I was on this page…

http://lumberjocks.com/MsDebbieP

And on the buddies list on the left you’ll see that “John McCormick” has no icon.

This isn’t an isolated case – same problem here, and almost certainly elsewhere.

FireFox and Safari on OSX (although if you look at the html you’ll see that it’s a problem in the code)

Just a little thing that needs fixing.

I read your post on that thread moment, but I didn’t really see a question.

There are 3 question marks in your post…
”Are you people in Austin THAT ethnocentric about Asians ?!”
”Who’s next ? This guy ?”

All rhetorical.

This is a separate issue.
People without icons are supposed to have “Generic icons” – you can see them on “Silkrap” and “SignWave” on the screenshot above.

LumberJocks.com is delivering html with a link to a picture that doesn’t exist.
In this case… src=”/images/.png”

That’s a bug.

Thank you KnickKnack. I am writing a ticket for the IT guys to see what happened there.

Clearly it is a glitch.

BTW I don’t live in Austin. ;)

what i am saying is that some of my buddy’s icon were defaulted to the generic icon . Not a bug . They didn’t
default their icons . Someone is defaulting the icons of my legitimate buddies . type in mathlete . he is not spam
just inactive . do you think mathlete is a legitimate member? and that is not a freaking rhetorical question .

~ that was tounge in cheek KnackKnick . that was meant to be humorous ,
If you can’t relate to verbal irony or parody , then i will not ask you another question . You take this site functionality
crap too seriously , as many do. Im all about the funny . I dont give a crap what gets deleted revised retro-fitted customized .defaulted or spammetizeded . Not my job . I have the luxury of not having to worry about that . But some of you fukers crack me up !!!!!!!! Its all good . Houston? ; )

as Rick would say…..” I’m un watching this post “

moment said: what i am saying is that some of my buddy’s icon were defaulted to the generic icon

Perhaps so.
And, if so, that’s certainly an issue, which you raised in the “Purge” thread, and hopefully someone is dealing with it.

This is different issue.
This issue may well be related to the other issue, it may not, I have no way of knowing.
All I do know is that there’s a buglette somewhere, and in the screen shot I showed a manifestation of said issue.
As a lumbercitizen I felt I should draw the attention of management to it, and here, in “site feedback”, I am doing so.

moment said: type in mathlete . he is not spam just inactive . do you think mathlete is a legitimate member?

I don’t know quite what “legitimate” means – is DaveMu legitimate?
I certainly see no evidence that he’s a spammer of any kind – just the strong, silent, type :-)
He’s made one comment, which, incidentally, doesn’t show an icon either!

I don’t live in Austin either (perhaps we need to start a subgroup of people who don’t live in Austin?) – although, spookily, my brother did live there for a number of years a number of years ago, and he’s a big time mathematician.

I see no way of detecting that there was “verbal irony”, or “parody” in that request.
I’ll try harder moment, when I see your posts, to see your tongue in your cheek.
Feel free to ask me any questions you like. But please accept that I might mistake irony and parody for seriousness, and forgive me when I do.

moment said: You take this site functionality crap too seriously , as many do.
(btw – nice to see the double “o” in there)

Perhaps we simply draw the line around “too” in a different place.
You obviously thought it worth mentioning that some of the icons of your buddies have been deleted – had this happened to my buddies I’d have thought it worth mentioning too (although, of course, I have no buddies)
I thought it worth mentioning this bug.

moment said: I dont give a crap what gets deleted revised retro-fitted customized .defaulted or spammetizeded

Well, I do – ”the only thing necessary for evil to flourish is that good men do nothing”

Just to update you – this problem is also evident on the main forum listing page, where it looks kind of bad…

FireFox:

Safari:

I have already sent a ticket to the IT guys for this. Hopefully they will get to it soon.

I know.
I wasn’t hassling, just drawing your attention to a different (and more important) page which has the same problem.

Hopefully this is working correctly on your profile pages now.
