    That's a well known glitch here.

    I remember a few years ago, nearly everyone's nickname was changed into a question mark and their profile picture was a broken image. That went on for months, then it slowly got fixed over time.

    This happens periodically to almost everyone on YA. I do NOT think it is glitch. Yahoo periodically traces EVERYONE'S account activity for security reasons. It can last for several days. This used to happen on a university computer networks 3 times a year. This is not a glitch. Others are going to insist this has to.be a glitch and Thai am making stuff up, lying ad delusional and I should take my meds. I have taken my meds. This is based on 14 YEARS of personal life experience and observation and talking with numerous computer technicians including subnetwork supervisors. 

    Try to calm down. There's nothing YOU can do to "fix" this.

    A glitch that pops up almost yearly and may last a few days or weeks. Don't worry, it eventually goes away and avatars return to "normal".

    It's a fairly common glitch and usually sorts itself out after a few days- 

    I just went thru it recently.  I was a question mark for about a week....and then it went back to my avatar. 

    It's Yahoo.......same nonsense......different year.

    It is a well-known glitch.  It will disappear in a few days. Do not believe the lies putting out by others trying to scare people here.
