Blow me down, I've got that problem too. 

Also the little blue arrow that takes me to the top of the screen has gone. 

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

@Ahhh Girl @The Hole Got Fixed @Father McKenzie @SpecialCup 

The blue arrow and menu should be working again on mobile (tested on Android 8.1/chrome). Please @ me if it's still not right. Sorry for the problems.

Hey @Joe, I just noticed that the site won't let you upload an avatar unless it's exactly 100x100 pixels. (I tested it with a picture that was 101x101 a-hard-days-night-john-6 and it didn't work. a-hard-days-night-paul-3)

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I second this.

The maximum width is 100 pixels and 101 pixels is bigger.

Am I being stupid here?

Nah, I think it's  just me. It is harder to find something in those dimensions than it looks. (At least for me)

@meanmistermustard Correct. It won't let anything bigger than 100x100 upload, and 101x101 is bigger, so it wouldn't upload. In times past, you could upload pretty much any size photo and it would automatically crop it to a 1x1 aspect ratio and fit it to size.

@TheWalrusWasBrian, you can resize any image to 100x100 as long as it's 1x1 aspect ratio.

Oh, yeah, I noticed that too. Instead of back-of-George's-head, it's just a standard blank avatar.

Also, I just tried to upload my 100x100 avatar, and it said it exceeded the maximum file size. So too did it reject a 99x99 pix avatar. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

there is a limit on size in terms of mb. Maybe it fell over that.

@TheWalrusWasBrian, you can resize any image to 100x100 as long as it's 1x1 aspect ratio.  

I had to put some upload restrictions in place because someone had an absolutely huge animated avatar (27 mb), which was automatically scaled down to fit. Every time it appeared on the page the whole thing would load slowly.

The maximum size (dimensions) is indeed 100px.

For some reason the max file size had dropped down to 10240 bytes (10 kb). I've increased it to 100 kb – still quite low, but good for the forum's health. You can run your avatars though an image optimiser if you need to make them smaller (I use ImageOptim for OSX to compress almost all the images on this site; there are alternatives here).

AFAIK changing the file size limit doesn't affect previously-uploaded avatars, so that's why some older ones (including the default one) can be larger.

Though now things are scaling down I think. Zig's avatar is smaller than before.

Something weird is going on with at least two threads, @Joe.

@Shamrock Womlbs commented in the Miscellaneous John Videos thread that a post he'd just made had somehow appeared on the first page of the thread. Looking at it, in terms of date rather than post number, the thread now begins on 12 October 2017, has six posts running up to SW's post today, then goes to the original first post made on 1 April 2014, goes through to 5 March 2016, and then SW's second post in the thread today.

While the last nine pages of the Beatles News thread are now the first nine. Your opening post from 20 October 2011 now follows the post I made this morning on page nine, with the first page beginning on 2 June 2017 while the last page is ending on 25 May 2017:

EDIT: It also seems to have happened with this thread, with all posts after 29 May 2017 shifted to the beginning of this thread (bar this one, fingers crossed).

Damn, thanks @Ron Nasty. I had restored the threading plugin to allow nested comments, but it seems to have borked the order of posts. I've removed it for now and things seem back to normal. I'll test it again when I have a chance.

OK, that date is significant, because it's precisely when I first tested the threading plugin. There might be a way to reset it so it doesn't ruin the order of everything, but I don't have time to test it right now.
