Why won't my Fluther photo change?

Asked by AshLeigh (14898 points ) January 19th, 2013 from iPhone

I am trying to change my photo from my iPhone, but every time I try it makes a copy of my current picture instead.
After asking a mod about it I tried deleting my current icon but that didn’t work.
Any ideas?
I don’t have access to a computer, which is why I’m doing it from my mobile. I have changed it before from my phone, so I don’t think that’s the problem.

I get it when I use two different images with the same name.

Thanks!

@AshLeigh Can you see your three pics on your phone?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

If you go to my account, then to change your picture what do you see? Do you get a choice of three pictures?

dxs's avatar

It shows up as a picture of you kissing your cat on your profile, but a picture of you with glasses angled a bit to the right on your small icon.
[addition]: That is a really adorable cat.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Hey your pic just changed.

AshLeigh's avatar

I still see me with glasses.

AshLeigh's avatar

I see the one I’ve had for a while now three times…

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I see the one with you in black, with a guitar? on your lap. It’s not the same as your avatar.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

You delete the new one from Fluther. Change its name at your source to something you have never used before. Upload to Fluther.

AshLeigh's avatar

Sooo weird.

DrBill's avatar

Maybe the flutherbot likes your current picture…

chyna's avatar

It is weird. The pic on your avatar on questions is the one with you in glasses. When I click on your name, it is a different picture.

AshLeigh's avatar

I still only see the one of me with glasses… I tried what @Imadethisupwithnoforethought said.

AshLeigh's avatar

I broke Fluther!

hearkat's avatar

Yup… you broked it reeeeeeaaaal good.

I see you with a kitten on your profile page, but your avatar is you with your glasses.

AshLeigh's avatar

Everyone sees something different. >.<

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

Are they seeing a ukelele and thinking it is a cat?

hearkat's avatar

I am completely sober, and I do know the difference between a kitten (orange and white, with AshLeigh’s chin on its head) and a ukulele (and I even know how to spell ukulele).

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@hearkat Ok, I am drunk, but I am seeing a black and white photo with a ukelele made up to look like a cat.

AshLeigh's avatar

It’s supposed to be the Ukulele one. I still see the old one.
And I’m kissing the kitten, not with my chin on his head :)

Bellatrix's avatar

I see you with your glasses in the little pic and with a ukulele in your profile. Weird. Nice pic though!

AshLeigh's avatar

Thanks xD

hearkat's avatar

I closed my browser and rebooted my device, and I still see a kitten. My fiancé sees the ukulele pic on his device. Bizarre.

AshLeigh's avatar

Sooo weird. O.o

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I see the one of you wielding a machete and just looking generally intimidating.

AshLeigh's avatar

Lmao. I love you!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Ditto, darlin’.

Symbeline's avatar

Wow, what the hell? On the questions, I see you with glasses, but it’s a different picture if I check on your profile.

Cool, you broke everything! :D

sesrly though, watf? Hope you figure this out, how weird :/

mazingerz88's avatar

It’s your hair in the new photo. It’s haunted. Uh-oh. Seriously, it looks nice. : )

Buttonstc's avatar

I have never been able to change my avatar from my iPhone.

I just assumed it was a limitation of the system.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Buttonstc, I have always been able to if I switch the the desktop version of the site. (At the bottom of the page)

Buttonstc's avatar

Well I just switched to desktop and tried to without any luck.

When I click on the first field to choose the pic from my camera roll, it does not respond no matter how hard or how many times I try to click on it, it does nothing at all.

AshLeigh's avatar

That’s weird, it has always worked for me. Until now

augustlan's avatar

Okay, you have definitely broken Fluther. BAD GIRL!

Actually, this has happened before, with an old member…she broke it twice, both times it was an avatar problem. I have no idea how we fixed it, but I’ll let Ben know and hopefully he’ll come to the rescue. :)

blueiiznh's avatar

You can’t make it change. It has to want to change.

glacial's avatar

@AshLeigh I think @augustlan just called you old!

AshLeigh's avatar

Thanks Auggie :)

ucme's avatar

Indecent exposure?

PhiNotPi's avatar

It has to be a bug that involves the way that Fluther uses Cloudfront to store avatars.

Symbeline's avatar

It’s still fucking up. but I like both

AshLeigh's avatar

Still doing it xD

Symbeline's avatar

It is. Ucme has problems with that too. I don’t think we ever figured that one out…

AshLeigh's avatar

Mine has been changing at random.

Symbeline's avatar

You mean, you didn’t even do anything? Wow, this is a part of the problem I wasn’t even aware of…it’s worse than I thought.

I wonder why it happens to some jellies, but not others.

AshLeigh's avatar

It has been doing it lately. Haha

ucme's avatar

I get the same explanation each time, it’s an avatar glitch when using a mobile device.
It hates my iPad :(

Symbeline's avatar

Aaaah right, the mobile device thing. Right. I just have my PC so that explains why I’m not cursed like u gaiz. :p

ucme's avatar

Haha, I remember my curse of the voodoo guy in the black mask, that pic haunted my profile for weeks.
