disappearing avatars
« on: May 13, 2009, 09:27:36 PM »
I have no clue why our avatars are disappearing. I have a ticket in to tech support to see if they can shed some light on the subject.

You mean I've been vilifying djm in my mind in error?? :N1oops03HL2:

DJM - I apologize.  I thought you were being tricksy with us all.

What's odd is that you and annie and a few others have theirs. They are all in the directory. Only some of us have been stripped naked of our avatars.

I'm a little more tenacious than most, I guess.  When it disappears, I go put another one out there, sometimes the same, sometimes different.  It's been exiting stage right at least 2-3 times a day.

Annie, is your avatar here via URL link or did you upload?

Mine is uploaded, and it seems to have resisted.

My avatar seems to stick until I log on in the morning and post a couple of times... then, KA-POOF. I just tried to link via URL, but, it never showed up here. So, I'm back to uploading. Seems like I have to come up with a new farm animal each day...  ::)

Trink -  So you re log in ever day?  Maybe that's the thing.  I always stay logged in, and my avatar has not gone away.

So odd. And they've not posted a single answer to this, yet.

Maybe url but I would think this is resolvable.

Can you guys see my avatar?  I can but Trinkette mentioned on another thread that she could not.  I don't remain logged in all the time but I did reload a JPG file the day after the avatars disappeared.

Oh, that's weird.  I can see everyone's avatar in this thread except for OMC's.  Not sure what to make of it.

So you can see WM's and David's?  I can't.  Odd.

On this page, right now, the only avatars I see are mine and Annie's. Hummm, interesting, Annie about the logging in and out. I bet if I stayed on, my avatar would stick. I can try it, but, you all would see my name stuck on the site forever (and I hate scaring innocent people away)! TI think I'm going to try on more time to link to my URL... I don't know why that wouldn't work. If not, I'll load another animal...

Then, logged on or not, I'm leaving to prime over the patchwork walls in the other house...

Nope. Could be I'm doing it wrong, but, the URL won't work for me... back to upload another...

OK, Trink - now I don't see yours anymore.

Oh, and as a side note, even if you stay logged in, if you're not active on the site for 20 minutes or so, your name will go off the list of people online.

OK, the the visiting belted cow is gone and you should see Got Milk on the hay bales now...

Hummm, I THOUGHT that's what happened with the inactive loggers-on, but, it is hard to know since everytime I look I'm listed (because I'm "active" at that moment duh!).   :1087:

We're now just getting somewhere with the "why" part. Now, we're trying to resolve.
