There have been several reports of missing Avatars on the old design. I do not know if it is a bug or intentional. The Avatars are not missing on the new design. And remember, everyone will be migrated to the new design in about 3 weeks.

hmm, thats too bad. maybe Youtubes idea of trying to push people into the new cosmic panda (horrible) update?

I know that on march 7th the old youtube will be gone, along with many of its followers.
however i wish my avatar would still work until then, seeing how im not changing to the new design on my own free will

I don't believe the missing avatars will be fixed. The only way to fix it is to switch. None of of want to switch because we love our customization.So youtube may be stripping away the things we like to force us to switch earlier. If they have done this on purpose it's really stupid, because most people will assume it's a bug and will patiently wait for it to be fixed, rather than switch.Very unprofessional.

to the people in charge of yuotube:
PLEASE DONT FORCE US, 
THE NEW DESIGN IS LAME, NOT MANY CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS. PLEASE LET US KEEP OUR OLD CHANNELS !

Think of it as minor punishment for those who haven't voluntarily switched over to NSA/Google's new shitty design ... and I suggest that only because the new design is so *intentionally* awful, impersonal, and non-user friendly that one can only assume those responsible are very hateful corporate drones 'obeying orders' like the good little fascists they are.

It is a bug and staff is aware of it, and they are working on a fix.

What is funny it is how difficult it becomes to find information about any YT bugs. It's all so well hidden that one needs to google it !!! I tried to find the topic, no results, then post my own question in order to learn that "another discussion addresses that question" And did you notice that "help" disappeared from the bottom of the homepage ? They visibly don't give a shit any more... I don't think they will fix avatars unfortunately. Luckily I've a copy of my channel on Zippcast now ;-)

Besides there is something else, I report it here as I don't have any more time to spent in order to find right tread. It is impossible to see comments on channels any more, just the first page of them. There are not even pages numbers referring to comments on channels any more. They really want us to stop communicating, those Goolag dictators !
Re: My Avatar on my channel has disappeared! Guessowii 2/17/12 9:36 AM
Yup, comments are gone. 

It seems to me, that this update has accomplished nothing good and somehow made things harder to use.

Thanks again google!

Hey everyone, this is a bug that we hope will be fixed today.
Re: My Avatar on my channel has disappeared! ytrebecca 2/17/12 12:41 PM
Looks like this has been fixed.  Please let me know if you're still seeing this issue!
Re: My Avatar on my channel has disappeared! Guessowii 2/17/12 9:32 PM
Yup its fine now, thanks Rebecca!

My avatar shows on my channel but not on search results pages. Is there a fix for this? I have replaced the image to force a fix but no luck. Help.

@basis, are you editing your avatar in the Edit Channels menu or under Account Settings?

Re: My Avatar on my channel has disappeared! Jodi Green 3/4/13 8:43 AM
I'm having the same problem.  My profile pic is showing up in my Google account, but not in my youtube channel.  When I try to edit it under Appearance, there is no choice for avatar.  Only for background.  Can anyone help??  This whole Google and Youtube thing is confusing the heck out of me.  Thanks!
