When I search (like "smi") for users in the reputation leagues of stackoverflow, the information of some users is not loaded and the loading symbol ("Loading user information") gets displayed.

I´m using Chrome 24.0.1312.52. Executing the search again (Navigate to SearchBox and hit Enter) finally displays the user information.

(Click on image for zoom.) Loading user information

  • Worth to mention that those are not all users, just "top users" so for example you won't find users who don't have 200 rep in any account. And +1, just reproduced it. Commented Jan 17, 2013 at 11:39

I think this is fixed now. I wasn't able to reproduce it locally, and reproduced it only inconsistently on the live site.

The issue had to do with the timing surrounding adding two script blocks, for which one is dependent on the other, to the DOM via jQuery's html function.

  • Pretty certain it's fixed, as I was able to reproduce it just fine before and now it works OK. Commented Jan 17, 2013 at 22:22
  • Update: same bug still exists only for your own profile picture and name when you switch sites. (to a site where you have account) Commented Jan 17, 2013 at 22:25
  • I can confirm that the bug is resolved. User information is now loaded.

  • @Jehof never mind, too minor anyway. Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 8:01
  • This issue is not fixed - I'm experiencing it right now on the Space Exploration site. Also, my displayed score is a bit out of date.
