i suggest renaming this topic to something similar to “PLEASE READ BEFORE CREATING A TOPIC ABOUT PROFILE PICTURE ISSUES”
it's very obvious people aren't taking the time to read this as the front page is almost composed entirely of (and this is basically what many of these topics are named) “my pfp won't workkk D:<” and i feel as though it would help if the topic caught the eyes of users more

Thank you for the sticky, does anyone know if this is planned to be resolved? when sharing projects the thumbnail is either no existant or appears blank.
For example in padlet, in teh past I would see a thumbnail and now this

I've made a topic like this a few weeks ago, and someone said the ST didn't need any guides. I'm confused. Why isn't this one taken down?

Maybe they thought the topic was a guide, how-to, or tutorial, instead of a topic with information regarding recent problems that probably anyone could've experienced, and a place to sort out the conversation about it from all over the forum. It can already be pretty easy for someone to notice that a topic is an explanation and not a question, bug report, suggestion, etc., but observing why isn't as easy, so they may have immediately had the thought that it was a guide, and went to inform you. With many forum users with different experiences and experience levels, there can be several different possible viewpoints on a topic, so that might have been the one you received first.

I've seen quite a lot of posts about the same recent and relevant issues with thumbnails. It looks like these issues have been widespread according to several forum topics about this very issue.


If you are noticing these issues too, it's probably better to add on to one of the already-made topics below, rather than making your own separate one. This will help our discussions remain in one place for each issue. Below, I have a list of issue reports mentioning thumbnails turning into a default image and staying that way. To discuss these issues, click one of the links below.

Project thumbnails show as a Scratch Cat
Profile pictures show as the default avatar
Studio thumbnails show as a default studio logo


These issues have been seen before, but it seems that there was recently a big influx of these issue reports.

According to @cheddargirl, the ST is working on some website updates, and those could make thumbnails and PFPs act a bit strange. And it can be hard work to maintain this large a website and work out the little issues when you're a nonprofit with limited team members and several background tasks, so it may take some time.

I believe these issues are a little different for everyone. If someone says their PFP didn't change and instead turned into the default icon, then it's possible you may not notice this problem, even on their PFP. You also may or may not come across all the issues when others are, it's just seemingly inconsistent. I haven't studied to see when and where this is going on though, so I'm guessing in order to say this.

Don't worry about thumbnails you tried to upload too much, because they are somewhere on the server, just not being shown due to glitches. The thumbnails do eventually get restored.


Note that if some thumbnails load slowly, that's normal for Scratch. This might be happening from general request lag when the server decides to reload thumbnails.


Some of you may be asking to know, what can I do while there are problems with thumbnails? Well, the more traffic there is, the more time it will take the site to do stuff, so one of the things you could do is just take a break and edit on the app. This means you don't have to think about thumbnails at all, as you're not on the Scratch website, and projects will save to your device. You can download projects you want to continue working on, or create new ones from the app.

I also found that it seems to be at certain moments where thumbnails show as default images instead. If you don't want them to stay that way, try opening a thumbnail that is okay and changing the size of it a little bit by adjusting the “_number x number” part of the URL. This will allow you to test load a thumbnail without creating any visible issues. If it's a default, wait a few moments and then try another size. If it loads correctly, you might be successful when loading other thumbnails for the next moment.


Anyway, hopefully this post will catch some people's attention and help sort out the thumbnail/PFP conversations.

Someone else has a related list topic as well, so I'll link that as a “see also” because it was probably also created to indicate these issues:
GerekRulesGwof's common bugs from server work topic

Thanks, very informative.
When the ST will finish these updates, will the thumbnails be restored with no problem a all?
