What are the size limits on avatars?  I am trying to use this one but the system reports thst it is either too large or not an avatar, whatever that last phrase means.

Can't open the picture.

Try using the URL of the file. That's what I did and it worked all right.

That isn't an avatar....  ::)

It should work just fine, Jeffrey, I don't see an issue at that size and format. Back in the day there were problems with avatars hosted on our server, but they were seemingly resolved. If you have a site that you use, like Photobucket, you can do as I do and host it over there and just link it here. I've never had a problem with that....  otherwise, Rob might have a ready answer.

I tried that, and it did not load, although GMG told me it uploaded.
Settled for another one on my tablet.

I was, btw, trying to snag your befuddled fiddler for myself.

Found an URL that works, but the same image was not accepted for upload from my tablet.
So I still would like to know what was going on, for the next time.

xJay F. is offline right now, he was getting non-graphic text only pages showing. He narrowed it down to being a problem with AdBlock, which he activated to block the ads on the site.

Is anyone else having a problem with the Forum when they activate AdBlock? If so, post it here along with what browser and OS you use, and we can see if it is a common problem or if Jay is just being Jay. :)

I sometimes see avatars scrambled. It's like John on steroids.

I sometimes see scrambled words and sentences, but that's just snyprrr

I am Jay. I am online now. I still get "non graphic text only pages" when I have Adblock Plus on (just checked). My computer uses Windows 7 Pro 64. And I browse using the lovely Firefox 33.0.3.

This is Jay being Jay.

Your setup is the same as mine, except I have the Firefox update, 33.1. I don't use AdBlock though, not exactly sure how to activate it either.

Don't mind me, just Gurn being Gurn. :D

Dear GBG - Here's how to get Adblock Plus for Firefox: https://adblockplus.org/

Ah, thanks for that. I used to use this on my work computer and it did quite well. For whatever reasons, my home computer doesn't have those same issues. Anyway, I'll have a go at it. :)

Here, I don't really understand why the middle sentence + photo don't show. I tried different things like changing the picture source, doesn't change anything.

Fixed it. You left out the [/img] after the second image. It is amazing how that little thing wiped out everything until another opening occurred!
