Avatar summary in topic list takes a long time to update


(Gerhard Schlager) #1

I just noticed that @eviltrout’s avatar is missing in the topic list for some (closed?) topics:

should be

I do not see that, I see

Perhaps a refresh / timing issue?

Yeah, seems to work now. But there was a delay of at least 2 hours which is kinda odd.

When retrieving a topic via the API, Im seeing that the normal letter_avatar/userName/45/3.png url is empty. I just recently updated to 1.30. This was working in 1.2x.

In the web client I see a bunch of numbers added to the avatar filenames like /letter_avatar/userName/45/3_90a587a04512ff220ac26ec1465844c5.png

How should I go about getting the proper avatar within a topic?


(Jeff Atwood) #5

Yes, @eviltrout is working on that next week. Completely unrelated to this topic, though.

Also @watchmanmonitor this is your dupe topic.


(cpk) #6

Agreed, unrelated. @codinghorror Thanks for the update.

This is still happening:

It should show 3 avatars:


This topic should show 2 avatars and highlight the OP, but it doesn’t:


(Jeff Atwood) #8

Yep this has been happening for a long time, I noticed it again the other day. Has basically been a problem since the inception of the project cc @eviltrout

Here’s another one… It’s been 7h since your post and your avatar is still not visible in the topic list!



Edit: Another reply has been posted to that topic while I was writing this. The avatars are OK now.
