How to change avatar image?



In the Settings page, there doesn’t appear to be a way to change the avatar image for the forum. I think this didn’t use to be the case. Is there something I missed?

Change of profile picture
Avatar image doesn't seem to update
Kind of hate the whole Gravatar Avatar thing

I never asked that question, because I thought, dude, you cannot be that blind… And then I accidentally figured out it has to be done here:


Haha, ikr :slight_smile: Thanks!


I guess it has to propagate first… I changed it, but still have the old.

I think you need to log out of discourse, then log back in. This is not factual knowledge though… (:


Anecdotally, you are right :slight_smile:

Maybe we could be bold, and state my guess now has empirical evidence…


It sounds like there are 2 data points for (3 if you count my second edit), and 0 against, so ship it!


It is necessary to change an avatar again… I have changed, I left the account - the avatar wasn’t updated. What to do?


I need very to replace an avatar!


Did you try the link above? Go to Personal Info.

Hmm, I just tried it, logged out and in both on that site, and also here, and the image didn’t change here.

maybe some cache hanging aroumd? I see you have some sort of shaded sphere now?


Hand-drawn, yeah.


I tried many ways - nothing works!
