View Full Version : Custom Avatars not working?

I've been waiting for someone else to post about this, but since no one has, I will. The last couple of weeks I've been unable to see my personal avatar. I've gone and re-uploaded it, and uploaded ones of different sizes, and the little image placeholder box changes sizes but it won't display the actual image. I think it's affected everyone else who uses a custom avatar as well.

I'd be willing to offer up a number of my own avatar images to add to the site's pre-defined avatar library if that's an option too.

Thanks,
Andy

I just noticed that too. I'm wondering if it's a trademark infringement thing?
Mine was Coke Zero, what was yours?

Mine was Coke Zero, what was yours? I lost my avatar a few weeks ago. It was one that
I copied from a web page. I ended up using one from the board selection, it has worked fine.

I think the system is trying to display the uploaded custom avatar, because I changed mine to one that was a different dimension and the placeholder box changed to that new size, but it still wouldn't show it.

Mine was the 1962 Pepsi logo that I drew up myself eons ago when I first started messing with computers.

Back when the icon size was limited to 48x48, I used to use this one too, which is also my desktop shortcut icon for the Bevboard.

Yup, custom avatars seem to be busted, no matter if you link from another location on the Web or use the upload feature. I'm going to guess it has something to do with some recent SEO changes on the forums, but I wish they would fix it.

Maybe until they fix it I'll go back and use this old signature-line photo that I used to use....

I thought it was just a problem I was having. Hopefully the staff will look into this issue soon.
