Uploaded avatars are displayed in a very low quality in the combined flair.

They are displayed fine in the per-site flairs.

This bug only affects uploaded avatars. Gravatars still work fine.

  • Maybe related: some per-site themes show no image at all for me. (I uploaded a slightly altered copy of my Gravatar flair some time ago; never used flair though.)

  • @Arjan - What you posted is for site specific flair. Did you post a bug for that? If not, please do.

  • Meanwhile, @Oded, all is fine for my site specific flair. No idea when it changed (like I wrote I don't use it). (Didn't know you're working at SE! Forget the flair: the team page is outdated!)

The network flair is on another code path from the per-site flair, causing this issue.

A fix is in the next build, though the network flair is cached, so you will probably only see it change within 24 hours.

  • I just noticed that moderator's mark ♦ behind your name. Am I late to notice it?

    @hims056 - It's been there since Thursday, I believe. And it is subtle ;)
