Today I found this bug (or Jon Skeet changed his avatar ;) ).

When loading the list of users in the iOS app the images shown next to the users are different then expected. This in an example from meta.

A possible cause can be the slow internet connection.

Faulting avatars

And another one for Martijn Pieters:

  • I can't reproduce this, but I don't have a slow connection either. Commented Apr 9, 2014 at 14:50
  • So, what avatar did I get? Scroll down another 3 names or so... :-) Commented Apr 9, 2014 at 14:52
  • What kind of bug is this! I was counting on Jeff's! :-P Commented Apr 9, 2014 at 14:55
  • Got it! Don't you look pretty now? Commented Apr 9, 2014 at 15:01
  • I just reproduced this while going through a tunnel. After a second or two, the icons updated. Seems like there are cached icons from a different listing (different site maybe?) that are shown before the correct one is downloaded. Sorry @Martijn, you still had your own for me too.

  • I think I can reproduce this with some fast scrolling; the avatars flash from a wrong one to the correct one in a fraction of a second. Most likely the iOS widget doesn't use placeholders but previously loaded images while loading the actual images over the network. Commented Apr 9, 2014 at 15:07

You are indeed correct: looking at the user listing on a very slow connection was causing this issue to show.

Will be fixed on 0.1.47.
