Trouble adding projects to collection Answered

I'm having difficult two days in a row now adding projects to my "Collection." I've done it a bunch of times and keep getting an error message. Any thoughts? My class contributed 21 instructables this year (7 featured!) and 20 last year and I thought I'd gather them in one spot in this collection.

Is there a limit to the number of items I can put in a collection?

1. Using Mac OS X 10.9.2

2. Safai browser 7.0.3 [tried with Firefox yesterday as well - same error]

3. Craft Technologies collection: https://www.instructables.com/id/Craft-Technologies/

4. Trying to attach a screen shot

5. Every time I click on "Add to collection" from a project, I get an error message. Tried to upload it but somehow having trouble with that. 

Thanks for your help!

That sometimes happens when you have an old cookie from the last time you logged in, or having a browser add-on that stops the page from loading completely. You can try

Disabling any script blocking add-ons to your browser, like Ad-Block, GreaseMonkey, or LastPass
Making sure you have cookies enabled for your browser
Clearing your browser's cache

After, refresh Instructables.com and try logging in again.

Did that help?

Alas, that didn't work. I cleared the cache, enabled cookies of all sorts, logged out, logged in, restarted the computer, everything (I don't have script blocking add-ons).

Any other ideas? Not sure why suddenly it stopped working. I also tried this in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome...
