juSt noticed after last night's down-time that we can no longer upload an avatar pic directly to this site. we can only link to an off-site pic now.

sign of budget restraints?

During the white-out I had a look at freeforums' home site - it seems many forums were down due to some kind of hardware problem. Maybe that functionality will be restored in the fullness of time? Can images still be directly uploaded? (I usually link as it seems to be easier to control image size, etc)

,apparently not ~ I just tried four times unsucessfully, as in this case the function
buttons are still there (unlike the avatar upload option) however the button to place the image in-line does not apear, and when the screen refreshed the image name got erased.

there are other anomalies present as well ~ right now I am typing this text outside of the editing box !

^ have an Onward Christmas?
:-D

...well, perhaps it is only affecting mobile devices (?)
I tried again with both Chrome and Firefox, each in 'mobile site' and in 'desktop' mode ~ no dice either way!

I will have to upload off-site & link here, at least for the time being
:?

I also just noticed that a few (not all) of the images I had previously uploaded in various threads are currently not displaying.

[Edit] :

it appears that all of my older pictures uploaded to this site (posted longer than 60 days) are now gone.

I'm wondering if these just got lost because of the recent server hardware fail, or if it means there is a time-limit to photos uploaded to this domain. (?)

Noticed it myself. Puzzled momentarily and then pondered possible "spring cleaning"

I'm getting frequent temporary white-outs at the moment - when I refresh the 'new posts' page, about 50% of the time I just get a white page. I get the page after one or two tries but it seems there's something amiss in the bowels of freeforums.

Anybody else experiencing problems?

Have you seen the documentary citizen 4. It may help to explain some of the anomalies on here.
Apologies if that sounds too condescending, It's just that, well it blew my mind.

Seeing as I haven't seen citizen 4, it doesn't sound at all condescending. I'll have to see it I can find it on YT.

It did make me think that The Machine might be on the blink, though. I might even have to leave my hexagonal room and go outside if this keeps up. :wink:



[edit] Ah. The Snowden documentary. I've not seen it.

on previous night's downtime I rec'd a message saying the servers are in the process of being upgraded, final stages of that process to be exact, according to.

My cat avatar disappeared overnite & was returned to the previous one. I had no hand in that process & at no time went into the User Control Panel !

That has happened to me also, Smug ~ on multiple ocassions over the years, having no apparent connection with any whiteout, at least to my knowledge, in my case. It is probably related in your case though, I would guess.

I just noticed I can once again upload pics directly to this site, the way I always did in past, however most of the lost pics are still gone but a few stayed and a few came back, but it seems the majority are now black holes, making most of the accompanying texts incoherent or inapplicable.

I suppose I will be less inclined to include them now, since they seem to be built on an ethereal framework, wheras text appears to have more stability in the magic cyber kingdom!
