devo's volleyball – Australian volleyball: news and views

Those funny pictures

Posted by devo on December 15, 2008

I was asked last week, “How do you get those pictures beside the comments on the blogs?”

The random designs are generated automatically from your email address if you don’t have a gravatar. So if you don’t want to be recognised, don’t use your normal email address!

The “real” pictures are Gravatars, or globally recognized avatar. They are simply an avatar image that follows you from blog to blog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites. Avatars help identify your posts on web forums, so why not on blogs?

Signing up for a account is FREE, and all that’s required is your email address. Once you’ve signed up you can upload your avatar image and soon after you’ll start seeing it on gravatar enabled blogs such as devo’s volleyball! And our readers community will get to know you a little better.  You can sign up for a gravatar here!

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
