    Which camera icon are you missing? The one on the green blob?

    Report it on the bugs thread, but (I hate to say it) tag Rosaline or Pippa with the @tes

    yes, the green blob one.

    I'll nip over and report it, thanks gp

    Really useful feature that - I log into TES and they display a green dot to remind me that I'm online. They've thought of everything.

    You don't need to log in to look at the forums, though.

    That said, it doesn't seem to work properly - I just looked at an old post when I wasn't logged in, and it still had the green dot on it.

    I changed my picture this morning, and the change was instant in a lot of places, but in a few - on Resources, in the shop, when I appear as a follower on someone's profile, for example - the old picture persists.

    If you look at the link, where the new picture appears there is a querystring, and where there is no querystring the old picture appears, e.g.

    - old picture: https://d2w4qhtqw2dbsq.cloudfront.net/profile_live/232131/large.jpg

    - new picture: https://d2w4qhtqw2dbsq.cloudfront.net/profile_live/232131/large.jpg?1

    The characters after the question mark can be anything, and the same is true of small.jpg. Does that make it some sort of caching issue?

    NB. The links to the "old" and "new" pictures in the above post now both show the new image.
