An example of the glitch

The Default Avatar Glitch occurred on June 8, 2011, when everyone had their avatar shown as the default: a plain face with generic black eyes and smile with a red hat. When a user checked their profile in Edit Profile, their original avatar was still there, but it did not show up on any of their posts. On June 9, 2011, it was fixed. The avatars were never actually changed because avatar data viewed from Edit Profile was the same before, during and after the glitch. A similar occurrence was known as the "Avatar X Glitch," which turned all users' avatars into an X.
