Remote avatar will be back in the new version (only permitting https links), the new version will be mobile friendly as well and a very nice new design. Please hold on, I'll give you some news quite soon. The migration is intended to take place in November or worst case in December.

Stay tuned, I'll make new announcement about it as soon as I get a clearer view on the upgrade date.

AZ.


That's exciting. Thanks Allan. It will be nice if we can get avatars back then too. :D

Would Google Drive or Box.com (both https) be examples of an file-hosting site that qualify as secure enough to meet the new standards?

Eagerly awaiting the chance to get our 20-year-old avatar, which we designed, back on here.

And what's up with this message when we try to link to the image at either of the above-mentioned sites?

It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.

Sometimes an oddball image, especially if for some reason it's not an absolute direct link, I think- will cause the system to not be able to read image data properly. I've run into that a time or two with like oddball file extensions or something. I usually resave the image to wherever and try again. I know Imgur sometimes likes to put crazy things at the end of a filename when you online edit it.

As far as I understand something that is https will work in the future- that would include Imgur also.

Good. I'm getting tired of all these avatars. They're all so homogenous and lame and washed out (Except your tinkerbell Snaga).

It makes it seem like everyone here is on thorazine.

Yeah most of them are kinda bleak. We just have to be patient.

Thanks, Snaga. We know that Google is kind of weird about how it maps URLs. Kind of a "trust us, you don't need to be concerned about this" kind of thing. :roll:

Well, no; we do need to be concerned about such things, especially if it's for hosting purposes. Box.com's links are more user-friendly. We use Box for both work and personal.

We've already tried re-saving the hosted files. Guess we'll have to put up with the insipid hot-air balloon for now. It vaguely resembles another image on our website, but it's not as original as our logo avatar.

I just noticed the gallery feature. Where did all those pictures come from? Is the site paying royalties to use all those (copyrighted) images or is it based in a country where there is no copyright?

PS: I don't know if you mods realize it, but there is a picture of Jesus under "Fantasy". (It's the one with a man in a white robe looking into the clouds with a white dove flying over his head.) It would be most respectful if you recatagorized it. Thank you.

The gallery feature I believe is something that comes with the forum software as a set of default images that users are able to choose from for an avatar. I assume that any copyrights for the images are taken care of by the creators of the forum software- or they are images in the public domain. The forum software this forum uses is also used by a number of other web forums too- forums devoted to a lot of topics other than psychology like this one. We have no ability to recategorise images to different groups, and similarly, we cannot remove images that would be inappropriate for use on this particular forum. Where someone has chosen an image that is not appropriate for use here we would respectfully ask them to choose another.
