uploaded pictures[edit source]
Sometimes it can take some time till a picture updates, if you are sure that you uploaded the right picture then just way a little .. (up to 24 hours in a rare worst case) .. till the updated picture shows up. I didn't remove the File:Icon Achievement Woodworker 10.png since it looks okish now.

- Hi there!
- So you can see the uploaded picture now? Strange, it still doesn't show up for me. Neither on the article that uses it, on its own page, or on the category page for the achievement icons. All I get is an empty square where the picture is supposed to be. I've tried a full page refresh (Ctrl+F5), putting eq2.wikia.com on my internet security program's banner whitelist, and even logging out, deleting all cookies for eq2.wikia.com, then logging back in - still nothing. All other icons show up just fine for me... maybe it's a browser issue of some sort. Anyway, if you can see it, I'll leave it at that for now, unless you've got a suggestion about what the issue could be. Thanks for your reply anyway! -- Ailar 17:30, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
- Try adding ?action=purge (or, if there's already a ? in the URL, &action=purge) to the end of the URL when looking at the image. That can force it to rebuild the cached image, although sometimes you will still have to wait for it to show up properly. It's due to the way wikia caches images to reduce server load. --lordebon 18:57, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
- Don't worry updated images are mostly a server side cache thing, as Lordebon said.
- The adress in your browser will look like http://eq2.wikia.com/wiki/File:Icon_Achievement_Woodworker_10.png?action=purge then. -- 19:04, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
