Is anyone else having computer problems when they try to vote this week? The majority of the thumbnail pictures don't display when I click on "vote now" and it won't display any images on other pages after having clicked on it until I rebut the compuetr. I am not having problems with any other pages or sites as long as I don't click on "vote now" first. Ahhhhhhhh This is not fair.

Yep, I'm having the same problem. :(

I'm glad I'm not alone(sorry for you). Hopefully someone out there can help.

I have had the same problem since last night, and we're trying to figure out what's causing it... anyone with any ideas is welcome to throw them out here ;)

Does the vote page stop loading on a particular file for you? It always seems to stop on "free_study.jpg" for me, but I'm not sure if that's a question of the photograph order or the file itself or neither.

same here. i usually do all my voting on mondays, but no luck today. just hope i still find the time to do it so i can submit to the next challenge because i'm really excited about that one.

Mine always hangs while loading the image:

//dpc.client.sargasso.net/images/title/2.jpg

Perhaps that machine is down or very, very slow?

free_study is one of the ones that have stopped the loading for me, but not the only one. i sometimes also get this problem on the home page with the winning photo. sigh ;)

usually, it stops at the actual photo by saying it''s loading 0.jpg.

I don't see an image titled "free_study"
07/15/2002 12:52:40 PM · #9
I was having the same problems, but's it working ok now.
07/15/2002 12:57:34 PM · #10
Now it's a different image, but same machine:

dpc.client.sargasso.net/images/title/9.jpg

07/15/2002 01:07:12 PM · #11
I' failing on different images each time... i am also unable to bring up a single photo to place a vote or a comment.. That stalls completely as well...
07/15/2002 01:11:16 PM · #12
Maybe this will be helpful. If I cut and paste the path to any of the thumbnails, and try to view in my browser it stalls. For example, try to go here:

//dpc.client.sargasso.net/images_challenge/24/thumb/p7110007a1.jpg

Might want to reboot that server dpc.client.sargasso.net...

It appears to be "free-study" for me as well. I wonder if there isn't either a corrupt or virus ridden file. Once I try to pull up those thumbnails and they don't load, and then I move on to another site, I have the same problem with images on all other sites until I reboot. The pages seems to load OK, but none of the images (or few of the images do).

Going with the corrupt idea, I've renamed that thumbnail so it will 404 -- and it works fine for me now. Can someone else confirm this?

here's a work-around. go to the voting page, click on the first thumbnail (whether it loads or not). then copy the url from the picture that should load into a whole new browser window. it will load there (at least it did for me) and you can then start voting ... good luck!
07/15/2002 01:33:31 PM · #17
it still gets stuck for me, but now on another picture :(

Clearing your browser-cache by removing the temporary internetfiles is a possibility (I'm not sure if that's what you meant with old files).
First you might just try the refresh-button though.

If it still ain't working after that, then I don't know anymore.

sorry, yes, that's what i meant. temporary internet files. thanks for helping, remie, i appreciate it.

Is anyone else still having the problem? I recreated the thumbnail for that image using my copy of photoshop, as I'm guessing the corruption was introduced by our image resizing script... but it loads fine for me now.

Was a problem for me last night and earlier today...now it seems to be working fine?
07/15/2002 02:34:08 PM · #25
It seems to be working fine now -- all thumbnails have loaded. I'm so glad to find out it wasn't a virus. :-) I was starting to freak last night.
