    Hello, i created a small mod and use htaccess for removed a query strings from avatars.

    for example:

    before: data/avatars/s/0/1.jpg?1468399043

    after: data/avatars/s/0/1468399043/1.jpg

    I am not a professional programmer, and so my question is, what pitfalls or problems do I get if I use this method?

    Thank you!

    Why do you want to modify/remove the cache buster?

    My CDN provider ignored a query string, and if my members upload new avatar, old avatar continues to take from the CDN cache.

    Are there any downsides to my little modification?

    Thank you!

    Not explicitly, but having the CDN ignore query strings is likely not ideal.
