My group, Permanent Glory, has a new profile avatar i uploaded last night. When I view the profile page, the larger version of the avatar is still the placeholder orange flag gif.
I hoped it would just take a little while to show up, but it's been over 8 hours and still no image. Did I not upload my avatar correctly? also, on the group profile page, you list the avatar size as 250 x 56. That can't be right, can it?

    It looks to me like your avatar got up properly. Let me know if you're still experiencing a problem.

    On the main "profile" page for a group,
    http://www.dailykos.com/user/Permanent%20Glory
    there is the tiny group avatar, and then a much larger "placeholder"
    guy-with-orange flag image. Is that larger image always a placeholder, or
    can it be our avatar? I'm pretty sure we're all aware we're still on dkos,
    the giant placeholder avatar gif seems silly and it would be nice if our
    group avatar weren't relegated to "tiny" so that there can be a huge
    placeholder right below it.

    I understand if that's not how the code is written, I was just wondering
    because it seems weird to give so much weight to a placeholder graphic.

    Ah. That placeholder is always there for groups. It has to do with there being two possible logos in the original design, one in the header and one for the profile. Over time, this will likely change, but I'm not sure exactly how right now.

    ah, thanks. i thought perhaps my image was just not populating all the
    "avatar" spots, or that i had uploaded to one and missed another.
    thanks for the clarification.

    (*whenever that does get addressed, though, my two cents are that* an
    additional giant placeholder avatar is silly, considering the URL, masthead,
    and pretty much every other electron on the page glows orange with
    kosification. *it would be nice to have the group avatar be able to appear
    in at least one spot where it's larger than a postage stamp.*)
