I have family photos that were my grandmothers and am trying to post them. Everyone in these photos is deceased. But they are not uploading and are marked as "forbidden"
you get "forbidden" as a temporary message when the memories upload is still in "screening mode"
simply wait various minutes and go back to it later - and this confusing and misleading message will be gone.
it takes a while for memories submission to pass screening and during that time that is the message you get (which is very confusing)
also - the fact that a person is living or deceased - does not impact your ability to upload. YOu can still upload items to living persons (the system doesn't stop you) - but you should do so in caution in that it may be something that such person may not want posted on line.
Meredith, where are you trying to upload the images to?
Are you trying to upload the image to the FamilySearch Community?
Or are you trying to upload the photos to FamilySearch Memories?
Is the message like the one that I posted with this message? or does it literally say "Forbidden"?
I noticed this "Delay"; and, it seems to be relatively recent.
I raised this matter in a post, Yesterday, in the 'Group' of "FamilySearch.org Feedback", in this Forum.
Starting to wear thin, getting annoying ...
Documents (as an 'Image", rather than a "PDF")
This 'Message' of "! Image currently unavailable (Forbidden)" is starting to wear thin; and, is getting rather annoying ....
Hi - thanks for asking; trying to upload to memories.
Thank you! I will take your advice. I so appreciate you following up. Thanks!
Thanks. I only put in pictures of people who are deceased. I have this paranoia about identity theft. Thanks, though!
Thanks for your thoughts on this!
yes - most of only upload for deceased persons
(mainly just out of respect for these people who may not want it on line - for privacy reasons)
but here is a post on Identity theft
Identity theft is probably hundred of times more common from things you do every day
than whether or not you post a picture on line
(such as using your credit card at a store for example)
