    You have to be a contributor now to get a picture (avatar). Only non-contributors that had avatars prior to the last upgrade still have them.

    I had an avatar prior to the last upgrade. Then, after a few days, it disappeared...

    Maybe you tried to edit it?

    No, enigma, I think it has to do that it was a avatar that you picked from the site itself. I also had an avatar, but I picked it from the selected ones on the site. I think only the people who had custom avatars prior kept them.

    Yep, that's what happened to me too (I wasn't a contributor yet). I think you're right about that. If you had a "borrowed" avatar from PF, those very quickly disappeared. Those who had custom avatars seem to have gotten to keep those, at least until they make the mistake of trying to change them.
