That's my question!

This question has already been asked and answered a million times. The reason why you can't see your MOC is because the first MOC anyone posts must be moderated by the moderators of MOCpages, so it could take a few days for it to appear, depending on how long it takes the moderators to get to your MOC. :)

try reading a few pages back, this is asked about once a month.

all NEW members require ALL MOCs to be authorised before they become visible. once the mods get to your mocs they will be visible.

also there have been issues with the servers (see the banner message) due to high levels of activity. everyone has some invisible pictures at the moment.

Bear with it they will appear eventually.

The guys above answered the question nicely. I had your membership in my moderation rounds this morning. I saw that your pics are not being added to your posts. There may be something that you're not doing right when uploading. Please be sure to follow all the directions when adding a post. I did delete the page you tried to upload (not because you did anything wrong mind you, just for general housekeeping). As I said in the comment that should have been emailed to you (if you chose email notifications during your setup), please try again. As soon as we get a post from you that has (visible) pics we'll be able to approve your membership.

Good luck and welcome to MOCpages!

Are you on a Mac or a PC?

I've been having problems with loading images on a Mac.

I also have Java (on both Mac and PC) but it seems to want to load the Java before uploading.

Have you tried dragging and dropping pictures into the loader page?

Yes, I have PC. But maybe I will try to drag the pics.

I get that problem with a Mac. Have you tried the old uploader? That always seems to work.

That is the one I tried it on. It still didn't work.

When the pictures finish uploading, do you see "Continue" and underneath that, does it have ALL the pictures that you uploaded? If it does, and when you click "Continue", the pictures still aren't there, it could be that you waited too long. Sometimes that happens to my brother (I can't remember the last time that happened to me, but it happens a lot to my brother). If the pictures aren't there underneath "Continue", then that usually means that the picture sizes are too large. Try uploading two or three pictures at a time. I rarely use the new uploader, so these probably don't apply to the new one. Use the old one.

Hope this helps! :)

Sometimes I get some weird num. and letters and it says my pics. were uploaded but when I view my new page it says no pic. and I have no choice but to use the old uploader because the new uploader won't let me upload my pics. because I don't have java but I do have java.

Remeber, when you upload pics they won't show as actual pictures on the upload page, they'll be in chunks of HTML code. When you hit the continue button it'll take you to the "preview my page" page (that sounded redundant). If the pics aren't showing up there then there's a problem with your initial upload. Make sure the pics aren't too big (I can't remember the number off hand of what is recommended but it's around here somewhere...) as that may be one of the problems.

Let me see if I can find the size recommendations (if anyone else finds em first go ahead and post em please) so we can eliminate that problem from our options list.

I have had only a few creations that have the HTML, the rest of the creation posts don't show up when I click continue. I think the size is 800x600.

I got one creation submitted, it is a cross. By the way Chris I would like permission to start another help group, it could be really useful I think. Can I?

I approved your account earlier today. Good luck here on the pages! As for another Help Group, we already have this official one. We also have an Advice group that is geared more to "how to" stuff and less "problem" stuff so we really don't need any more "official" ones. I appreciate your enthusiasm and hope you have a good time here! ~ Chris.

The reason why the uploader is a bit on-and-off on a mac is because Apple has their own version of Java pre-installed onto the operating system, but you must have the most up-to-date version or else the uploader won't work. It's happened to me a few times. Good thinking to restart your computer, too.
