Hi there,

It's been a while since I've been very active, but for some reason I cannot upload an image to the avatar from my computer, and have problems creating a signature.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Levi

And suddenly my avatar was replaced by some strikingly handsome man! Oh wait, that's me... :wink:

Thanks for the report. Did you see an error message or anything? The avatars have file size and image dimension restrictions, and you should get a red error message if you're outside the limits.

Hi Roger

Thanks for getting back so soon. It looks like I can edit the signature all right, but the upload avatar goes to some kind of a dns error

“Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

res://ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm#http://i ... ode=avatar

It used to automatically re size images. Is there a way to upload, forward, or use an image location from another site?

Thanks,

Levi

Hi Admin

I have had the same problem with uploading pictures in personal messages?

I have noticed lately since you made some changes of a cookie named (kontera) after every time I visit ISpot.com, WHY is this?

Avatars:
I've turned on the ability to use avatars from other sites, plus some of the auto-resizing features. Not sure what the IE error is, but our site shouldn't have DNS issues at all. Perhaps there was a problem at your ISP? If you're still having a problem, please let me know.

Cookies/Ads:
The Kontera cookies are showing up now because we've re-enabled Kontera ads, the double underlines that display ads when you hover the cursor over them.
