What is with the empty pictures


#1

I have been noticing a trend lately that new users seem to have no picture making them impossible to tap without either searching their username up or clicking their username, what is with that?


#2

Probably your device is “defective”.
The pictures are PNG, that allows them to have transparent parts, even all of the picture.
I can still click on them tho.

Then I guess mine is too? I’ve been having the same problem on many different Discourse forums.

i am using a windows 10 computer currently, as i am hard in work on making a new welcome message update for land of paradise

Apparently Discourse is not loading its system generated avatars. Normally it loads the initial character of the user-name, on a coloured background, and this is not presently working.

There is now a fix for this, would be kind of nice to have them back :slight_smile:

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

Thanks! I’ve passed this on to Dave, so he can sort it at some point :slight_smile:
