It seems to take forever for avatar pictures to update - I'm told it's something to do with the site being split over a number of servers, and it taking a while for caches on all of them to clear. Or something.

The new pic is definitely showing on your account page - I guess we just have to wait for it to replicate through to the rest of the site. Sorry 'bout that.

Just in case it helps, and I'm not sure it does, you could email me the picture at the usual address from the email account you used to sign up (just to be on the safe side) with the subject 'shooter avatar', and I'll try uploading it from this end. As I said, sometimes it seems to help.

RE: Having avatar trouble

Thanks Andrew. In no rush just wondering if it would happen, will sit tight for it to address itself.
