Avatar Blowing Up In Size While Loading (Mobile)

So, it's not really "an issue" but I thought maybe the IT side of this site may or may not want to know what's happening (quite frequently)

So when I'm using the mobile site and I enter a thread, the site will temporarily blow up the avatar (full screen) as the first thing I see and then load the page.

We are talking milliseconds here, but I always see it for the OP's avatar.

So just a minute ago, I saw a giant yellow penguin, then it loaded and it was someone's Pitsburgh Penguins avatar.

Slow internet? Slow phone? Slow site?

This sounds like the issue from a few months ago. We changed our code to improve page load speeds and people were seeing a random image (usually an emoticon) enlarged for a split second. Not sure if anything with the code for that has recently changed but I'll check into it. Is this only happening on the mobile site?

I believe so, I will try to keep my eye open for it.
I'm on the mobile site right now and it kept happening so I posted this message.

I will keep it in mind for the other methods.
