Yeah, that's pretty ugly, all right... Besides I can't read the lettering. Hope this gets resolved and nothing happens to mine!

What I don't get is how this happened. I did not purchase a background image.

I recently changed my avatar, but nothing else in my profile.



I even tried clearing my cache, I thought it was something strange on my end.

If you go in like you're going to change your background image, what's there? Is it still set for none? Or is there a code in there?

I can't do that, I don't have points to even select that option.

Well, I guess if you could read the lettering, the background wouldn't be so bad actually. It's certainly unique. However, the fact that you cannot read the lettering outweighs any of the positive attributes of the background.

Ha Ha Ha!

I didn't put it there, I just appeared suddenly, when I refreshed while browsing.



I guess I'll just have to wait for someone to fix it for me.

I don't want to even post, because I'll get in trouble for the way my profile text looks, even though I had nothing to do with the way it looks.

Really, Mechanic, the background is not that bad.. It's interesting really. However, because you can't read the text, it kind of puts a damper on it. I know you didn't intend for it to come out that way, but I think it has an intriguing look to it. All jokes aside. Have you tried changing your lettering to maybe black?

Well, I don't know. I guess wait for a moderator to come along and help you... I wish there was something else that I could suggest, but I really don't know of anything else that you could do.

That line there gets me thinking...

Lately I have been noticing members using the avatars off of my avatar thread, without asking to use them.

I have deleted many avatars that I had in that thread form both my Photobucket account as well as some that I had in my upload space. As well as having Umbrax close that thread as I will no longer be maintaining it, seeing how there have been numerous members going there to just take without asking.

I will have to check the urls for all the missing images in that thread to see if I have any image named aaa.jpg. I am thinking there might just be a missing image named aaa.jpg from my upload space that is no longer there. But possibly during page loading the server is still searching for it???


This will take a while to search the urls, as there are many missing images.
