Anyone with a RED X is marked for death. But that's just my theory.

The admins are busy scrambling the avatars. When all is done it will up to you to find who has yours, and try to reclaim it. For a small fee of course.

Thanks to my time machine, I put next Saturday's winning lottery numbers in my avatar. I will be changing it soon just so I don't have to split it more than 20 or so ways.

Although this post is from 2009, it's happening to me starting this morning. I found the post through a search trying to figure out what was wrong. I can't see any avatars and the images of the buttons are missing. I must have changed something but haven't been able to figure it out, help?

You can start by doing this:

(1) click on "User CP" on the horizontal bar above.

(2) click on "Edit Options" on the left hand side

(3) Scroll about half way down to the "Thread Display Options" section.

(4) There, the "show avatars" and "show images" boxes should be checked. If they are not, then click on the boxes so that they have a check mark in them.

(5) Scroll way down to the bottom and click on the "Save Changes" button.

You may not have done anything wrong. Instead this might be a slow connection somewhere between our server and your screen. Images are the last thing to load (we do this to keep the site as fast as possible) and sometimes they hang if there's lots of traffic.
