Title: Avatars
Post by: Joe Sr. on September 05, 2012, 03:29:07 PM
I just went to change my avatar, and now I don't have one...

I even tried going back to my old avatar. But it appears to no longer appear.

I am uploading.  I tried linking to photobucket, but photobucket appears to be having issues today.

I can get an avatar if I use on of the generic ones, like Emilio Estevez or Limp Bizkit.

Am I doing something wrong?  Is there a specified file type/size I need to use?

Mine's gone too.  Must be something going on with the AHA servers.

I can see yours.  But I cannot see mine.

Funny...I can't see mine, yours, or a whole bunch of others on the forum.  I do see a couple that look like they are linked from photobucket, but no uploaded ones.

I'll check with IT but AFAIK there haven't been any changes lately.

Thanks, Denny.  I could see mine earlier this morning, but when I changed it "poof."

Now that I've raised the issue, I better find a damn good avatar...

Mine is the only one I do not see.  At least on this thread, for sure.  Pretty sure on all others but not willing to invest the time to check all other threads.  At the least, there have been avatars on the threads I have checked.

I noticed this the other day as well.  The only ones I can see on this page are Denny, Darkside, and Will Farrell.

I just figured that red Xs are the new chic.

(my avatar has disappeared from my profile page too, it will not re-upload either)

No red X's for me. I only see blue question marks. Its this way from my phone and kindle fire.

On my iPhone I see a blue box with a white question mark.  It's been that way for at least a week.  I figured it was just one of those things not available on Apple- like Flash.

Post by: tygo on September 06, 2012, 10:13:54 AM
I get a white box with a little red x inside on IE.  On firefox I don't see anything.

Edit - I'm on IE9 by the way.

I'm on IE now and tygo's avatar looks just as he describes, but the other two on this page appear fine.

For whatever reason it looks like PHP's SESSION_ID is getting concatenated to the dl query string, and appears to be invalid. I would suggest not including the sessionid in the string.

No, but you can buy me some Bears tickets. Or rather, for $500, I should say Bears ticket.

Last time I bought 'em they were $75 face value.  But that was a few years ago.  Regardless, $500 should get you some nice seats.  December?  Packers?  Bring your coveralls.

You should try going! It's totally possible. Last year for Bears/Vikes our little guy had a great time, stayed up the entire game and clapped whenever everybody sang "Bear Down."

Both my girls have Bears cheerleader outfits.  But they refuse to sing Bear Down anymore.  The boy, regretfully, has inherited a Grossman jersey.

They won't sit through a broadcast, either.

1 hour, seventeen minutes to kick-off.

I did not.  When mine "disappeared" I tried to use photobucket to upload a new one, but could not access the site for some reason.

I have not since tried again.

Denny- I'm using FF right now and cannot see them, but they are all there if I use my iPhone.  Maybe it's a FF issue?
