View Full Version : Duplicate Submission? What duplicate submission?

I have been attempting to submit a piece of artwork that was done for me for several days, but every time I try, it tells me that it is a duplicate.

I have searched through my artwork submissions and cannot find a duplicate.

Now, I admit that I did put this picture as cover art for a sound file previously. Is that what it is calling a duplicate?

If so, that's not exactly fair for several reasons:

1) It has never flagged separate artwork from multimedia before.
2) Multimedia is listed as multimedia, not artwork, so, those who usually only look at artwork will not see the multimedia submission, so it's not really a duplicate, is it? Nor will I be able to attract artwork visiors to my multimedia presentations.

So, is this an error, or not?

Have you tried renaming the file and uploading it?
Doing this often solves the issue of "This have already been uploaded" on sites that look for duplicates.
I think it something new though, and probably done in an effort to stop that dubble post thing thats been going on for a while?

Okay, tried renaming. No good. Said it was a duplicate.

Tried changing the type. No good. Said it was a duplicate.

I finally resized it slightly. That worked.

Something is wrong.

Try drawing a single dot somewhere on the image and then re-upload. Like, literally a single pixel.
