Md5 "create" upload Error (Clarification)

Posted under General

Got this error below? then keep reading.

Error
Validation failed: Md5 confirmation doesn't match Md5

ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exception raised
app/logical/upload_service.rb:42:in `start!'
app/controllers/uploads_controller.rb:55:in `create'

This is not an error but the site detecting that the picture you are trying to post has already been posted for one of the reasons below.

1. if you click submit button before the upload window turns green.
2. the picture is posted but was deleted for reasons like being a dup, lower quality, isn't tagged correctly, or an artist requested removal.

unfortunately there is no way for a normal user to find a dup since the reverse image is broken. you will have to manually look for it.

if you are a builder or up you can use this to find your dup https://booru.allthefallen.moe/uploads

hope that helps!

Updated

we need to mine Paheal's code somehow to ask how they did it. maybe I'll ask the webmaster

just fyi one other reason you would see this error is if you post an image thats over 21000x21000 resolution size limit. (comics that have been taped together for example)

try this: compress the file (there are free services in the web for this). if this dont help, downsize the file (free in the web too).
that should solve your problem ;)

the video is already posted if hes getting the error above. or its over 1gb in size

even under 1gb, its possible that we cant upload a video. sometimes, its a mix of file size and dimension.
and correct, you will get the error message when you upload the same file (a duplicate) too.

to find the original post to add tags, click the link to see your most recent upload attempt.
https://booru.allthefallen.moe/uploads
find your latest attempted post and click the error message. it will take you to the original post if the error message saids duplicate.

Once you have found the image please fix the tags if they need them!
Hope that helps!

this just started happening to me, something I've NEVER had a problem with before. I would double check to see If the site had the same picture yet, then upload and presto, no problem.

The method given to find the duplicate original post does not work. I've tried it a couple of times, and the failed post attempt simply does not show up on that list. If it works for Cogs, then seeing failed post attempts may be a moderator-only ability. If so, then unfortunately this is not useful advice to the common non-moderator user.

@Leortha hmm you are right. i changed the topic for regular users. if the reverse image serch wasnt broken you could use that. otherwise a manual search will have to be done.

I cannot post the flash version of "superwaha". Even though it is not a deleted dup. Any ideas?

@adirla flash was disabed from uploading since it discontinuance. which is too bad imo.
