Every time I have a problem, I just figure the team is working on updates again.  But it has been days, and the site just won't let me upload pictures of any books.  I'm getting frustrated.  Anyone hear something I missed?

Go to Member Tools at the bottom of the page, and then to Upload Book Covers. That still works.

I've noticed that the Upload button on the book listing page is not working too.

As of 1-2 weeks ago for Internet Explorer 10, I still needed to use the F12 and Alt+9 trick to upload book covers on the specific book's webpage.

I was able to upload a bookcover yesterday using the link on the book details page--I'm using Firefox.  My uploaded cover is still pending approval, but it looks like everything worked for me.
