View Full Version : HEY! Whre's my new Avatar and Sig pic?!? It's the OLD one!

I changed my sig pic last week, and added an avatar pic

Now, sometimes when I log in, it will be the pic I used to have, of an airplane, and sometimes it will be the piece of album art from "Combat Rock" I changed the sig pic to last week. Sometimes my avatar pic will be here, sometimes it won't

What is up with that?

Somebody mentioned that Ubi might use a cache for that stuff...well, I'm terribly confused because regardless of the cache, my profile contains paths to the URLs that i have these pics stored in, and the forum software should just follow the path!

Anyone else have this happen?

I just checked my profile...and the link to my new sig pic was gone. In it's place was the OLD path to the OLD pic

I just changed it again...and the new sig is still not here...the old one is- even after I deleted the old pic completely from the website that hosts my pics! I also put my avatar pic back...and it's gone, although I succesfully submitted both not two minutes ago, when I editted my profile.

I dont get how your old one shows up even after you deleted it from where you were hosting it. Its teh interweb gnomes doing this, be sure. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I see your new image now. Strange.

I had the same problem when I changed my profile, it lasted about 4 days. I think UBI has one or more servers that are not synchronizing with each other and your old profile may be cached somewhere.

It's because the Ubi forums cache your profile information and use the cached information when displaying your signature on the forums.
