What image is supposed to be placed on the script page near the title?
Looks like currently it's a large image (with name large.png) but resized to 92×69 (not to 120×90 as I expected), which is really ugly, and at the same time there is a much better looking resize to 120×90 which looks nice and has different name: thumb.png.

So the question is: given the advise to make the picture look nice at 120×90, wouldn't it be better to show beautiful 120×90 thumb.png with link to large.png, instead of large.png resized by browser to ugly 92×69?

Thanks.

Mine just shows the gravatar image associated with my email address (at 92x92).

Edit: The stylesheets were changed earlier this year, so that could explain why the 120x90 information is no longer accurate.

I see.
Looks like the instruction should be updated.

Btw, GreaseMonkey itself needs an icon of size 32×32.
I tried to upload this size, and it was (as expected) blurry due to the enlargement to 92.

It used to work. Seems it doesn't work anymore. Even if you upload very small images it still doesn't work anymore.

I also can't seem to upload screenshots. 83.4kB PNG. No error messages.

I can't upload either. I will keep trying to try and find a workaround.

Same; tried PNGs and JPEGs to no avail (33KByte files, resolutions of 652x400 and 652x484). No error or information is shown. Server-side problem or is there a limitation being imposed silently (not wise UI design if so).

I was starting to wonder if I was uploading wrong kind of images or something. Turns out it's just broken and fails silently.

I think I figured out why it was failing. Can you try again? It should work if it is what I think it is

This is normal for script homepages... although the max- CSS prefixes could be used instead of actual width and height to ensure fitting 100% of the time. I toyed with the idea of a user.js setting/clearing these but most of the time the script icons are 1:1 or near 4:3 aspect ratio now.

Still not working for me. I tried uploading a jpg a png and a gif the png and gif had transparency. The size was 120x90 the jpg size was smaller the weight of all the file was <15kb.>

here is the png one http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/423/logoaqb.png

Can you implement to use a file hosted on an other server so you just paste the url and it shows?

Last time I checked Lightbox, the thumbnail viewer, uses jQuery and it would probably need cross-domain privileges enabled in order to even think about doing that. I toyed with replacing it user.js side and ran into this issue last time. If USO were to grab a remote URI and store it via the current CDN that would probably increase the servers load/quotas quite a bit... not to mention usually most server side u/d speeds are flipped as compared to consumer clients. This is most of my current understanding for this RFE.

Have you tried all the tips upstairs?

Yes but i didnt quite understand. I dont have any limit on how much amount of data i can upload and if you mean like if im uploading a lot of stuff at the same time im not so i think the sufficient upload bandwidth thing is clear. I dint understand the second point at all and idk what USO means. I tired uploading the pic many tiemes and each time i uploaded it i refreshed the page so that didnt do anything for me.

Site traffic is another paraphrase for heavy load... e.g. what time of day have you tried to perhaps work around the high traffic pulses that USO (UserScripts.Org) may receive. Added a couple of extra ones to the list btw from prior experience.

If you check this link over a period of time you will see that at the very least it's working or not for others. So far since I started watching your issue approximately 40 images have been uploaded. I'm not saying that you aren't having trouble... just trying to offer some tips for when the server is possibly being stubborn.
