    When the new site was opened, I had requested that my former blog posts be reposted. Has the old blogs since been deleted or is there a way to transfer them over?

    Also, I attempted to update my Avatar with a 320x240 20kb jpeg file, but I received an error. The avatar is now blank. Is this a system issue?

    Thank you!

    I believe there were issues in transferring blogs over and none of them migrated from the old platform. I can't remember exactly what happened that caused this; @Chip may know?

    Regarding your avatar -
    Your avatar isn't blank now. Did it eventually work? What did the error say?

    Ugh. I don't remember what the issue was with blogs. I'm pretty certain we have an archival version of the prior site. @Martin or @Mirko may remember better what the issue was, but it should be possible to retrieve that data.

    I vaguely remember the issue with the blogs and the archival version of them. I will need to look into it, which I can do in the next few days. :slight_smile:

    Hi, to let you know, I have been looking into the blogs from the old site. Still looking into it, but hoping to be able to provide you with an update shortly. Thanks for your patience. :slight_smile:
