Can't change your signature? Request updates here.

Hi,

I tried to change my signature and always ended up with Error 502, bad gateway. After some trial and error I think it's related to only one image within a signature. If that is the case some kind of error message would be much better than a 502.

Edit01:
Nope, that's not it. If I use this as Signature, Preview works fine but submitting gives 502:

Embedding works:


Edit02:
Even that is sufficient to get 502:

Edit03:
Tried different browsers, same issue.

Hm... Same here when I tried it with links provided. I doubt it's anything to do with this site tho, since I have seen people using same kind of pictures in signatures.
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:
  • 3VerstsNorth - Analysis of game mechanics in BF4 (tickrates, effects of tickrate, etc)
  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

It must be though, because the other server cannot distinguish if it's in a signature or embedded. Most likely there's some sanity check or whatever used in signature parsing code which fails. With access to the logfiles it should be easy to hunt down.

Well yes, but the problem might the fact that .png file updates constantly etc so while signature tries to save it on server(?) it bucks up. I really don't know about internet things, because I prefer to stay on the "real coding" side. I don't have rights to logs so I can't check those either. However these signatures seem to work on some other users (from bf4stats.org and other signature maker sites).

I doubt that embedded images are stored on your server, all the dynamic generated features would be lost then.

Well, if no one wants to fix this I will just live without this particular signature, doesn't matter much to me. But if I would run this board I would definately try to root cause it (security? availability?).

I tested it just now, removed my bf4stats sig image and tried to put it back - it hangs on submit and leads to an error page eventually. So between now and January (I think that's when I set mine) something went bonk.

This is a bug in the forum software, but I was able to change your signature in the adminpanel.
I guess you guys can request signature changes in this thread until this gets fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
