I'm trying to change my avatar (custom) and can't change it anymore! It's always the same pic now... -___-
And doesn't update to the new one... T_T

Help?

Gravatar appears to be having some issues. Have you tried clearing your browser cache?

Got the same problem. I cleared my cache, but it didn't help.

I recently changed my avatar, it took some time for the new one to appear... If you have waited long enough, the problem is probably at Gravatar ;)

Well, gotta wait then... they have to get their errors solved. I think.

Well I put in a possible work around. Try going to your profile, changing to a different avatar, saving, then going back and changing to your gravatar again.

It will now add the time stamp at which you changed back to Gravatar to the end of the URL, hopefully forcing Gravatar to update its cache. This is a new feature I just put in this evening.

If it works then that means every time you change your Gravatar you'll have to do this again - swap avatars on MOBAFire to update it. Generally people only do that once in a while so it shouldn't be a huge issue, at least until we can replace Gravatar.

Yeah... A solid workaround would be to change the time stamp every time but, I have a feeling we may get blacklisted from Gravatar for doing that. This way at least, you have the power to update your Gravatar at will, it just takes the extra step of going to your profile and swapping it.
