Mods, Why Are Many Of People's Avatars Not Showing?

Postby MakersDozn » Sat Sep 30, 2017 5:06 pm

Ours is a PNG file that has met the guidelines for the entire three years that we have been here. Now our avatar setting says:

Your current avatar cannot be displayed because its type has been disallowed.

What's going on here?

I'm just a regular poster here, but I read that it has to do with psychforums.com changing from HTTP to HTTPS.

Thanks for the link, Una. Unfortunately, as one member said, the mods' answer was left ambiguous because some members' offsite avatars (which so far all appear to by JPGs) are still showing.

Very frustrating to not have clarity on this.

Well, further responses in that thread, particularly by the gentleman who appears to be in charge, indicate that offsite avatars may once again be allowed under certain conditions in a couple of months.

Someone once referred to our avatar, which we designed 20 years ago, as "the cheerful little house." It's become part of who we are.

We want our house back. :|

I have no idea why avatars aren’t showing up. I’ll send a post to an admin asking why that might be happening. Maybe a plug-in for the site broke or expired.

There's already a thread about this on Members Corner. Viola,we'd recommend checking it out before doing anything else. But if any of the other admin people have any updates, it would be great to know. Thanks.

Hi All

Pretty much what has been said in the thread in the Member's Corner- I don't really have any new updates on it at present. The avatars people are using at the moment are all ones from within the gallery of avatars that comes with the forum software. As much as they're not quite what everyone would like to use (I'd really like my ballet dancer one back), there is a decent amount of variety among them. Remote avatars should be back in the new version which will be coming soon.

Hope this helps
