Title: Can't edit my uploads
Post by: Dog-maDe-sign on June 05, 2020, 12:19
When I try to edit I got this  message:

"Error: Due to the massive uploads, you can only make 7000 submissions per week. Please continue the upload process after 7 days have passed since your first submission."

But my uploads are only 175 in total!!! I'm new on this site.

Could anyone help me? :-[

I think itís just a temporary throttle. I was getting 504 Bad gateway error messages this afternoon EET then, when that resolved, it was the message you saw. The 504 just means servers are overloaded (often because virtual space is not properly assigned) unless itís a DDOS attack on behalf of the evil empire (surely not?!) so they throttle the edit traffic. No idea how they do their hosting but itís a fairly easy problem to resolve if hardware is available in a data centre or in-cloud. If itís as a result of folk doing the same as me, moving all their SS stuff across to DT, Iím happy to live with it for a couple of days.

I am not getting any error messages, but I still can't submit new images. The submit button is gone and I get the message about the daily limit of 1000 images instead.... even though I only submitted like 3 images today.

Had the same message, so I used FTP to up load. Was able to process and already accepted.

I'm not surprised as I stopped uploading in Dreamstime due uploading problems, especially importing problems on their servers (some files imported others not). I asked the support two times and they replied something like "it's all fine here, the problem is on your side" then I quit them.

I posted this a while ago on another thread:

I just tried to process on DT some images that I uploaded about 2 weeks ago but never formally submitted.

No go! I got this message in red at the top of the page:

Error: Due to the massive uploads, you can only make 7000 submissions per week. Please continue the upload process after 7 days have passed since your first submission.

Well, golly gumdrops, I haven't come anywhere close to 7,000 submissions this week. And just a few days ago they accepted a couple dozen that I processed in just a few hours.

DT must be seeing a MASSIVE SURGE in uploads right now.

It's been like that for years, sometimes it just bugs and takes more time for images to process and appear as unfinished.

So we are all all over DT now? :)
