news [UPDATED] Certain sections of the forum can now be viewed by all

Recommended Posts

One thing that bothers me about the going public aspect: If your picture on your profile is identified as you, that could make it easier to search you.  Just paranoid here.

I took down my profile phopto which showed my face, but now I can't upload a new profile photo. It acts like it is working, but the photo does not update. Anybody else having this issue?

Yes Mr. Lemur.  I did the same.  Took down my face pic but haven't been able to upload another photo since.  It accepts the photo, but doesn't seem to actually upload it.  I have tried a few times since I took my photo down a couple of days ago, but still not working.

Hmm I'll look into that.

There is a picture size (in pixels) limitation and a file size (in Kb)  limitation. If either of these have exceeded the maximum limits, the pictures will not upload correctly.

It's beyond that. I tried uploading a photo within the limits and it wouldn't upload. 

 

So I'm looking into it.

Just in case this info helps. I was able to change my photo if I used the import from URL method. But the upload method does not work.

Just to be clear, profiles and galleries will NOT be publically viewable?  If so then I may need to clear some images too.

Here are some screenshots of the public website (not logged in) showing what you get if you try to view a user profile, the gallery, or when you view the Introduction section where a post has a picture.

 

You get this when you try to view the Gallery.

You get this when you try to view the members' list. You cannot click on the user profiles in the posts.

Sample posting from the Introductions thread containing a picture. The picture is shown as a link. When clicked, it tells you that you do not have permission to view the picture.

I hope this clears up any anxiety.

Galleries are not publically viewable.   If the consensus wants it I can also make profile not publicly viewable too.
