Not sure this is a problem warranting this kind of vitriol... most likely it's one of the bugs that needs working out.

I'll leave it to our friendly web guy to let us know what the deal is.

What I assume is the case, that the forum still things it's physical address is www.offspring.com/forums, and not www.offspring.com/community. So it tries to save the image to a location that doesn't exist.

Yes, that was the first thing that came to my mind as I saw the 'Invalid file' warning... Thanks, I'll just wait until it's possible to change it.

And Sarah, I didn't mean to be rude, I'm just used to use that phrase ;)

Yeah, I've been trying to change my avatar for a while now. I thought it was just the files I was choosing.

That would also explain why the archives and my original forums homepage isn't working anymore right?

Basically yes. Although http://(www.)offspring.com/forums should work now.
But the archive links still leads to http://(www.)offspring.com/forums/archive, if you just replace 'forums' in the link with 'community' it should work again.

Oh... thanks... I still wonder though, why did it get changed from forum to communtiy in the first place? The moderators didn't have anything to do with the changing of the boards right?

Probably because 'community' sounds more modern/hip/2.0 or something. There's a whole bunch of us who would rather go back to 'BBS' even, which it was before it became 'forums' :)
But no, the moderators had no input in this.

I call it the BBS and I wasn't even a member when it was known as the BBS... I remember a different website before the one before this one... I used to come to the website but I had no idea about chat rooms and stuff at the time...

EDIT: I wish it had stayed like it was before the new design. It made it seem like the summer of 2009 when I would come on at night...
