Sometimes the page seems to access to the Mystery Man from and sometimes it accesses to the "local" Mystery Man from my page.

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing ticket as I believe it to be a temporary gravatar problem. Should be working now.
