Previous Entry user pic question Jun. 23rd, 2005 @ 09:14 pm Next Entry
I've noticed a problem with my user pics. I use ScrapBook to host my user pics so I'm wondering if the problem lies with it.

Once an icon is loaded I upload it from Scrapbook, putting in a keyword and crediting the maker in the comments. I then hit the "proceed" button. I never get an error message of any sort.

Tonight I was told that I wasn't crediting makers. I went to look at my user pics and sure enough, nothing in the comment section was showing. I went to "manage user pics", there was text in the comment section, and scrolled down to the bottom to hit "save settings". When I went back to my user pics the credits showed up.

Does this mean that after uploading a user icon from ScrapBook I need to go to "manage user pics" and make sure to save my settings? Or is my problem somewhere else? Thanks!

that sounds like it has more to do with icon management page, like there might be a bug.

I'm failing to understand why you are using fotobuilder to host your user pics. Just upload them into the Manage User Pics section and you manage them there.

I'm not even sure how any of that works either.. don't you have to upload them through the manage user pic section anyway? /confused

Yep, I store them there so I always have access to them when I'm at different computers. Plus it doesn't take up room on my hard drive. ;)

I guess. But then they're on my hard drive taking up room. This way they're on LJ and I have access to them 24/7 so that when I'm at work or at a friend's house I can manage my icons or show off pictures. :)

Not understanding why I host my user pics there has nothing to do with helping me with this issue. But thanks anyway!

I'm not using the URL option. Once a picture is loaded into ScrapBook there is a page where I can upload into my user pics. I simply click on that link and fill in the text and hit proceed.

As for the glitch, it's happened two separate times now in a span of two months. I don't think that's temporary. :/

When you are managing a single picture in ScrapBook there's a properties tab and that's where I have the option to post to LJ or upload as a user pic among other things. look here

When I click to upload as a user pic it takes me to another screen where I fill in keywords and comments and then hit "proceed". Hitting that button takes me back to the properties page.

I think the thing to do is after uploading them you go to manage user pics on LJ and "save settings". I think. ;)

I had this problem before. The way i solved it was to put "By:" before the LJ user tag I assume you're using in your crediting. It sorted the problem for me. =]

I have a support request up and open because comments vanish periodically from my allpics page -- somewhat like the way you're describing. Submit a support request, they could do with more examples of this bug than just mine.

They'll want screenshots of your allpics and editpics page, FYI -- but they may take a couple of days to tell you that because, well, the 'comments disappearing' error is a pretty rare one that's not easily answerable with a pointer to an FAQ like most other support requests. Save time and include them to begin with.

(I put credits and stuff in the keywords these days because I cant f'in trust the comments on the allpics page to stay put until they find this bug.)

Good to know. I'll do that with my edit pics page and then *hope* (ha!) that my comments disappear again so I can get a screenshot with them missing.

Just wanted you to know that I put in a support request because it's still going on and affecting me getting into any icon/graphic communities. Grr.
