RR Picture Archives Down
Posted by Trainzguy2472 on Thursday, July 12, 2018 12:08 AM

Hello,

I was just trying to upload a few pictures onto rrpicturearchives.net, but it seems like their photo uploader is broken.  For the past few hours I have been trying, but it doesn't work.  After selecting the photo and typing in a description, when I click the "upload" button, it just produces a 404 error.  Is it just me or is it everyone else?  This is really annoying.

Thanks,

Matthew Cheng

Works fine for me, 9 hours later.

For me, sometimes the site is very slow.  Sometimes not.  I expect if someone poured more money into it, it could be faster.  I suspect the advertising revenue has very few zeroes after the first number.

As of 10am, the "photo of the Day" archives were also down, resulting in a '404' error when selecting a photo.

The website still works, but the photo uploader won't.  Update as of 8:28 am.

Something is going on, the list of the latest photos stops at the 8th!

I think RR Picture Archives is dead. No one is fixing it. Why. IDK, maybe they just don't care anymore.

One picture added in the last four days, showing as added yesterday, and it displays at high resolution so the basic mechanics of the photo storage are still running at some level.  No notification on the site itself of any distress or extraordinary maintenance, but the 'autodetect' of the browser is massively broken for a Mac running Firefox 61.0.1 64-bit.
