No, that's my old Avatar. I still can't change to a new Avatar.
(or perhaps you meant that I figured out that nobody cares)

I see a change from "Grumpy..." to the Ukrainian Flag.

What are you expecting to see a change to?

Try doing a full page refresh/reload? (Usually ctl-shift-R)

Beware the local cache for your browser holding onto old data!


Keep searchin',

The same thing happened with the Chrome browser, under Windows 7.

Simply refreshing the page showed your new post, but with the old avatar. Ctrl+Shift+R showed the new avatar as well.

Odd. I am using Chrome on WIn 7 as well and the Ukrainian flag was showing right from the birth of this particular thread.

I'm on Firefox. When Sten first posted about the problem, I too
only saw the original Avatar of "Grumpy..." When he Posted, again,
yesterday I saw the Ukrainian Flag.

So, until yesterday, I too, thought that something 'wonky' had
happened with the Forum Server which controls the Avatar
selection by the User. So, the 'persistent cache' issue was
on my end as well as Sten's.

I remember, quite awhile back, that this came up before. Then,
instead of "Ctrl+Shift+R", I thought it was something like "F5"
to 'Refresh' the Browser. (Which even back then, whenever
it was, I was on Firefox.) Does "F5" still work for this? I'm now
on MacOS on my Hackintosh and on two separate Mac Pro
systems. So, "Ctrl+Shift+R" WON'T work for me.

F5 is just reload, Ctrl+F5 is refresh. At least in Windows.

F5 is just reload, Ctrl+F5 is refresh. At least in Windows.

Doing a search on the Web shows that for MacOS, just 'drop' the "Ctrl"...
That is, for 'Ctrl+Shift+R', instead is just 'Shift+R'. So, instead of 'Ctrl+F5',
it 'should' be just "F5" for MacOS.

Someone with more Mac knowledge than I will have to confirm this;
however.

[EDIT:]

DON'T hit "F5" with StarCraft:Remastered running, though....
"F5" in StarCraft:Remastered toggles between Standard Definition
Graphics and High Definition Graphics.

I see the old Avatar, with Ukraine flag, and sharp and clear this time.
Your cache is too persistent if you can't see your new Avatar.
Clear your cache totally, if a refresh with CTRL+Shift+R (all together) does not work.
Since I do not know what browser you're using it may be other combinations for a total refresh.
I can't post a screenshot, I have no place to upload images.
+1

Cheers.
