Picture Uploads size fail

This info about uploading pics not working was from 2020 – but it may still be an issue for some – and here is a work-around to try:

(if you are using a mc device iphone/ipad/macbook – pics and videos will likely fail no matter what you do – it’s a wierd issues we’ve tried to fix many times – it’s still on the todo list)

It seems that there is a weird pixel size issue we have not nailed down yet.

Many smart phones especially are making really large images, and many of those will not upload unless they are resized first.

Short term work-around – resize the picture to less than 1920×1080. There are many online resize sites for free, and likely free apps that can do this for you.

There is some debate the MB file size could be triggering an issue – but we are not sure on this yet,

If you make a pic that is smaller than 1200 x 1200 pixels, and it still wont’ upload, please contact me with additional info like file size, operating system / device you are using.

This is a totally different issue than the iphone / ipad / macs won’t view or upload videos.

updates nov 16 2019

I just pushed some updates tonight…
this may have fixed some things,
may have broken more things
and may have little or no noticeable affect!
(have not tested everything yet – and likely will depend on you all to message me if you notice something new working or no longer working(

Some of the fixes are minor patches for new php versions.. but one of them was an attempt to fix a problem with new blogs and blog posts not saving.. Hope that is fixed, not 100% positive yet!

Not sure if it any of these patches affect iphone stuff, I don’t have any ios devices to test with yet.

so, give videos a test and let me know if it’s still an issue – like upload a new video from an iphone and see if it displays after?

fixes may only fix new videos and not old.. but they might fix old ones too (?) – the code that is affecting that is very complex for my brain to be honest – but I’m trying!

And should be able to tackle the iphone videos issues faster now that these other things are in place if it’s not already fixed!

Tumblr deleting adult content is mass this time

Just saw an article saying that tumblr aka tumbler is shutting down all adult content in December of 2018. Very little notice, and quite a surprise.

It’s pretty easy to export tumblr posts and then import them in a wordpress powered site like this one.

I’ve grabbed some screenshots to make a tutorial showing how to export your tumbler blog and then import the posts and content into your own blog aka site here on adults only space. This process will be very similar on other wordpress powered sites.

As of writing this first draft, the export process for my friends small tumbler blog (I think it has less than 100 mostly nude and naughty posts) – is taking more than an hour for the backup to finish “processing” – maybe their computer servers are super swamped and running slow.

So I will come back and complete this tutorial for the import once the backup process completes and I finish a few other things and come back to it.

For non-graphical instructions for exporting your tumblr content see the help message from them here: https://tumblr.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360005118894-Export-your-blog

I might make a video tutorial showing how to do this.

You could also launch a little hosting account at a standard web host, install wordpress free and host your stuff on your own account.

This post will be updated later this evening and a new page created for this important info.

Bunch of updates – June 11 2018

We updated a bunch of backend code today. Let me know if something is broken. Most of the updates were just patches to make things run faster between the different sections. Nothing major new to report just yet.

We have made some progress on the new chat room we;ve been testing. Fingers crossed it gets up and running by end of month.

Still no clue as to when we be get the next hump for the videos not working with apple / iso / iphones / ipads yet. We have some clues as to why it’s an issue – but the things we need to move to get to testing that chunk of code is a daunting task. Still on the agenda though!

Back to testing more things!

Flickr sold out we might be an alternative

Recent news says that yahoo sold flickr, which is really meaning the Oath / Verizon group that had bought yahoo recently has sold Flickr to SmugMug, which at first I cheered. I was happy to see Verizon losing flickr as it made it’s revamp of privacy policies and data sharing more prominent in yahoo mail and other services recently.

I’ve always loved Flickr, it has been a sort of bastion of excellence not just with photos, but with being a social network and one that kind of made little groups and little friends around random water coolers of subjects easily. It also had screen names instead of the stupid real name policy that some places have.

Flickr is a great place to store photos online, and to choose your sharing options with others and the world. A great place to find other photos and art that people have chosen to release to reuse by others with various CC / creative commons licensing. So many great uses for Flickr, it’s kind of a shame that so many people likely tried to keep it a secret and not tell all their friends and family about it. I am guessing on this last part.

There has always been a decent amount of nude photos and nude VR pics / computer art find-able via flickr, and many groups of friends and fans that came together to share more.

Unfortunately this may change with the buyout by SmugMug – as someone pointed me to the terms of service that SmugMug has:

User Content that is unlawful, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, sexually suggestive, hateful, harassing, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable or harmful, including without limitation: Photos, Videos or other User Content containing nudity that would be unacceptable in a public museum where minors visit;


This is seriously devastating for me and likely for many others. There were so many groups, some public and with many members, some private, that were joined together by the love for sharing erotic art. Some had come together to share gay and lesbian photography, and so many other niche things.

A place where you could find others who were sharing similar interests that are not well received in the mainstream facebook world, and they may now be censored?! O.M.G.

So, we have space here, adults only space has photo uploads… the videos thing is a work in progress. We have groups, and we have some of the options like no real names needed, and some privacy choices for media uploads, so people could come here to congregate and share erotic art, nude photography, selfies, all that jazz.

