What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Related accounts in profiles of SO/SU/etc seems to not update the avatar picture.

I try cleaning cache, but I think is a server-side problem.

I don't know if it's a bug or designed behavior.

Your gravatars are all the same now though –  random Jul 28 '09 at 12:07
I don't know, if I click here: meta.stackoverflow.com/users/52879?tab=accounts#sort-top the image is different –  Drake Jul 28 '09 at 13:35
It can take over a day for both sizes of avatars to change...but they look the same for me. –  jjnguy Jul 28 '09 at 15:32
This evening I tried from home, funny that here it is working. I think that at this point the problem is generated by my company's proxy, probably it creates a cache of some pages. Sorry for bother, I think that some one can close. –  Drake Jul 28 '09 at 18:13

It just takes a little while. Have some faith/patience.

Also, make sure that your emails are the same on both accounts. That is what Gravitar uses to update your avatar on these sites.

And clear your cache while you're at it. –  Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 28 '09 at 13:42
Hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Then unplug your computer for 30 min and let it rest for a bit. Then start your computer up again. Repeat this process at least 2 more times. Then clear your cache, then try it. –  jjnguy Jul 28 '09 at 13:44
i tried, same as before –  Drake Jul 28 '09 at 15:13
Rubbing ice-cream on the keyboard sometimes works for me. –  bobobobo Aug 11 '09 at 18:39
