hmm ok, now curious to know why you think this way ?

...end quote...


mainly because of the timing.
speculative, of course, but I noticed in the past instances where my avatar reverted back to a previous upload, it had always been on the occasions on which I'd changed the image more than once within a period of less than one hour. You had indicated that you'd been nowhere near the control panel. According to information passed on from the free forums admin, the initial whiteout this time was a hardware failure, for which a major upgrade was implemented in order to re-up. Shortcomings of previous systems are naturally the mise au point d’amélioration.

Strangeness abounds on the forum again!

I've been experiencing intemittent 'time outs' when attempting to visit the forum in the past couple of days.

Then, just now, I had no colour formatting options when replying to a post.

And now! - I've got a white background page with hardly any formatting whatsoever - although I still seem able to view and post in this basic page view.

Has anyone else been experiencing these proplems? (I'm on a Win10 laptop, Firefox browser)

[edit]
Also, my avatar pic has gone along with many others - but some (older?) ones remain.

I've got the same thing Steam ~ on Android smart device with Google Chrome, no background colour in either mobile or desktop view, and the text formatting is altered as well

I took a screenshot - I wonder if I can post it?


No, I don't seem to be able to add images even though the [Img] button is there.

How about smileys? No, no smileys either.

The web server reported a bad gateway error when I tried to access freeforums.org .

I hope it wasn't a cyberattack as part of the larger ongoing attacks that are occurring worldwide against the free expression of ideas.
