Has anyone else found that half the Avatars are missing when reading the message base or is it something gone wrong on my end?   huh

There are some strange things going on in the forum software.  I'm currently investigating...

Roma:

I brought this to the Technical Team (Robo) early yesterday when I ran across the issue. At the time I seemed (from the mod group) the only one having an issue. GIF files play fine, but no JPGS and possibly others.

Here is what I did though that fixed it - HERE at least I found it to be an INTERNET EXPLORER v.8 issue - no other browser I use has the problem, so for now if you have Firefox, or any other browser PLEASE give it a try.

You could also in your profile shut off the avatars until a problem is found, but I like to keep an eye on when Internet Stuff comes back to life.

We have a really brilliant technician working on this - he indeed is the fellow that makes every work as great as it always does. I'm just glad you had the similar problem - I thought it might have been someting on MY SIDE because my AUDIO CHAT VENTRILO stopped allowing sound to come through - I could see people's lights coming on and no voices ALTHOUGH I had everything cranked up and clicked in the right position.

Sadly though, my $30 mic (USB) stinks and the one I have been using died - the only one left for now is on my laptop built-in. So I can still talk and trust me, after just getting back from the largest (I think) gathering of Beemaster Members (many who were in voice chat) I wanted to hear and talk and nothing was cooperating. BTW - that is fixed, I just had to go in Windows Volume MAster (or whatever Vista calls it) and just barely move a slide bar - almost as if it were the old days and real potentiomenters still were around and a corrsive or worn spot appeared. After moving the slidebar, all was fine and I got an hour in there at least.

Thanks again for pointing out the issue. Some forums FROWN against using AVATARS, here though it is a way to EXPRESS OURSELVES and change as often as we wish for holidays, or if a better photo comes along. I think it is something that is PART of our group that nearly everyone appriciates.

NOTE ON AVATARS

Okay, I have explained this many times, but for you who are on dialup - you can go into your profile and place a click in a box stating DON'T SHOE USER AVATARS and they will not be displayed, allowing for faster loading.

No, sir, I use FireFox exclusively and I see no avatars, including my own.

A big THANK YOU for the hard work done maintaining, troubleshooting, and fixing the forums!!!

I found some issues in the code that may have been the cause for the avatar issue.  Unfortunately if you uploaded your own avatar, you will need to upload it again.

I am leaving the chat offline for a day or so more to make sure things are stable.

The other problem is a re-occurance of an old issue--I now have to sign in at each visit instead of being forever on.  I checked the forever on and I still have to sign in.   It's nice to see the avatars back but they are about twice as large as before.

Brian,
do you use any programs that clean the cookies from your web browsers or do not allow cookies to be set? If so,that is why you have to sign in each time.
Any privacy program may cause this.

No I did not.  I had the same problem on 2 different computers that I have.  Both are set at forever sign in.  Today things worked the way they should as far as sign in is concerned.  Could we be having a hacker problem?

Yes, we were hacked.  As of last night, things should be back to normal.

With the exception of being able to upload your own avatar.  That was the means of explointing,  so until a fix is made in the code, you will need to link to customer avatars.
