Hello there,

As a security measure we have been forced to remove remote avatars - so you can now only use avatars which you upload to gmc. edit - this only concerns new avatars.

This problem caused a security allert today which forced us to "close" the server for a while. My apologises for this.

Well that may be because your system has cached the avatar in a tempory file. If you refresh it might disapear ! smile.gif

This is only for new avatars - if you try to change your avatar to another remote one, you will find that the field is gone.

I´m guessing it´s an avatar (representive picture on your profile.. sort of)

that´s uploaded on another server then gmc.

For example http://madeupadress.com/acoolgifpicture.gif


From now on you can not get that picture into your profile unless you save it on your computer and then upload to gmc server. The linking option has been removed due to security reasons..

If I got it right.... :S biggrin.gif:D
