Avatar logic is unreliable/inconsistent

http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/forum/1965/riots-london  = old avatar (Breakdancer doing a windmill)

http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/users/lilbromarky1 = new avatar (Rumsfield from the movie "The Burbs" with Tom Hanks

^^^ At the same time!

Also having trouble when deleting the old avatar under my account > Edit Button

The old image never disappears even if you do the delete work flow and upload a new one.  This is all in Internet Explorer 8 and should be easily recreatable if you simply upload an avatar, then switch to a different avatar you'll see the same behavior.  Let me know how I can help if you need more details.  Thanks and love the site

P.S.  Dont forget to add a drop down that allows users to for example, switch from Silver forum to Gold forum, at the bottom of every list of threads.  Every forum I've ever used had this function and it makes it easy as pie to navigate between forums!

Mark, we appreciate the

Mark, we appreciate the feedback.  The issue is not that the avatar logic is "inconsistent", it has to do with your personal browser.  Your computer's browser stores a local cache which includes common images often loaded, including your avatar.

If you do not perform a hard refresh on your browser or clear out your browser cache, you will most likely see your old avatar for a period of time.  Also just because you are seeing the old avatar doesn't mean that others are too.  For example, I see your updated avatar just fine with no problems in both locations.

As for the PS, it's already on our list of potential future enhancements.  If you'd like to see some of these enhancements happen more quickly, I'd recommend clicking the "Donate" button in the upper right corner and providing Turd with incentive to focus on them.

Thanks.

If the admins ever need help

If the admins ever need help testing changes before they go live let me know I'd be glad to help.  It may not be possible or needed, but if it is I can offer some of my time to help out.

Thanks Mark.  I'd recommend giving Chrome a try, I like it a lot and it's speedy.

As for the forum drop down, I want to make sure I'm clear that it is "on the list" of potential future enhancements... does not mean that it is in progress.
