Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Hard to explain so I'll use pictures. User without Gravatar account, clicking the "change picture" link:

Then clicking the "Gravatar" line results in:

Upon reloading the page the profile picture is back to the default. Guess the change is failing behind the scenes, so we better be notified in such a case and have no display change.

The Gravatar URL produced by the JavaScript is double-encoded so the "use identicons" setting isn't parsed properly and it falls back to using the Gravatar logo instead (if you don't have a custom Gravatar). – Jeremy Banks Jan 15 '13 at 15:12
So the bug is in showing that gravatar default icon? – Shadow Wizard Jan 15 '13 at 15:25
I think so. [3 more to go...] – Jeremy Banks Jan 15 '13 at 16:04
Well, bug is a bug! :) – Shadow Wizard Jan 15 '13 at 16:33

This should be fixed now. As usual, it was a url encoding issue (&).

Yep, now the picture is the default gravatar. Thanks! :) – Shadow Wizard Jan 19 '13 at 12:09
