I've tried both the sponge and the towel. I tested it by chucking an egg and cleaning it right off. When I try to clean it with just the paint on it won't come off. She could be playing a joke on me and uploaded her avatar with the paint on it, but she seems to have eaten her bowl of ***** flakes today. Heh...

Been noticing not just paint splatter, but certain member avatar's stay stuck with whatever has been thrown on them. It won't clean off either. I suspect it should go away if I uninstalled the mod, but I rather like it... any help? :D

Are you using cache? If so what kind? What image system (GD or ImageMagick) are you using? How are you avatars stored? Are you noticing this on all types, or only ones that are external links, or stored in the database, or animated, etc...?

No cache system installed right now. Using GD. Avatars are stored in the database. The database is stored in another server though. No, not on all types of avatars. None of the avatars are using external links except maybe when first uploaded. No problems specifically with animated avatars either other than the items stops the animation until it's cleaned.

Fascinating. The information helps. Let me think on it a bit. I may need to poke around your board if that's okay.

I'm going to post another request for user options. I know you said to just make another usergroup but the easier alternative as a whole would be to have options in the members User Cp. Basically an On/Off option where they could either use it and get egged or not use it and not get egged. I am getting some complaints about it and with multiple usergroups already it just seems easier to have an on/off option for the member to choose.

I personally feel like it defeats the purpose. It would be like letting a user decide you can't give them reputation.

Actually, I don't think it will solve your problem either. Users who don't want to be egged will turn it off and be happy, but users trying to egg them will get an error saying "This user can't be egged" and be mad.

I think perhaps the best solution is to provide a 4th item type. Good, Bad, Clean, and Protect. So a user could throw say a plastic sheet at their own avatar that would project them from the next x number of eggs thrown (cost depending on how many eggs it protects from).

nascartr 08 Apr 2009 04:48

Ah, I don't use it for that anyway...it's just for fun to 90% of my members. Only about 10% don't like it.

That's a pretty good idea actually. How would I go about doing that or could you code it to do that and possibly without the use of credits, just have the option of how many to protect from when adding the item.

Hmmm... the avatars are clean now. Maybe my browser cache was all whacked out? Anyway, yeah I'm experiencing an issue like nascartr with a few people hating the mod while the majority like it. I think I'll turn it on only for special occasions and holidays. The first being kinda obvious, Easter hehe, and then get creative with the other holidays like fireworks for the 4th, eggs again for Halloween, and so forth. Here is a great free icon site where you can get stuff to throw.

The 32x32 sized ones fit best.

So I'll spare you for now hambil. I really doubt you'd want to visit my site anyway. Thank you for this eggxellent mod. Sorry, couldn't resist. :D
