    The other is older. Only Jon Skeet can post a dupe and have the original closed. – American Luke Dec 19 '12 at 2:36

Gravatar is experiencing problems - they're returning a 504 Gateway Timeout error for all requests. It has nothing to do with Stack Exchange. You'll just have to deal with it for a while, until they fix whatever their issue is. Any Gravatars still in your cache will continue to show until your browser attempts to update them again.
