Forum avatars reset
« on: 4 April 2016, 17:39:43 »
When I first log-in, I couldn't see my forum avatar as in before today. Is there a forum-related patch? I was able to relink my avatar as it was before this "patch" happened. I think the avatar removals happened this week for a reason, and it applied to everyone.
Thanks!  ;)

Heh that's me  ;D. In your case "link checker" returned very odd output and in further investigation I found out that your avatar sometimes load veeery slow, way more than 1 second
... + source was on different forum so it is hotlinking which isn't usually well liked by "owners"

I highly recommend you use Imgur to host your images. It's been consistently the most dependable, in my experience.
