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

If you click any of the images you will see it becomes George Bailey when the page loads but on the images on the accounts tab it still shows the old display name. How can this be fixed?

The flair on the accounts tab is quite heavily cached - when did you change your name? – ChrisF Jan 7 '11 at 13:34
I don't even see any related accounts, actually. But @ChrisF is correct - the flair doesn't update for a while when it comes to profile changes (display name and gravatar, basically). They might not change for days at a time, until at least you earn a badge on the site. That typically will trigger a refresh at around the end of the day. – Grace Note Jan 7 '11 at 13:40
@Grace - use the link in the question, not his MSO profile. – ChrisF Jan 7 '11 at 13:41
@ChrisF I did. It also shows nothing for me. See esto. – Grace Note Jan 7 '11 at 13:45
@Grace - he must have unlinked his accounts. It was showing for me when I checked before adding my comment. – ChrisF Jan 7 '11 at 13:50
Sorry about that.. I have been linking them and unlinking them trying to have two sets of related accounts.. – George Bailey Jan 10 '11 at 18:17
It is OK now. They all match now. – George Bailey Jan 10 '11 at 18:18

Flair images are heavily cached, so it may take 24-48 hours for any profile changes to be visible in them.
