    When I try to make a thread in the fan art section it says "required attachments missing" even after I embed the images.
    EDIT: successfully attached one of the images but still won't work.
    EDIT 2: tried doing both images, still no luck

    Are you using the attachment system on the forums? Or are you simply posting images from another site?

    Ok. That's fine for the post itself.

    But when starting a new thread in the creative forums, you need to add an attachment. When posting a new thread in fan art, scroll down to the bottom of the screen. You will see a little button that says "Manage Attachments". Click on that and upload at least 1 picture to the thread itself. Then you should be good to go.

    What is the exact message you are getting when trying to use the attachment system?

    Also, make sure your images are not overly large. Should be less than 1000 pixels in each direction and shouldn't be larger than about 500KB. If the images are fairly large, the system will reject them.

    Not sure what would be causing that. Perhaps someone else can answer.

    I just tested the process, and it worked for me.

    Could you please screen capture the window showing the uploaded picture, with the error message you get after hitting submit, so I can verify it's showing you that even after an image is attached.

    Thanks!
