Avatars

Hi All,

No particular reason but does anyone know why in the past couple of weeks or so some of the avatars in the forums appear (at least to me!) as a square with a red cross in the middle :?
Some of the content of my emails look like it until I click on the message that tells me the content has been blocked, am I supposed to click on something??
(What a sad life I lead I can hear you all saying :roll: )

Regards, Chris

It means the browser (IE in this case) could not retrieve the image. There could be many reasons for this, one being the avatar used was linked to some elses website (i.e. not the posters) and that website has blocked hotlinking from external users - this is becoming more common to stop others hogging bandwidth. Other problems may be the image is auto-generated and the generating script has failed, or the image is simply no longer there (i.e. deleted).

Hi,

Your avatar is still on your account and has not been removed, it just appears it is returning 404 on your webspace.

Kind Regards,

Yep it looks like the folder called "Robs" is missing from the Anglesey first responders website.
