I can't see the pictures!

I'm having some problems getting images from M.A.I.L to show up on my screen. The emoticons are invisible on the post editing screen. The buttons for things like "post new topic" are not showing up. The thumbnails in the gallery come up fine, but I get nothing if I try to go to the larger picture. Some of the artwork is invisible, like the David on the front page.

Can anyone help?

I was beginning to think it was just me. I've had the same problem intermittently for about half a week. Seems OK now - provided I don't go into the new gallery items. If I do things won't work afterwards exactly as Aderamelech describes. I wonder if one of the thumbnails might be corrupt somehow? It seemed to stop for the rest of the board after more was added to the new stuff page and bumped the offending item off of the home page.

the same thing was happing to me a few days ago. but my problem seems to be corrected though. the weird thing was that the images would work before i signed in but right afterwards my computer wouldn't download them. could it have been a virus?

Try dumping your browser cache? That solves a lot of image problems...

Yes, it's exactly as HerrBGone says. When I logged on just a few minutes ago everything seemed fine. So I went to new gallery items. Still fine. I clicked on a thumbnail and got a blank white screen. After going back from that, all the other graphics I mentioned are rendered invisible. I'll try the cache dumping, see how it goes.

Maybe it's a problem with IE? I switched over to browsing with Netscape and the problem no longer seems to be happening. Confused

Hrm. I can't imagine what causes it. I use both IE and Mozilla, and don't see it. There must be something you guys have in common. When you come into the site, do you log into the board, or the main page? If the main page, do you have trouble posting to the board afterwards?
