I encountered an issue today while uploading an image related to my answer to this question. $\pi$ from the unit circle, $\sqrt 2$ from the unit square but what about $e$?

When I clicked on the icon to add an image and uploaded the image from my computer, a new tab with the link "https://math.stackexchange.com/upload/image" opens but the image does not get uploaded. The small window on the initial screen says "Uploading..." but it never gets uploaded. (In the end, I gave up and added the image to my dropbox public folder and added the link to the answer.)

I wanted to upload a screenshot of what is happening but again I am unable to do so on meta as well.

  • $\begingroup$ You can upload your screenshot to imgur directly, and post a link here. $\endgroup$ – 75064 May 10 '13 at 17:01
  • $\begingroup$ @75064 Thanks. I have done that now. But the bug still remains. $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 10 '13 at 17:05
  • $\begingroup$ I was able to upload your image (but you had edited the post in the meantime, so I had to cancel the edit). Have you tried restarting your browser? $\endgroup$ – robjohn May 10 '13 at 17:07
  • $\begingroup$ @user17762 I meant you could use the imgur (or dropbox) workaround to post the screenshot of what is happening. $\endgroup$ – 75064 May 10 '13 at 17:09
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn Yes. I tried restarting the browser. I am on Google chrome browser on Ubuntu 12.04. $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 10 '13 at 17:11
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn Could you allow me to change my username? It says I need to wait for another $30$ days! $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 13 '13 at 17:26
  • $\begingroup$ @user17762: sure. What would you like? $\endgroup$ – robjohn May 13 '13 at 18:01
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn "Bil Dubque" Thanks. $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 13 '13 at 18:59
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn Could you change my name to user17762 on all stackexchange accounts? My philosophy, physics, tex accounts still have the name Bill Dubuque. Thanks $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 13 '13 at 20:50
  • $\begingroup$ @user17762: I have asked that this be done (I cannot do anything to your non-math accounts myself). $\endgroup$ – robjohn May 13 '13 at 21:17
  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn But I am unable to change the name on my non-math accounts. If I try to change it, it says "Oops! There was a problem updating your profile: Display name may only be changed once every 30 days; you may change again on Jun 12 at 7:14" $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 13 '13 at 22:40
  • $\begingroup$ @user17762: That is why I have asked the powers that be to do it. I can only handle math information. $\endgroup$ – robjohn May 13 '13 at 23:08
  • $\begingroup$ @user17762 Sorry about the delay. I have pushed your name change across the network. $\endgroup$ – Grace Note May 14 '13 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ @GraceNote Thanks. $\endgroup$ – user17762 May 14 '13 at 18:24
