This question already has an answer here:

One of the more active users on one of my sites has an issue with his user-picture. Namely, it keeps changing on us, and it's really annoying.

I've asked him about it, and asked him if he'd changed his email recently, and his response was

@Shokhet I have no idea! I thought i noticed something funny going on with the pics. You didn't believe me when I told you technology and i don't get along, did you? Now you believe me?

Can we please get this fixed? It's really annoying, as I use those profile pictures to help me quickly identify who posted what, and 6591 is one of the really good guys.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


He doesn't have an email address on his profile, nor has he uploaded an image to use as an avatar. Therefore, his image is generated based on the IP address he was last seen from. When that changes, so does his picture...

  • I let him know about your answer, thanks! // Just curious, why is this post CW? – Shokhet Feb 5 '15 at 3:45
  • @Shokhet Guess because he essentially posted same answer as in the dupe. (note the time of making it CW - right after closing as dupe) – Shadow Feb 5 '15 at 12:43
  • @ShadowWizard Oh, I see....I thought the answer was CW to begin with. Interesting.... – Shokhet Feb 5 '15 at 16:15
  • @Shokhet it's visible in the revisions, most likely Shog posted the answer and only then found the dupe. – Shadow Feb 5 '15 at 16:17
  • I see, @ShadowWizard. I checked the revisions before responding to you ;-) ....I was actually wondering why post an answer to a duplicate question; your theory explains that also :) – Shokhet Feb 5 '15 at 16:19
