I've been trying to update my ubergeek badge for Halloween but no luck. It's been ages since I changed it and it's a bit confusing with 2 places to upload imaged and a checkbox for each. I've done it before but I've tried every option I could think of with no luck.

My image is a standard PNG at 96x18.

Anyone else have problems?

It's the blue image with the silhouettes above the avatar. I can't seem to change that image.

EDIT- I tried both Explorer and Chrome. I think I've tried all the possible combinations of selections. With and without checked box, in both and either field. Both with selected file, just the top, just the bottom. It's an oddball selection system.

EDIT2- I tried an old one I know worked in the past so it doesn't seem like a file corruption problem.

Anyone know what "Bar Position" is supposed to do? I don't remember that being there before and it defaults to 35.

I've been trying just the preview button since I'm afraid to save and ruin my ubergeek badge and not being able to restore it.

So the preview doesn't work but you can still change it if you save?

Surprised no BGG admin responded since I assume everyone would have this problem, not just us.


EDIT- OK, I risked trying the "save" function and it worked. Great! Hopefully someone that does the BGG code will see this thread and make a fix at some point.

This really bugs me too.
Are we the only ones who change their überbadges? Or are "infected"?

I had asked some geeks individually, one said that he also saw the ABC12345678 thing, but it didn't bother him because he never changes his überbadge.

Strange then and now.

I've not tried this recently as I only ever uploaded an image once and left it. But there is a bit of a history of the preview breaking.
Ubergeekbadge problems...

I'm not sure that helps you any, but perhaps contacting one of the admins that helped me out on that thread would?

I did contact an admin about it, without any response though (he was offline for a long time but since his return he didn't react).

Maybe I try Octavian.
Or did you, Scott?

I didn't contact anyone. I assumed that someone at BGG headquarters monitors the "Bugs" forum.

Good one.
I wonder, sometimes reported bugs are taken care of rather quickly.
Sometimes noone cares at all ever.

Meh.

I will contact Octavian.

It belongs to the regular geekbadge, not the ubergeek badge.

It is also broken, but it didn't used to be. (I'm venturing to these forums to report it, actually.) It doesn't work at all right now.

If you look at my badge, it's the position of where to separate the two background colors of the left and right box. Mine is currently at 39.

Thanks! Was curious what that was supposed to do.

Looks like my bar issue still works, just the preview is broken for me too.

Also - talking with others - they experience the uberbadge preview issue as well, but have always been able to save it.

(We frequently change our badges for PBF games.)

Yes it is only the preview which is not working, you can save the überbadge but it is sooooo tiring
to switch back and forth a number of times until you have the inner and outer border right.

I just geekmailed Octavian about it with a link to this thread.
