    Hey Melly, if you want a picture, you should sign up at gravatar.com

    Two things: it has to be assigned to the same email address you are using on your account here; and it might take 10 or 20 minutes to show up, once set.

    Hmmm. That was interesting. I've never heard of them before. Cool.

    I'm signed up with gravatar, but not with this email. I suppose I'll have to go do that, now. I'm surprised though that you can't upload avatars to the forum, I've never seen one that used gravatar before.

    I'm not a fan of Gravatar, it's pretty useless. Guess I'll have to go without, eh?

    Regards,

    When you set it up, did you get a popup that asked you to confirm your selection? It seems to associate the first image you upload with your account, but I'm not convinced it does until you actually manually do it and confirm it. Other than that, I don't really know what the problem might be.

    Did you upload and then crop a picture, Melly? After you do that, you need to click the picture you want and hit the "confirm" button.

    Edit: Chris beat me to it. :p

    Actually Melly, if you look at your profile, you're picture is there... though I couldn't tell you why it isn't show up on your posts...

    I really like Gravatar - and it's kind of cool that the forum software runs them. :)

    So does that mean the same image will show up on any forum where I used this email address?
    I'm not crazy about that: some forums have specific content and purpose and I use avatars I designed for that purpose.

    If you use the same address on all of them, yes. However, you may register several email address with Gravatar, and associate different images to them.

    gotcha, thanks.

    I notice all the ones here are square. Is that the format they want, or just what WFG takes?
    Is there a "best" size/dimensions for gravatar?
