eOn Profile Picture upload fail

Post by DrLingCN » Sun Oct 06, 2013 3:54 pm

When I tried to upload a picture to my BOINC profile, I recieved a 500 Server Internal Error.
The picture is JPG and less than 50KB.

Can anyone fix that?

We just don't allow posting of signatures. The goal is to keep the forum as based upon actual content as possible.

It's NOT about signatures!
Do you know about the BOINC project eOn?
I'm talking about profile of that project, not this forum.

Ah, right. I actually still don't understand the problem. I see an image uploaded in your profile.

BOINC score pic is in "Your opinions about eOn" using external link. Profile pic must be uploaded.

As I was looking into the problem, I remembered the issue. Allowing boinc users to make an arbitrary link is considered a security vulnerability by our network administrators. At one point, there were a number of suspicious links in the user profiles from the eon machine. Since we do not have a way to control that content, we applied a patch to prevent these external links.

So, BOINC users cannot upload pic to profile in the future?
