Server timeout whenever uploading gifs?

Last posted Jul 12, 2014 at 01:52AM EDT. Added Jul 10, 2014 at 11:08AM EDT

Seems to be a hit and miss for me, I could upload less than 3mb gifs occasionally, sometimes it wouldn’t. I’m trying to upload a 2.5mb gif right now but I keep getting this error. Any help?

It will time out on /photos; go to that page directly and see if your image showed up in the gallery. If not, go back a page and try again.

Speaking of which, when I go back, the submit button couldn’t be clicked.

You need to go to /photos first. It’s already in the address bar when you time out, just press enter on it.

All right.

Had to retry a lot to get some uploads. If you’re curious I’m the one uploading Pokemon gifs right now because the recent episode is full of it.

Weird, I managed to upload all gifs save for this one. I kept retrying and it wouldn’t upload.


Any idea why?

You will almost always get a server timeout when uploading a Gif, however if you wait a little less than 3 minutes after the timeout and go to your image stream it should show up. I do believe this delay is created by Thumbnail Creation on the Server Side.

What url are you trying to upload?

the image itself (2.7mb), not the url

tried the waiting game, doesn’t seem to work

So you’re trying to upload it from a file on your computer and not a url?

Yep.

Is upload via url much better?

You might be limited by your upload speed if you do it that way. It’s already online so just use the url instead: http://abload.de/img/keepu0bfv1.gif

Weird then, since I managed to upload bigger files (albeit after retrying a lot).

Seems like I got the 504 error again. I figured it’s the file itself that has the problem, but I don’t see anything wrong with it.
