Has anyone been getting these errors needlessly?
I have been trying to upload some pictures with proper names and they keep giving me the errors:
"Errors were encountered:
The title may not begin with 'A', 'An', or numbers
Please ensure that your submission follows the guidelines provided by iStockphoto."

For example, my photo name FROM the beginning- 'Happy Snow Bunny'... seems good to me?

I contacted support, just wanted to know if Im an isolated case...

Yep, same error when editing file info. I imagine it's just a temporary thing and all will be back to normal shortly.

Well, its been 10 minutes since I encountered the problem... maybe more since I spent a while trying to troubleshoot it.

Support has been notified, so, maybe theyre looking into it.

I've just encountered this when trying to finish off an upload. Hope it will go away soon. Want to go to bed.

Well, I think the files are still in the system, so you can always come back to it. I think it;s just considered 'unfinished'.

I'm just getting this error now with a photo titled "Anti-Aircraft Gun", but once I try to rename the file something else, like "Gun Emplacement" it still won't let it in - seems to have flagged it permanently as an illegal name. I even tried re-uploading it and it won't work.

Remove the capital letter in the title, and it's correct.
