 Group moderator 
let's just wait for confirmation from the mods before jumping to conclusions.

for information - I'm using firefox and I can't view any images, even the buttons/links. Which would imply an image hosting issue of some kind.

I suspect iexplore is also showing the same issue.

remember guys the last time there were server issues was during the summer when traffic on here increased A LOT, we're in the "holiday season" and traffic has probably spiked again. Server drag is inevitable.

I was tryin' to upload a new creation, and each I lost my pics. Then, I went to this convos. And they're back.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T REFRESH YOUR COMPUTER! You will lose your images. Trust me I tried refreshing, and I got the opposite. Lost the images.

It's like back and forth, back and forth.

There's something I gotta say.

Well, Each time I try to view an MOC (of any kind, not all of them) I see a blank photo with a little box with a red "X" in the top left corner of the picture.

Either, I notice that some people's buddy icon's are just plain-old blank, or just be a black square. The crash happened in August, but did anybody notice that the "MOCpage is recovering from a disc failer or crash last week" message has disappeared, from the top of the page?

No pictures are showing up for me on anyones homepage right now. That could be part of the fact that I am using my library's computer.

But anyway, when did all of this happen?

My computer blew up (as a result of a malware attack), and I haven't been able to be close to MOCpages in the past week. It should hopefully be fixed soon, but in the next few days, I won't be on MP that much, if any.

Anyone mind giving me an update?

For the record, asking the mods to lock threads doesn't, from what I've seen, tend to accomplish anything.

"Lock plz'd" threads have a way of staying open, and threads that're busily being used have a tendency of being closed. If they want to lock it, they will. Otherwise, tough luck for you.

Quoting Areetsa C
For the record, asking the mods to lock threads doesn't, from what I've seen, tend to accomplish anything.

"Lock plz'd" threads have a way of staying open, and threads that're busily being used have a tendency of being closed. If they want to lock it, they will. Otherwise, tough luck for you.


;P hehe
