Problem Uploading Pictures
Join to comment
Hello there. I am fairly new to MOCpages as a user, and I have recently encountered a problem with uploading pictures. To be specific, I can't upload them at all. I have tried using both uploaders, but I am not sure if either I am regrettably impatient, if I'm missing something, or some other reason which escapes me. When I try to upload pictures to the new uploader, the image simply replaces the window that the uploader is on. If I use the old uploader, two things happen. One, it takes a very long time (which I understand is due to the size of the images). Two, once all pictures have been successfully uploaded, they do not appear on the page for writing the description of my MOC. Am I doing something wrong? I have tried this on both Firefox and Safari, and the pictures are stored in iPhoto. Any tips?

Well, while an image is uploading, a second window is supposed to pop up. Also, as I recall, my first creation took forever to upload. Hopefully one of those helped!

Okay, I'll give it a try. Thanks. :)

when you say "new" do you mean new as in a recent member who has uploaded stuff before, but suddenly it doesn't work, or new as in brand new haven't uploaded anything yet?


The first couple of MOCs added by ALL new members need to be authorised by an admin before they become visible - even to you. This is to reduce the number of spam accounts selling us stuff (and to prevent other nastiness I'll not spell out).

Once the admins have viewed your mocs (and decided you are genuinely here to share Lego and nothing else) your mocs become visible and all future mocs no longer require authorisation.

However. If you've had access before, but suddenly lost it without warning, then I'm not sure what has happened.

You say you aren't a patient person - boy did you pick the wrong week to join. I believe we only have one admin on duty at the moment, so there could be delays.

Your mocs will appear, give it another day.
