The problem is not your upload or atleast more than likely it isn`t an upload issue.

The site is being moved to a new server. Not sure if it is finished yet but evidently not. I can not see pictures in any show and tell post but I can in talking tractors.

So I would say the move isn`t complete yet.

There may have been a small window in time where pics that were being loaded got lost last night -- as we were moving to the new server. The move took place between 10PM and shortly after midnight Eastern.

The problem is caused by having to change the Domain Name Servers throughout the entire internet, which isn't an "instant switch." It takes time for that HTTP address change to propogate throughout the world. Meanwhile, someone's ISP (such as Comcast) could still be pointing toward the old address while the site had been physically moved to the new address.

The text content of the posts/replies isn't as problematic, since all that is stored in a database that's actually running on a different machine. The pictures are stored in a server's file system and file folders - so each picture has to be physically copied and put in the right location. Meanwhile, some pics being uploaded could've gone to the old server...

Anyway, I think that's what likely happened.
