Re: Profile pic problems

Hi, I'm relatively new to the forum and can't seem to get a profile pic uploaded. I've made sure it is under 80x80px, under 8kb, tried a variety of different image extensions (.jpg, .gif) but it still doesn't work. Is there anything obvious I am doing wrong?

That should work... Maybe PM (personal message) Josh about it, he's been tinkering with the BB software lately...

Re: Profile pic problems

It's 80x80 at 8kb, so it should be working. Write permissions on the upload folder may be broken. I will have to look in to it.

We got the DNS back for NewMars (just found out today), so we'll be making a move to the MarsSociety server soon. I don't have an ETA yet, though, so I'm not sure when, but when it happens there will be a day or two of downtime as the DNS propogates and as the forums are being uploaded.

I'll make an announcement once I have the ETA.

Thanks, I guess I'll just wait for a bit. No worries.
