Technorati Photo Upload Error

I believe this is bug on Technorati system. New users can't upload member photo to Technorati. Ok, let's take a look this screenshot


I have lowered the brightness intensity for area that we didn't have to see it. At the top-left corner of the screenshot, we'll found error message that displayed when we're trying to upload member photo at Technorati.
Error messages are: mkdir: cannot create directory '/var/lib/photos': Permission denied

Seems like they forgot to set permissions to write on that mentioned directory. Well, to set permissions it self is very easy, but why did they fixed this problem for so long. Until this articles is published, the problems still occurs. Is this a bug?
