Uploading covers seemingly does nothing (not even an error) -> Image is displayed later

- Go to catalog (Your books)
- Click cover of book without a cover -> Open "Change Cover"
- Click "Choose File"
- Browse to file (58 kB JPG file) and click "Choose"
- Click "Upload"

Actual result:
I can see in the address bar that the upload script loads (https://www.librarything.com/upload_arbitrarypic.php), but when the book page reloads (https://www.librarything.com/work/11909760/book/167722562) no image is uploaded. Also no image is visible in my catalog. No error was displayed anywhere, and similar images (my scanning and resizing process is the same for all covers) load fine. ETA: about 5 minutes later my images appeared anyway.

Expected result:
After passing through the upload script the book page reloads with my uploaded image as cover.

System specs:
MacOS 10.14.4, Safari 12.1, LT locale .com

>1 divinenanny: Thanks for reporting! Sounds like slowness in our image server—I'm testing.

I don't have the issue anymore, but this is a new sort of lag on LT I hadn't seen before.
