Picture uploaded to title page keeps being removed after about 3 days Answered

I have had an instructable up for about a year here:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-build-self-balancing-skateboardrobotsegway-/

The picture I upload and attach to the title page keeps working for about 3 days then is removed. Consequently my Instructable has no title page picture.
I keep re attaching the image and it works OK for about 3 days then is automatically removed. It is my photograph, not taken from anyone elses website so not a copyright issue.

What is the problem?

I have just reattached the image again now but within 3 days it will have gone again.

Best wishes

That's a weird problem. I've taken a look and there doesn't seem to be anything unusual going on with your project.

There's an image there now. Can you please keep an eye on this and let me know if it happens again? Also, does anyone else have access to your account and is maybe modifying your pictures?

It seems your picture sizes seem to vary. I don't know but maybe you should put a picture that is somewhat squarish in pixel height x width. You have a retangular cropped shot so maybe the system chokes every once in a while when it tries to resize to thumbnails and all the other display sizes. Unless it is some odd format, I think jpegs and gifs probably work best.
