Title: Forum won't let me have a profile picture
Post by: The Dead Herring on January 03, 2008, 03:14:04 pm
The forum doesn't seem to want to let me have a profile picture, I tried pics of all resolutions, sizes, and varying levels of compression from my HDD and also through linking to photo hosting sites. All with no success.

Mods, is there something you can do to help me get this working?

Thanks,

Joe

Avatars must be no more than 100 x 100 pixels.

Yeah, what Ovi said, the forum won't resize pictures anymore.

Ah, perhaps you should put a note up there near the box saying that before people try to upload larger images.

It doesn't even give you an error message if you upload it from your HDD, the upload just doesn't appear to do anything.

Anyway, thanks for the solution.

How come Woulfe (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?action=profile;u=1492)'s avatar is 108 x 144 pixels then? Because he didn't upload it to GamingSteve, but instead linked to it?

Well... hmm... I have no idea. It shouldn't be more than 100 x 100 pixels.

Next time let me know about this sort of stuff. I was just dumb luck that I found this thread.

There was an error on the server, it should work now.

Perhaps a sticky thread for bugs?

On a similar note, I can no longer see my Jeopardy Avatar...
At first A glaring red X was shown in it's place, but now, after only a few moments, the red X vanishes as if I have no avatar.

Initially I deducted that it was stolen by a band of time traveling pirates.
Of course, I'm not exactly a computer expert...

Any Idea on what might actually be causing that?

I have no clue; I can see it fine.

Hm. Perhaps it's just the computer I'm using.
Thanks Ovi.

Sometimes avatars disappear, it happens to me every now and again but it'll show up after a bit.

Beat me to it way back in the beggining of the thread :). But yeah for some reason before I was logged in after the server move my avatar was x'd and I eventually got another one but I don't know how to resize or make my own avatar. I know it's stupid to ask now how to make an avatar the riht size (because it's probably in the help section) but I would like to know, any thoughts?  ???

I get that a lot when I'm in school. I think my school has the same computer system... I'm not sure, but I gotta ask sporelover66 if it's true. ???

Someone should message Snake Plissken and let him know he's finally getting the gratitude he deserves for that one line post from 2008.

These bots are finally able to show emotion, it's their timing that's off.

Is it true that the way moderation works on the forum has changed?

I heard through the grapevine that moderators no longer get notifications of reports. Is it true? If so, who does get notifications? And why weren't we told of this change?

I ask because I've reported these bot posts and in the past they were usually taken care of immediately, if not soon after. So far nothing has happened and I worry that it is because the moderators no longer have the ability to hear from us.

I got a reported post earlier today but I'm kind of involved in RL family stuff and haven't been at the computer all day.

This new guy I'm not sure if it's a robot or real yet. Not the usual spam. Keep an eye on him and let us know. Possible old member coming back? No idea, can't tell yet.
