    All of sudden I can't see Avatars in MacRumors, just a ? mark. What is going on?

    There is an issue with avatars and while many members are not seeing any issues, others such as myself seem to be affected.

    The admin staff is aware of the issue and hopefully they'll have it resolved shortly.

    Thanks for letting me know it's not me. Good Luck to the admin staff.

    Noticed this as well--and also confirmed it was a server error by opening the avatar pic in a new tab--which generated an internal server error.

    I was wondering what the issue was as well; I'm glad it's not just me. Is a resolution expected soon?

    It appears that the problem is present those of us in the New England area. A friend in Michigan is not experiencing the problem at all. I know that maflynn is a neighbor near Boston, and I'm just South of Boston, and at least one other I know of is in this area and experiencing the problem.

    I don't know if MR can do anything, or if it a problem of our local graphic server (or whatever you call it!)

    As of this writing...the problem continues...:(

    EDIT: Sorry, I just noticed that it is not restricted to my area...but seems to be elsewhere, too.

    I can confirm that I'm having problems seeing avatars here in Oslo, Norway.

    Yeah, when I first noticed it, I thought first world problem. :p But since it might mean a problem somewhere, it's worth figuring out.

    Of course but a mod already said admins were working on it so I didn't think I needed to repeat it.
