Yes I get it now. This is not the finished map thumbs but the image in this particular thread. Sorry for leading everyone astray there.
I don't know why it isn't showing up. If I click on the link I get the full image but the link is shown as text not picture for me too. It must be that the bulletin forum software has it marked that way or cant locate the thumbnail and has opted to show some text. The HTML behind the page is asking to show what you see so its not like there is an image there that the browser cant get to and is doing the substitution, its the forum software generating it like this. My only suggestion is to edit the post, delete the attachment and then re-upload it.
I tried that in one of my posts, even changed the jpg characteristics (in PS you get three options for saving...baseline, optimized, and progressive) and it still happened in all three so I just left it.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

yep, I got a question mark instead of a thumbnail as I uploaded
What was the file type and extension.. .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .gif?

almost always upload jpg - and this was too .. the only other files have been png compasses, but they worked fine. And the problem were in the finished maps section - not that I can see that should matter, but with computers you never know
In the interest of transparency, I wanted to update that it looks like a bug.
We are not the only vb4 site experience this...
I've asked Robbie/Arcana to submit a support ticket on this. Hope it gets resolved soon.
I've run a job so everyone's thumbs should now be there. Keep an eye on things and post here if there are issues.
(two png files failed to get thumbs.... I'm looking into them)
I'm having this same problem here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...Encounter-Maps
I'm sure I've done something wrong but I can't think what.
EDIT: Fixed by waiting for an hour then re-uploading everything. Took forever but it all works now.
