(Hi everyone!) So this has happened to me quite a few times in the past two months. I know it’s no big deal but it’s crept me out since I asked my friends and I’m the only one having this issue.
i’m not smart or anything, but maybe your client is forgetting what profile picture your using and just goes to a default one.
It might be an issue with the Escargot servers. They’re usually a little spotty
In relation to what LushPineapple said, I don’t think they’d be saved via your client, they’d most likely be saved on the Escargot servers.
Usually sometimes when the client disconnects if you still have a conversation window open, your profile just disappears. S o maybe, the server is saving and storing the profile picture but not giving it back?
With WLM, display pictures are retrieved locally from the contact’s computer (or any P2P fallback), and with 8.5 their only use on the server side is for roaming purposes. I’d wager that the client just defaults back to an empty display picture when someone logs off or something.
