Why we decided to use Gravatar

0 favourites
  • Hmm, I tried to clear my cache and I have checked that my Scirra profile mail and my Gravatar profile mail match, but I don`t have my Gravatar yet?

    It`s like two days since I registred my Gravatar-profile.

  • Even after clearing my cache constantly after months my gravatar on this website won't change.

  • : Works for me.

  • Hi, I'm new here,

    I'm a bit disappointed to have to sign up more than just once as you mentioned.

    Once I've signed up to Gravatar, they then throw a "Sign up for WordPress" to receive your avatar.

    I'm not interested in using WordPress, I don't use it, I never want to use it, all I want to do is put up my REAL picture and get on with why I signed up here.

    If the purpose is to attach your links to my personal identity through Gravatar for marketing purposes then I would like to know why you failed to mention this part of the process.

    Please explain

    Edit1: If caniluna is wrong then why is it happening to everyone else without a WordPress account? You MUST have an account with WordPress before you can be accepted.

    Not everyone wants a WordPress account nor should we be coaxed or enticed against our rights to getting one.

    Edit2: This is going to halt my progress to continue filling out my profile on this site by having a ridiculous default profile picture to represent my professional work.

    I'm not signing up for WordPress nor should I be forced to.

  • As explained in the how to sign up help thread on gravatar a wordpress account is the same thing as a gravatar account.

    Originally, gravatar was an independent service, it is likely that since it was "bought"/associated with wordpress.

    The link above should explain the process simply.

    DivineWorks: You should prefer to use the "Edit post" option rather than posting several posts in a row.

    Again, and as explained through this topic, gravatar is an independent service that Scirra chose to simplify its own load of the forums (not having to handle the storage and serving of the avatars).

  • Yeah, Wordpress screwed it all up.

    I had to make an entire Blog before I could have my avatar. And actually, I had to sign into Gravatar with the wordpress account, and then give Gravatar permission to the Wordpress account.


    Although it does say if you had a Gravatar account, you now have the Wordpress account automatically. (why don't they still do that.) Sigh.

  • Fun fact: you can have a different gravatar image for each website using email tags.

    For this, go to your Scirra profile and change your email to youremail+scirrazbk@host.com.

    Example: my email is henriquelazarini@gmail.com, so I changed it to henriquelazarini+scirrazbk@gmail.com

    (the +scirra is a tag you are adding to your email that wont change how you receive your emails. Any email sent to youremail+scirrazbk@host.com will be sent to youremail@host.com)

    Now go to gravatar and add this new email adress. PS: you need to confirm both these email changes (they will arrive just like any regular email)

  • Gravatar is broken here

  • yes it is people I know who they are by there image and dont know there name is messed up

  • and they gave me an ugly one

  • You are still beautiful on the inside.
