The reason why is because ES doesn't use endpoint security, and because of that, the image fails to load. Yes, in theory, someone could intercept anything going in/out of ES. This is normal, however. ES doesn't hold any non-voluntary information about you, so there's no need to https.

it DID work, thank you so much! yay :) now i can get this show on da road

Take out the "s" from "https" and see if that works. Images don't work with https in the url for some reason.

i'm having trouble uploading images to my character profiles.

im back on this site after about a year and a half long hiatus so maybe i just forgot how it works. i pasted the link ( into the picture URL spot, but it keeps showing that little icon that lets you know that the site wasnt able to display the image.

Can you help ?

Send him more emails? Won't he get annoyed by the constant emails. I mean I will if it helps tbh
  Sina / 175d 21h 30m 47s
Shoot him more Emails at different times, and see if that does the trick.

Um hi! I emailed jimmyruska about my original account which I can't seem to log in anymore, and im sure i remember my password. I even did the email thing on the profile but have no way of resetting it since I can't seem to find anyway I can use my email. I'm just notifying and if my problem can be solved quicker here that would be great :)

Alright, i'm using the instructions for the editing. I followed the directions and the images are still not showing up. Any suggestions?

That is an issue that occurs rather often with new users. Same happened for me at least for a while...but it eventually started working after I had been on this site long enough and some PMs were cycling through.
  Lola Liz / AskTheStaff / 262d 5h 18m 51s
Hi, I am not able to click the PMs / Sent PMs links. When I do the site crashes. I even sent a PM to myself to see if when I clicked it, it would take me to my private messages. It only crashed again.

The guidelines of the Community Help Thread here have changed, to lax the notion of chatting in the upper part.

I agree, blocking should only been used when necessary. What if the number of complete blocks are restricted to a reasonable number so people think twice before abusing it?? The current partial block system can remain & people could only use the new one if they truly need it.

[size7 [sub I only have one person blocked and would only have one person blocked too. If someone needed to block a whole rp of people, I'd think they should look in the mirror first...]]

Also, in case anyone's wondering:

It's difficult, on a programming aspect, to try to filter for that; beyond concealing posts/chat, it's hard for a multi-person RP to carry on, when the members of the RP have each other blocked, and trying to implement a "user on blocklist has already joined so you can't" lock would prove restrictive in the worse fashions .

That being said, there are possibilities open; maybe the change in dynamic is perceived to be worse than it actually is. Perhaps there was a paradigm shift in an awkward direction. Perhaps a lesson in intellectual integrity can be showed. Waving something off as just "we don't really mesh" isn't [i quite] worthy of a block; heck, there's a buttload of people on ES I don't mesh with properly.

My block function will be limited to users who I KNOW will end up raising an argument with me that has no purpose, goal, motive, or message, or will otherwise go out of their way to give everyone a hard time simply because I'm present.

In short, block with moderation and prudence, not "just because you disagree".

[size7 [sub There's only one person that I would block, but since I rarely RP here, and since I run the help sections, I'd rather not block, and at least extend a hand of "here, lemme help." I might be weird for that, though.]]
