Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Apr 28, 2011, 03:41 PM

Avatar Images and Signatures are now available on DU3.

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

To set up your avatar and signature, click the "My Profile" link at the top of any page. Look for the sub-heads entitled "Avatar image" and "Signature line".

Members may select from more than 1000 avatar images provided by DU. Currently you are not able to upload your own avatar images, however we do plan to program that functionality before the official launch of DU3.

2. Here's a strange glitch I just noticed, though.

When I reply to you, my avatar appears where yours should be, in the post I'm replying to. I was thinking in my first post, "How interesting, Skinner and I chose the same avatar!" (I just never saw you as identifying that closely with Maxfield Parish.) But looking at my response in the thread, I see you have the "I voted" avatar. Strange.

6. Thank you for the reply. Looking forward to this feature.

Also, would like to see the avatar gallery contain user contributions. Feel free to use this Tupac Amaru II image.

7. I'm glad we'll be able to custom avatarize.

I wouldn't feel like myself without Alice.

8. Why can't the avatars that we already have just be migrated?

I created mine in Photoshop.

13. A concern of mine too.

I've had a "Solidarnosc" graphic in my signature line for almost a year now, and I miss it.

I wasn't the least bit pleased to lose my custom avatar either. Glad to see we'll be getting those back at least.

Hope we get the spell checker back too.

17. When I try to download both Avatar and Signature line I get this notice:

The requested URL /no-javascript-version.shtml was not found on this server.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apache/1.3.34 Server at www.democraticunderground.com Port 80

My resident computer guru did some checkin' and believes it to be a DU issue rather than with my server. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this same problem and if so, any clues how to do a fix. I'm anxious to see those 1000 avatars!

Loving DU3, BTW.

18. The links to edit your avatar and signature require Javascript to work.

That error page appears when you click on those links and your browser's Javascript is disabled (or not working for some reason).

Make sure your Javascript is on and try it again. Or try another browser to see if the one you're using is having issues.


ETA: Those links work by clicking on them - they open up more information within the same page. If you try to use the link to open a new tab/window then that error message appears.
