The profile picture which I have uploaded through my home pc is not getting reflected in my profile in stackoverflow. Any probable reasons for this? Is there a normal delay?

I also don't see profile picture of other users.

Yes. I'm not able to see any pic. Are you able to see any pic ? – Krsna Chaitanya Sep 11 '13 at 9:48
I can see a picture of a man in a blue shirt and sunglasses. – psubsee2003 Sep 11 '13 at 9:48
Are you not able to see that picture anywhere (including Stack Overflow) or are you not able to see it on specific sites (like Meta, Stack Apps, and Unix/Linux)? – psubsee2003 Sep 11 '13 at 9:50
Could be blocked on your system? – Richard Tingle Sep 11 '13 at 9:52
may be my office network has blocked the pic – Krsna Chaitanya Sep 11 '13 at 9:53

How come I'm able to see other pics. I'm able to see others' profile pics like BalusC – Krsna Chaitanya Sep 11 '13 at 10:13

I can confirm that your picture is there, and that you look positively dashing. It appears that, unfortunately, is blocked at your office.

This means that you don't get to look at cat gifs all day, and are therefore less productive. Someone should do something about that.

Stack overflow images (profile pictures, pictures in posts) are hosted at Image hosting services including are often blocked on corporate networks and this may well be the difficulty for you.

I had the same problem. The profile picture I uploaded wasn't appearing anywhere besides the page where I uploaded it. After trying lots of other things, I noticed there is a Save Profile button way down at the bottom of the page. I uploaded yet again, then pressed the Save Profile button and the problem was fixed! Doh!

Why did this get down voted? I thought it might help someone. It would have helped me! – Jim L. Feb 28 at 20:13
This is not relevant. In the case of this question, it's about not seeing any profile picture using imgur as the host. The OP mentioned it in a comment, I've now added this to the question itself to prevent future confusion. – Shadow Wizard Feb 28 at 22:05
You shouldn't down vote a legitimate answer and then make your question more specific. That's just rude. – Jim L. Feb 28 at 23:40
I did not downvote, I explained the likely reason. – Shadow Wizard Feb 29 at 5:29
