Missing Avatars

Lots of users avatars seem to be missing in action (including mine)?

We're having some server issues, apparently. Tech is currently looking into these issues already, and hopefuly will have everything back on stream shortly.

Thanks, Tom.

I re-uploaded my avatar and it's there now.

Still seems like a lot are missing. I guess they are still working on it.

OK, those of you that lost your avatars, the simplest solution is going to be to upload the file again. What happened was the database crashed in the middle of an upgrade and the files were simply lost in the crash.

Mine was stubborn and survived the server tribal council...still, don't I have about 75 million pictures related to Rollfasts, Schwinns and Western Flyers?

I don't think they have rehab for that, you know...

Have you tried finding it on GOOGLE? I have seen other person avatars from other groups there?

Search for aham23 or bike forums...

If that IS your blog, the Paris Roubaix pics look FANTASTIC!

So I have found a few of your blogs and posts. Keep moving down and if you had the avatar/pic somewhere else it may show up.

Googled it. You were up at the top, oddly enough.

How do you turn sigs off and WHY?

Still not working. Tried it about 20 times since reading this post. No luck.

Oh well, I was thinking of changing it anyway.

That's not it. But I do prefer your new avatar to the old one. It's a lot easier to see the Cheshire cat. What's the story behind your choice of avatar?

It's not just finding the avatar. It's remembering how to put it in its place.

[This was also posted in “technical issues”.]

I’m having trouble with my profile picture (aka Avatar). About a week ago the picture I had had for a couple of years just disappeared. I’ve tried, using the user control panel (UCP), to upload a new one. According to the UCP, I now have a “jpg” image loaded but it doesn’t show when I post. Any ideas?

Mine has apparently completed it's special purpose here in this lower spiritual realm and deliberately buggered off/skarkered back to the higher spiritual realm from whence it came. Or it just gave up.
