#15.MW101 w/SICπŸ€:: {Preventing Gray photo pollution} I know this is looong over due! But here are some things we all need to know about preventing gray photos from consuming the lounge. For whatever reason, I think this seems to be mainly a Driod problem, when you are in a low service area (from my understanding). Here are some steps to keep in mind when posting a photo: πŸ”΄1} After you hit submit, STAY on that screen until you see the message of success shown in photo 2. This shouldn't take long, and if it does, it's especially important to stay on that page because it could mean the service is slower at that point and your chances of a gray photo are sky high. πŸ”΄2} After it says 'Success' PLEASE just take a sec to check and make sure it uploaded correctly, if it didn't follow the steps in the last photo and DELETE the photo yourself. It is YOUR responsibility as the poster to make sure it loaded properly or gets deleted promptly. πŸ”΄3} If you are having trouble getting into the lounge on a busy day, to upload or check on your photo, it is best to wait until you have the service needed to post the photo properly---instead of flooding the lounge with blank or gray photos. If we do not follow these guidelines, gray photos end up flooding the lounge, and push successfully loaded posts away. I know it's exciting to share a photo with us, but we will al still love it when you have better service and haven't already flooded us with grays!πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much!!

Agree. Thank you but can't emphasize enough to delete the post! - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #229 4-19-12 2:04PM
On Androids, you don't get the popup confirmation, it just take you to the lounge.  I've found that sometimes if I have bad service (i.e. in the park) I will be stuck on the uploading screen so long, that my phone will go into sleep mode.  Everytime it does this, I get the grey on a picture, so tip to Android users: just tap the screen while it's loading to make sure phone doesn't go to sleep.

Great tip! Even if you don't get the Success message yet, the idea is the same, try to stay on that page till you see that it uploads. If it seems like bad service, it might be best to wait a bit. Even I do that. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4412.1 #43 4-18-12 3:53PM
Thank you for this tip! I'm reposting it so it doesn't get lost as just a reply. Since I don't have a Driod, I didn't know about re-sizing photos. πŸ‘ "Thank you SIC! On my Android phone, after the pic posts, it takes me back to the lounge and I can see right away that it posted correctly. In high traffic areas and/or days it's best to reduce the file size before posting. That helps a lot. - VeloMouseGirlΒ 330.4Β #277Β 12:31PMΒ  R" - Sweet_Irish_Cream   4412.1 #43 4-18-12 12:36PM Like(2)  Reply

Thanks for posting this. I am a droid user and I have posted pictures (both successfully and not) and never have I received the notification shown in the 2nd picture..I didn't even know that existed. Oh well, one more reason to switch to an iiphone :o) - Prettynpink1023   285.0 #1173 4-18-12 12:20PM Like  Reply
Interesting, well in the same spirit of it, it's best to wait and not go away from the screen until you see it has uploaded properly. I know this is a tricky thing, and there are always exceptions, but generally this is the best way to prevent this. : ) - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4412.1 #43 4-18-12 12:24PM
