I display my combined flair on my profile page. But I noticed that it's broken. When I go to profile setting -> flair I see that all my flairs work other than the combined flair.

Here is my combined flair:

  1. Meta flair setting page.

enter image description here

  1. Stack Overflow flair setting page.

enter image description here

My current profile:

enter image description here

When I visit the image page directly for the combined flair, it gives an error:

enter image description here

If it matters:

Browser: Chrome Version 92.0.4515.107 (Official Build) (64-bit)


Mine also is not working it seems. I noticed yesterday on my Arqade profile that it was not rendering (fixed now with my band-aid fix mentioned below).

I did notice just now however that if I take the link and upload it as you would when posting images on a post, it seems to pull it down just fine.

My flair's .png link "https://stackexchange.com/users/flair/8729580.png" does not render an image, but after uploading it via link it does:

enter image description here

Of course, it doesn't properly navigate you to my SE user profile since the link behind the image is for the image itself.

peterh's .png link does not work for me either, but again, uploading it does.

enter image description here

To top it all off, Luuklag's .png like works for me.

So a (temporary?) fix for this would be to take your .png's link and upload it to i.stack.imgur and then change your flair img src

<a href="https://stackexchange.com/users/8729580/timothy-g">
<img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/M02q6.png" width="208" height="58" alt="profile for Timothy G. on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&amp;A sites" title="profile for Timothy G. on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&amp;A sites" />

I think though the only drawback to this is the image won't get updated as your reputation changes.

    You can do this in Markdown too, if you prefer: [![Profile for Timothy G. on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites](https://i.stack.imgur.com/M02q6.png)](https://stackexchange.com/users/8729580/timothy-g "Profile for Timothy G. on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites"). You can add title/ hover text to any image by adding quoted text after the URL ([alt text](link "title text")).

  • I'm currently having this same issue (since yesterday?), however, trying to "upload" the image link does not work for me. I just get "Failed to upload image; an error occured[sic] on the server". Requesting this image results in a 500 response.

    @Shree it's not you, or your PC, or your browser - something is broken on SE side. Aug 3 '21 at 13:17

    @ShadowWizardWearingMaskV2 works for me across computers/phones and across browsers. Probably a location specific CDN issue again then?

  • @Luuklag yup, most likely. Aug 3 '21 at 13:31

I didn't understand from the descriptions in this thread, when I first read it, that the flair not rendering could also happen in the body of posts. But now it happened to me that on the same page half the flairs render and the other half doesn't. Screenshot take from The Community Teams @ Stack Exchange and how we work together.

Using Windows 10, Firefox 94.0.1 (64-bit), 1920x1080, rev 2021.11.16.40766.

  • Strange indeed. For me they all show up in the post. Are there any errors in your console?

  • @Luuklag yes it gives the same 500 errors already mentioned in the other answer and comments for the individual flair URLs that aren't working.

    Here is how that link looks for me. A few are broken images.

Mine does not work. Here is a direct link to it.

Possibly it is generated on request, and it is cached (both in the server and in the browsers). Until it does not expire from both caches, it seems working. The flair of the other answerer (@Luuklag) is working.

Extension: it gives 500 to my Firefox, but it works well with a wget.

Extension #2: by replicating the 'Cookie:' header of my Firefox to the wget, it gives 500. Very likely it does not work only with a working login. It also works from a private browser window.

  • @Luuklag Funny. To me it gives 500 to my firefox, but I still can download it with a wget.
