how-to block ads
Depending on how many moderators are online at any given time, it may take a while for your avatar to be approved. The majority are approved within an hour of uploading, usually much faster. Once approved, avatars are mirrored or uploaded to other Broadband Reports servers.
Sometimes it may be necessary to clear or flush your browser's cache to see the new avatar. Your browser's cache can contain copies of web pages, so you may be viewing that old copy of the page and the avatar. One option to force a reload of the web page is to perform a "Shift+Refresh" - hold down the SHIFT key and click on the REFRESH or RELOAD button on your browser's screen. If you use Internet Explorer, you can also perform a "CTRL+F5" - hold down the CTRL key and push the F5 button.
From now on when avatars are approved or denied, you will get an instant message from 'system'. So no more wondering.
Nonetheless, please allow plenty of time for the avatar files to be mirrored or uploaded to the other Broadband Reports servers before asking where your avatar is.
