Why did our avatars change?

AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,172
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: 723
    It looks the same to me.

    In fact, yours also looks the same. Or very similar.

    Mine definitely got darker and angrier.

    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: 723
    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: 2,172
    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: 17,324
    Mine has been pale for me for ages.

    I'm not gonna lie, every time I see yours I think it's a bikini on the ground of floating in water. My brain is weird.

    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 ?
