Unable to view pictures hosted on BG
« on: November 03, 2010, 10:41:52 AM »
I seem to be unable to see pictures hosted on BG. Red crosses galore. Some experimenting gave the following results:

Loging in didn't help
Turning off AV and Firewall did not help
Adding BG to local intranet didn't help.

See the min/max boards for the start of the discussion.

I did notice one picture I can view, which is the BG logo. Checked the code and found this difference:

BG logo:

My browser seems to be having difficulties rendering that code. Using IE8 ATM. Any suggestions?

Yeah, switch browsers. :P Internet Explorer is one of the worst browsers you could be using. Firefox or Chrome are much better. (If you've heard this spiel a lot, my apologies.)

I actually had something vaguely similar happen recently--certain avatars, like TML's, wouldn't show up properly. It didn't seem to last too long, though--could have been temporary problems.

Weird thing is, pictures are working just fine on an other laptop, also in IE8.

And yes, I know FF is better. The laptop that has trouble is my wife's. I don't think she appreciates FF appearing very much ;)

I once installed Firefox on my dad's PC and switched the IE button on the Quick Launch bar with a Firefox one. He didn't notice.

The tier system in a nutshell:

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

I can sometimes not see them, but usually I find t hat if I just come back a while later they show up.  I also can't upload anymore.

I get a big red X when using IE8, and the following message if I try to link directly:  An Error Has Occurred!  It seems that you are not allowed to download or view attachments on this board. 

Nothing at all shows up with Firefox.

Is it an old post?  About two years ago, something happened during an upgrade that messed up all the previously hosted files.  Ones after that seemed fine.

Only certain avatars aren't showing up for me: TML, Sunic, Shadeseraph and a few others. The majority is fine.

And I'm using Firefox. Any ideas?

If you're from somewhere other than the states, it might be due to the picture hosting site.  I know that image shack recently made it so you had to register your site with them or pics hosted there wouldn't show up, but only for countries other than the US or the UK.  A couple other sites do the same, which is quite annoying to say the least.

I have a 5 in Charisma and Diplomacy is a cross-class skill.  Hopefully I don't piss off too many people.

Request Meg intervention on this:
Imageshack requires domain registration for their pics to display and quite a lot of us are using it. So if it's not too much trouble...

"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"
