over a year ago:
First of all, thanks for contributing to Fanpop.
So it's not like we have anything against Macs. In fact, half of our company uses Macs exclusively, and my first computer was a Mac Plus. One of the F4 worked at Apple. Even one of our hardest working Fanpop servers is a Mac XServe.
If you really are angry and must blame someone, blame Adobe. The image uploader that lets people upload big batches of images works on the Windows Adobe Flash player, but there are several bugs on the Mac Adobe Flash player that Adobe simply doesn't seem to care about fixing. (Remember, Adobe is the same company that can't seem to get Flash working on the iPhone, along with releasing a buggy Flash player on Linux; Adobe makes some great stuff, but Windows is clearly their bread and butter nowadays).
Believe me, I wish we didn't have to have two separate uploaders for image uploads. Aside from reducing the ability of Apple users to contribute, it was also more work to make than just having one uploader.
Unfortunately, those bugs mean that our special uploader doesn't work on the Mac. If they fix it, then we can change things around. Until then, the only solution seems to be either 5 at a time, or Bootcamp, VM Ware Fusion or Parallels. I know these are workarounds, but hopefully they provide some relief.
After we finish releasing our latest feature, I'll take a look at the next Mac Adobe Flash Player to see if they have fixed the bugs yet or not.
By they way, I just happened to see this article randomly. In the future, if you have a problem, it's probably more effective to just contact us directly.
