Why as so many avatars gone missing ?
does anyone know ?

Mine as dissapeared and everytime I try to put it back up it says url not valid.
I see Docmikes as gone too.

PS
I use photobucket, as sidecaranne, could this be a reason, although that's how I got it up the first time.

Good question, at first I thought it was just yours.

Paul, any idea what the problem is?

Mine was linked to my old aol webpage, which disappeared when aol shut down the hometown section, and I haven't gotten around to reposting and relinking a new one.

Oh yeah, mine was too but I wonder about Keith's and the others Question Question

It must have to do with where the avitar was hosted because they are not all gone.

I took a quick look, nothing seems to be broken on the server side. Can someone with a broken avatar try changing theirs to something new?

Unfortunately the admin control panel doesn't display what the avatar path name is - makes it hard to diagnose the problem further.

(Technical note: the avatar is a link - it is *not* cached on the hpsidecars.com server - so if the original image goes away, so does your avatar here).

Yep, looks like avatars work okay. If yours is broken, make sure your offsite storage is correct, and edit your account if needed for the new location.

I changed my photobucket selection to direct link, and it seems to have worked.
Cheers guys Big Grin
