Hello! I'm trying to upload some (topic relevant) pictures of Skid Plates to the Vanagon Forum, but the Computer Nanny keeps telling me I can't, and that I need to use the Classifieds section.

These are NOT parts for sale....
Thanks for your help.
Nico

What's the computer nanny?

There is a message at the top of the Gallery Upload form that says:
Quote:
This Gallery is for VW and Porsche photos only. No ads! Use the Classifieds section of the site for ads.

It always says that but it doesn't prevent you from uploading pics.

There is nothing else that checks for "for sale" pics or ads in the Gallery

Yeah, I tried uploading three times, each time doing something different, and didn't get the upload confirmation. My pictures didn't upload, and this 'classifieds' message was there.

So, I'm not sure what I did wrong, but it didn't work as expected.

Cheers!
Nico


*********EDIT**************
Sorry, tried it yet again, and this time it worked.
23rd time's the charm, I always say.....

Got it - I understand.

It may have been that you tried to upload too many huge photos at once.
Sometimes your connection to the site will time out.
If the photos are huge, try doing only a few at a time.
