ADMINISTRATORS - I have half fixed my photo image uploading problem

    BUT... As a nobody myself..  People have been crying out and asking for help now for a couple of months on having problems with uploading their photo images

    In all of these complaints.... correct me if I am wrong which is not unusual.... but I have not once seen any interaction from the hubpages committee (administrators) entering anywhere in this forum

    With suggestions of help.

    As administrators of hubpages I and I hope many other members are actually disappointed that you do not show any interest in your members problems.

    Sites like EHow have fallen in a hole because the administrators or powers to be are not interested in their members opinions.

    I really thought hubpages was far above that.

    Do not misunderstand me.  I love it here. So am  not going anywhere, unless you ban me.  But I think you could help out a little more and not leave it all to the members to do all the helping especially for the newbies,  who lets face it become frustrated when things do not work for them.

    Put yourself in their spot.  If you were new and trying to do something for the first time I expect you would like some help from the bosses from time to time.  At least to show that there were humans working behind the scenes and not just the members.

    Sorry I do not want to sound or be awful that is not my nature  I just think we all need help and encouragement from time to time from the boss.

    Eileen - your frustration is understandable - however - I think that direct requests for help to the hub team is better than seeking help in the forums - the forums are constantly moving so the questions are not easy to follow - try going direct rather than through the forums smile hope that helps smile

    I do not need the help anymore at the moment it is the newbies that I am more concerned about.  Before they get lost in the fog
    and leave hubpages for good
    Simply because they get frustrated at not being able to do what they want to do .

    Hopefully the problem will be fixed soon, it's weird how it seems to be intermittent though, I have never suffered from the problem.

    I have tried to help a couple of hubbers who were having trouble with this though, and on each occasion the Hubbers where trying to use protected images (They were right clicking and copying link location, on a protected image however that just gives you a blank white image.)

    I have seen the site administrators all over this forum and on other forums. I understand your frustration but it is best people contact them directly.

    I believe there may be a systemic problem with images, in which event the forum is a perfectly appropriate place to voice one's concerns. Image-related help requests have been popping up for weeks, sometimes at a rate of several each day. There should be no need for individual members to email HubPages about potentially systemic problems of which they already must be fully aware.

      If you ever see someone complaining about it in the forums ask them to provide the link to the image and try loading it in a web browser.

      If the browser comes up with just a blank screen, or an error, then they are trying to take an image which has been protected.

        Thisisoli, I will keep this in mind, thank you.

        I'm not sure this is always the case, since it was happening to me with images that I paid for.  When I switched to Google Chrome, the problem was gone.

          @PrettyPanther, most of the people having a problem are using Internet Explorer - when they switch to Firefox or Chrome, the problem disappears.

          IE is not a good browser to use for all sorts of reasons!

            I agree about IE, but I was having the problem in Firefox, which is the browser I regularly use.
