I keep getting the HTTP 500 error everytime I try an upload a pic. It includes the "x" on the page instead of the picture itself and the 1969 glitch on the date.

I have been trying couple times every hour for about 5 hours, it is a bit fustrating.

Thanks to anyone in advance for taking care of site dinkies like these!

I'm having the same issue as EgnirysFaye, except with my photos not uploading, or if they do.. I can't see them and get the no picture icon too. I ended up having to just delete the photos and if I try to upload a new one... the same thing will happen again! Also when you look at my account main page it shows that I have "4294967287" photos. That is a ridiculous amount of pictures and I certainly don't have that many!

The Watch List for the Marketplace doesn't work. Any ads I add to my watch list don't show up there. (I think this was broken when the marketplace was this way before)
Every time I open the fridge, the hole in my jello glares at me.

Thank you for completely removing my signature without emailing me that it was too long.

I am. This seriously needs to get fixed, it's stretching the entire page to the point where I have to scroll numerous times just to get past the polls.

This isn't really that big of a deal but, I can't seem to change font sizes, even when I type it in manually instead of clicking on the button. Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me? o.o;;

I was trying to upload some pictures to my album, but this keeps popping up! (Check Attachment)...

Then when I go back to main page (not by pressing the back button). I get a new photo count and no photo, or a I get photo count with a broken photo image... I'm already at the point where my pictures aren't even worth posting here anymore if I have to downsize the file to like 450kb.

Almost all of the photos I uploaded 2005 or earlier have broken thumbnails. The actual photo works when clicked on, but the broken thumbnails make the costume pages look sad.

I have an error that states I have (and still have) 4294967291 photos when I had none. Still not accurate after uploading two photos D:

Plus, I can't get an icon for my costume icon! (but that may just be me) How does everyone else get it to be exactly 200x200?!

I don't think the huge number bug will ever get fixed lol That's been there since before I was on here (that was over 2 years ago now)....

On the 200x200 I can tell you how I do it..

-Open the picture you want, on MSPaint
-Make the whole pic smaller, like to wear the whole pic fits on the screen and you don't need to scroll, by clicking on "image" then "Resize/Skew" then put in the number % to make it smaller (anything less then 100 will make it smaller). Make sure you put the same number in both boxes (one for vertical and one for horizontal, and putting the same number makes it smaller while keeping the proportions).
-Then once you get it to a size where you can see the whole picture, use the selection button, which is the dotted line square in the tools on the left side (top right tool) and select a square of what it is you want in the pic. On the bottom right of the window, you can see w "numberXnumber" pixel thing. It will get pigger and smaller according to the square you make with select. Make it in an interval of 200 but where you can use halves (like 200, 400, 800, 1600, and so on)
-Then on the image thich you clicked earlier, there's a crop button. Press that while still selected.
Then, as long as you followed the numbers mentioned in the select step, you can keep using %) in the resize boxes and it will eventually go down to 200x200. Then save as the correct file (which I believe is .JPG and .JPEG only..and you're done.

Hope this isn't too confusing..

The sad thing about the huge picture count is that is that it should be a VERY easy bug to fix. I can't speak to exactly what other people experiencing it did to cause it exactly, but I imagine it went something like this as it did for me:

They tried to upload pictures, and despite following the posted guidelines for size, total upload size, etc, it blew up because the real limitations are somewhere between the posted ones and what they used to me.

This results in a "ghost" picture, which you can access by going to pictures, selecting a non-ghost picture, and then using the frame to go the next/previous one. Now, you are looking at the ghost picture, and you have the option to delete, which I did. (for a good many of them in my case, as it took a while of trial and error to figure out the sweet spot for photo uploading)

Now this is where the problem occurs. When the uploader blows up, it has gotten as far as allocating a spot for the picture gets uploaded, but it does NOT increment the photo count. I assume that happens somehwhere downstream when the picture is successfully uploaded. However, the error handler does not deallocate the space for the picture, which is why the ghost one shows up. But, when you delete the ghost picture, it DOES decrement the photo count, despite never being incremented, which results in a picture count that is too low by however many ghost pictures you delete.

The reason the number becomes enormous is because is because of integer overflow. The picture count seems to be stored as an unsigned 32-bit integer. What happens is that when you delete more ghost pictures than you previously had overall, it decrements from zero, which results in it turning over and becoming the maximum number that the integer can hold, or 4,294,967,295. Deleting more pictures will result in in continuously decrementing from this number. Theoretically, if you uploaded more pictures successfully, you could get the number back to zero by exceeding that maximum number. (which, hey, it looks like the next time I upload a picture I will get to test that theory, lol) Of course, the count will still be completely wrong, but at least it'll look less dumb. The same principal seems to apply to costume picture counts too, if you selected one to associate the picture to at upload time like I did, since I have a costume with a silly number as a result of deleting ghost pictures from unsuccessful uploads to it. I imagine it is the same for albums in general too.

But anyway, fixing it would just require moving a line of code. Of course, the right thing to do is to fix the absurd bugs in the uploader that make this site borderline unusable for it's primary purpose, but at the very least they could prevent the integer overflow by making sure to increment the picture count at allocation time, so ghost pictures become accounted for in the number, or by making sure to catch uploader errors and remove the ghost pictures on error, or preferably both to be safe, decrementing the count when automatically removing ghost pictures. I can't imagine it would be particularly difficult to write a one-time script that updates the numbers to be correct site-wide, either, but alas, the maintenance of this site is abysmal.

TL;DR- The uploader is bad at error handling and increases the count at the wrong time. The simple fix for it is a half hour at most to find and move at most a handful of lines of code, and the better fix and/or correcting everyone's counts probably at most a day. XP
