I tried to upload my avatar again, but this popped up:
Quote from:  error message
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Looks like chmod a+rw avatar may be needed.
I don't think there's anything wrong with your avatar.
I'm running firefox and haven't noticed any problems with any avatars.

How do you fight a bully that can un-make history?

I end up seeing this: (or not. Apparently I can't upload/attatch photos.)

Edit: As you can see, some work, some don't. Most don't. Ocicat, Thaur, Chodon, Familyguy, Oddpod and Jim are the only ones I see that work.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.

I'm on a different computer altogether now, and it's still the same... so, instead of worrying about it, I shall try to post a) belated dog photo, and b) adorable kid costumes.

I emailed Steve about it earlier. It does just seem like someone forgot to just change the permissions on a couple folders, so it should be an easy fix.

Sorry for the confusion, folks.  What had been going on was that the MySQL server was poorly configured (my fault) and kept crashing out, and I kept ignoring the problem.

Today I spent half a day reinstalling Debian and the Web sites, largely from scratch, and working to get things right this time without screwing around with anything experimental.  So it should be more stable.  But if anyone's still having problems with avatars, please let me know.

Yes, I've been a slacker on the forums.  I've been a slacker on a lot of things lately.  This past week it's severely damaged a lot of things in my life.  I'm working to fix it now, one thing at a time. 

If you're having forum issues, or any other concerns, please PM me.  It'll get a response.  Thanks in advance.

Thanks!!  I get tired just thinking about all you're doing to bring us EP.

I'm such a suck-up.   ;D

When will all the rhetorical questions end?

Please, PLEASE tell me getting the avatars working was at the bottom of your list of priorities. Severe Life Damage isn't something to muck around with...

Hope this week goes better.

It wasn't at the top of the priority list, but it was a lot faster to fix than some of the other things.  >8->

Thanks, everyone.  I'll have more to say on the subject very soon.  Tonight, though, I'm focusing on getting Escape Pod up on time for a change.
