Possible Duplicates:
Force Gravatar Refresh
Why does my new gravatar image not update on stackoverflow after 24 hours?
Why isn’t my Gravatar image updating?

I got some flack for this earlier, so let me re-phrase. I added a gravatar a while ago now, and I can see the gravatar updated on sites other than stackoverflow, but not on stackoverflow. I looked around on meta, saw that other people had the same problem, tried their fixes, and still had the same problem.

I'm still having this problem. I read all the "duplicates" suggested by Downvoter, including all answers and comments. I tried the following:

  1. I logged out of gravatar.
  2. I logged out of stackoverflow.
  3. I logged out of gravatar, stackoverflow and meta
  4. I changed my email address. This updated my gravatar immediately, but only to a different (uglier) automatically generated image.
  5. I cleared my browser cache.
  6. I disabled my browser cache.
  7. I used a different computer.
  8. I used a different browser.
  9. I used a different browser on a different computer, one that I rarely use and which had never been to stack overflow, meta, gravatar, or wordpress.

As far as I can tell, every previously asked question uses some combination of the above to update the gravatar, and it still doesn't seem to be working.

  • @Downvoter: which to choose! – RSolberg Mar 10 '10 at 18:54
  • @chester, and all I had to do was click the "gravatar" tag – juan Mar 10 '10 at 18:55
  • Yeah, I did a search before to see if anyone had the same problem, and I saw those same posts. I changed my gravatar at least a month ago, and on one site it works and on the other it doesn't. This doesn't seem to fit with the other posts. Plus, I tried a lot of the things anyway, and they didn't seem to work. – James Kingsbery Mar 10 '10 at 18:57
  • Well, @James, how come none of the things mentioned in your comment are in the question itself (which still would have been closed as a duplicate, just like duplicates on SO are handled)? – Arjan Mar 10 '10 at 20:48
  • @Arjan - I updated the question to list the different things I've tried that still don't seem to work. – James Kingsbery Mar 24 '10 at 14:58
  • I think it's just better to think about it as about bug even if SO developers don't get it as bug :P – cnd Apr 27 '12 at 6:08
  • Obviously this is a bug, I also have this problems and commont soultions don't help. – Steve Yakovenko Jul 7 '12 at 11:59
