Anyone else see that their avatar changed? Seems a good number of people now have a bellina as an avatar. Also, seems some peoples names now have new colors to them. Maybe Peter is playing with the forum, but wanted to be sure it wasn't acting up.

I have a wonderful avatar now!!!

Last night around midnight mountain time tapatalk reported the forum was having issues.

Also isn't Peter in Wala Wala? I doubt this is his doing but you never know. I like my Bellinas but don't know who owns it! Lol

Hi everyone. We're trying to resolve the issue now. That pretty bellina is the default avatar for the customers group.

You can change it back by uploading your previous avatar using the User Control Panel. I just did this. Couldn't remember what I called my file, but I use the same avatar over on orchidboard.com. So if you have the same one there, you can either download it and upload it here or note down the file name, find it on your computer and upload that one using the User Control Panel (UCP) . Turns out I have my file in a folder called avatars. Imagine that...

If you would like to change the group you are assigned to click on Usergroups in the UCP, click on the Membership you want to use, then click on the Change default button on the lower left and then click on the Submit button on the lower right.

Thanks for your patience.

So are all old avatars gone? I made mine so long ago that I don't have the file anymore or the fullsize picture that it came from. Don't have the plant either anymore - killed it out of neglect long time ago. :(

Sorry all. I was testing group setting and that resulted in losing all custom avatar.
It's a bug in phpBB that group setting overwrite it. I maybe able to find old avatar if its uploaded to this forum. If its a link to external site then the file should not be affected.
I'm in Seattle now and don't have easy access to FTP to look into directly.

Sorry.

Can the database be rolled back "temporarily" to grab avatars if needed?

Rollback is possible if there is a current Database backup. The backup I made was weeks ago. I can lookup tables record to get the avatar setting. This way we don't lose out new posts

Jason isn't it time for you to get a new avatar ? I'm sure I have your file somewhere.

*lol* Ryan, I love your new avatar - I mean - not as beautiful as your wife and daughter - but I love these little figurines, like Wallace & Gromit ;)

I noticed the colour change in some of the usernames, but I haven't noticed anything else.

Edit: I now see that my avatar is gone. . . oh well, I've been wanting to change it anyways.
