Title says it all. Today I logged in to find my picture had changed to an ugly green and white.

  • Do you use Gravatar or have you uploaded to SE directly? – Tim Jul 9 '16 at 15:35
  • @Tim - Neither. This is the default icon. – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Jul 9 '16 at 15:36
  • I mean which what did it change from - your gravatar or an upload? – Tim Jul 9 '16 at 15:37
  • @Tim - I don't know what you're talking about. Before it was purple and white with a different pattern. – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Jul 9 '16 at 16:03
  • So you changed your email address on this site? – Tim Jul 9 '16 at 16:03
  • @Tim - No I did not. – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Jul 9 '16 at 16:04

    does this help? – Zanna Jul 9 '16 at 16:58
  • @Zanna could you post that as an answer? – terdon Jul 11 '16 at 10:07

According to this question

your identicon is based on a hash of your last known IP address

if you didn't enter your email address on your profile.

So, if you haven't put your email address on your profile and you logged in from a different IP address, your identicon would change... Maybe this is the explanation in your case.
