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.

An update: Box.com doesn't allow direct linking to an image unless it's part of a paid Box account, which ours is not. We can link images hosted on our own website, but that will only work for images that we place in posts. It won't help with the avatar issue though.

I use Imgur. They can be kept out of the Imgur public gallery, are HTTPS, it's easy to drag/drop or lift an image from a URL, and are direct linkable.

Notice the siglines will still support an image, albeit only 50 pixels high. And the BB code eats a chunk of your sigline character limit.

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.


Hi. Just wondering if an upgrade is still in the works? Seems that the site could use it. It's especially difficult to use on mobile.

And any chance personalized, rather than stock, avatars could make a comeback?

Still up for an upgrade, no definite date but I would say sooner, rather than later. Mobile friendly will be a very welcome feature- it's not unusable as is, but it is hard on the eyes.

No idea about the avatars. I would also appreciate returning to a more personal avvy. We'll just have to wait and see.
