I just noticed that badge icons for my chat profile don't show up anymore:

Badges in chat profile

Unihedro could not repro, but Fundamental could.

Is this a bug, or is it just us?

I'm using Firefox 35.0 on Windows 7.

Note, this is also impacting oneboxing of profiles in chat too:

enter image description here


Chat uses Stack Overflow's sprite sheet for the badge images, and the Stack Overflow design refresh moved a few things around in that image file; those changes weren't reflected in the chat CSS yet.

Fixed now.

As to the the question of why it worked for some people and not for others: that may have depended on what CDN edge node you're hitting and how hard you refreshed, so it's not unexpected that it looked different for different people.


As mentioned, I could not reproduce this. Here were the sprites in the CSS class that holds the badges:


Upon refreshing the stylesheet per Fundamental's advice, it now broke for me too.

  • This is not the sprites file that I see used on that page. – user259867 Jan 25 '15 at 8:07
  • @Fundamental Weird, by clicking into your link, I see an exact same version as that in my console. Maybe... It's caching! – Unihedron Jan 25 '15 at 8:09
  • What if you click my link and refresh? – user259867 Jan 25 '15 at 8:09
  • @Fundamental ... Now it broke. – Unihedron Jan 25 '15 at 8:10
