Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

My Gravatar isn't showing on Stackoverflow or here on Meta. Everything checks out fine on Gravatar's site, and I'm using the same email address for all 3 accounts. So what's up?

My Gravatar is definitely G-rated so what's up?

Is it your DisplayName in some kind of starburst array? – random Mar 25 '10 at 13:02

It takes at least 24 hours before you will see it.

In my case I think this was the issue. Thanks! – s15199d Mar 26 '10 at 13:46

They use very aggressive caching. Wait a day or two.

Alternatively if you use gmail or another provider that supports this register a new gravatar account using the email; after that upload your avatar and change the email on stack overflow (doing it in this order is very important)
