Me thinks it's fallen off the web, with a quiet little thump. :-)

I uploaded yesterday with no problem. :)

I sent an email to the accepted picture list, but not sure if anyone reads it. I noticed that in the case where there was more then one page of pictures (ie wildlife/animals) that some thumbnails showed on both pages some on either, and it seemed to load randomly for each page.

For example, it would show my picture
a) on page one
b) on page one AND on page two
c) on page two
d) neither on page one or two.

My best guess is that it randomly fills the thumbnails each time, however it doesn't take into account the pictures shown on the previous page.

I'm getting the following error after entering title and keywords and hitting the "Proceed" button:

Error Executing Database Query.


Invalid argument value: Duplicate entry '127' for key 1
 
The error occurred in D:\ ...

Etc....

I'll send you the rest via PM.

Are you going to have FTP eventually?

Ready for another round of upload testimg for those of you with a few minutes of spare time.

Thanks

just a reminder this is in beta testing and as a result we expect a multitude of potential problems...

Firefox works fine along with IE, we test with both, seems in firefox several have reported some featuren not working as expected, Javascript should be enabled as well.

Expansion for acception for members other than USA is being incorporated as well.

Editing account info is up and coming as well as your ability to edit and manage your photodats, of course when the site goes live deleting approved photos will move a photo from active to inactive for a specific period of time to allow anyone who may have purchased the photo to redeem the purchase.

You should definitely set up an FTP upload process, plus multiple HTML uploads.

Get rid of the requirement to keyword immediately upon upload -- sometimes that has to be/is best done later; especially if you aren't going to parse pre-entered ones from the IPTC fields. Provide a way to correct/update keywords.

Didn't see keywording instructions -- I added them separated by commas. Ran out of space for one photo with fewer than 15 words. Will you take multiple-word keywords (e.g. "Golden Gate"), and do they need to be quoted?

As previously noted, make your square thumbs crop rather than distort the photo.

Are you going to allow "Username" accounts or only under our true names?

Expand ZIP Code field to accomodate ZIP+4.

Don't see a logout link.

Didn't notice the TOS or Privacy statements.

Upload any stock photos that you feel would be accepted at the majority of stock sites for now, nothings being reviewed at the time being for quality, this will come a bit later, for now all will be placed into a state of approval while under development. We'll work on size requirements in the near future, then quality control will begin...

For the login page, options are 'Keep me logged in' and 'yes'. Both seem to mean the same thing. Also, I can only log in if I click 'yes'.

This is just in time for my new dSLR :)

Enroll as a photographer, after that you will be able to manage and upload photos


OK. I re-signed up as a photographer and it STILL won't log me in as one, only a guest.
I am on a Mac..is that a problem?

No smart remarks from the Peanut Gallery (PCr's) either! ha

Do you want us to upload "real" stock photos -- which could remain once the site goes live? How many?

Edit to add:
I like the watermark. makes it virtually impossible to download without payment, without marring the actual photo. AND I wish the image came out larger.

When I click on some of the thumbnails, the pop-up window isn't big enough for the photo. You have to drag it larger in order to see the entire photo. I'm using Firefox.

You need to have a 'contact us' for those of us with questions. Also, you need to have regulations on file sizes and resolutions for upload.
