Is it possible to add an avatar to our profile? Right now we're all just faceless blobs. It's creepy :P

I have not added an avatar specifically for this board. That would lead me to think they are using http://en.gravatar.com/

Does not work for me.
I tried very carefully, make sure I made no errors but it does NOT accept my Raspi name + password.

HI Gert,

Not sure whether this will help, but I did the Gravatar stuff, but nothing changed, then went in to My Profile, click update (without any changes!) and when I next looked, I had an Avatar.

It's only the email address that links the forum with Gravatar, so that's the only thing that needs to match.

It can take a few tens of minutes for the profile changes to filter through the gravatar system.

My problem is that Gravatar does not accept the name + password I use for the Raspberry Pi forum.
I assumed both used the same 'WordPress.com' database. Seems not, or it is not working.
Until I can log into Gravatar I can't upload a picture.

You can use a completely different username and password on Gravatar, in fact you should I guess. Once set up, you specify what email address you want to use and associate that with an avatar.

i was going to suggest that he just tell everyone to go to the post office and look at the "most wanted" poster. that's what i do when people want a photo of me. just look for the one with the long hair and unkempt beard and that's near enough

Just had a call from Eben, who is soaking up the California sun. I quote:

"It's good that Gert is happy. It's not so much that when Gert is happy, everybody is happy; it's more that when he's miserable, it…communicates itself."

Hurrah for a working gravatar.

The email address I use on the forum is registered with Gravatar, yet I still appear to be a faceless blob. Ideas, anyone?

If you've only just made changes, be patient - it takes a little time for Gravatar to update itself.

I just found out it:
We must change the rate of our photos to G, on the gravatar site.

Thanks, Montekuri, just done that. Hope it works, because no other suggestions have, even though my image appears on the Gravatar site.

Yes, but I have heard (although it may be only a rumour) that some forum members don't actually use their own photos....

Well I am shocked!

Where could that rumour have started?
