    Character art turned into a shipping label!

    So uh

    It was pointed out to me by a watcher that one of my characters no longer has art associated with its character page:
    https://www.weasyl.com/character/34444/pendleton

    Instead, it has "art" of a shipping label: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vk6hon6skd...4444.cover.png (dropbox link in case the issue gets fixed before the thread is read)

    When I click on the image, however, it takes me to the correct image.
    https://www.weasyl.com/static/charac...bmit.18181.png

    This is VERY very weird and I'm wondering what might have caused it and whether I can switch it back. I don't want to switch it back until one of the devs or coders knows about it because if images are spontaneously changing, this needs to be resolved ASAP.

    That... is an odd bug...

    I can't imagine what would cause something like this. The only things I can think of would involve either Weasyl doing shipping (which we know they don't ATM) or someone uploading a sample shipping label as art, and the temporary file just happened to overwrite your character's.

    Yeah, I can't think of what would cause it either but I felt that Weasyl should know about something like this. Maybe it's been happening to other people too.

    I've seen this happen on other sites before. Could never figure out what was causing it, but people's avatars were being changed to random things like pictures of a dog.

    I'm sorry, but that's pretty goddam hilarious. Let's ship your characters to Google Inc.
