The final page doesn't render properly for me since I made a new post this morning.

Oops.

Fixed it. It was my avatar not loading. I've got a new one now.

I guess that would've caused problems for anyone trying to read that thread, or any thread I've posted to before.

Webmasters, can you work out a way of stopping dud avatars causing a browser to hang? I'm using IE6 at work, don't know how it affects other browsers.

EDIT: Sorry, you've already swapped out the offending picture anyway. Note to self: Read threads properly before replying!

Well, you'll need to wait for Spanners to advise you on fixing the issue, but in the meantime you can be reassured that your avatar, although it won't load for me, isn't causing my IE 6 to hang so it's probably not causing problems for other users.

Can you email me the image that broke it so I can try and figure out the issue?

Now my new avatar has gone missing! Boo!

I'm afraid I can't post you the old avatar since I overwrote the url. Oh well, not to worry it's ok now.

Just need to find another new one...

If you find an avatar you like stick it on the forum photobucket account.
It's better than linking from someone elses site where you are at the mercy of their antileaching scripts.

Speaking of image leeching, I just realised we don't have anything in the rules about it. We ought to discourage this at the very least, and I'd recommend banning it outright, as it can lead to horrendously, deliberately non-work-safe images showing up in GM, when the anti-leech scripts kick in as General mentioned.

Good idea. We would probably need to offer image hosting on the forum if we did that though.

Yeah it would be great if Photobucket or Flickr had an api that allowed me to integrate them with the forum for easy hosting. Does anyone know of an image hosting company that does that?

Your wish is my command!

Photobucket is the most popular site on the internet for uploading, sharing, linking and finding photos, videos and graphics. Now you can add Photobucket features to your application by using our new Web Service API.

Actually has anyone played with the Photobucket API and wants to give me a hand? It's rather confusing and I'm finding myself with zero spare time at the moment!
