Marketplace isn't working.

I've been trying to post on the marketplace, but every time I hit "submit", it brings me to back to step one of three of the process, and my ad hasn't been posted.

I tried this on both Chrome and Firefox. I can't figure it out.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Haven't personally had this problem, but a lot of the reasons ads don't post is because pictures are too big. Try making them much smaller and see what happens.

I tried downsizing the images to below a 1mb each. Now, instead of being looped back at the start of the process, the page just completely stops.

Have you tried posting an ad without any pictures? I know some people are able to get ads posted that way.

What about what type of file they are? I know pictures on the profiles need to be a specific type (I think like jpeg or something) so maybe they need to also be specific for the marketplace?

ThakYuki: Thanks, that worked perfectly, and was able to add pictures to it after posting no problem.

My god I've been having trouble posting ads in the marketplace too. I would set everything up, press the post button, and it would give me the illusion that everything was finished and done except that no ad was ever created.
I finally did what you guys said, and created an ad without any pictures, and edit the ad later to add photos in. I had to upload the pictures onto facebook though first, before putting them on here. Guess they were too large; I wish there was some king of notice when trying to post a picture that it wouldnt work. I spent a week trying to figure out what was wrong.

Actually yes there IS a reason..Please read things..One being the rules IN the marketplace, the other being other threads in this same subforum you just posted in..
You are a new member and there are a TON of people that ask this same question all the time. There are too many of this same question you have that you can't even count them.
The reason is because you are new, you need to meet requirements before you are allowed to post there. You need to be a member for 30 days as well as have 10 forum posts. You have been here over a year, but you only have a few posts. THAT is why..If you took the time to read the rules outlined in bold on the marketplace front page, you'd know this already. But like you, no one seems to care about them..I swear no one on here anymore sees that word and actually reads them..

Jason, I don't think everyone has the chunk of text on the side of their marketplace screen. I used to have it, but haven't seen it for months. Just a calendar for me now...

As for the rest of it, yes, there are multiple threads just below this one that say the exact same thing about the rules. Guess most people don't know how to open their eyes and read...

O.o and now older threads that answer that same question aren't showing up for me...
