    Changed my avatar yesterday. It shows up as my avatar at the top of the screen (next to the Mail and Flag icons), and sometimes other places, but when I bring up my settings, I still see my old avatar. Also, my posts sometimes show my new one, sometimes old.

    No matter how many times I go into the avatar settings to try to fix it, I can't seem to fully change my avatar.

    Is this a known issue? Any workaround?

    we are caching the avatars, so it may take some time for the cache to kick in. I just purged all the files, so let me know if that fixed it.

    Looks good!

    I can live with caching, I just wanted to make sure things weren't broken.

    Left to its own devices, how long would it take to refresh?

    it was at 1 month. I've reduced it to 1 day.
