Why did our avatars change?

AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,649
It appears those of us with “default” avatars that were assigned to us randomly (at least mine was) got new ones last night. Not that I was emotionally attached, but it is kind of annoying. Is this supposed to encourage us to pick one for ourselves?

    You sure? I thought yours was different too.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,003
    It looks the same to me.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,003
    In fact, yours also looks the same. Or very similar.

    Mine definitely got darker and angrier.

    Mine changed a while ago.

    I would have sworn that just yesterday, yours had a bright yellow background.

    Just for yucks, here’s what our three avatars look like to me today. Do you guys see the same?

  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,003
    No. They all seem the same as always. My avatar has a grey background; apparently you see it as a light green? And to me, CCC's is still bright yellow, but you see a sort of pale yellow/green/grey color?

    Well, I have to go to a meeting. Good bye until tomorrow.

    Ah ha! There is something fishy going on! 
    Why the hell am I seeing different colors?

    The above screen shot is from Safari on my iPad. When I look at my iPhone, I see the same. When I look on my MacBook, I see the same except MY avatar looks like it used to.

    There is one solution: go and create one you like at gravatar.com and it'll appear here automatically.

    Might another solution be that someone is colorblind? 560Heliport's avatar definitely has a light, bright green background (brightness may vary depending on monitor/screen settings). And CCC's avatar background is definitely a muted yellow, almost gray.

    At least I'm still Xzbit!
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,649
    Apparently the solution is to go have lunch and check back in a couple hours because now they’re all back to normal for me. But not for @Lego_Lord_Mayorca I guess.

    They all changed a few months ago for me, and haven't differed since. I still see CCC's as the bright yellow background, though.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,154
    Mine has been pale for me for ages.

    Okay, so as of today I'm seeing pale-background @CCC. Odd.

    @CCC has gone full white background for me. Are you toying with us @CCC ?

    @CCC is now Evil Humpty Dumpty.

    Mine changed while I was eating lunch! Now I'm angry! (my avatar, that is; I like it!)

    It's just disappointed that you opted for that piece of pie. Your avatar would be more relaxed if you stuck to your diet...

    Mine changed this morning too so you definitely aren't seeing things. I thought perhaps I'd hit 500 comments or something, but appears to just be a random change
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,003
    I guess my new avatar expresses my feelings about the changes to the VIP program!

    Mine looks like a UK plug
  • benbacardibenbacardi EnglandMember Posts: 454
    ^ Hmm, UK plugs are three rectangular pins, not a round one... I don't know of any like that!

    US/Canada plugs are two flat pins, one round ground pin, though typically one flat pin is wider than the other.
