The maintenance for this morning is now complete.  I've upgraded the CG forums to version 2.0.13.

Also included in this morning's maintenance was the enabling of avatars and the installation of the per user avatar/sig disable, which I'll describe in a second.  The limitations on avatars are:

1) jpgs only, no gifs or pngs
2) 80 x 80 pixel maximum dimensions
3) 6144 byte maximum file size
4) Nothing that would be considered "Not safe for work" and no profanity.

For those folks that would rather not look at avatars, there's an additional setting in the user control panel for disabling them. Simply scroll down to the "Show Avatars in Topic" field and select "No". As an added bonus, if you'd like to disable the viewing of signatures in the topic view, there's an option for that too.

If there are any technical issues with the boards or questions regarding avatars, please post them here and I'll look into it as soon as possible.

In your profile.


I've looked there.  It is honestly not showing a place for me to enter an Avatar image or URL.  I have the options for turning sigs and Avatars on and off in topics...  Could my usernumber be a problem?  Wait..rethink that.  Tim and you have a lower user number than I. :/

Hmmm...Avatar Control Panel should be right under the regular Profile stuff.  Not sure why it isn't showing up for you.

I know! I know!

We had 6 users, including 2 staffers, that for some reason had their ability to use avatars disabled.  I've corrected 4 of them, the other 2 look like they may have been banninated or something.
