Title: WTF is Going on with the Avatars?!!!
Post by: The Dark Enforcer on August 21, 2009, 04:15:38 AM
Okay, first the Avatars shrunk. That was tolerable!


But now the Avatars have completely disappeared?!!! All except for Phantom, Ed,  Toltendo, and NUCC327!!!

What's going on here, Mods? I'm getting really nervous over here! I don't want our Forum to have a Nuclear Meltdown!!!

I only see a VERY small fraction of my avatar. I'm about to complain to Forumer now. :roll::x

Weird... It's not like Forumer is internally resizing the avatars, either. If you look at your avatar's image address, it still shows up in full. I think they're having bugs with a resizing script they're using, because relatively small avatars aren't affected at all.

Keep an eye on this topic (http://fhq.forumer.com/phpbb2-bug-reports/82774-avatar-issues-size-restrictions-broken.html). It seems to be where the discussion is. Forumer claims it's working on it.

Are they restricting our avatar size or something? That I don't mind so much, but...seeing one-fiftieth of my avatar is kinda strange...

Maybe it'd fix itself if we reupload the avatars? Just a thought, though I'm not sure if it'll work.

We've tried that already...and I also changed my avatar...so that path isn't going to work.

Thanks for posting that.

I was reading that this morning right before heading off to college.

They're working on the situation, just be patient.

They are attempting to fix the problem, but in the mean time, they are directing people to this thread which explains why this is happening in the first place

I don't know who the asshole was who had to complain about avatar sizes, but they sure fucked up the works.

This problem is occuring on multiple forums.

That guy needs some temple guards to pay him a visit... :roll::x

Guys, for the time being, the best I can suggest is using a smaller avatar. Now I'm hoping there is a solution for this and I'm trusting that Forumer is working on it.

So let's just chill out and wait it out, all good?

Alright. I'll calm down... Just that it's a stupid idea to show a tiny strip of my avatar instead of just downsizing. I was pissed at the downsizing, but this is ridiculous.

I have no reason to panic now that my newly re-sized avatar is working like a charm.

It's a problem and I want it fixed just as bad as the rest of you do, but just realize it's going to take a little while.

I realized something: old member The Silver Snake has the largest avatar on the forums. Which isn't even that large.

Working on it, my ass. :roll:

Alright, this is pushing it. My avatar is 100x(something) and it is STILL not showing up. And it's been upsized by Forumer to 150 and one-fiftieth of it is being shown again.

It's time to bring out the temple guards. :x

Phantom, has the problem with the avatars been fixed yet?
Title: WTF is Going on with the Avatars?!!!
Post by: The Silver Monkey on September 10, 2009, 03:16:29 PM
Not yet.

Memo to Forumer: Get off your lazy asses and fix this!

No avatars may be uploaded now. This is really out of line. FIX THE FUCKING PROBLEM FORUMER! :x

Maybe we should change hosts so we don't have to deal with this...

You have a point there. If I'm not wrong, they said that Server 6 had the most problems.

UPDATE: The avatars have returned... And still shrunken. Forumer has not fixed it completely, but it's a nice first step. :)

Notice how in the support thread some people's avatar are getting messed up? Is it just me, or does LLO's avatar appear to have the same issue?

Well thats a good first step, at least the avatars are back....sorta! Now I can up a new avvie! :D

Post by: The Bamboo Forest on September 24, 2009, 04:11:40 PM
Still, I don't know why people like The Rock Quarry and The Silver Snake didn't get theirs resized during this avatar fiesta. Screw whoever suggested to "make smaller avatars a must" in that Forumer support thread. :x

Post by: The Bandit King on September 24, 2009, 05:56:20 PM
All right! I can upload an avatar again! :)
But there's still much work to do, Forumer--get on it, please!!!
