A lot of the profile pictures are not showing. I believe that was true on Sunday as well. Is there a server problem?

We're experiencing a problem with profile photos. Not everyone was experiencing it at first, so we didn't catch it. Our developers are working on this and hope to have it fixed soon. Thanks for your patience.

It doesn't seem to me that it is a big deal - I never see it more than VERY transiently. Often all it takes is a refresh. I have never seen it last very long.

It definitely seems to be affecting different computers at different times.

It may be the computers in this case. At the current time, one of mine shows the pics, another doesn't.

That seems a little ambiguous. Maybe you can be a little more specific in identifying or describing what problems the website is having. That might make it a little easier for the website programmers and technicians to fix the problems without spending a lot of time trying to guess and try to solve what "problems" you seem to know about. Otherwise they might spend all their time fixing other problems and never get around to the ones you know about, and you'll never get "your" problems fixed.

I see all the pretty pictures! I see the silhouettes as well! No problem here!

It's never their server, sjlevine, it's always your computer....

Hide the avatars (under member prefs) and the pages will load faster and look cleaner.

I have seen that periodically, it is usually transient in nature and not very frequent.

Maybe they contained inappropriate pictures?

For what it's worth, I haven't noticed any profile pictures not showing, at least not in the threads I normally frequent (for the "regular" members in those threads), neither Sunday, yesterday, nor today.

Hi sjlevine,

The profile images seem to be all loading and displaying as intended on our end at this time, what happens if you try a computer/device with a different internet connection, or a different browser?

There is a setting under Member Preferences to hide avatars as well.

Thanks for your patience.