I know that Flickr had a good export photos option, I assume that will still be available.

cnet article on how to download your flickr photos – https://www.cnet.com/how-to/two-ways-to-get-your-photos-out-of-smugmugs-flickr/

So people can upload some pics here. We certainly do not have the kind of storage space that flicker company has at their disposal. So we won’t be able to have people uploading hundreds of gigabytes of pics here, not anytime soon. But you could certainly share smaller pics, or less of them and get some groups going.

We’ll look at expanding the storage space options if there is a lot of people asking for that and we can find some ways to get some sponsorship for storage or pro accounts or some other kind of funding for the bigger server hard drives.

We do not allow pictures of anyone under 18, so we are not a good alternative for people who want to share all their family photos and stuff.

It may be a good option for people to simply get their own web server up and running and share photos that way. Backups are the current challenge, but some hosting companies offer auto backup options. There are all kinds of free file uploading scripts that can be deployed with a couple of clicks. Would be easy to setup a little site to share pics with family and another site to share pics with friends.

Maybe SmugMug will not force flickr into the same censoring that they have been running with for all these years. We’ll see.

More on these things later.

Facebook drama news this week

Seeing tons of bad press for facebook this week. Just read an article at one of the major US news sites talking about alternatives to facebook that do not sell your data to third parties. Funny that article basicly listed a few alternatives that DO share your data.

Sad that they did not mention us here at Adults Only Space. We have been the very anti-facebook money model since we started years ago.

Glad to see people waking up to the bad uses of their intimate data via facebook, and hopefully people will realize even more that sharing any info online can lead to it being used against you. Not sure that everyone will ever know and understand the full extent of how much data is actually being collected in so many ways. IT would be good to give people more concrete examples of how combining that data and putting in certain lights could have it used against you and others that you care about in ways that you never considered before.

Oh, we need more examples beyond influencing people’s votes for elections, there should be so many more examples for people to understand.

So many of these portals sell you and your info and habits to third parties who use the data to display ads that try to convince you to do things that you were not going to do before your data was used to display these things.

think about that for a bit.

Updates Jan 2018

We pushed several code updates in January 2018 and 4 more code updates on Feb 1st.

Is something broken?

I know videos are still not working on Apple / IoS devices – sorry, it’s a major issue, remind me first of March to work on that more.

If something else is not working right for you with these recent updates, please let me know…. I’ll need:

what is the issue you are having? Is there an error message?

what kind of device are you using to connect?

what is your public ip addy?
(find that at http://www.ipchicken.com )

if you cant login to send me a message, you can send form email via: https://adultsonlyspace.com/contact/

Here’s to a good year past and more to come!

Few Updates for our Chat Rooms Today

Finally got to roll out some updates to the chat rooms systems that have been on the drawing board for a long time.Many of the changes we things in the backend admin area to keep the systems running faster and having less lag for people getting rooms list and current users listing.

Check out our on site chat rooms; click / tap here.

The change that many of our members may notice, and I hope you all love, is that older rooms will now be automatically removed from the rooms list. Basically if a room is created by one of the users and left empty for more than 24 hours then it will disappear from the rooms list.

This should make it easier for people who are entering the char rooms to find currently active rooms and not be overwhelmed by hundreds of old rooms that have not been used in a long time.

Of course this also means that those of you who wanted to make a room once and have it there day after day and week after week as a regular meetup and hangout area, you will need to remake or recreate the room on a daily basis, although in some cases if the room is used regularly it may stay in the system longer than other rooms that were made and used once days ago.

Seriously appreciate those who send me contact messages when there are any glitches with the chat system! I wouldn’t know there were issues if I didn’t get those messages from you all!

Hopefully these recent updates will keep the system running smoother and faster for longer times, and we can work on other features without worrying about the chats for a while!

backend code updates today

Did some backend code updates today. A bunch of little fixes for many of the code blocks that keeps all the different pieces of this social network running. Nothing is a major change – so hopefully nothing is broken! There is hope that a few little things were fixed for some, however.

If you find something is broken from this update please let me know asap!

I know the videos are still not playing for iphones / ipads, and some mac notebooks / desktops. The good thing is that we found what we think it the cause of that problem. The bad thing is that it’s really fucking complex to fix.

We could just change the code chunk that is what we think is making it not work and reset that, but then all the previous pictures and videos would be broken. It’s hard to explain, but it’s basically something like, our pics and videos are pushed into a media file folder on this web server, and for some stupid reason the IOs devices won’t let them securely play from that folder – so we could take the fast way out and move all current, future and past pics and videos to a new folder where iOS devices will play videos – BUT then that would break all the links to the old pics and videos that everyone has uploaded over the years.

So we are trying to put together a plan to kind of do both and see what we can make happen.

Alos looking at some more things to update in the future. Glad you all are sticking with us as we make things better!

We have a new suggestion page where people can post site suggestions here.

Videos broken for some – working on fixes

We understand that videos are not working for most people who are using apple / iOs devices. After spending a fair amount of time and money trying to fix this – it’s still broken. We are working on the problem – but it may be an issue for apple to make better in future updates – we are not sure at the moment.


We also found that videos posted in groups play okay in the group activity feed, and via the sitewide activity feed – but when you click to an individual video the formatting is way off and they don’t play. We just found this issue Jan 19th 2017 – and we are working on it.

We spent a lot of money on a special video converter thing, but we’re not sure it’s working like it’s supposed to. We are looking at other video converter systems at the moment, and we’ll hopefully have several updates before summer time to make all this much better.
