Fix your pix
« on: November 10, 2017, 07:47:33 PM »
Can active players--at least--take the time to fix all the broken pictures they have in their forum profiles?

It's mostly from the Photobucket change, and it makes everything kind of ugly to see so many of the broken image links.

Thanks!

Iv been trying to fix mine in other sections as well, but its proving to be hard to figure out which pictures go where or what was even there before Photobucket went dumpster bucket >..> At this point i just deleted photobucket after i saved what i could and reuploaded to imgur :/

Pro tip if you have the time to do it, go to your profile, and click "Show posts". it will give you a list of posts and it will show you if there's a broken image link. I did that, I admit I still have more to comb through, and it made the process simpler.

I don't know it for certain, but--aside from the ugly appearance--the missing images might be causing pages to load more slowly. It would be better to have no image than a broken one.

I can't :)

That's why it's a request rather than an order!

It doesn't slow down page loading, in fact, it should load faster! :P

I selected the following settings in my profile years ago!:

"Don't show users' avatars."
"Don't show users' signatures."

There... problem solved, loading time reduced! Splendid solution for cellphones on low bandwith packages too.
Best Regards!

Sure. But then I don't see anyone's avatars or signatures...and a lot of players have put work and effort into theirs.

If I didn't care about aesthetics and appearance, then all the broken images wouldn't bother me in the first place :)

ETA: Thanks for pointing out the settings, though. That is helpful for those on low bandwidth.
