So, I've changed my avatar, and followed the method to show the change on my end, however outside of my profile it shows my old avatar. Am i missing a command to refresh my cache in Chrome? Do other people see it?

When I clicked on this thread and looked at your avatar pic, I see this:

However, when I click on your username to view your profile, this image appears on your profile page:

Ok thanks, that's what i thought. My avatar should be the bottom pic and i'm seeing the top one on the smartbuydisc.ru. Its odd.

I'm still seeing the top pic as your avatar image, too. You said you're using Chrome? Personally, whenever I'm on ADT I am in an incognito (private) window and I always have my settings set to where no history or any other information is saved. So in the rare event when I change my avatar pic, once I've changed the pic, I will immediately sign out of ADT and then close the Chrome browser completely. When I go back to Chrome and sign in to ADT, I will see the new pic as my avatar pic. But it sounds like your issue might be something more than caches or something...when you made the avatar change, did you first delete the previous image?

You may have both just needed to clear your cookies, the avatar is displaying correctly for me.

I tried that, but i'm still seeing my old avatar, after changing and deleting it twice. I'm at a loss.

We use a content delivery network that caches images for quite some time. it could be 24 hours, maybe longer (I forget)
I haven't implemented cache purging yet for individual files when they are updated. I've been trying out different CDNs every few months. I like the one we're on right now and will likely stick with it. So I'll plan to implement cache purging and updating when users upload new avatars. I have a couple of months worth of ADT development work to do this summer.

When it comes to the avatar images for both users (Dread and Eliza22ibarra), I'm still seeing the old images in their thread posts. I don't get it...I always use Google Chrome's incognito windows when I'm on ADT, so cookies shouldn't be an issue.

EDIT: I just logged in to ADT in a Firefox private window. When looking at Eliza22ibarra's posts, I now see her new avatar image. However, when it comes to Dread's posts, I'm still seeing his old one. Okay, now I'm even more confused.

Cookies are not the issue. It's the content delivery network settings.
Avatar images are sent to your browser by the i.adultdvdtalk.com server. "i.adultdvdtalk.com" and "img1.adultdvdtalk.com" are aliases for a network of hundreds of severs around the world that store and serve copies of content from the one server that runs ADT. This distributed network is called a content delivery network. Using a CDN speeds up the loading of pages for site visitors and also lowers the load on our server. I have the CDN setup to keep their copy of an image for 1 month before fetching a new one. I'll change it to 1 day temporarily until I can implement the cache-purging code.
There's a programming mechanism available where I can have our server tell the CDN servers that an item has been updated/removed. This is called a cache-purge. It invalidates their local copy and forces their CDN servers to fetch the updated one from the ADT server. I need to add this functionality to ADT and we won't have these stale image problems.

The CDN might have a dozen servers in your geographic area that could be sending these images to your browser. Some of these servers might have the old copy and some the updated version. The CDN servers also instruct your browser to store local copies on your computer for up to 30 days. That's why you might see something different when you switch browsers.

This image is a snapshot of the bandwidth the CDN handled for us in the past 30 days. 6.4 terabytes for images and other static content. The goal with a CDN is to get the cache hit rate as high as possible which is why I had it set to store files for 30 days.
ADT's total bandwidth each month is around 20TB.

Thanks for that very detailed explanation. I actually feel bad now...that because of my incessant nagging about this very minor issue, you had to devote all that time in making those posts to explain the cause.

Thanks for the breakdown Drew. So i'm assuming the CDN i'm pulling from has my old avatar cached. It is what it is, Just seems like i need it to resolve itself.

I'm experiencing this issue right now-seeing my old avatar image even though I've deleted it and uploaded a different image. About 24 hours ago I changed my avatar image to one that has Gina Valentina in it and HARDX stamped on it. Everything was fine with that image, it started appearing as soon as I did the whole "CTRL + R" thing. However, when I came on here a couple minutes ago, I found that another ADT member had uploaded this same exact image as their avatar image. Once I saw that, I deleted my avatar image and uploaded a different pic of Gina Valentina. Despite doing the "CTRL + R" thing and logging off/back on twice, I'm still seeing the previous avatar image, not the new one. Will my new avatar image start appearing in 24 hours or is this the same issue that came up with Dread previously?

