I set up my instance a few days ago, and mostly it is running smoothly. However, a small number of remote/federated user avatars didn’t get pulled over/are showing as the default.
Here are the things I’ve tried to fix these accounts:
- Unfollowed and re-followed.
- Had a remote user upload a new avatar to the remote instance
- The “refresh avatar” button for the user in the moderator/accounts panel.
- Used the rake redownload_avatars task. No obvious errors, but truthfully I didn’t scrutinize all of its voluminous output.
Most of the remote accounts’ avatars show up fine. Two of these accounts are located on Mastodon.social, and one is another instance I forget which.
Suggestions for what to try next are welcome. I’m starting to think the solution will involve digging into SQL.
