Why isn’t my Gravatar image updating?

The chat displays my picture but in my posts/answers on askubuntu and meta.askubuntu the "pattern" is diplayed.

Here is a link to my AskUbuntu profile, showing that I have an avatar, and here is a link to one of my posts, where you see the pattern.

an answer in the same site

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I see your picture the same as it is here. Did you just change it? It may take time to propogate through the system. – Josh Mein Jan 5 '13 at 21:27
You see the pattern, right? But when you look at my account you will see a photo – guntbert Jan 5 '13 at 21:28
On this page I see something that is not what I see in your user profile page on this very site. It could be a cache issue. – kiamlaluno Jan 5 '13 at 21:28

It is most likely a caching issue or an issue on gravatars end; however, I am currently seeing the image as being the same.

Ok, thx for the explanation - I suppose the hats were the trigger – guntbert Jan 5 '13 at 21:44

It looks like this is a caching problem. If you look at the image URL in your profile, you see the following:


profile pic

If you look at the URL in your posts, you see the following URL, except the s parameter is changed to something smaller:


pattern image

If you change the s parameter, you see the new image. This is coming from Gravatar, and this is not a Stack Exchange bug. As others mentioned, wait awhile to see if the CDN servers on Gravatar eventually update.
