I'm trying to upload an avatar that is 5KB in size, 100x100. However, whenever I upload it, my avatar doesn't change from the old.

I've even tried Remove Avatar, then uploading the new av, but the previous one still comes back!

Help?

Apologies, everything is fine. I thought I had Mozilla set to always compare the cache against files-to-be-downloaded, but it wasn't.

My cache simply kept the old one around, while everyone else was seeing the new. =p

Feel free to close.

I've had this problem, too. I've asked a mod one time to delete an old on for me, but since I like changing every now and then, and the mods have better things to do than delete my old avatars, what I do is: remove it, close my browser (logging off of HA), come back a little later, hit "remove avatar" again just for good measure, and then upload my new one. That's worked everytime for me so far. (Also you have to specify the actual image dimensions in the fields provided, or it will "stretch" it to 100x100 if it was originally smaller.)

It may be a browser or cache thing that's doing it, but I haven't isolated the cause. Anyway, the workaround I use is easy enough.
