I thought I’d better start a thread about the mysterious disappearing of avatars and profile pages and apologise for any annoyance caused!
It’s something a few of you have reported to us in the past week or so. As it first starting happening a few days before Christmas, the developers didn’t have chance to look at it before the break, but they will be looking into now as one of the first things on their to do list for 2015. Hopefully normal service should be resumed soon.
In the meantime, I know some of you have been able to get your avatars and profile pages back by re-uploading images and re-entering your details into your profile page. This does seem to do the trick, however, once you have logged out and then back in again everything disappears. So I think it’s fair to say, I wouldn’t spend too much time doing this in case of more annoyance!
