I have added an avatar in Gravatar before 2 months and still not visible on Stack Overflow. I have also selected it. When I go to gravatar and see , it is selected but still no luck. Please help.

  • Did you try to upload your profile picture by a new way?

  • @hims056 yeah tried different ways with different images with different resolutions.. Jan 31, 2013 at 5:26
  • Maybe since you entered an invalid HTTP URL in your profile (instead of leaving it empty) this somehow stops the image from being correctly drawn, too?

    @UweKeim How would that work? The Gravatar doesn't depend on the URL (rather on the email address used for it), does it?

  • @Bart This was just some wild guessing

  • I can see your gravatar just fine. What you see when browsing directly to it? Jan 31, 2013 at 8:38
  • I have changed it to my photo ut it doesn't work? It still shows default one.. Jan 31, 2013 at 8:44
  • Have you logged into Gravatar to make it use the uploaded photo? Are you using the same email address there as the one registered here?

Got it solved by Stackoverflow itself..!! Actually, Stackoverflow has the option to upload the profile pic at the same place only and also to Gravatar. I selected the prior one.
