Some member icons are missing on posts

Posted 27 May 2017 - 10:56 AM

Some of the icons that show up on people's posts below their avatars are missing and the alternate text ("member icon") is displayed instead. Some examples of ones that are missing are those for the mentor and moderator groups. The URLs to the images are broken. For the two cases I mentioned, the URLs are http://www.dreaminco...entor_group.gif and http://www.dreaminco...rator_group.gif - both have extra path segments that shouldn't be there ("forums/dreamincode.net").

Obviously I don't know what's caused this to break recently, or why for these specific groups (and any others that are affected). The URLs for experts and forum leaders, for example, are correct, so those images are being displayed.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Yeah I noticed that too. I assume someone will fix it shortly since it is obvious enough to see. :)

Is it just me, or is there a disturbing pattern here of the site seeming to be falling apart?
First images in the posts break and we have to link to off-site/3rd party imaging hosting: Something that had previously been frowned upon because it leaves the site vulnerable to those images being taken down.
Then the email template gets broken and links to posts no longer are right.
Now this.

Its like being in a what was once a really good neighborhood, only to see it slowing becoming an area you really don't want to venture into anymore.

You can't upload profile pics either.

I hadn't noticed the other problems (though possibly that's because I went away for a while). I suppose I only noticed this one as I thought I'd been demoted :ohno:.

Maybe a site revamp/redo is in order. :(

I came to report this too.

Are you volunteering? I read in one of the other threads that mentioned the disturbing number of problems, that there is only one person working on the site.

There has been a revamp in the queue for years. We even started beta testing a new site version but it apparently has stalled and didn't go anywhere yet. Sounds like Chris is having a bit of troubles handling all the data requirements and such.

But for the most part the site is falling apart. The software itself is years and years old. I am actually surprised it still half way runs.
