Testing default avatar

Gals and guys, in case you didn't know... To make your avatar transparent, i.e., get rid of the background box and float in space, then your avatar must be PNG or GIF and the transparent color is pure white. Your avatar can also be an animated GIF but it is discouraged as too distracting.

I didn't like that 'Viewed x times' nonsense shown under attached animated GIFs, so I got rid of it. For example:

Send PM to Rocky to discuss.

I'll check into it. You're right. Guests should see the correct avatars.

Members are responsible for their own avatars. I can change the default avatar but I don't mess with member configurations.

BTW, the Moose Approved/Curly Approved rank has been corrected to Curly Approved/Moose Approved.

Voila! Got rid of the transparency. I hope the new default icon is sufficiently boring to encourage members to change it.

Are you listening gonca?

Ah, OK, have to flush browser cache. Still the new one looks yucky. Don't need that transparency. I'll try to find a good one. At least I know how to do it now.

I tried a lot of stuff to change the default avatar but it remains stuck on the gears. Will try again later.

Re: Forum/website backup?

Sure, DG , no problem. Things are backed up in two steps: 1. tar.gz the entire account through the cpanel. Download the tar.gz to an HDD on my PC. 2. Export the SQL database through the phpbb Administration Control Panel and download the result tar.gz to the HDD on my PC. There are three HDDs that I...

I enabled the 'Contact us' link a couple days ago and started getting spam through it within hours. Friggin' spambots!

Just fiddling to try to fix something wrong with this subforum. If you have moved a thread that had the 'Last post' then the subforum shows as having No posts in the Last post column (instead of reverting to the previous post). I fixed it by just making this useless post. OK, enough futzing around f...

Yes, it's well-known.

I was thinking it could encourage members to set their own avatar, but I see your point.

Hated the question mark so implemented a default avatar extension. It applies only if you have not assigned your own avatar. Right now it just uses the extension's 'gears' avatar but that could change. Suggestions welcome. Maybe the old 'boring' avatar I used to use. ;)
