What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I was about to link to my flairtm, when I noticed my avatar doesn't quite fit...

This looks like a bug with the new upload-your-own feature; you are not using a gravatar image, and that's where this is going wrong

Unicorns are far too awesome to be contained within flair. –  Bart Jan 13 '13 at 14:10

@Bart I hope that's not an intended feature xD –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:16
    
The combined flair manages it just fine: stackexchange.com/users/flair/1420160.png (just observing what works and what doesn't). –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:18
    
@MartijnPieters I know, but I want to link to my StackOverflow flair. –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:19

What is also interesting is that not only does the combo-flair use the same image, and sized it correctly, but your network profile shows a gravatar image instead (which is totally different). –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:24
    
@MartijnPieters I does not seem to be able to edit my network profile avatar. –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:26
    
@DJDavid98: It takes that info from your oldest account in the network, automatically. Obviously, the new imgur-hosted avatar images are not (yet) included in that sync. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:27
    
Also of note is that the live version doesn't show any avatar image for me; just the yellow 'attach photo here' square. I've added it to your post, it is probably relevant. This only applies to the hotdog theme, the other images on your Stack Overflow flair page still show the oversized version. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:28
    
@MartijnPieters Well, looks like I'm now officially screwed. –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:32
    
@DJDavid98: You officially will get Meta reputation for discovering an actual bug, that the SE team will be grateful for receiving and fixing for you ASAP. :-) –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:33
    
@DJDavid98: In the meantime, you can still use Gravatar to get a decently-sized flair back, of course. :-) –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:33
    
@MartijnPieters I guess... xD And I use gravatar on other pages too, where I would like to keep it as-is. I'll just wait for the SE team then, thanks. –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:34
    
@DJDavid98: you don't have a second email address you can attach a gravatar to? If you use gmail, for example, it's trivial to create special email addresses for purposes like these. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 13 '13 at 14:35
    
@MartijnPieters I don't feel like trying to get that working. I will just wait for SE to fix "itself". –  DJDavid98 Jan 13 '13 at 14:39

This will be ... probably, with the next build.

We couldn't quite reproduce this, but we narrowed it down to a possibly buggy line of code. Having fixed that up, this is most likely fixed. We'll know in a day or so (after the next build) when flair starts getting re-rendered as it falls out of cache.

Looks like it's all fixed, thanks! –  DJDavid98 Jan 25 '13 at 20:42
