No gifs in the Art portal anymore?!

2013-09-13 11:43:11 by Damien

I've uploaded GIFs to the art portal before, so when I tried to upload this and got an error message, I was super confused.

Is there a size limit now of some sorts in the art portal? Are certain things not allowed? Did the servers break because of my super awesome hentai skills?
I'd PM Tom about it, but I don't think he moderates the art portal. Anyone know who I could contact about this?

It just gives me a really bland "ERROR — Sorry, there was a problem with your request. Please try again later." -message, so I don't know what's going on.
I tried uploading something different to see if I was banned or something, but jpgs and stuff work.
Then I tried uploading this cute cat gif and it gave me the same message!

What happened to the art portal? Did they change stuff around?

Wierd, my old gif submissions still work okay
wonder why that's all wonky.. o:

Damien responds:

Yeah I don't get it either. I seem to be able to upload some gifs, but not all of them. I'm thoroughly confused.

Don't get it but there just like that without the audio

now it's impossible to vote on the art portal

now that you mentioned about the GIFs... i thought it was just me... guess it's a common problem here in ng now. :s

fuck you amar, no one wants to see your sloppy b-hole gifs

Damien responds:

Play nice children.

I'll get around to submitting gifs too when it's fixed

it's a recent problem, the last animated gif was uploaded about 2 months ago. btw thx for making this news post and getting Tom to notice. otherwise he wouldn't have done anything. I sent wade a pm concerning the same thing and he told he he would pass the message to Tom, but I haven't heard back since.

hope this gets fixed soon because I primarily submit animated gifs to the art portal

(Updated ) Damien responds:

Yah I love making gifs!

They should also consider more support for webcomics. Because I seem to be going to reddit way more to get a fix of webcomics. But that's just me.

Back to the case at hand though, I'm not hearing it from Tom. I'm afraid this problem is going to be postponed again.
I'm getting the feeling that GIFs don't seem to a priority to NG. Which kind of bothers me. The art portal seems to be getting more and more 'ultra amazing art'. Which is not my interest. Needs more versatility, in my opinion.

it's just animated gifs that aren't working

Damien responds:

They used to work though :(


2013-09-13 11:55:46

Woah - this isn't intentional. Looking into it now!

Damien responds:

Thanks man! The problem might be on my side though! But I don't know what I'm doing wrong!


2013-09-13 11:48:18

ask tom
or wade


2013-09-13 11:44:00

Had the same when I tried submitting gifs

Damien responds:

So gifs aren't allowed anymore? Is this something new?
