Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When looking at this, I am a bit confused:

enter image description here

In the combined flair, you see the hash of my old email address. Above (and this holds for every stackexchange site I have an account for), you see the hash of my "new" email address, which I changed about 3 weeks ago. When I did so, I changed it for StackOverflow and then chose "Copy StackOverflow profile to all Stack Exchange accounts". Subsequently, all other Stack Exchange accounts also showed the new image, but not the combined flair. What do I have to do to change the combined flair too? Is this a bug?

Not the answer you are looking for, but I wonder if you've considered using a Gravatar? – Jon Ericson Feb 21 '12 at 21:42
@JonEricson: I have, and decided against it. – blubb Feb 21 '12 at 21:49
You could set up a Gravatar that looks like your current icon (whichever one you prefer). Just a thought. – Keith Thompson Feb 22 '12 at 0:52
If you specify a different style for the flair the correct avatar is displayed. Seems like it's just the flair image that's being inappropriately cached. – Jeremy Banks Feb 22 '12 at 4:55

The generated flair image is cached for up to 24 hours. It looks like your gravatar has updated correctly now that the cache has expired.
