02:00 PM gravatar reset?

[ #36245 ]
I was an early adopter of gravatars, and mine originally showed up on my CPAN author page. I'm not sure if something has changed, but is there a way to kick the the gravatar cache to grab my new gravatar?

Loading... please wait.
  • I expect that the gravatars are cached at for maybe a day or so, so if you just wait for about 24 hours, it should update automatically.

    That's what I read into the last answer in's FAQ [], too.
    • No luck so far. I think it may be something other than a cache refresh that is needed.
      • I'm having a related problem that has not gone away with time. Originally my gravitar showed up (I too was an early adopter of the niftiness) but now nothing shows up. I'm faceless!
        • I emailed Schwern yesterday and consulted his wisdom. It turns out that the gravatar needs to be associated with your email address, ala 'phred at', or in your case 'wonko at'. I logged into PAUSE, made the necessary changes to have my cpan address forward, and voila! Gravatar is back in action.
