Yes, I know. Wait a few days, anywhere up to two weeks. Well, I did that. Some people see my new avatar, some people don't. I never got to see it. Would it be possible, ever, to have our own avatar uploading tool? I kind of want to change my avatar, seeing as it has been this way for the whole duration of my stay here, and for some reason it's not ticking over - maybe not a MobaFire issue, but if it is Gravatar messing up, it may be a nice indication to let us host our own avatars ^^

Thanks :)

Don't you have to re-change it in your profile to make sure that everyone sees it?


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

You are not an idiot, you just sometimes have your blonde moments... I know I do.

Yeah the issue is with Gravatar's internal caching. They cache their avatars and their system is broken - it doesn't refresh the caches when you change it. I don't know why, and I don't know why they never noticed or fixed it, it's a major flaw.

My "hack" solution is to append a timestamp to the URL when you change your Gravatar avatar. This forces their system to make a new cache. So if you change your Gravatar avatar, you have to come back here and re-change it to update the timestamp.

I could put a random timestamp on them every time they are displayed but, this could prevent your browser from caching them, and could piss off Gravatar and get us blocked.

We do have image uploads and are considering a custom avatar system. Just need to be sure it's not gonna smash our database before we do it.
