New Submit: Bug Patrol

Mon Nov 12, 2012, 11:55 PM
Dearest deviants -- I haven't been writing in my DA journal at all lately - which is terrible - and this isn't even a jorunal update!

This is a help post that might help get to the bottom of some problems deviants have been having with the new submit page -- a lot of people can't upload. And are rightfully yelling.

So, I wanted to make some diagrams:

If THIS button doesn't do ANYTHING when clicked:

...that means you're getting the "busted upload button" bug. Let me know.

If your upload gets stuck LIKE THIS:

...that means you're getting the "progress bar stuck" bug. Let me know.

If THIS THING spins for a long long time:

...that means you're getting the "stashing" bug. Let me know.

...that means everything's working! ;) It also means you're submitting an apple wallpaper, which you probably shouldn't...

If you get THIS error and it USED TO WORK on the OLD submit:

...that means you've hit a "Category Regression"! Let me know!

p.s. Whether or not you like the new design, let's keep this thread about bugs, so that we can focus on helping people experiencing bugs. :bug: Many thanks.

:peace: Keep it Bluesy, DA
