I'm not sure if this is the sort of thing to ask here, but, about 5 hours ago, I changed my Gravatar. I've tried clearing my cache, logging out, and back in, and it still hasn't changed. Does anyone know if there's a specific amount of time before the changes are seen? Or is something wrong?

    Did you associate the gravatar change with the right email that you're using for your account here? There is usually a bit of a delay but only about five minutes, never five hours as far as I'm aware.

The site hotlinks Gravatar, so there's not really much you or we can do about it. :(

Yes, it takes frustratingly long, but eventually it'll get through. Give it a couple more hours. :)

  • Alright, hopefully it'll go through eventually. Cuz I'm tired of looking at the little blue square thing.
