Rejecting https:// for avatars

Hi, Doug--

Is there some reason you aren't accepting https:// based images for avatars? With Photobucket getting fussy, seems like it would be helpful to allow https images from some alternative sites who only serve images that way.


YUP...!!! I'll second that request as well.... Can you PLEASE help out with this issue Doug.... please? to camp and fish.... dream to be there....

Your request is noted. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

I'm uncertain how long it'll take me to be able to have a look at this, as obviously the underlying software wasn't setup to allow that. Hindsight is 20/20.

As I have it firsthand that this forum platform will no longer be updated (at least not by the current developer who has moved on - and will unlikely be picked up by anyone else), it's tough to spend time "fixing" things that will need to be left behind, as a software change and data migration would be necessary at some point in the not-too-distant future in order to move forward. I continue to evaluate options (and vision).
