For some reason, the Area 51 gravatars are just displaying as an error.

Example A:

Committers to Area 51 proposal

Here we can see that for every single user the avatars are incorrect.

Example B: My profile on Area 51 vs my profile on Puzzling (another Stack Exchange site)

Area51 profile

...and the Puzzling avatar...

Puzzling profile avatar

I don't know whether this is a bug on just my machine or globally for everyone, but it seems to be localized to Area 51. (I used Google Chrome on Windows 10 when encountering this error.)

  • Firefox Nightly 96.0a1, and latest stable Chromium: no repro. Ctrl+F5 the page, or look into the Network tab of your browser’s dev tools to look for network errors. Commented Dec 8, 2021 at 1:36

    No repro on Chrome OS 93.0.4577.95 either. Area 51 gets thumbnails from gravatar.com instead of i.stack.imgur.com for you, so maybe your network is dropping requests to Gravatar?
