    For our readers experiencing latency?

    Short answer:
    Be patient and wait eventually this will get added to your Sketchfab account, may take nearly 3-5 minutes when it feels like an eternity for the avatar to change

    Long answer:
    Back in 2017 I signed-up and today i've decided to change my avatar using the recommended 512x512 + JPG under 1MB and all i was getting is a spinner for nearly 5 minutes with a JPG = 48KB which feels like an eternity for the avatar to change

    Tried using a Mac BookPro running High Sierra and Apple iMac running Yosemite

    Google Chrome
    Version 67.0.3396.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Firefox Quantum
    57.0.1 (64-bit)

    and then after writing this comment I see my updated avatar - woo hoo!

    Could be a number of things why this happened

    • The server is bogged down
    • Time of day
    • Cache on the server is backed up
    • Memory on the server
    • Traffic is high

    Your guess is as good as mine. For those experiencing latency all I can recommended is give the upload some time. If this didn't work for you add a comment and maybe someone has a different experience to share with the community!
