    Terribly sorry about this, but I've just moved the site to a different server, but it's broken the site avatars.

    Turns out the server software we were running before was very out of date. That on top of the fact that the forum software hasn't seen a proper update for a few years means that moving to a server with update to date software - means some forum functions are no longer supported.

    So far all I've seen is broken avatars, which relates to a major plugin we use that no longer sees development. However, any other bugs or issues, please do report them here.

    This might be minor, but I was wondering if the new software can support "mobile" avatars (I don't really mind if the :kitty: and the moth in my avatar are still, but it seems to lose je ne sais quoi.)

    Do animated avatars have to be a certain size?

    I'm not sure at present! I'll have a check - but for the time being, probably safer to keep with existing avatars. Am still getting used to the new system. :)

    If you recall from before the transition, the moth was flying around and the :kitty: was trying to catch it (I think 17th Angel posted something based off of it a while ago, but I can't remember. :oops:)
