At first I thought I had made some sort of error myself and somehow forgotten to upload, but then it happened again... and repeated itself today, just a little while ago...
I do upload them manually. What I mean by uploading in batches is that I save files until I have several to upload at once.
Since you're seeing it too, I am curious about commonalities. I am using Firefox, are you using the same or a different browser?
(I'm not sure that even could affect it, but it was something that occurred to me.)
When you said it wasn't happening that often to you, it got me to wondering if I was accidentally exaggerating, so I started tracking data. My first eight uploads after that, 25% of them did it, but that was an awfully small sample. By the time I got to 30 uploads, It was down to 16%.

Slow the uploads down.. say one every few minutes .. instead of your latest blast of 5 downloads within 4 minutes.
There just may be times where the database hasn't finished all background processing when the next upload hits.
I'll try that. I have seen it happen when I haven't uploaded anything for over an hour, so I don't think that will eliminate it, but if I can even reduce the frequency, it's worth taking the extra time.

I am the one who submits the data, but the upload does not get listed in my history, then, when I try again, it uploads and lists, but after it processes, it shows up as 0, 0, Y, because the first upload actually went through and processed, but did not show up in my list of uploads.
This is what I'm seeing too. When I get the error message, if I don't reupload, I don't get the 0,0,Y, it just doesn't create any entry in my upload log. So I usually reupload knowing that it will be a 0,0,Y, but that entry is still a placeholder so I know how many files I've uploaded.
Here's the kicker. I just uploaded five files a bit ago, before reading that I should space them out. Two of them gave me that message. I reuploaded both of them. One of them came back with a 1865,4079,Y instead. This is the first time I have noticed the reupload returning anything but a 0,0,Y. So now I'm more confused than ever.

No worries. My main concern was that it was something that I was doing. 1974ER seeing it too means that it at least isn't just me. If we can figure out something we're both doing that triggers it, great. If not, it's still no big deal, just a curiosity.
