    You can now post new photos in the forums again.

    Unfortunately, due to tech issues, we had to zap all old photos, but that problem has been resolved. TX

    Am I the only one who can’t see the profile pictures anymore? I see about half, but this is new as of yesterday night. Just wondering if uploading an avatar photo will fix the problem, or if it’s just my browser.

    Oh, nooo — SORRY about this! Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do to fix this now.

    Behind the scenes here at Gold Derby, we’re trying to resolve potential legal issues with copyrights of photos. Throughtout these forums, for example, we had thousands of photos of potential copyright infringement. We decided to resolve the issue by killing all photos posted before May 2015 and then permitting new photos to be posted. Our editors would then monitor new pix to make sure there are no new problems. When we eliminated the old photos, we didn’t realize that many profile photos were also part of that database on our server.

    Please accept our apology. We’re trying to accommodate your use of photos here in these forums. Many message boards across the web — like IMDB — do not permit photos at all. We’re doing our best to strike a balance.

    That’s fine, I don’t mind reuploading! Not sure if my profile pic infringes on copyright, given it’s a screenshot from a film. It’s back up now, so it’s fine, and I appreciate the ability to use photos, it is a great tool!

    That’s sucks, but it’s understandable. For future references, when a pic is uploaded into a forum, should we put some kind of disclaimer? I know this sounds farfetched, but better to be safe than sorry.

    When I try to upload a new profile pic,  the upload works OK but when I click ‘Save’ it says “The Profile photo could not saved”  (sic)

    Tried different sizes, different file formats.

    Well, this may explain why all of the pictures here have a big X over them. My new computer guy says it’s “the strangest thing I’ve seen in a while”. Uh-huh. I’ve heard that repeatedly for many years.

    Happened to me as well and I got it fixed via the GD tech team (well, not sorta, it just links to my FB profile pic now). 

    I’ve contacted them to see if there are instructions I can post to help you out here.

    Have photos been zapped again? Are we not allowed to use them anymore?

    Sigh. 

    Thanks for trying to solve this. I miss the pictures. The image evokes so much.

    Give us another 2 to 3 weeks and you’re going to start noticing some HUGE change around here. Very exciting stuff. Among other things, we’re going to unveil new layouts and we’ll begin the transfer to mobile-friendly site coding. Hopefully, we’ll be able to add photos back to the forums. Stay tuned.

    So should we not be posting profile photos that we get online? In fact, is there a way somebody could help me delete my current profile pic? I had uploaded it before i saw this thread… and now I’m kinda worried and would like to just have the generic siloutte instead… is there a way to get this done? I can only see an option to upload a new one, not to delete my picture all together… please help!
