Hi, if you view this site in Safari, you may be noticing some broken image links. A broken image link will appear as a question mark in a blue box, as in the "Members at the Moment" graphic on the right side of the home page, shown below.

Broken image links seem to be an issue with only those images that I have stored on an external site, and only when the site is viewed in Safari. (When viewed in Chrome, for instance, the images are all showing up just fine.)

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I and my tech guys are working on this issue. I hope it will be resolved soon. When it rains, it pours! Story of my life lately!

Seems okay now - maybe it was a fluke, though I'm still checking into it. Safari recently changed some viewing permission rules related to other sites, which require users to manually set permissions to automatically hear and see certain things when they visit a website. For instance, under Safari "Preferences/Websites", I needed to select "Auto-Play" next to the Cookie Connection site in order to be able to hear the normal sounds our chat room makes when comments get posted.

I adjusted some of my other personal settings last night, which may have helped me. If anyone else experiences the same issue, you may need to look at your own personal Safari permissions. Some permissions on Safari (like Auto-Play) have to be controlled now at a local level.

Update: I am still encountering issues with the images sometimes showing up and sometimes not (in Safari only), so I am calling in paid technical reinforcements (not Hoop.la support, who says they can't help) to help resolve it. It may be a week or more before it's addressed, as my normal computer guy is traveling and quite busy. Hang tight! In the meantime, best to view in Chrome where everything appears as it should.

UPDATE: This issue is now corrected. Apparently, the site was calling on some http (not https) links, and recent security upgrades made to the site were preventing images with http links from being viewable on Safari. All links and embedded content on the site are now secure https links.
