Thanks partner. I feel like I need to do a little Bowie recognition though. Frustrating that I can't get the image up that I want.

Is it an unusual format?  Even if not I'd probably open it it Paint, save it again as some other file type like jpg, png or gif, and see if it works in the different format.

Also if it is a huge file, or a tiny image.  Though mine is a pretty small image it blew up to fit.

I tried .jpg, .png. and .gif. No luck. Image size isn't that big and it's less than a 100K file size.

Just an observation but seems there are less posts on each page especially current page then before. Like the format but this....

Something just changed overnight. Not sure what, but I have no formatting/style when viewing the FFA on my work computer. Still formatting on my mobile phone, but only after disconnecting from the work WiFi connection. So something changed. Perhaps my work blocked the style sheet source or something. Not sure if FBG changed the source to something on the existing blacklist, or my work just added it overnight. The boards are just plain text/html now. Yuck.

Had some issues there for a few minutes with the format on my PC, but everything seems to be back to normal now

OK, so maybe it wasn't just me.

 

Whatever formatting disappeared looks to be back now. Weird that it was unformatted on my work wifi but I had the style when I went off the mobile network.

Apparently developers doing some work on some of the other broken stuff that had been reported.  Avatar uploads, not sure what else.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

:thumbup: Using my phone - which is a Samsung S6, so it's not like it's some antique or anything - to do anything more than completely necessary web browsing (other than e-mail checking) while I'm away from my home or office is unthinkable to me.  And most of the time, "completely necessary" only means I need some legal research done on the spot.  I check the FFA when I'm at home or the office.  And because of my setup, I often prefer to do so via a (gasp) computer rather than my tab.

Glad everyone asked about that.  And now, back to the board upgrade and associated fun.  :oldunsure:

Any chance that the friends lists get re-established?

ETA:  Yes, we know it's some other company that controls the boards.  What kind of psycho thinks it's an improvement to rip friends from profiles?  WTF kind of company is that?

Some ####### at that company needs to be curb stomped.

At least it's easy to see all the great new board features that came out as a result of my avatar sacrifice.

I had no idea that chat board software was so complex in 2016.

So do I feel special if my avatar is among those that are messed up?

Did you get a PM stating you will be receiving a free FBG tshirt to make up for the error?
