Picture / Signature Deleted! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Over the weekend it would appear that someone has deleted my forums signature as well as my avatar.  Should I put these back, or is a migration under way and will return in due time?

    This new forum platform is very frusturating.  There have been more problems than improvements.

  • I clicked "Mark Appropriate" on your avatar, let me know if it still doesn't solve the problem.  The way they implemented this makes zero sense to me.  As usual.

  • Somebody has clicked on the "inappropriate" link on your avatar.  Any possible reason for this?  There's no way for a moderator to see who might have clicked the link or what the avatar looked like.  Yes, more problems.

  • Thanks for your reply.

    My profile was a silhouette Chuck Norris!  What could be more wholesome?!  It also deleted my signature.  How do I fix all of this?  I've got a lot of time dedicated to this account and I'd hate to get it all messed up!

  • ... and someone can mark a profile as inappropriate and action is taken without someone actually LOOKING first?

  • It looks like the deletion hasnt yet replicated or whatever to every post.  take a look here at a previous post and you can see for yourself there is nothing inappropriate!

  • What I learned today: mark inappropriate wipes the avatar, signature, and "About me" in the profile. I believe it also locks those fields down. I beleive all "mark appropriate" does is allow those fields to be edited again.

    As implemented today, signature is actually appended to each post, so if you change your sig, it's not reflected on your previous posts...

  • Thanks for your help!  I can now edit my website, signature and picture!!

    Just to be clear, you said someone can mark a picture, or entire profile as inappropriate and the content is deleted automatically?  This seems more than annoying, but really negligent implementation.  Who's to say mr. hacker doesn't build an app to mark everyone's profiles as inappropriate?

  • Only users who are Moderatorators or above (Admin) can perform the Mark Appropriate/InAppropriate functionality.

  • Ok, that makes a bit more sense.  Too bad you dont audit this.  My profile obviously had/has nothing inappropriate in it.

    How does one become a moderator?  I'm on these forums almost every day (hence my uproar when I thought my profile was gone) and would like to become more involved.
