I changed my Avatar but still see the old one

We have instituted aggressive caching of static assets like images and javagscript on the site to help improve performance. Occasionally, images change without a new file name, such as in the case of avatars.
for example, mine is /avatars/s/36/36611.jpg because 36611 is my userID. A new uploaded avatar image will over-write this path.

This can create some issues on the user side. While you may not see the new image right away, rest assured that it did upload. It is your browser that is still showing the old file because our cache rules instructed the browser to do so.

It may not show up for several hours or more. Please be patient and feel free to close out of your browser completely and re-open the page to ensure the cache is cleared. Shift + F5 can also enforce a hard reload.
