Is this board under maintenance? The pictures disabled to save bandwidth.
The percentage of time the pictures actually work for me here has to be about 10% so far. That means 90% of the time I have spent here so far the pictures are not loading.

Even the advert banner at the top sometimes does not show.

I've seen nothing like this, but I don't show the adverts so maybe there's a problem there.

Oh ... and welcome to the geek from faraway exotic Cardiff.

I'm running Win 98 SE
Internet explorer 6.0

The problem is limited to this website.

Sometimes the advert banner at the top does not show
The "Tanga" ad on the left always shows

When games are searched for, the images do not normally show.
When "Images" is selected above I get a load of squares where the images should be.
Your avatars don't show
The small pencil icon for editing "My profile" don't show.
The smilies when writing a message - only 6 out of ? show

Rarely the images do all work.

Deleting my TIF (cache) has solved the problem - for now - can't think why that would do it.


PS, thanks for the welcome Steve

I get the same problem when I check BGG from my high school. No avatars, no pictures. Sometimes the logo in the upper left (the running guy) is just text. I still get most of the smileys and ads. This happens through IE and Firefox.

The school system has some web-blocking software on the system, to keep the net kid-friendly, and I always figured that perhaps that school filter was somehow blocking all the pictures. This phenomena only happens through the school's network. When I connect my school laptop to my home internet, BGG is normal.
