    …I seem to have gained a cartoony smiling wedge of cheese as my profile picture. Very apt but I have never been near the gravatar site and i'd have thought it would need to 'log in' as me to put it in there.

    Can anyone else see it?

    Anyone else gained a picture?

    I had something like an arse wearing glasses peeping through curtains… so I changed it for an arse wearing a hat sat on a rock.

    WTF is a gravatar (yes I know it's a little face picture thingy) but what does it mean. No way I'm going sleep tonight not knowing. FWIW mine is orange with glasses and buck teeth?

    It would seem the mods have achieved their aim. Personally I'm sticking with what they've given me on principle – and would do so even if I was thinking about adding a proper pic.

    me too i guess you can change these for real pics

    What benefit does adding a pic give the mods?

    Premier Icon GrahamS

    I don't think these were added by the mods. I suspect that Gravatar.com have just assigned random silly portraits to everyone who hasn't bothered registering their own pictures (gravatars).

    What's the point of having and avatar pic that only you can see πŸ˜•

    I know what I look like and try to spend as little time as possible looking at it….

    What's the point of having and avatar pic that only you can see

    Erm.. everyone who looks at your profile can see it. On this site and any other site that also uses gravatars. That's kinda the point.

    Yeah, right on brother! Stand up to THE MAN!

    If you change your mind you may wish to consider this.

    Issue with Gravatar is that you need to use the same email address so if you use different ones on different websites, it won't work (unless you can register multiple email addresses).

    I suspect no-one is really that fussed about seeing a picture of the peeps on here (unless it is the blokes trying to check out the females (and then discovering they are actually blokes!)), but Gravatar has probably done a block change for any unregistered accounts (although I don't recall ever doing anything on Gravatar so it must be some sort of template change done on the actual profile page when you register).

    Pentagon with a squint smile…not a bad guess, but it's of no interest to me…

    Yeah you do that and then just consider for a moment it has nothing to do with mods.

    mmm, so does this mean that stw have given gravatar my email address to generate this thing?

    I don't recall giving them permission to do that.

    Premier Icon Drac

    No it doesn't.

    I now kind of see what Mark meant the other day on Twitter.

    Premier Icon wwaswas

    so how does it work then Drac?

    Same way as it did before but now it's a different pic.
