I updated my avatar under firefox and kept getting the old one shown. Then I logged in on IE and found the new one displayed.

Now I have a display of the same post in firefox with the old avatar and IE with the new one.

Is this simply a matter of some sort of caching?

Actually, you have to refresh for it to show the new one.

What's wrong with your chin? :D

Thanks
Fixed that.

I'm just trying to hold the smile up. I'll have to wait for feedback in the thread about me and put up some others.

Ned, just thought I'd say that new avatar is a fine looking individual. I do see your old one still here in this thread though. The new one I can see in Defenderof thefaith's thread about evolution. The one Juhranimo is currently in.

Yes, a caching issue. Usually refreshing the page will fix it.

Here's another picture of Ned.

That's me in the lower right.

Catholic Scientist here. I've abbreviated my name to Cat Sci.

And I've changed my avatar so it doesn't show my face anymore.

Get it? Cat Sci... Cat's eye...

I'll see myself out.

I recently saw a video about the building of the St. Louis Arch. Pretty cool. Apparently it's the ____est ____ structure in the ____. I didn't know there was a little train inside.

I changed my avatar a few weeks ago so I know the procedures, the limits, and the reload requirements etc like that.

Now it won't update.

Tried the "delete cookies" trick but I still had instant sign-in. The www.evcforums.net (5 cookies) did not reset.

I deleted the cookies manually from chrome.

Had to manually sign-in as expected, cookies restored on my system as expected, still had old avatar as expected but still cannot update avatar.

On Windows 10 with latest Chrome both of which update themselves periodically. Don't know if either/both updated in last two weeks but probably so.

So I cannot update my avatar and "delete cookies" doesn't.

Is this you or me?

Nah, not just you - mine wouldn't update at all. Tried a couple of times. Mines an iMac.

Re: Avatar Stuck
It's the image cache. To save time Browsers put images in a cache and load them only once. If the pathname doesn't change then the image won't change, even when you do change it. Your old image was at http://www.evcforum.net/Images/Avatars/5742.jpg, and your new one simply overwrote it.

So just erase your image cache:

  • Go to Google Chrome's "Settings" page.
  • Click on "Clear browsing data..."
  • Make sure only the checkbox for "Cached images and files" is checked.
  • Click on "Clear browsing data"

If that doesn't work then near the top of the "Clear browsing data" page you'll see it says, "Obliterate the following items for ", select a time period that goes back to before you changed your avatar, then try again.

The cache is updated periodically anyway, I don't know how often. Love the new avatar.

If it's the Charlie Brown jack-o-lantern, I've been seeing it for days...

You have to clear your browser cache every time you change your avatar if you want to see it yourself.