I'm having this issue, but this time it's not with a member's avatar pic, but with the avatar pic for one of our pornstar pages: the page for currently shows for me a pic of (though not the same pic as in the other page).

I see this (though I couldn't download the image, had to screenshot it):

Nicole Ray - topless.JPG

I got Flash to remove it on April 8th (not sure if he replaced it with a pic of the right girl or just deleted it) but I still see the old pic. I assume this is the same problem as described in this thread with a caching issue, but that seems like a long time for it to just be a caching issue.

Any ideas Drew?

I just changed my avatar recently, and it took forever for it to change but after doing all the steps (multiple times) it started showing up. When I click on my profile, my avatar is clean, but whenever I post, there's this annoying black line across my avatar. Will that disappear on its own too?

Now that you mention it, I too was wondering why there is a black line in the middle of your new avatar pic.

^ Looks like grovestreet (a new user) is having the same problem too, with both his avatar and profile.

This is where things get weirder. I click on my profile, go to images, files and folders, open "quick uploads" to see all the photos I've ever posted on this site, and half the time I click on photos, the black line is in the middle, but the other half I click on photos, it's normal without the black line. Whenever I uploaded these photos on my posts for users to see the black line was never there. This black line glitch only started recently.

Edit: Holy crap! My photo is fully rendered now! I'm free!

That seems to happen to me only when I am accessing ADT on my iPad. It seems like when I'm on my iPad, not all avatar images appear. On the other hand, I'm on my PC right now and all avatar images are coming up just fine.

I've noticed that philly26 changed his avatar recently and the new one has the same thing, that black line right through the middle of it.

Thanks for letting me know. I have a good idea what's causing the problem but can't fix it for a week or two. I'm currently traveling with limited internet access.

Okay, got it. Also, there was another issue brought up here about two weeks ago:
I have to say that I do not experience this issue when I'm accessing ADT on my PC. However, when I'm accessing ADT on my iPad, I have noticed that numerous avatar images and uploaded images do not appear.

I changed my avatar a few weeks ago...first it took forever to change, then it had a black line through it and now all of a sudden its randomly gone with me doing anything. What gives!? I uploaded it again so hopefully it will work in a few days.

Update...the black line is gone and the pic is back. Idk what happened!

^I've been working on this issue for a bit yesterday and today.

We have multiple layers of static content caching in our software stack. I've got something configured incorrectly in the chain. I'm working on code that will flush cached content at all of the different layers when someone uploads a new avatar/profile image/etc.

I hope the issue has been fixed, that way I don't have to deal with it when I change my avatar image here soon. Whenever HardX decides to put up the trailer for Gianna Dior's Facialized scene, I'll be changing it.

EDIT: By the way, on a totally unrelated note...in the past week I've realized that the "Bang Head" icon does not display when I use it in a post. It's just the plain text characters that are displayed in the post.

I just went to do this, change my avatar pic to the one for Gianna's Facialized scene, and as expected, it's not showing. I was able to delete the previous image (Eliza Ibarra), but when I go to upload the new Gianna pic, even though I'm told the upload was successful, the image is not appearing.

^ This happened to me but in a different way. My image randomly disappeared so I uploaded it again and it worked and the black line was gone too. Try to upload it again and hopefully it will work.

^ It might show up in a few days, who knows. That's why I try not to change my avatar much. If it was easy to change I would do it more often.

LOL, that's the thing with me, I RARELY change my avatar image! I mean, that one I had with Eliza Ibarra had been up since December. But despite my changing my avatar image being such a rarity, there still seems to be some sort of glitch everytime I do. The difference this time is that the previous avatar image has actually disappeared; in the past, my problems were usually the previous avatar image still appearing even after I deleted it. This time, I've got no avatar image at all. I'd use that "Bang Head" icon to end this post, but as I mentioned earlier, that particular icon no longer works.

Thanks, I was able to delete that and successfully upload the Gianna Dior pic!

And look at that...with this post, I have now made 8,000 posts in my almost 6 years here on ADT!

Talk about a guy with too much time on his hands, right?
