Yeah, it was cute, but it always took eons to load for me, and sometimes it wouldn't load at all... a bit irritating a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

*checks how much PeteRingo BestStarr avatar is* *starts crying paul-mccartney*

Anyway, I'd have to change it some day, I mean, PeteRingo BestStarr has stayed the same for over a year.

Hard cheese, Merch. I'm gonna miss Pengo Barr. But alas, like Pete Best, he must be replaced.

You could take a still from that picture or you can make a image of Pete over Ringo in a picture editing software.

Thanks for the heads up! Luckily, my avatars KB is small enough; only like 50.7 KB or something like that.

I have no idea what size my avatar is or if these changes will affect it. I presume it wont.

No worries, @Shamrock Womlbs. I'm sure you will pick a great new avatar. Maybe you could make one still picture of the apples on the umbrella???

It used to be a matter of right-click and check properties, but some modern browsers don't make it that easy. On Chrome/Mac I use an extension called View Image Info (properties). Alternatively you can just save your avatar to a hard drive and see the file size there. But as long as you haven't chosen a huge image or an animation I'm sure it'll be fine. MMM, yours is 3.5 KB, so tiny. Have an apple.

@Shamrock Womlbs, it's no problem. I was checking some stuff yesterday and ran a Pingdom speed test on my homepage to check the load times. It said my site was loading slower than 94% of all tested websites! The problem was that avatars also appear on the front page and sidebar of the website, so if you had a huge avatar here it was likely to appear elsewhere (depending on how often you post). Slow loading pages have a negative effect on my search engine ranking and will send people away, so I have to keep things shipshape.

You can see the test result here (the apples/umbrella gif is the long green line midway down): http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#.....sbible.com

Another PSA: I also removed the Facebook Like button from the homepage so people won't get tracked by them after visiting. I'd been reading about how Facebook can build a profile of a web user based not only on their FB interactions, but also through any website they visit that sports a Like button (whether or not they click on it). I didn't want to be complicit in that. There's still a FB icon in the header but it's just a link to my mostly-dormant page there.

Re: the avatars. I ckecked @parlance's and @LongHairedLady's profiles, and their avatars seem okay. Perhaps it's only on new files being uploaded. Or perhaps it wasn't Monday, it was later.

It's been changed. And all the users who had remote avatars get to keep them.

I've just rolled out an update to the forum software. Things may be broken, but hopefully not. Fingers crossed.

For those of you who may not have read the thread where this change was discussed, I'll bring the information here for you.

There's a change in the post count associated with some of the forum level ranks. The post counts to reach the first levels haven't changed. The changes are for the advanced levels (read that as the obsessed-with-the-Beatles-and-with-discussing-every-minute-detail-about-them-on-the-most-freakingly-awesome-forum-dedicated-to-them-on-the-internet levels).

Link to Joe's post on the new post counts: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....2/#p208505

Have the forum tabs been updated, they look far nicer than before.
