Problem importing from Posterous, import stalled
Importing a blog from Posterous, and it didn’t take. Your message says: “We’re processing your import now and will send you an email when it’s all done. If you don’t hear from us within 24 hours, please contact support, and we’ll get everything fixed.” That is repeated on this page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/ I am trying to import from http://cooltoys.posterous.com/ to http://cooltoysu.wordpress.com/ Thank you much for your assistance!

Thank you very much!
I have reset your importer.
Please feel free to try again and let us know how it goes!
Well, I tried again, and while it hasn’t been 24 hours yet, it has been about 8 and the number transferred is still set to a big fat Zero. Not so hopeful, but will check again tomorrow.
Yes, sometimes it will do everything in the last hour. It’s not that it may take 24 hours to import your entire blog, but rather that it may take up to 24 hours to reach your turn in line.
OK, I’ll keep watching, and ping you in another 9 hours or so with the result. That would be 24. :) Many thanks!
Hello? May I now make a serious sad face? Second try didn’t work either. :(((
Was any content imported?
None. I’ve tested login and password each time at Posterous directly to make sure I had it right. No problem logging in there.
Did you see any errors at all during the upload or import process?
This is all I ever see:
We’re processing your import now and will send you an email when it’s all done. If you don’t hear from us within 24 hours, please contact support, and we’ll get everything fixed.
Ok, I made a slight alteration. Please try one more time and let us know how it goes after another 24 hours.
Sorry for the delay, I’ve been out sick. There is still no sign of any activity with the Posterous import. It has been over a week since the initial attempt. Any suggestions? Other than manually copying over hundreds of posts … Many thanks!
I don’t see anything on our end that would be blocking it.
Would you please check with Posterous?
pezhammer, has it been 24 hours since you started the import process?
Not yet, but the message said “0 post imported”, since yesterday about 17 PM (CET).
Ok, please hang in there.
It’s not necessarily 24 hours for the whole process, but more like 24 hours until you make it to the front of the line. It is common to sometimes see everything imported in the last hour.
