    Peace and Blessings Sister,

    I don't know of any former Premium Member ... whose avatar was removed because their subscription expired.

    Would you mind telling us which ones those are?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Thank You Sister.

    I'm not aware of that. No one has ever told us this before, and we certainly don't go in and delete avatars.

    I wish you would have said something about your deleted avatar when it happened, so we could have effectively addressed it.

    I'm baffled ... no one has ever mentioned this before.

    Members have informed us that personalized profile page settings are set back to the default upon Premium Membership expiration ... but that happens to everyone.

    Not to get off topic ... let me look specifically into Brother SkuderJaymes' issue you've tabled, since it's current.

    I would like to ask Brother SkuderJaymes though ... did this happen ... was your avatar deleted ... and you didn't do it?

    If any other Member has experienced this, please post in this thread and let us know.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention Sister ... after Brother SkuderJaymes confirms the above ... i'll look into it.

    If there are more people you'd like to name, or can name, please do so as it will aide in troubleshooting the issue.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    can't really tell if it's been deleted or not as one has to be a premium member to access "Edit Avatar" and "Edit Options". (but "Edit Email & Password" is available.) but once the change happened, there was no going back and messing with it, either way; but the avatar did "disappear". more accurately, i think, the forum software just did not display the avatar.

    and this is, probably, the answer to the question. if i recall correctly, one has to tell the system to display one's avatar (as well as telling it where to display it from, or to upload one). upon reset, it defaults to "ain't gots me no avatar yet".

    so posted. <grin> i had actually just decided to post an avatar (a pic of me looking through the hinge of my new(at the time) netbook). i didn't change anything; it just stopped showing up. i just assumed it was to do with personalized settings return to default after membership status change. (... hm ... but, come to think of it ... well, no; email and password are necessities of any sort of membership, so those wouldn't "reset to default" ...)

    ... oh! wasn't there something a bit ago about albums getting weird when membership expired? (jamesfromphilly's thread) wonder if they are related?

    thanks :grouphug:

    uh huh.. but listen: what posts do you still see my avatar on? It might
    be one of my ghetto premium posts where I inserted my own avatar in the text.
    or you could be looking at a page that your browser cached before my financial
    melt down and resulting fall from first class membership..

    do you still see my Avatar?

    Brother SkuderJaymes ... did the above happen to you, as Sister MsInterpret reported?

    Your avatar was removed, and you didn't do it yourself?

    Thanks in advance.
