My Gravatar isn't showing on Stackoverflow or here on Meta. Everything checks out fine on Gravatar's site, and I'm using the same email address for all 3 accounts. So what's up?

My Gravatar is definitely G-rated so what's up?

  • Is it your DisplayName in some kind of starburst array?

It takes at least 24 hours before you will see it.

  • In my case I think this was the issue. Thanks!

They use very aggressive caching. Wait a day or two.

Alternatively if you use gmail or another provider that supports this register a new gravatar account using the email [email protected]; after that upload your avatar and change the email on stack overflow (doing it in this order is very important)

  • Ahh! I had a different mail set at stackoverflow! Thanks!
