I'm baffled, then.☹️
Report it directly to the Webmiss, if you haven't already done so.

Pleasant day, whenever I tried to add multimedia videos with the person in video. The video playback path gets corrupted, Iíve done my troubleshooting with YouTube and it wasnít the problem. However, on this website itís not allowing playback. Iíve uploaded before and it wasnít a problem. Was there an update that is now hindering these new submissions to be added? How do I go about uploading recordings from files and not from YouTube?

Using Tor, Brave, Firefox, Chrome, even with Linux the issue remains, clearing history makes no difference. And yes the Webmiz was informed about this weeks and weeks ago.

If it is a site problem, why is it not happening to everyone? Perhaps it's something outside the control of the Webmiss. I'm sure by now  she would have fixed whatever the problem is, if she were able to.

It crashed on me yesterday for about an hour. It's definitely DUP because all the other sites I go to work fine.

I was able to post a poem early this morning, no problem. Then I went to post another and I was bumped off the site for two hours. I havenít attempted to try and post the second poem again. Hopefully this time it works. This is infuriating.

It is frustrating. Sometimes I can't even get it to save a draft.

Lately it's been glitching & not allowing me to type a comment even. I have to sign out, wait a while & sign back in to try again. Don't know if anyone else has been having this trouble

Yes, I have been having that problem too. In fact it just did it while I was trying to leave this reply.

It's a relief when you click submit and everything works but it's a real bitch when it doesn't.

It seems like there is a lot less posting lately, I find myself struggling sometimes to find new reading material. Iím pretty much dedicated to DUP and donít post elsewhere. I know how frustrating itís been. Iím wondering if people are losing faith in the site due to these problems and just giving up. Just my thoughtsÖ

Yeah, the problem is still persisting with me too... I did contact the webmistress once again recently about it, but I heard nothing back about it since. Tonight, I was unable to post even one written work before this issue struck, once again when I was selecting my themes. As per usual, whenever this happens, I use my VPN and I have zero problems whatsoever (I'm using a Portugal server since it's one of the faster servers my VPN offers). Luckily, the issues I had with it being slower and with me being unable to post images to go with my writings when using a VPN seems to be no longer issues. Now, when using the VPN, this site functions for me pretty much the same as it used to. So, I was able to put up my two latest works thankfully, associated images and all. But it is very distressing that I have to use this makeshift workaround in order to not have problems with the site! I wish the initial bug, or glitch, or whatever the problem is could just be fixed so I wouldn't need to use my VPN whenever I want to pop on DUP and post things. *Sigh* I have cleared my browser's cache and history, tried different browsers, you name it! Only thing that works is using a VPN. Whatever the problem is... it's a weird one for sure.

Yesterday was the first time I was able to get logged in to DUP in a month without getting booted off the next thing I clicked on. I hope the issues are fixed!

Her said:This has been happening to me for months. It's happened three times today alone. Once while submitting a new poem and the other two times, just losing a secure connection to the server.

What Her has described has been happening to me the last two days, made me wonder if DUP has been crashing? Yet I see other people still able to submit new poems on this site.
