Can't upload image onto this forum (Error code: -200) ?!


Recommended Posts

Sorry, an unknown server error occurred when uploading this file.

(Error code: -200)

Anyone have a clue as to what might be happening?

I don’t think we’ve had a definitive answer to this question but, for me, it’s usually because the dimensions (in pixels) of the image are greater than a certain amount – 2000 pixels springs to mind but that might not be correct.
If I remember correctly, sometimes it’s because of a colour profile issue, and sometimes it’s because of the byte-size of the file.
Sometimes it seems like the website simply doesn’t want to ‘play ball’ for no obvious reason.
The best way that I have found to get round this error is experimentation and hope.

...and probably others.

In my experience, this is a temporary error on the server - the exact same image (there is definitely no error in it) can eventually be uploaded (perhaps in five minutes).
Personally, I solve this by inserting the post without a picture (with a note that the picture could not be inserted), and then I add it there using Edit.

Hey Pšenda, thanks for trying to help! I did what you suggested but it did not work for me. I will try again tomorrow. Thanks again!

Hey GarryP, Thanks for trying to help. I followed the links you provided and read what was available. I hope the system doesn't consider me a russian bot. I will try again tomorrow. Have a great day!

Sometimes just a small change to the file and resaviing it allows the file to upload
