    Is anyone else not seeing everyone's avatars? I've cleared cache, etc but there are still some that don't come up?

    I'm not having an avatar issue, Bill, but pics don't always load from Amin's forums. I often just see a rectangle with the file name on SC, mu-43, and fujixspot. It sometimes takes several reloads to get them to show.

    I have the same thing and compared to your screenshots it the same ones.

    Are those missing, or do those members not have avatars uploaded?

    Is that something recent, or has it been that way for you for a long time? If the former, try turning off lazy loading to see if that helps: https://www.seriouscompacts.com/account/preferences

    I think they don't have an avatar loaded. But I also don't remember a blank space. Was there formerly a generic default avatar?

    It's been going on quite a while, Amin. I just made the suggested change. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I'm not seeing any blank spaces in Bill's screenshot. Those are the default avatars.

    Hmm. Perhaps it's just coincidence that a number of people with no avatars are showing on the home screen at the same time. The reason I asked is because my broadband "provider", BT, sometimes throws a wobbly and pictures don't show, but that usually effects a number (but not all of) sites and shouldn't be the same on mobile.

    Nope - it's showing up here the same way as yours Bill, and I'm behind what must be one of the most restrictive content proxies outside of Government systems.
