Question about Facebook Avatar


Yesterday i created an account over at using Facebook login. This worked fine and my picture from Facebook is used as my profile avatar.

Then i associated my account here on with my Facebook account but somehow my facebook picture is not used here.

Is this feature turned off here on And if it is what are the benefits of turning it off ?

Just wondering

Did you create your account here via Facebook, or create the account and then associate it?

The latter will not update your avatar, the former will.
Here i already had an account and I associated it.

I guess that kind a explains it then. But should there not be an option to use my Facebook picture then. You know i actually had an avatar before i associated with Facebook.

Associating my account with Facebook changed my username to my real name and left me avatarless.

I guess this would be a feature suggestion then? My IPboard has a setting to use my facebook avatar even if the account was associated later on. I'll request this in the proper forum if it hasn't been suggested yet.
