This question is an exact duplicate of:

When I changed my avatar on Physics a few days ago, it briefly displayed at the top, then after a few minutes disappeared from the toolbar.

enter image description here

Later it disappeared from my questions and profile as well. Further inspection revealed that it was hidden behind an HTTP 403 forbidden result with a CAPTCHA, courtesy CloudFlare. Answering the CAPTCHA restores functionality, for now.

This is the same problem as CAPTCHAs are intermittently blocking CDN content. Randomly knocking out resources is unacceptable for a CDN. Please address this.

  • I've been having weird rendering issues like this all day. How did you check to see if it's behind a 403? Is that easily accessible from chrome dev console? – Aza Mar 16 '14 at 4:14
  • @Emracool Just open the browser's traffic monitor and reload the page. – Potatoswatter Mar 16 '14 at 4:17
  • I'm going to advise you change the title on the other post and I can start a bounty on it. I'm getting the same problem. But, as it stands, this is a duplicate. – Aza Mar 16 '14 at 5:39
  • @Emracool I already put a bounty on the other one. I don't know why it's not mentioned on the page, but it cost me 500 rep last December 19. This problem has been known for years. Something else is needed to motivate the admins. – Potatoswatter Mar 16 '14 at 5:48
  • I'll post a bounty on that one if you change the title - but this is still a duplicate. – Aza Mar 16 '14 at 5:57
