  • What the Heck Happened to the Avatar Page?!

    Why were all the cool Moorcockian images replaced with primarily "smiley" variations? It's not a big deal or anything, but given the small file size required to import your own it is damaging to the look of the site IMO.

    Hmm. What's more the Avatar I selected didn't even take...

      Hmm, my Avatar has pissed off, too!

      Maybe they're all out to lunch?

        It appears that some people still have them, and the Elric style ones at that. Hopefully someone will respond soon...

          I've sent an e-mail asking Berry if he knows what's up.

          For what it's worth, I made my avatar myself and loaded it, which may have something to do with why it still shows...

            I'll look into this as soon as I can. Probably something related to our migration from one ISP to the other. Hang in there and don't hound me too much. These problems are time consuming and I have a family.

              No hounding here, I was just honestly wondering what's going on. If you recently changed ISP, that's a likely source of the trouble.

                For the time being, uploading your own avatar might be a fix. If you do not have the tools required to make one, I would be happy to make one for you. Just let me know what you want the avatar to be and I'll create it and send it to you. If you have a certain image you want the avatar to be of, send it to me at [email protected] (remove my pants first*).

                I'd personally like to see some avatars again instead of red Xs.

                *That's a krunky joke, by the way. Gotta give credit where it's due!

                  Cool, what I'd really like to have is this image:

                  http://home.earthlink.net/~deadair3/images/thekla4.jpg

                  which I link directly to on EZ Board. It'd be nice to have that option here as well, though I don't want Berry to think I'm riding him about it, cuz I'm not. It's an actual picture of me, so I'm partial to it.

                  I'll e-mail the link to you as well, but I posted it here for good measure.

                      I've uploaded those avatars again. Sorry for the delay

                        Hmm. They don't seem to have stuck, or else I'm just having weird problems with them.

                        Thanks PWV for the help with a personal one. I hope to have my own computer back soon enough that I'm waiting to upload it from there...

                          Hmm. Another weird thing I've noticed. My post count seems frozen at 77. I'm not complaining though, I like it here in Tanelorn, and it could be worse, I could have Corum's problems.

                            O.k., go figure, I post that and for the first time in forever, it goes up. Arioch controls the 'puters of the multiverse (and I mean the big one, not just this board) without a doubt!

                              I think the post count only goes up when you post the first time in a topic, or if you start a new one.

                              Multiple posts in the same topic, like me in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Alphabet, where I'm at #178, don't count.

                              But this post, another post of mine in this topic, bumps ne up to 179, so . . . WTF??
