Ahoy Mateys,

I enabled avatars on the message boards, because I was keen on having my lovely pirate face next to my messages. For reference, the final message board system used by YPP will allow you to post as your pirate and will, of course, display your pirate's face next to your post (with whatever fancy hat ye was wearin' at the time).

In the meanwhile, it's pretty easy to grab your own pirate face from a screenshot and upload it as an avatar to the message boards. I'll leave it to the more skilled of ye with Photoshop to offer to do the honors for other players.

Arrr excellent matey!

(tests his new avatar)

With a screen shot of my main char, it makes it easier for players to connect the playername with the username used on the boards.

It would be great if we could have an alias instead of the username. Frankly a username as a board name is not the most secure solutions if you know what I mean.

I can't see your avatar Jack. I can see mine however.

Now the wierd thing is, on my wifes computer she can't see mine but she can see Jacks. Even if she logs in as me and tries. Could it have to do with filetypes?

Actually, it's phpBB not being designed to run on a cluster of servers. We have three computers in the web server cluster and phpBB just uploads the image to whichever server the user happens to be talking to at the moment. I'll put together a script that mirrors the images to all the servers and then they should show up for everyone.

Rational thought returns slowly to my aching head, but I dare not peek above these barrels. I do not think they are aware of my presence, though how they missed my agonized screams of terror I cannot claim to know. All I can recall now are those horrible skeletal grins...I believe that if I ever get off this forsaken ship I may not sleep again. I can hear them work, and by the sound of it they are drinking rum, too. It splashes unimpeded through thier bodies--what possible sustenance could they gain? The deck is awash with rum and gore from thier previous victims and I am afraid now to move at all for fear of seeing the dismembered limbs of another pirate I once knew...I don't know any pirates anymore. I don't know anything. Why are they drinking rum? That doesn't make sense. What's that? I heard something splash overboard. It sounds like they're getting closer, now...I can hear them grumbling. They must have emptied a cask. Uh oh.

Again?

I nearly always have an open copy of The Dream Quest (blah blah blah) laying about somewhere. Ain't no better way to put myself to sleep than by reading Lovecraft!

Will everyone have to use the "head" avatars, or will it always be possible to have custom ones?

I for one, obviously, think a custom avatar makes ye more recognizable than just yer in-game head. Especially if there are other pirates out there with yer same head. That's a quite odd sounding thing to say.
