    Just a question really.

    I’m about to do a brain dump of a project and it might contain some technical details and designs for laser cutting (that I designed myself, don’t panic about copyright!)

    Can I upload files to the project system, and can I then share them with other members?

    If it’s possible, I might even rewrite some of my flashing light code for Arduino and upload some .ino files that others can just download and run in the Arduino IDE?

    Since most of the site is wordpress based I’d say it should work. Maybe pack them as a zip and drop them in there. Filesize could be an issue (potentially)

    If all else fails I could be persuaded to share some space on my nextcloud server. So you’d have a link to files.

    Uploads are limited to images and pdf’s I believe (or at least they should be).

    Personally i would host technical docs and source code on github/gitlab and just link to the repository, if nothing else you may end up with some pull requests from me ;), or use dropbox or mega and share a folder…

    That calls for a field test!

    Let me phrase it this way: as long as the file is either ending on  .pdf or most picture file extensions the upload works. No matter what the actual upload is.

    .pdf files work fine. I do them for battle reports and rules sets / counter sheets (I don’t upload other people’s rules sets – that would be less than cool). I think there’s a 5MB limit on photos that works for the usual suspects (.jpg, .png, etc)?

    PDFs are good. I can upload 100% scaled images as a pdf for laser cutting/printing (not everyone is a fan of .dxf files anyway). For other stuff, I can host the files myself (or even shove them on a shared Google drive or something). Though I am intrigued at @sundancer ‘s suggestion of changing the extension of a .zip/.rar and uploading it…

    I’m just not a fan of GitHub – especially with the whole undo before uploading thing changing the modified dates of the files on your local machine; I get that it has lots of benefits (not least the pull/commit thing) I just don’t like it.

    But I’ll create (yet another) project shortly and start uploading stuff.

    Is there currently any issues with the site? It’s taking quite a while to save updates to project entries and on a couple occasions it’s timed out completely.  Also, new project entries don’t seem to be registering in the “newly updated projects”

    @onlyonepinman image uploads seem to be taking a while to process at the moment which is leading to timeouts, if possible resize images before upload

    Latest updates on the homepage can take a few minutes to update, depends when the cache updates

    I don’t think my images are particularly big, they’re between 700×700 and 1000×1000 pixels. I don’t take super hi res images of my miniatures as they tend to show up all of the mistakes…

    I’ve found that uploading more then 3 pictures at once tend to “break” the PS. So I to text portions first and add the pictures after the fact.

    I discovered this last week when I had to type out from scratch an update 3 times. I’d call that a learning curve.

    I am still seeing issues with projects appearing in the latest updates section.  Over the last week I have posted 8 updates to my current project and the engagement with them appears to have dropped off completely.  I have monitored the last 3 project updates and found that it never appears on the Latest Updates ribbon on the home page.  If you go to the projects page it shows up, but the home page is not updating.  I have also seen similar behaviour with forum updates as well, although it doesn’t seem to occur as frequently.

    Here’s the OTT Landing Page:

    Scrn1

    Here’s the Projects home page

    Scrn2

    This is now happening on almost every project update, certainly has been the case for the last three and it would seem that it has been probably happening for longer.

    On a related note does anyone know if there is a way to upload .heic format files to the Project System? I bought a new computer recently which stores photos in this format rather than in .jpeg but the PS doesn’t seem to like them. I now have to type the text on the computer and then upload the pictures from my phone which still uses jpegs. It would be good to know if there are plans to accept .heic files as they seem to be the future format for picture storage.
