This is the first time I've tried to play with the flair, seems to be working well for Stack Overflow, but I think the image may be down for the combined Stack Exchange version. It looks like I'm just getting the alternate text.

Am I doing something wrong here? Is anyone else having this problem at the moment? Am I the only one who is seeing the second flair below incorrectly?

Just to check to see if I'm seeing something different here:

In Chrome:

In Firefox:

I tried to look at the image directly and got the "Oops! Something Bad Happened!" page

Update: as of today 8/24/2013 the problem is no longer occurring. To who ever fixed it, thank you.

  • It works for me using latest Chrome.

  • I See it, too. (I'm assuming your flair in the post above is the 'actual' flair itself?) Aug 21, 2013 at 19:11
  • @AndrewBarber checked in Firefox v23, and Chrome v28, I can see the SO version, but not the SE version. What gives?

  • What do you get if you load the flair directly? And can you use something like Fiddler to see what the response is? stackexchange.com/users/flair/2203510.png Aug 21, 2013 at 19:14
  • @AndrewBarber I clicked the link you provided and got the "oops something bad happened" page

  • Oh, now that's interesting. So you got an error page from the Stack Exchange site, then. Aug 21, 2013 at 19:17
  • @AndrewBarber yup

  • Gotcha. I would add that info to the question, too. Makes it more clear it's a server-side issue. Aug 21, 2013 at 19:21
  • @AndrewBarber so just to be clear can you see both flairs in the question?

  • Yup; I see your Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange flair both. I even just tried loading it with junk query string data to make sure. Aug 21, 2013 at 19:25
  • I'm seeing both fine here too.

  • @Undo it's still broken on my end, I tried all the usual suspects, but no luck

    @Undo nope... cleared the cache, tried different browsers, tried the image directly... The error page seems to suggest it's a back-end problem, but it doesn't make sense that I would be the only one effected
