  3. As Jan says we have no control over the profile initials' colour. It should be simple to upload a profile image. Click on your existing avatar to get the dialog shown below. Select Upload Photo, then choose the photo from your computer or stored on another device. Trying the latter case I encountered a file size limit of 50Kb. Gravatar has been dropped from the list of available options.
  4.

  5. It is exactly what it says it is! i.e. an announcement that the forum software was upgraded last night and to post here if you have new problems. It'll go away tomorrow night.

  8. The on stage photos released by the ROH, and also by DanceTabs, are of the Nuñez/Nuntagirov cast. DanceTabs here, ROH here and also here (four casts in the studio).
  9. There's been an erratic problem today with pages refusing to display properly. Having reported it to The Powers I found that 10 seconds later all seemed fine. Magic - I hope.
  10. The awards ceremony is being live-streamed from 12.50 today on the National Dance Awards' Facebook page.

  12. Interesting and warmly positive article about Luke Jennings and his writing technique on his retirement from The Observer. It's by Rosemarie Gerhard, a lecturer at the RAD, and is on the British Ballet Now & Then website.

  14. Anyone else having trouble with this? It seems completely broken - I get and error screen when I try to search. I'll give it a while and then report it if not cured.

  17. I don't use a Flickr account but gather that the free service is 'limited' to 1,000 images. The system here doesn't allow for individual tailoring in that way.
  18. The size limit of individual uploads is 150k so I don't quite understand your problem unless you have hit your head on the ceiling. There is an overall limit per member of 1.5Mb - I've just increased it so it might be worth trying again. The way round the restrictions is to upload images to a file sharing site and link to them from there. That's how, for instance, DanceTabs' photos are put on the site without overloading the system, in that case via Flickr. Hope that helps.
  19. It's pretty standard these days for websites to be able to detect the nature of the device that you're using and adapt their display accordingly. Effectively that relies on having several potential versions of the site sitting on top of each other and presumably, in this case, the coding changes needed for different screen sizes haven't been completed which is why there seems to be a mish-mash.
