uploading images: help

I am having trouble adding attachments. I have tried everything, reducing file size, changing file size and name, removing spaces. Any clues how to get image files uploaded? this is the error I get on a 25 kb file (reducing to 18 kb did not help)

IMG_0642 TOH 1b.JPG:
This is not a valid image file.

I tried to make an Album, as per FAQ entry, but found no Album link in my user control panel.

Thanks!

Unfortunately due to spam, TOH doesn't allow new members to upload images until they have 10 or 15 posts to their credit. You can, however, host the image ******, then post the link here.

You'll have to talk to the admin about that. While you're at it, see if you can get control of the word censor so we can type our messages without losing benign words.

Image testing failed here too. After choosing a variety of file types they were all rejected. :(

I have not tried to upload anything recently, though I'm sure I've done it in the past. Linking from another website works fine.

Speaking of the word censor...

All valid words considering the subject of this forum, but all blocked by the censor because they *might* be common components of spam, or possibly be objectional. But there are others I haven't figured out how to override: in particular, "[email protected]" because it contains the word "[email protected]". How silly is that?

So how did I get these words to appear?

Substitue zero for oh.

(Hmm. P0wer used to be blocked, but now it's not. Strange.)

Any word containing [email protected] in it, e.g., [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], etc.

W0w is another one. Now that we have live moderation, we don't need to have the word censor, or at least remove the listed words from it.

You can e-mail pictures to me at [email protected] and I will post them for you. Use "TOH PICS" in the subject line and include your TOH login name .
