For me, the election pages on all the sites currently look something like this:

screenshot of election page with broken images instead of user flair

Examples: Stack Overflow, Law.SE, Super User

And my Stack Overflow profile flair page looks like this (note that there should be five flair images, but four are replaced with their alt text): screenshot of profile flair page with alt text instead of user flair

Most people appear unable to reproduce this, but at least one other person has confirmed in the comments that they can also reproduce it. This resembles a previous issue (marked ) in which 1 in 9 users would see similar errors.

Could this be fixed?

    They all look fine to me. Try to disable extensions/userscripts. – 41686d6564 Jun 23 at 8:13

    It's reliably reproducing for me across multiple browsers and computers, including without extensions. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:15

    @RyanM As with the other 2 commenters, all 3 linked pages display properly for me as well. – John Omielan Jun 23 at 8:15

    @RyanM I would next check network/VPN. – 41686d6564 Jun 23 at 8:16
  • The issue that I'm seeing is that the images are linked with the wrong URL: stackoverflow.com/users/flair/366904.png instead of stackexchange.com/users/flair/366904.png, for instance. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:16
  • @RyanM can you also reproduce on a mobile device on a cellular signal? – Luuklag Jun 23 at 8:16

    @RyanM your first linked image works, the second does not. – Luuklag Jun 23 at 8:17
  • On mobile: If I load the page for the first time on cellular, it works, even after switching to Wi-Fi. If I load the page for the first time on Wi-Fi, it breaks, even after switching to cellular. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:19

    @RyanM when you browse directly to such a URL (of a broken image) what you see? You get some Internal Server Error? If so, try to load elections page while logged out, or Incognito mode, and see if it loads fine. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Jun 23 at 8:23
  • @ShadowTheVaccinatedWizard I get a 500 Internal Server Error when I browse directly to the image URL, but it works in incognito mode. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:31
  • I think a mistake on mobile testing was that I used one signed-in and one signed-out browser. It is indeed broken on a cell connection, but only when I'm logged in...and seemingly only when I start on Wi-Fi. Bizarre. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:35

    Possibly related: meta.stackexchange.com/a/323895/165261 - would explain why I can see it and seemingly no one else can. – Ryan M Jun 23 at 8:37

    For me, the images are also broken. – Emil Jeřábek Jun 23 at 8:42

    The images are broken for me as well. – Alapan Das Jun 24 at 1:27

Marking this as norepro, as it looks like the problem has resolved on its own (caching issue? errant server rebuilt?). If anyone sees this again, please let me know.

  • I'm experiencing this again - happened to glance at my profile and my flair is borked. – Mithical Jul 8 at 12:04
  • Same here: stackexchange.com/users/flair/1540386.png only gives me an Ooops. Also just spotted this now when looking at my profile. Seems to be the global one that is still broken. – Izzy Jul 15 at 19:27
