Can't change my avatar!


#1

Not getting an error message, but my avatar doesn’t change. If it matters, there is a duplicate of my avatar already on the forum (not sure if it gets hashed or something).


#2

I dunno, but your avatar is looking really blurry now. Perhaps its not uploading properly and re-processing the same avatar over and over. I can barely make out your ugly face :stuck_out_tongue:

edit:
So the newbies dont think i’m being mean to chris (well i am…)… Chris flew to Australia to meet up with me… we’ve met and give each other crap regularly.


#3

I had this too. After a few days the avatar suddenly changed. I believe it was still stored in cache somehow.


#4

I see that FEZ Kings have created a joint venture? :slight_smile:


#5

I don’t see an old avatar, I see a joint venture!


#6

I whined about this same issue earlier this spring. It is a wierd caching issue. The odd part being that clearing my local browser cache did not always result in seeing the new image.

Likewise.

@ Chris - as Josh said, I too see you’ve Ascended…


#7

Hmm telling the image to reload explicitly didn’t do anything, however opening the image in a new tab and then telling it to reload worked for me.

And yes, the Kings have been working on creating something together for the past 6 months :slight_smile: We would like to use our knowledge and experience to help other members of the community.

That did the trick :stuck_out_tongue:

Just be lucky Mark’s photo isn’t up, he’s done a FANTASTIC job of bashing his face up playing hockey, now he always has this smug sorta smile :smiley:

So, what’s the consensus, do we all have to clear our caches when people change their AVs? There should be an HTTP header that dictates the image is out of date IIRC.

… And yeah, Mark and I have been working on stuff together for a while now. I was in AU for 2 weeks in April. If you’re my friend on FB, you’ve probably seen the fallout of that trip in image form :wink:

You can force browsers to redownload an avatar by appending the upload timestamp to the ‘src’ of the ‘img’ tag.


<img src="avatar.jpg?t=uploadtime" />
