      I don’t know for sure, but the first suspect would be some sort of ad blocker.

      PhotM,

      I don’t know where it goes, but I don’t have that problem. Mine is always there after I log in.Β  Maybe you could try, like me, to not stay logged in. When I leave this site, and other blogs also, I always log out before leaving. When I log in again, everything looks to be fine.

      Perhaps all 3rd party cookies are blocked in your browser?

      My preferred settings are for 3rd party cookies to be blocked – unless visited.

      • #98211

        My setting is accept third party cookies – always. Sometimes my avatar disappears in the Dashboard (but not on the site). Who knows?

      • #98289

        That’s the Apple hack to satisfy the advertisers at the same time with maintaining a certain amount of privacy. I didn’t find that configuration particularly useful and I think completely disabling third-party cookies is safe to use, except for one or only few instances on the whole of internet.

      @ PhotM

      It used to be there–up until roughly a week or so ago. Noticed that it was missing ….

      Any idea what changed on your system on or about the time it stopped showing?

      New program(s) installed, new updates installed, new settings for various things, ….. what ever?

      You could try removing it, and then re-installing it … at the gravatar site.

    • #98419

      First off I have uBlock Origin in conjunction with some DNS screening on OpenDNS.

      Having said this, Gravatar picked up my Avatar from Gmail. I have never put it there.
      They are Green lite in uBlock. If it was DNS, it would always be gone everywhere.
      It is always on my Profile and in “Recent Replies”.

      This start during Phase 2. If I remember correctly it was fine after the crash…

      3 rd party cookies are on….

      OKAY Y’all,

      :sherlock: went to work this morning and ferreted out the PROBLEM…

      Look at these links and then the corresponding Images, they are reveling:

      This is my Profile ICON: “https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/2820038eacc5a805e0522615ca8edd07?s=150&d=mm&r=g”

      PhotM

      This is my ICON Before it disappears: “https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/2820038eacc5a805e0522615ca8edd07?s=40&d=mm&r=g”

      PhotM

      This is my ICON After it disappears: “https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/2820038eacc5a805e0522615ca8edd07?s=80&d=mm&r=g”

      PhotM

      This is my ICON when I Replace the ‘?s=80&d=mm&r=g’ from the After one with the Before one ‘?s=40&d=mm&r=g’: “https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/2820038eacc5a805e0522615ca8edd07?s=40&d=mm&r=g”

      PhotM

      As you should be able to see, the Size of ’40’ changes to ’80’ when it Disappears.

      In conclusion, something needs to make a Size ’80’ ICON and put it at the site/page address OR the Dev’s have a coding problem that is not consistently the correct size of ’40’????

      It is not that this is that important but COD/OCD kicks in because it BUGS me on two pionts:

      1. The blame game, OH! I don’t have that problem, so it must be your fault(often implied)….. πŸ™
      2. It happens and I have done nothing to cause it that I know of. All suggestions are fruitless therefore it is my fault and therefore my problem(situational implication).

      I am not pointing figures at ANYBODY with those statements, I TOO, HAVE FALLEN INTO THE EASY OUT TRAP IN THE PAST…. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

      It really bugs me when I do, as much as it does when it happens to me. So I really do respect you all. I don’t know what the actual solution is because it is OUT of my control and therefore out of my hands!

      @ PhotM

      Having said this, Gravatar picked up my Avatar from Gmail.

      Are you saying you do not have a Gravatar account?

      When I set up my site icon, I had to create a Gravatar account. And, I was forced to create a icon that met their specific size parameters.

      Did you have to make the icon the size they required–or did it somehow *come from Gmail*?

      It’s curios that the Gravatar request for your icon changes depending on what part of the website you are on–and, that’s not happening to everyone else in a similar pattern.

      More sleuthing needs to be done ….

      • #98662

        I looked at Gravatar some time ago, saw how they operate and I want nothing to do with them. I have had an ICON from when I sighed up/in here. Woody’s site just took things in hand. I assume that it got my ICON from Gmail but I use the same one everywhere. The ICON was displaying fine everywhere until recently.

        The only thing that I can relate this to is Phase 2 on this site.

        I will never sign up with or willingly signin to Gravatar. I despise unnecessary restriction, and they are full of them. I want nothing to do with them.

        It would appear, though I don’t know for sure, I am not alone with these sentiments in some form. I know there are others here that use there ICON, which is usually quite unique, like a “trademark” everywhere too, same as I do.

        I hope that this thoroughly answers you questions….. πŸ˜€

        “No question is stupid … but, possibly the answers are”

        I Hope this was not to stupid an answer for you, BUT that is my answer AND I am sticking to it… πŸ˜† πŸ˜€

      ……

      More sleuthing needs to be done ….

      OKAY NightOwl,

      :Sherlock: got out once again and more sleuthing was indeed done….. πŸ˜†

      I was watching a couple of threads yesterday, where you and Woody was expanding my understanding of how the sites are connected here. Also, how Garvatar.com is also ‘different’….

      I have had a WordPress account since 2009, Garvatar may not even have existed then. If they did WordPress didn’t own them. I visited Garvatar once before today, I never set up an account but they were god awful. One could only have an avatar that they created for you, no custom ICON pictures at all!!! I vowed I would never go back and I haven’t until today. I went to my WordPress account(I have never set up a site there, yet), the last time was for setting up 2 factor. Now I know that is where this site got my ICON, but when WordPress took over/moved over to the Garvatar site, did everything get created right for me? I do not know yet. If push comes to shove, I will upload my ICON, For the First time to Garvatar and see if that helps find Size 50 ICON.

      It was not my intention to miss lead and as I say often “everything temporary that is the Internet” however, I know that most everything that has been removed on the Internet can be found somewhere else entirely on the Internet…. πŸ˜†
      I am glad Garvatar is different than I remember it(long term memory is pretty good)

      I will keep you posted…

      UPDATE I have checked around on different Posts and it appears so far, my visitations have cleared the problem. I will give it a day, if that remains the case I will mark the post “Solved”, Monday πŸ™‚ .

      Thank Y’all for your patience with me, it is appreciated! πŸ˜€
