R.I.P. Reading Rooms and Avatar Issues

Hey folks, Aunt Lynn here. We made a change today that may have inadvertently effected visitors to the site. We decided, based on a year’s worth of information, to eliminate the Reading Rooms, a section of the site that so few of you went to that the only activity on most of the pages was spam. We tried it, it didn’t take, no big whoop to cut that out (and give Wave more room for hot nekked menz on the right nav πŸ™‚ ).

BUT, when Christian administered the last rites and pulled the plug, we didn’t realize it would effect another aspect of the site: the avatars.

Since it seems they were tied together, most of us lost our little pics as part of our profile. If you’re one of the many (me included!) that this happened to, then hop on over to Gravatar.com and upload a new one. I know this is a pain and kinda stupid, but even if you re-upload your already uploaded image again for the email addy you use here, it will work.Β  Sincerest apologies, folks. If you have a question about this, leave a note in the comments and I’ll respond asap.

I thought the reading rooms were a good idea but felt like spoiler alerts were needed when discussing a book others hadn’t read yet.

Testing, testing … Just checking to see if my avatar shows up. I’m having problems getting into Gravatar at the moment.

If I remember correctly, the Reading Rooms didn’t always work, which is why maybe they weren’t used more. Or am I confusing that with something else? πŸ˜•

ETA: Looks like my avatar still works, without me having to do anything. πŸ™‚

Majken

No more little green smiley face? Oh well, sad but something I can live with πŸ™‚
