    I've noticed some people have black boxes for their avatar. Does that mean something?

    If their questions crash we can recover the important information.


    Simple as that really.

    ROMOS

    I know, but they still call it the black box.
    lambshank

    yeah,why is that?
    ROMOS

    I think it's because of the circumstances,not a lot of good news on the thing.

    Hey, just learned that there is meant to be a black box inside the orange box,so when they crash and burn it can be found, an Aussie invention,have I astounded you with my new found knowledge?
    ROMOS

    Not really,Aussie knowledge derives from SCOTLAND.

    Romos..NOooo my family hail from Hong Kong and New Zealand, so my astounding knowledge has nothing to do with the Scotts,I was once married to an Irishman,thankfully it didn't hold me back...much!!lol

    ROMOS has a good answer. The blackout is a red flag for me. Someone who has no reference to himself aside from that?

    yep,feel the same

    It simply means the picture they tried to upload did not take or has disappeared. Sometimes a person hotlinks a picture from the internet and that picture is coded in such a way that the link going back to the site the picture was taken from gets broken. This causes the avatar to go black as the picture was removed.
