I find it is often very slow and you have to persevere but it has always eventually updated ... even if I had to make 3 attempts hmm

Well, I've left the room with it loading to return 5 minutes later and its still loading. Then again the avatar I am trying to switch to is slightly animated, but I don't think it's over the size limit.

I find any off-site image causes the profile to be slow to save.

Really tounge2 I've been trying on and off to put hte other paw into my signature .

Over 14 tried for sure waiting until it gives me that lovely blank white screen.

I found that I had exceeded the size limit once yesterday and putting one paw in fixed that, I then updated my avatar to be smaller so I could put the other in but it still takes forever.


EDIT: Checked file size again..For some reason my light paw decided to be 23Kb large! Going to compress and try again.(Why I can't say, it's only .5Kb on my HDD) So I'm reuploading it.

Well it's now at .5Kb like it should have been before. Let's wait an see if it works lachgroen

I do wonder if it is the script checking for file size that is the problem.

Perhaps Q should turn it off temporarily and see if profiles are better. I haven't updated my sig in ages because it either takes way too long or times out. I'd rather bring Mr Reaper out of retirement.

Any profile changes take forever to load, but they eventualy do. It's always been like this since i joined the forum. I just leave the page to load and open ld4all in another window for as long as it takes. wink

hmm I don't see a reason why it should take that long though... it might be worth investigating

Well, it has to check all the pictures. So the server connects to the server your pictures are hosted, and then tries to determine the size. So it has to do with server speed, and connection speed.

Ahh... perhaps you can first check if the signature box code has changed. If so, then you bother to check the pictures... same goes for the avatar, if its to be changed... this way you can still make other changes without checking the images in signature/avatar to speed it up!

Chris, I'd sign your petition to bring back the reaper, I really would, but that would probably end up meaning more work to me!...

I've got problems with editing my profile now too... The changes won't happen, and in the error message above the profile edit menu, it says that my signature is not valid, and that it couldn't connect to the URL for my avatar!

What the hell is happening?

EDIT: Here is the message I get.



I'm not even trying to edit my avatar, all i'm trying to do is change the part in my sig where it says "proof i'm crazy... my Dream Journal" to say "Winner of the January 2007 DJ awards: Wierdest Dream Journal"

when you change your sig it checks the avatar too, and when it can't connect to the avatar file, it will reject the change. Maybe try a bit later, maybe photobucket is very busy. Or LD4all.
