Reporting Avatar Glitch.

I was just reading the "woman marries snake" thread in Ahto.

There was in insane glitch that replaced user Lord Darth Bane's avatar with a large signature block containing a picture of Obi Wan and an orange and black background.

You might want to check the thread to see if there's some kind of bug.

I went back to the thread again and it was fine, but I know that's not supposed to happen.

Maybe it's just Ahto being Ahto....

Using Firefox 1.5.0.4 I viewed and posted in the thread and didn't see any issue with Lord Darth Bane's post so I guess whatever it was fixed itself as RJM says

OR

the issue can be explained by the paint chips RJM can't seem to stay away from heh-heh-heh. I keep tellin' ya RJM you need to stay away from those paint chips. They're baaad. Baaad I say.

I didn't see it again either, but something was definitely wrong, the entire profile section of the post was extended to the right. It was just the one post, the other posts' profile sections were of standard format.

Again, Mace Macleod's avatar, in the "which two characters should fight..." thread.

Somehow his avatar was replaced with the coyote signature of samnmax.

Any idea why people's avatars are getting messed up?
It's not that it's hard to live with or anything, it just seems like it might be an indication of a more serious problem somewhere???

Firefox, as far as I know it's the latest version. I just downloaded it over a week ago.

I guess it could be the browser, but I haven't seen the glitch in any subforum other than Ahto Spaceport.

When there is an update for Firefox, you get a pop up that askes you if you want to update.

You should always have the latest version unless you tell it "no."

It must be an average day for me because I'm seeing samnmax's avatar where many users should have a little red/green dot to show wether or nit they are online.

Even in this thread (mine and Matt's are fine, but Bob and Cut have it)

Dude, you got to get a screen shot of this... I don't know if it will help, but I have got to see it.

Every once in a while someones avatar won't show but this is pretty rare. As for my sig showing up in the place of people's avatars this is very strange, unless of course I've been trying to take over the world in my sleep again.

I forgot to take a screenshot, but it seems alright now. I will remember to take one if it happens again.

I just had a similar problem in this thread. Every avatar was replaced by a dancing three headed monkey. I'm serious.

I had the same problem with the three-headed monkey, but in the Psuedoscience thread in JK's Senate Chambers.

That was trippy.

The monkey was me testing something in the templates don't worry about it.

I was hoping it'd be too brief for anybody to notice.

Good. At first, I thought one of the admins or SuperMods had changed my avatar out of spite or something... I know some of them dislike me. Especially Sithy

This is strange, all of the posts that don't have new post symbols in front have question marks

If you're having problems like that, it's probably a temporary issue with server or database load, which occurs relatively frequent in comparison to many others due to the sheer volume of users that pass through on a continuous basis.

It's worth bearing in mind that GUI images across LucasForums are actually hosted on a separate dedicated server to the forum itself for load reasons, and a potential outcome of heavy load hitting the server with the images can result in them not loading properly despite the forum itself seeming fine.

This can manifest in either the CSS styling images not appearing at all, or the images in your cache still loading but not those that aren't, the latter of which results in some images not loading and being replaced with the backup text (could be "?" depending on your browser).

All I can recommend is a refresh, and if it persists post a screenshot here and more importantly a dump of the source code so we can at least get a full understanding of the problem's symptoms (View > Source).
