    So my profile picture was originally the one from Kingdom Pen, but I changed it to something else. I see my newer one on my profile page…

    profile

    The Guild login section…

    login

    And the forum menu…

     

    …But it stays the same on an actual forum topic!

    … Or is this all just me? Help?

    Sometimes because of caching it can take a while for the software to recognize your new profile pic. I can see your pic on this post, so I’m guessing it’s just a temporary delay that will iron itself out shortly. 🙂

    @josiah For what it’s worth, I’ve been having the same issue. I have no clue about caching and coding and other frightening website terminology, but I thought I’d mention it just the same, in case it helps you diagnose. 😛

    @scribbles Yeah, if this happens to one person, it probably happens to all… Basically the idea of caching is that your computer doesn’t reload everything every time it opens a new page but only reloads the different elements on the page and “remembers” what was on the page before. As a result, it doesn’t automatically reload every profile pic every time since that would lead to a slower site experience.

    How long does it take you and @dekreel before the changes show up?

    Oop, my new picture is up now! Thanks, @josiah, for clearing things up! So to answer your question… Maybe two or three sign-ins? I don’t know — I wasn’t paying attention. XD

    It’s still showing up as the old one for me. And all I see for @dekreel is the standard, un-customized profile pic.

    Anyway, I’m not particularly bothered about whatever is causing it, but since I saw that someone else was having the problem, I just wanted to mention it in case it was helpful to know. 🙂
