Problem with updating image icon

Response to your post on Talk:Lotro-Wiki Contributors' Corner. Your text:
I'm trying to fix the skill icon for Unerring Strike. For some reason it's showing the icon for Mighty Blow. When I upload the Unerring Strike image, something weird is happening. If you look at the history at https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/File:Unerring_Strike-icon.png, you can see that the latest version looks like Mighty Blow, even though I've uploaded the Unerring Strike image three times now. Unhelpfully, it is showing the correct icon in 2nd and 3rd items in the history, but if you revert to those versions, it continues to show the Mighty Blow icon for the current version. Strange?

For me (and others that haven't visited the File:Unerring Strike-icon.png page recently) the new icon does show correctly. The old icon automatically gets shown to you because it's still in your browser's cache. Use F5 to reload the page and it should show up correctly. This is also the case for pages that use this icon. Hopefully this helped! --Ravanel (talk) 14:09, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
The other trick is to use the "Purge" pulldown at the top right of a page. There are multiple caches involved on the Wiki itself. Image things don't get updated immediately, but when a housekeeping job runs. The Purce option basically forces that update to happen whenever you trigger it. It also forces your browser to reload its cache.
