A Few to see if I can upload them..

29 comments


Trying to see if I can upload them…This time I have resized them actually on the camera before uploading onto the laptop…

This is ridiculous, I managed to get one photo on yesterday into my photos which I know is okay, the above three are the only ones I’ve succeeded with today even though I’ve resized quite a few, tried on Edge and Firefox, last attempt resulted in me seeing ERROR 502 Bad Gateway…

Tried contacting site only to be told " Oops !! there's been a mistake and cannot find this page" I'm giving up for today...

So frustrating, Lincs...do you download each photo before resizing?

27 Feb, 2022

 

frustrating indeed. but you have a ladybird ooh lucky you.

Sometimes in the past I had to downsize a shot if I'd taken it in scenic mode but that rarely happened M'land, one doesn't often need that mode for garden shots , I haven't changed the settings on any of my camera's, its definitely Goy that is wrong, its played up often in the past but not as bad as this, there are still some members blogs that I cannot see any pics that should be showing, I can tell by the comments that they are showing for some people, not only that I cannot submit a query on the Contact Us page either...

I also saw two butterflies today Eileen, that means I'll soon be able to cut back my perennials as they are coming out of hibernation, that will make a huge difference to the look of the beds....Getting quite excited and eager...

Sorry for you LL. I can see your photos today, nice ones.
I am resizing on my camera before I put on my Ipad, before loading on Gou.

I am pleased you at least got these three photos on Sue!
It is strange what is happening! When it first started with photos not going on at all, I would get the" Oops there's been a mistake"!
I have changed my settings on my camera and keep it at 5m.
When I start to put a photo in, it says at the top of the screen that photos must be 5m or under.
I hope it gets sorted out for you!

Oh Lincslass you must be so fed up of trying to load photos on here. I am really sorry and a bit cross that you are having all this trouble.
I wish something could be done to make it easy for us once again.
I love the 3 photos that ARE here and the very best of luck with your next effort.

It's nice to see some photos from you Sue.
The one I uploaded of my Aloe yesterday was not resized at all.

27 Feb, 2022

 

Thankyou Siris, Rose and Wildrose, I admit it is making me angry, I have tried everything I can think of at the moment, the photo's are part of our blogs, not the same without them are they..

27 Feb, 2022

 

Hywel its really a strange puzzle to try and figure out, the funny thing is that the one pic I've managed to enter in my gallery of my succulents hasn't been resized at all either, however I don't know how I managed to enter it, a fluke as I couldn't get anymore on whether original or resized...

27 Feb, 2022

 

It's because the people who created the site have abandoned it Sue, and they weren't very responsive when they were around anyway ... well that's my experience of them.

28 Feb, 2022

 

I've rarely contacted them Hywel but this time the problem has gone on a long time so I did try, the" Contact Us " as is usual these days !!! came up with that darned "0ops!! we've made a mistake " ....To be honest I'm completely fed up with trying, I'm in contact with a lot on FB so although its nowhere near the same as blogging, at least I am still in contact with gardening friends. Instead of struggling on here I might do what Karen did and create my own page, at least that way I will still have my garden diary...

28 Feb, 2022

 

Here's their email address ...
contact@growsonyou.com
It will get through directly to Dave and he MAY reply. Could be worth a try ... and if you do, don't faff around, tell it like it is.

28 Feb, 2022

 

Thanks Hywel, I shall do my best x

28 Feb, 2022

 

Despite the issue, Sue, those hellebores are gorgeous! I’m definitely getting more I think. I’ve been inspired this winter/spring.
It has been so frustrating this past while with the site, sadly. I just hope Dave’s new chap will come to our rescue!

Congratulations on getting three pictures to appear on your blog, Lincs. 👍👏

GoY has been around for so long that much of the original code must now be obsolete. Perhaps they are running out of space on their server which might well account for the difficulty everybody is experiencing getting photos to upload.

GoY has outlasted 3 other sites that I used to post on & if it goes west I will sorely miss it & well as all the friends I've made over the last 12 years here!

28 Feb, 2022

 

Hywel I have sent an email, now I have to wait and hope for some sort of response...

28 Feb, 2022

 

Kate the Hellebores are doing very well, I noticed today whilst having a wander, new ones are appearing in places where I though I'd lost a lot...

28 Feb, 2022

 

Balcony that is how I feel about it, I never have found another site as good and gave up trying to find one many years ago, I know many who will be very sad if we lost it completely, you are right about us losing friends, I've never met anyone belonging to goy but after all this time I do class the members as my friends, truthfully I know about the lives of many of the members more than I know my neighbours..
I've watched families grow up and seen many grandchildren born and followed their progress as well as knowing all about the gardens....

28 Feb, 2022

 

You may have to send again Sue, they don't have good communication skills.

28 Feb, 2022

 

No photographs showing today, grrrr!!!!

1 Mar, 2022

 

You'll have to keep pestering them Sue. Pester them and tell them to respond to your emails. I had to get quite shirty before I had any reply.

1 Mar, 2022

 

My OH say looked up 502 bad gateway, means something wrong with the website communication,- that is one wedsite server received an invalid response from another server.

1 Mar, 2022

 

I know Siris, I checked it out, it says its the server at fault and we must contact them, fat chance we have of doing that......

1 Mar, 2022

 

Siris and Hywel, I'm feeling rebellious now, wonder what would happen if we all flag the blogs without photo's and then state our complaints in the " Tell us why we are flagging "

1 Mar, 2022

 

I don't know if people would do that Sue, they just moan but don't seem to do anything about it.

1 Mar, 2022

 

I honestly cannot think of anything else Hywel, you know that normally I'm not a troublemaker but its so frustrating isn't it.. I was also wondering whether its worth trying to open a new account and see what happens, what is putting me off trying is the fact that I don't know what would happen to my original pages, would hate to lose them as that would defeat the object of it all..

1 Mar, 2022

 

I think you'd need a different email address to open a new account Sue, but if you did your original page would still be there, only you can delete it, and you'd be able to use it with the email address you created it with.

Sometimes Sue we have to become trouble makers. That's something I have been late in life learning, but now I am good at it :D
