Is anyone else not seeing profile pictures anymore?
« on: February 03, 2018, 04:21:55 PM »
For me it's just showing the names, postcount & text. I tried clearing my cache, & that worked but only for a few minutes. Is anyone else having this problem?  ???

Yup, I am not when I post from work. At home it’s fine.

It’s weird though the other forums I surf at work all still work fine, it’s just this one that isn’t displaying profile pics.

This started happening to me yesterday, I can no longer see any avatars on the forum. I've checked from three different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE) and with addons disabled, still nothing. Avatars will load when I browse on my phone however.

On Firefox (but not Chrome or IE) there's a warning symbol on the SSL lock next to the URL which might have something to do with it, since I don't remember that being there before. When clicked on, it says that parts of the page are not secure.

I can see them in Chrome and in my cellphone, but not in firefox. Must be a configuration issue

Funny, i cant on my phone.  It's Chrome.   I checked the settings and it is set to show avatars.   I can see them on my computer.

sonofabitch... this just starting happening to me like 2 minutes ago.  Avatar's were there... now they're not.  And when I go and view through Safari, it just gives me that question mark in a square box as though it can't find the image/link.

Tried updating clearing my cache, updating flash, and restarting Chrome.  No dice.

Bizarre... I see them on my phone/safari - so it's not anything to do with my profile.

I see them on jingle.son's computer which is also chrome on Mac - both as a guest, and as logged in - so it's not anything to do with my router settings.

And I can see them when browsing incognito mode in Chrome.

No clue what cookie is impeding with it.

Chrome here.  Saw them last night and had not noticed them missing at all before now, so y'all is crazy.

They're not showing up now.  Very funny, guys.

Weird. I can see them on my laptop here at home, but not on my desktop PC at home or at work. Chrome on all three.

Very strange. I can see avatars at work no problem but at home they just stopped displaying about 2 days ago. I use Chrome at both places and no settings were changed.

I could see them at home yesterday, but not this morning.

At work, I could not see them earlier today, but now they're back.

Chrome both places, Windows 10.

I think it's the issue around IP addresses and the firewall/blocking software on the DTF hosting site.  When I went into my chrome://cache, and pull a specific URL for an avatar image, I got that 403 Forbidden error many of us have seen:

I've always identified users by their avatars, without seeing them I don't know who is who.

Still no profile pics, and I keep getting this message when I try to access the forums through Chrome on my desktop. I posted this using Safari.
