Anybody else notice that the avatars are no longer visible when you go into a specific thread?
Or is it just me?

It looks like we are only getting the first row of pixels.
they went to : http://www.avatarhell.com/
I noticed yesterday on the home Q&A that the Avatars were fixed at 40x30 pixels, which substantually squished many.
I think they realized they had a problem for their attempted "fix" for the "super tall" avatars, thus they took them out while trying to adjust their revision.
So, it is my fault, for using a 40x200 avatar, making them want to correct it; but their attempted solution did not work. I think I told them how to fix it 3 months ago, so it is surprising they are trying a defective method now.
Darn you Pasa, LOL! They shut us down last night and this is what we get, bad Zillow, bad, bad Zillow...
And after it took me so long to figure out how to put one in. (sigh) Oh well, I guess we'll get used to it. (sniff).
any of the mods care to comment of where they went ? Is this a glitch or are we losing the Avatars for good ?
Mr. Oz, my cats stole my red ruby slippers... can you bring me a new pair? Pretty please.... with catnip on top ?
Log ins are a bit messed up too right now sometimes.
weird without them
The avatar references actually still show up on the page source code. Their revision was not to the discussion pages, but to the algorithm for adjusting the size of images with the
They are still using ?size=40,0 for the avatars on the discussion page, but now the "0" is being interpreted literally instead of as "whatever is needed".
Similarly for the references on the home Q&A, they still are using ?size=40,30 as before, but previously that meant to use the more confining limit and scale uniformly; now they no longer preserve aspect ratio...
I think that is the key to fixing their problem; in the revision, they removed the reverence to maintaining aspect ratio for their photo-resizing software. If they will just put that back, the avatars should be fine again.
still not back
It is strange that for images inserted, the ?size-250,300 still seems to be working correctly.
But then for more recently inserted images, it appears the size statment is not used.
Obviously their programers were not in over the weekend to fix anything. Perhaps it will be working again sometime this week?
(May have to flag a post to get anyone from Zillow to read the issue, otherwise they will probably ignore it).

The issue has already been brought up to the tech people. They are currently working on it.
LOL, mpal. That's exactly what went through my mind when I saw the thread title. Get out of my brain!
So, like, they said they were working on this three days ago (Michael?).
And here we sit, Avatar-less.
I feel so incomplete.
I'll post this everytime you post TWB ;o) I'll follow you around sprinkling your avatar behind you :o)
quit bitching...You dont see my avatar either.
Is anyone having trouble posting new topics?
I had trouble posting a new topic a few days ago, but I figured out it was because my post was too long so I broke it up into two parts.
