As many of you will be aware, the photo upload system is not working properly at present. It functions intermittently (every 2-3 days) and then goes 'on the blink' again (for about 48 hours). If you try to upload a pic (.jpg), you will find that the following error message keeps appearing: There was a problem uploading your photo. The image you tried to upload is in an invalid format. All images should be in JPG format.

Unfortunately, as things stand at present, all we can do is sit here, twiddle our thumbs and wait for the problem to resolve itself. Without going into too much detail, when Dan Hill, P-M's founder, passed away earlier this year, he took with him the details of his SSH key (aka encrypted password). We, therefore, only have limited access to the 'guts' of the website and are thus somewhat hamstrung in terms of how much we can do to rectify issues of this sort.
If the problem persists and we are still unable to get our hands on the said SSH key, the only other way to resolve the issue (so far as I'm aware) is to rebuild the website virtually from scratch - which, as you can doubtless imagine, would be extremely expensive and probably take months to achieve.

In the meantime, I can quite imagine that many people are starting to lose patience with the website. However, for the moment, I can do little more than offer my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused to those of you wishing to upload your photos. Indeed, I only wish that I could provide you all with a more optimistic prognosis, but, as things stand at present, I fear that we are effectively caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place.
