Can't view pictures?

Is anyone else having trouble viewing the avatar pics? I've tried on my IPad as well as my desktop and can't view photos on either. A square box pops up with a blue question mark. Can't even see my own profile. I'm fully confused because everything works fine on my phone, and I checked yesterday at my parents place and everything was good there.

I am completely computer illiterate so this is clearly something I can't figure out. Not even sure what info would help out you computer people to help me solve the problem. I have tried on the iPad3 running safari and my desktop has Internet explorer 7 I believe. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry forgot to add I can't see any photos users have added or pics on TR's/ gear reviews either. I can see all the pics on the homepage though.

I have run into the same problem from time to time Jake. I am in the same category as you are in regards to computer skills.

I know enough to do what I have to but things like this are something I don't know anything about.

Typically I just wait a bit and refresh the page and this usually works.

I have tried that before Rick, unfortunately it hasn't been working for me. The problems did seem to coincide with the new homepage so I'm wondering if there is something I need to update on my end? I'm just confused because even on the new iPad3, which I would hope have whatever software I need to view pics, isn't working.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble, Jake. I'll follow up by PM with some troubleshooting steps.

Is anyone else currently experiencing a similar problem with images not appearing correctly on Trailspace?

It is sporadic on my end Dave. Every now and then I will get the blue question marks instead of photos. 

This happens on both my desktop as well as my mobile.

I noticed the same glitch for a couple months. It is intermittent for me as well, and on multiple different systems. I've noticed it on my personal laptop running Windows 7 and my work desktop PC running XP Pro. I am not certain if I have had it happen on my Phone, which is an HTC ADR6425/Rezound, currently operating Android ICS (4.0.1)  which dropped via Verizon a few weeks ago.  I will check on my phone next time i see the glitch on one of my PCs.
