I'm sure you all still notice avatars and pictures are still offline. With Nikiski's, the server's administrator, recent move to Canada and busy with other personal affairs, it seems like it'll take a while longer for the server to come back and we all regain access to our board's pictures, avatars and icons.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
In the meantime the annual Awaken as a Bear Christmas theme is back. Special thanks to Night Bear for hosting the Christmas banner on her photobucket account. Unfortunately I don't own a copy of the background picture, so until the server is back online I'm afraid we'd have to make due with a black background. Unless you all have pictures to donate to use as a Christmas background.
