Why does it take over a week for new avatars to appear?

by Kenne Kenne 2/19/1016 Comment Comments »

Whenever I change my default picture, it will take well over a week to appear to everyone else. I changed my photo last week and I am still waiting. I know I'm not the only one with this problem, some of my friends (e.g. Cali_Kat) have had the same problem. Is it a glitch in the server?

I know it happens to a lot of people on here, but one thing I did when I changed mine recently was sign out completely, close the browser, and sign back in.

It worked quickly for me and know it's not the same for everyone, but all I can really suggest. I don't know if it's a glitch or if it's server problems.

I never even know if others can see my avatar or not. I change mine often and I always see it. But I guess others can't. And I can't see yours James.

The "Image Not Available" thing I think is a separate issue, as it depends which browser you are on to see them. 

If I'm on IE and looking at this thread, I can't see any of our three, if in Firefox, I can see all of them, if in Opera, I can't see Kathy's - it's confusing to say the least.

Yeah, you've had that "Image Not Available" sign on for over a month at least.

This is definitely a server issue that we've been fighting with for a while. I can't see yours Kenne (as well as anyone else's besides Robb's), but when you gave me a Respect yesterday, it showed up by your name in my "New Respect" thing - sometimes I don't see them in the forums but I see them in the friends feeds, etc. The techs are definitely aware of this problem and have been working on a permanent solution (server issues are a pain).

I changed my picture 3 weeks ago and I am still waiting on it. I miss having an identity.

Now I see people who just changed their pic getting their new ones up right away.

If we change it again now, would it show up right away?

It's just something we don't know and don't have an answer to. I know that sucks, but just something "we" (mods, Jess, techs, etc.) don't know what makes the difference for some peoples photos to show and others don't.

Your pic isn't appearing

Will anything be done about this glitch in the future? It's been well over a month since I had a picture showing up and same for some of the others too.

 It has been awhile for mine too. It would be nice for this feature to work again.
