    Uploading a new profile picture is broken- you can delete the picture upload a new one- and the system is just switching it back to your old one

    The " next photo" issue is being worked on

    We are aware that for some of you, when you upload a new picture and enter a country- it does not update on your map

    Changing your username is NOT possible for the moment- when you try to do this using edit, it will error.

    This has been fixed.

    We are still working diligently on the other issues. We will keep you updated.

    The map is working. It is just slow. You must wait 24 hrs for the map to reset. After 24 hrs if you do not see the updated map refresh your page and it will be there.
    Now I have asked tech if we can get this process to work faster, but for now it is working. We just need to be patient.
  • Dear Amber,
    I see the map is working.
    However, I must admit that having started on the old site in 2006, I still use it whenever possible. I find the map there a lot clearer. For instance, even Crete is quite visible on my old map, whereas on the new one , we can hardly see Greece.
    I may be asking too much, but would it be possible at all to update the map on the old site too, being as the list of countries is completed on both sites.
    Thanks in advance for your response.
    Marie-Louise.
  • As I wrote yesterday, the map works OK. It's just that the map on Beta TE is a lot clearer, and I just wondered if it would be too much asking for an update on the Beta Te map.
    Thanks in advance if ever you can do something.
    Best regards.

    Please help me understand what you are asking. If the Beta map is already "a lot clearer" as you stated, what needs to be updated exactly?
  • clearer... clarifying
    I think Marie-Louise is saying that the design of the map from the older TE version (now called 'beta') is better - she prefers its appearance, because it is clear, easier to look at.
    But the updating of visited countries is not being effectuated, like it is done in the new version.
    She would like to have the maps from the old version updated, too.

    Marie-Louise, correct me, please, if I'm wrong.

    Ok, got it. Thank you for the clarification. Tech is aware of this. It is in the queue to be fixed.
