A little bit of an annoyance I came across recently was Speaker Decks inability to process a presentation, uploading wasn’t a problem just processing the slides. With no real explanation I’ve tried numerous PDF files to see where the issue could lie with no resolution.
As it turns out the warning message “We had issues processing your talk” actually had no relation to the content being uploaded, it turns out my account had been “incorrectly caught by our automated abuse/spam system“.
The resolution was really simple, I got in touch with the Github support team and within 24hours the account was unlocked and uploads worked again.
Hopefully this will stop others from pulling out their hair (I now have none).
