Disappearing Avvies?

Post by DaemonCorps » Sun Sep 02, 2007 5:56 pm

Every once in a while, some people's avatars on the board just disappear. It's nothing big, but it does get kinda annoying after a while, since I tend to connect the avvy with the user. Is anyone else having this problem?

No, I'm not having this problem either, though I do what you do too. I tend to connect the avvy to the user and to me, I still imagine you (DaemonCorps) with the Gohan one you used to have.

You'll get used to it, Chibi G. Grasp the awesomeness that is The Adventures of Pete & Pete. :D

No, I've never experienced this problem. The only time I've seen avatars disappear is when they're pointed out to exceed the size restrictions.

In my case, I was trying to find a new avatar to put on, but deleted my old avatar prior to finding my new one. I gave up eventually, and never bothered to update my avatar. So, whoever wants to see my avatar again, I'm terribly sorry! :oops: I can safely bet that the others share the same situation as me.

Also, if the site an avatar is linked from goes down, or deletes the file in question, or imposes hotlinking restrictions, the image will not show either (replaced by the 'Red X' or 'Question-Mark Box').

I deleted it. It exceeded the maximum allowed size of 80x80.

Folks, your avatars aren't "not working". You either fucked up, or you both fucked up AND they were removed for exceeding the allowed size.

What ISP are you guys connecting through? If for some reason certain image hosting sites are blocked or not responding, the avatars will not show up. So if the avatars come and go, it sounds like you are only making intermittent connections to those sites.
