While I was hoping we'd get posts from people with faulty profile pictures, I'm happy to help. What kind of profile picture would you like? A classy b&w image? A picture of your favourite comedian? Perhaps an epic meme?

I was thinking maybe a black and white picture of Ernest Borgnine, or maybe a  detail from one of Salavador Dali's later works. Failing that , how about a nice picture of Lonesome George (RIP), the world's oldest tortoise?








Oh alright, Jodie Comer.

I don't think those people are aware that their avatars are dead links.  It's likely that their avatar image is stored in their browser's cache, so they can see it but nobody else can.

Jobotic and jockice are different people. I did wonder why he lived in Sheffield, but had to start a thread on Sheffield because he was spending a day visiting. I thought he might be really parochial about staying in Rotherham or something.

It appears to have been replaced by an unfathomably, indescribably grotesque man. In fact, even though I can only see less than 40% of his face, I can honestly say I've never seen anyone so hideous. I hate to think what the rest of his face or even other parts of his body ...

Nah, it's the people with avatars that have something to hide. Like beards, or slogan shirts. Classic distraction technique. You have no idea of the wonton atrocities I'm committing when you read my posts because there's a picture of cartoon cats right there.

I appreciate the effort that has been put into it, and that,  but as I've mentioned previously in another thread, the whole thing is just a little too " busy ", and would look even more chaotic in shrunken form, on people's phones, and so on  really difficult to wank to, and all. If this image incorporated , say  for example,  just Ms. Comer and Mr. George ( RIP ) then I dare say I would gladly have adopted it as mine avatar.

That’s fucking amazing.

I have a “brand” now such that when people read a quality Ferris post, they expect Joe Carter hitting a dinger (subtly colour-matched to the CaB page colour so it just looks right).

But if I wasn’t bound by the need to keep giving the Ferris-heads what they crave, I’d be on that in a flash.

That first avatar really is very good, I shouldn't have suggested Ernest Borgnine in the first fucking place for the black and white image, ' cos I find it a bit distracting as part of the whole composition, I didn't know some fucker would actually go to the trouble of making such a fucking thing, did I ?

Jodie Comer. And yes, you did a good job Doc, and I'm grateful to you, too.

you could have put up that picture of her showing her norks off in that red dress though.

Thank you for your efforts. But yes, so far none of the main broken-link-avatar offenders have shown up. Perhaps they genuinely don’t know.

I fess up to being one of those 'broken-link-avatar offenders' but despite repeated attempts I've failed dismally to resolve it. I have a lovely picture as well.

You've forgotten the colon after the "http".

It looks like it is trying to become a fox but can’t manage.  Maybe try at least inserting it into the Simpsons canon to explain its unaging state?

Your avatar is grand.  Nothing needs fixing.  'Tis a fine doggo.  A fine doggo indeed.

What are you suggesting, that someone else made it topnav_bg.gif?

When I copy you image link, I get http://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/Themes/Vertex-Theme2-0/css/topnav_bg.gif which is obviously something on the forum. Didn't your profile picture used to be a sketch of some kind? Anyway, you've only got a blue question mark at the moment.

I've never had an avatar. I sometimes help others with theirs though. Aren't I nice.

I used that image from the board themes because (at the time) it resolved but didn't display, preventing that fucking baby avatar from appearing. (Something I suppose has disappeared now anyway.)

I guess since the board reboot, that topnav_bg file is no longer there - I never noticed because I don't get a missing image icon, but it sounds like you do.

Just turned it off now.

Only just read this, sorry. Mine was a tufted duck. Not very exciting unless you can't get enough of tufted ducks, like me. I haven't seen it for a long time.

By the way can anyone recommend me anywhere or anything about my home town of Sheffield? I have a girlfriend.

So you need a profile picture of Sheffield? Is that what you're asking for?

That's because along with the rest of those who adopted the punk lifestyle, the tufted ducks died out in the 90s.
