Yes we have Paul, and I've merged the topics.

I haven't posted here since early April and now find I can't upload pictures to a post. I keep getting a "403 Forbidden" error. I tried a single test Jpeg image, 700x525 pixels, 60kb in size and still get an error. A text only post works ok.

Any thoughts?

I'm having the same issue, so you're not alone. Guess it will get fixed eventually.  Maybe they need to reboot - seems to fix most computer issues. Smile

After 47 years let's have another crack at this caper!

I'll try again in December! Wink

It's stupidly difficult I think the only way I can get anything to upload is this way hit a reply button then select the photo icon then I have to select take a new picture I'do all this on my iPad as it wont accept old saved pictures. it's just a matter of days waiting for admin to approve then

More problems. 

 

Since the '403 forbidden' issue was resolved, and I managed to upload my finished Phantom images things have become impossible again!!

 

The upload message seems to have changed and how I find my image file, then the upload icon just whirls round and the image doesn't load?

 

It's no wonder I've almost given up on the Airfix forum and am now concentrating on the ATF as showing my builds is all part of the enjoyment of modelling!!!

Upload is working for me, although my permissions may be different. You could try viewing and uploading on a different browser to see if it's a browser related issue.

What happens Paul is that the image doesn't seem to load. You must resist the temptation to click on the submit button again (or several times) because, if you come out of the page then re-enter it, the image is there (for those of us with instant approval). Those without tend to submit multiple ideantical images, and whoever is approving them doesn't see that they're the same and we get repeat posts with identical pictures.

Just tested again and issue seems to have been resolved?

 

I'll post 2 images and the first 1 shows the usual message I get which works, the second image shows the message that doesn't.

 

Just in case someone knows more about these systems than I do?
