For this post:

https://permies.com/t/71834/a/55498/thumb-2017-10-21-09.19.06.jpg

My thumbnail is:

https://permies.com/t/71834/a/55498/thumb-2017-10-21-09.19.06.jpg

That first J-tube does not reflect what the post has become.  I'd like the Thumbnail to be:

https://permies.com/t/71834/a/57747/RMH-Walls.jpg

What do I need to do?  I tried to find where I could change it myself but couldn't.

I see that too.

And then i did a ctrol-refresh and the problem remains.

But the correct image does show up for "most recent"

I am asking our developer to have a look.

Please check again.

I can see the correct thumbnail in all columns now.

Normally changes to thumbnails can take a few hours to propagate to the 'best' columns.

Hi,

How was this fixed? Is there something OP can do, or does it happen on the back-end?

I'm asking for a PEP Badge Tracker that...I happen to know. His name is, uhhhh, McFly PEP Badge Tracker: https://permies.com/t/119155/PEP-Badge-Tracker-easier-track

He wants this image to be the thumbnail, https://i.imgur.com/6wnpBxX.jpg (it's linked in the thread)

instead of the credit-card-banner: https://permies.com/templates/default/betaview/images/card-types.png

If it's possible for me to fix it, I'm happy to do so. If not; thank you in advance for your help!
I mean, my friend thanks you! McFly says thanks.

My pleasure!  And changing the thumbnail is something you need to be a moderator to do.

For those who see this in the future, if you ever need a thumbnail changed, the slickest way is to "Report" your thread and ask to have a different one selected.  A moderator will see the report and likely act on it.  We can generally only choose between images that are elsewhere in that same thread.
