What phone and browser are you using? 

 

I was using my default browser on my samsung galaxy, but I've just changed it to Chrome and thankfully the problem is resolved.

Hey Jason, any idea why avatar images are coming out at low resolution again? Yours is, for eg.

There's nothing wrong with avatars, other than the fact that you don't have one.  In my case, it was just a crappy resolution picture to start with

Why would you choose a shitty image? I wouldn't. My last two avatars have had their resolution significantly reduced after adding them.

The board doesn't lower resolution after selecting them.  I have no idea what you're talking about.

I certainly didn't notice that his avatar had a low resolution.

When you upload a new avatar image, you get to choose which square section of it to be your avatar.  It saves a 240x240 version of that square as your avatar, and displays that image as a 150x150 square under your screen name.  It doesn't downgrade anything.


What Quint could be thinking of is when Andreas changed us from IPBoard 3 to IPBoard 4, the board resampled everyone's existing avatars and a bunch ending up looking like crap, but if you go out and pick a new avatar it doesn't do anything to it.

If I upload an image to use as an avatar right now, is it normal for it to have its quality reduced once it appears on the site, under my screen name? (or beside it, in mobile view)

 

Steef's is low resolution, as is yours. Is this to be expected? 

 

I only ask because I remember avatar images here were generally of very good quality up until recently, but the one I uploaded earlier this evening was visibly inferior to the original copy.

Hmm, this is making me wonder if mobile Chrome browser is the issue. If it is though, it's attributable to this site - because I have the image in question in an another tab (uploaded to Imgur) and it is displaying in good quality as I would expect it to. It's only when the image is added to this site that its quality becomes significantly reduced. 

 

Hence this conversation...

Stefan's avatar is certainly not low resolution.  I have no idea what you're talking about.

Interesting how everything always ends up being the fault of this website rather than anything else, Lee.

@Quint Maybe you should put this image you're talking about in place as your avatar, and we can tell you if it looks weird on our setups?

Stop being a prick hovering around commenting in every damn thread with an ounce of action, I'm just trying to figure out the issue I'm having. You're like like a fucking wasp sometimes.

I have been noticing scrolling issues on mobile lately, it seems to be connected with embeds. (Youtube, Twitter etc.)

Nevermind, I should have just read last page, and followed leeallen's solution.

Is it me or is this happening more and more now?

It's happened to me once or twice in the past month, but simply refreshing the site restores it. Maybe I'm not accessing the site as often as you and I don't see the outages as frequently.

Thanks for your continued support, Andreas. 

 

It's a pity the new update still doesn't allow the simple deletion of quotes (on Android) without first entering into source mode. I fucking hate source mode. I mean, wtf?

Or if you quote something and want to type new text above the quote, you need to enter source mode to plant the cursor. Below the text is easier as long as you don't erase the line of text it gives you, otherwise it's erase and start over.

Yes! 

 

If you're ever in bed late one night, don't dare reply on here one more time just before you hit the power button on your phone and go to sleep. Because if you fuck that shit up and need to make a quick corrective edit, say to remove an accidental quote, you're screwed. Because that means entering into source mode, and having your fucking wits about you, yo. Before you know it you're wide a motherfucking wake again.
