Avatars
« on: 02 April, 2020, 10:54:59 AM »
Is it just me or has everyone's avatars disappeared? Very strange to read posts without seeing the usual images and being able to make the immediate connection to the author (obv I can read their names but you know what I mean)

The website’s having some issues ATM, and perhaps that’s extended to the forum.

I'm going to guess that they're cached on your browser - what happens if you do a hard refresh?  (of course, if you want to see some avatars, don't do this as you might lose them!)

No avatars for me, either. Also, all my notifications have stopped.

Dive a little deeper - all is not as it seems. "Cyber pandemic" on the way. Devices to be "quarantined" (disconnected).

The active topies thing seems to be intermittent - normally first thing in the morning it works for a while but then stops.

The site is definitely squirrely at the moment.

I've had to change the bookmark I use completely because it kept saying the server was not responding.  I went in via Rebellion's site and I was greeted with a message that I was blocked completely from the forum for 'stealth spamming'.

I checked using Chrome and was able to get in.  Cleared out cache's and bookmarks then tried again and did get in.

Still no icons though.

Yeah I had that problem yesterday and thought it was down, turned out it was just the URL I use for 'Unread Posts' - my default way to access has changed.

Guess it all relates to the work on other bits of the site and probably is way down the list of priorities right now.

Stay safe dear forum, stay safe.
