Or it could just be random

The later seems more likely El

I understand that an FM = Forum Member 

But what is a GT and a T is the survey section?

Also, why the different colours?

Different colours to differentiate between Tim and Tom!

I see on the Social Strata help forum that others have commented on the white banner header being problematical for people particularly on phones where the topic title in lengthy, the affect on avatar pictures being rounded (Baz, you've been a bit decapitated ), and the dissapearance of the division betwen featured and other topics. No responses as yet from Social Strata but too soon to expect any.

@Lori one possibility re featured and unfeatured topics could be to insert a bar rather like the one under Profile Information on ones's Profile Page.

 

The code line "<div id="topicsContainer">" seems to mark where unfeatured topics start. It would mean that the bar would also appear at the start of subsequent pages of the lists of topics but I don't think that would matter.

The fact that the banner heading is showing on mobiles will be fixed (that's apparently a bug). Also, looks like it's not supposed to default to white--I would expect the background color to change, as well. I figured out how to do it  myself yesterday, but I think when they fix that, it will have been a waste of time for me to figure that out.

I'll hold off on any CSS changes until we make any bug fixes, @El Loro

I think the avatars might also be adjusted, so don't make any changes to your avatars, OK?

Yes, and I can do the same, but I'd rather wait until we've done any bug fixes.

We have bugs?

Here you are, Baz, until you can be restored to your full glory

That's your forum picture but even that is a bit cut off from this on some foreign site elsehwere:

Oooooo I like that ....you can see the flower 

That’s  much better  

Ooh! Things have changed....after a shufti didn't even notice the banner at the top of the page, quite helpful with my record of getting chucked into old threads, at least I'll have some idea where I am 😂

Wonder if my little bear is ok....

He is and he hasn't been imprisoned in a circle😂😂😂😂

Well. We've made a few changes:

1. The sticky topic heading won't show on mobile devices.
2. Instead of being a stark white, the sticky topic heading will be the background color of the forum.
3. As you can see, we now have the option to go back to the square avis. However, I can see that Baz's avi is still cropped, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. On the profile page, it says that an avi should be "at least 300 x 300 pixels", and this one shows for me as being 95 x 120...which is smaller, so why doesn't it fit?? 

 @El Loro, any ideas? I might go back and look at Neil's fix (as you referenced above), but that would impact EVERYone, and not everyone has the issue.

my banner is still white!

I respectfully disagree. 

If you scroll all the way up, you'll see the forum topic header. If you scroll down a little bit, you'll see the color doesn't change (it's pretty pale, but the same color as the forum.

@Lori unfortunately there don't seem to be any larger pictures of Baz's avatar I can find.

 

There seems to be a bigger problem in that her picture seems to have lost the animation.

 

I attach two photos, "Baz.gif" was the old one which was already decapitated at the top, "Baz 2.gif" is the new one. I think though that the new one will still slice the top off to look like the old one.

@Baz and @Lori I think the reason why Baz's newer picture is cropped at the top and the bottom is that the dimensions are not the same length, so the system crops the picture so thay the dimensions are the same. I've done a search to see if there are any which are the same but there aren't any.

 

I think the reason why Baz's animation isn't showing is that the picture needs to be uploaded from a computer rather than direct from this site.

 

So one needs to right clip on the Baz 2 picture, then Save Image As onto your computer. Then from the menu at the top right which drops down when hovering over your name select Update Your Profile. Scroll down to Profile Picture/Avatar, click Replace Avatar. Find Baz 2.gif from your computer, Open it and wait for the image to be uploaded and processed. It's not instant. Once you get the Success message you are sent back to your Profile page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on Update Profile.

 

Although still cropped, the animation should be back.

Lori, yes, it's worked - the animation is working. There's still a bit of cropping but not as much as before.

 

If one was to use a GIF editor to resize the gif so that the dimensions were the same, even though the cropping probably wouldn't happen, the result would not be flattering
