Problem uploading FTR files after competition

Post by Bravo Zulu » Mon Dec 03, 2012 10:58 am

Every day is the same problem. I initiate the upload and get the message, "initializing the server...please wait" but then nothing happens for a long time, several minutes....I have waited 5 minutes or more. I have succeed by going through the process many times looking for an open server. On day 6 I was not able to get on an open server until it was too late and was penalized for a land out even though I finished the task. \

What must I do differently to get my files uploaded?

What's your pilot name (the one used in simulator)?

I have had the same problems uploading my FTR. I never received credit for day one. Now I save my file, go to another computer and upload.

I would still like to be scored correctly for day one

For the very few who get this problem:
- Don't wait 3 hours, the upload is a matter of seconds
- If it doesn't work, try again.
- If it still doesn't work, try again.
- If it still doesn't work, check on result page your result is not there (your browser is bad but it mays have posted your FTR)
- If it still doesn't work, check your settings: antivirus disabled? anti* disabled? then try again
- If it still doesn't work, use another browser (use Firefox or Chrome) then try again
- If it still doesn't work, post your FTR on Pilot Ranking List before the upload is closed

You could save some time and download Firefox and use that instead of IE - worked first time :-).
