User profile issues?

I’ve been noticing some weird issues lately and I’ve heard I’m not the only one.
Clicking on user avatars usually gives a pop-up with info, msg button etc. Some profiles don’t have this anymore and their avatar has been replaced by a placeholder.

I’ve had it with SmokyBlue yesterday too, although today her avatar is back but still no pop-up.
I’ve tried different browsers too. Not sure if it’s me or something up with the site. For most people, everything looks still A-OK on my side though.

It’s weird…

You (your avatar) was “patient zero” a few days ago. “Avatar Blob” phenomenon receded later that very day.

I just tipped @SmokyBlue off to this on her account today. I see @Pro_Vapes is also affected, and is still borked. I just PM’d Smoky and she’s back online, and @daath had to fix something. Maybe he can chime into what is going on, and WE, can start making a list, and keep an eye out like @anon28032772 did regarding PV.

Edit – Now that I’ve posted, I see that @Pro_Vapes and @SmokyBlue are still in limbo ?

Her avatar was back just now and it’s gone again… maybe Lars is checking what’s going on or the server is tripping.

Perhaps it convinced itself that FDA has now deemed it to be a “tobacco product” (by association) ? … :thinking:

I sent this thread to Lars… maybe he is still adjusting… I even logged out and back in… at least I can still post. If you need me bad, guess if you have a fb account… drop a pm there?

I’ve tried to communicate this to the discourse devs - hopefully we can get to the bottom of this!

There are other ways of sending msgs


No facebook, but thanks :slight_smile:

When I mentioned this the other day, I may not have mentioned that my most recent avatar updating (may, possibly) have required a full “cookie” and/or “cache” wash to complete. Tried that as well ?

While we’re waiting for discourse devs … feel free to elaborate :slight_smile:

My guess it’s a software bug on the server. Smokey’s behavior shouldn’t have an effect on other accounts.

Right. But there (might) happen to be something (somehow) shared in terms of intial causation. Dunno. When I last updated my avatar, IIRC it did not reflect on the main forum thread-listing web-page (although it readily displayed the new avatar on my profile web-page). It was either: logout/login; and/or cookies; and/or perhaps cache cleaning that seems to resolve matters.

@Raven-Knightly I cleared cache, only thing I haven’t done is reboot and yeah naw…

Atm it is…a coffee cake :stuck_out_tongue: yummmers!!!
but still tinkering with it… tempted to flood it with caramel maybe… or frost it…

I get what you’re saying, but I can almost guarantee that Pro_Vapes hasn’t been doing similar things recently.

I haven’t changed my avatar since I set this first one up… no changes on my part… I can see my avatar… and its happened to Pro Vape too… so at least I am not the only one… for now.
