Uploaded avatars

Post by Zero » Thu Sep 06, 2007 9:21 am

As you might have noticed, for some reason, user uploaded avatars do not show in posts. We are currently investigating the cause and solution to this problem. As of now we'll disable this feature and encourage you to use an external depository for remote avatars.

I am asking every user that has uploaded their own avatar (which isn't showing in posts) to REMOVE it in the User Control Panel -> Profile -> Edit Avatar.

We decided to mass-remove all uploaded avatars and users that had their custom avatars stored on this server have had them removed. From now on if you wish to use an avatar please do link it to an outside source.

When linking new avatars please consider the following:

1) The avatar file size should be relatively small (we recommend 16 kilobytes at maximum)
2) Please avoid animated GIFs
3) The maximum avatar image dimension should not exceed 100x100 pixels

Moderators will remove avatars that violate the directions stated above. Constant violation can result in banning the use of this feature from the user.
