Re: Straw poll for new forums - gravatar, yea or nay?

Personally, I say nay; I'd prefer we upload our avatars directly and don't use a third-party host. How about the rest of you?

Of course, a nice thing about the new forums is that they will allow us to do real polls.

Would this be an opportunity to try a poll on the beta forum?

I think we'll stick with asking people here - we know polls work over there, and I want to get a cross-section of answers, not just answers from those who are testing the new forum.

You could have that as the question in the poll itself. But then we'd all be sucked into a wormhole. (We did trial one on the first beta – they work fine!)

Since most of the comments here are between admins, I'll provide another input from outside the echo chamber ... chamber ... chamber ...

Uploading an image directly is fine  by me.  So are great curries, or any other kind of great food, for that matter!

Definitely

Oh - direct upload, not third party. 

As for curries, I find (on swift and distressing inspection) that morning after curries mainly consist of diced carrot...

I feel it would be better to go for the direct upload option simply because you cannot depend on third parties to filter nsfw images.

In a direct upload situation, the foundation and mods will have full control over user avatars and be able to delete them if necessary.

Direct upload for images below a certain size, with the option to link to photobucket/whatever, for people who want to use an animated GIF.

No gravatar pls.

No. A million times no. Hit the faq post with page profiling on for a reason why.

I would prefer direct upload. Personally I would not use gravatar, there are enough pointless services out there wanting to gather my data already.

Direct upload please (I've only not sorted an avatar yet as was expecting the change to have happened last week or so).
