Several people have reported that uploads aren't working for them on this site.  Happy to redirect BWS to a different location for your portrait pack (but I think ALIEN mentioned that Nexus isn't wget-friendly, so that might not work).

 

GitHub seems pretty reliable (brief downtime yesterday notwithstanding...) and "releases" on that site work well with BWS (we can set it up to automatically pull the latest release), if you're comfortable with that.

Okay... I guess I will try the next two days and if not I'll send ALIEN or you the new download info. Cheers

 

P.S. Thanks for the quick reply.

:WTF:  3 days of "No file was selected for upload". What is wrong? Can somebody fix the problem? What is the problem? Where is the problem? Am I the only one having this problem? What is a problem? Is a problem a mere problematization of anything? Is it problematic to problematize problems? Questions over questions over questions. And still no upload possible. :crazy:

Presumably it's the same thing that's wrong at G3 - the FTP details have changed and nobody can upload files.  SConrad or Kaeloree need to show up again to fix it.

 

I would look for off-site hosting.

@Mike1072 thanks for the info. Hope they get back soon to fix the problem.

So about uploading: There seems to be a threshold! I was able to upload (sic!) two files. These files are about 7.5mb. I tried to upload another, which is slightly larger than 10mb. This attempt failed. So I'm reaching the conclusion here, that any file equal or larger than 10mb will be denied, reading the message "No file selected for upload".

Lately my NoScript addon warns me about potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attempts whenever I open topics in the forums. The URL in question is "https:// apis.google.com/#insert-random-number-here". Can someone check whether it does anything harmful?

I suspect this to be part of the sites user profile management... if you are worried about it, use different browser, a one you have never used to log into the SHSforums and check if it still happens... this is off from the fact that the profile is needed to be checked, as the primary links on the site always use the http:// -topic title- /?view=getnewpost -end. :P
Or I could be just a crazy person. PS, it's more likely to be both rather than either one alone.

OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

Well, AVG ThreatLabs doesn't report any actively malicious code running on shsforums.net, so that's a good sign.  After that, I looked at what Adblock Plus rules there were for apis.google.com.  Most of them fell under Social Blocking Lists, although there were a couple more rules for specific domains on the regular Ad Blocking Lists.  Mostly, I think it has to do with these Social Networking buttons at the bottom of the page.  I have my Adblock Plus filters set up to block junk like this (I had to turn them off to take the screenshot).

This stuff could probably be labeled as minor forms of web tracking/web analytics, but they are found on the vast majority of websites these days.  While not overly "harmful", I don't care for this type of stuff (Social Networking clutter on normal webpages) and have my web browser block it automatically.  Same with all ads.

Thanks for looking into it. I have suspected something like that, but wasn't certain. Some of the icons were already blocked by my "Privacy Badger" addon, but I don't know if Google+ was one of them (it is now). The issue appears to be fixed since a few days ago.

I guess that's what happens when the admins go MII (missing-in-inaction) and don't appoint surrogates.

Hello,

 

I am unable to copy info from files (like WeiDU.log) and then them paste it into a forum message.  Others seem to be able to do so, which leads me to think I must be missing some simple, but critical step or process.

 

This happens whether I use the mouse right-click method of pasting, or use the Ctrl-V method.  Can someone please give me some tips or hints on what I might be doing wrong?

 

Thanks.

I just CTRL-V paste into the same window where I type anything else I'm posting.  I usually write [ spoiler] in front (without the space before the S) and [ /spoiler] at the end (again without the space).

 

Have you tried using a different Internet browser, or a different computer?

agb1,

 

I am still using Internet Explorer 11 as my main browser, and perhaps that was the problem.

 

Just now tried using Ctrl-V to to paste some info at SHS using the Firefox browser, and it worked perfectly.

 

Thank you very much for suggesting that I try a different browser.

 

Best wishes.
