Gravatars and my secret method for selecting them

Category: Uncategorized @ 10:18 am

I’m sure most of you have noticed the small images that appear next to some people’s names in the comments/entries section.  Just in case you’re interested, I thought I’d tell you how to get one.  They’re called gravatars and you can get them (for free) at Gravatar.com.  Once you confirm your email address and choose your little picture, it will automagically appear on any blog on which you make a comment (well, any blog that uses Gravatars, which is a lot).  The only thing you have to be careful of is to make sure the email you give Gravatar and the email you give the blog are the same.

That brings up the topic of how to choose the image to use for your Gravatar (which, by the way, is short for Globally Recognized Avatar).  Some people use images of themselves (like MM user Shirin).  Some people use drawings (I use the old version of the MM brain, and user Bunny Slippers just started using a drawing of what appear to be bunny slippers).  

If you’re having trouble deciding what image to use, there is a method I invented that I’ve used to help people.  You’ve probably heard about how to figure out your porno name.  You take the name of your first pet as your first name and the name of the street you grew up on as your last name.  Well, I suggest Googling your porno name and using the first image that shows up in the image results (Which for my porno name, “Doc Oaks”, is this stud).  If the image is not really usable or terribly boring, a secondary choice is to select any image that shows on the first page of the image results.

Lastly, the rumor that you’ll have your soul stolen if you upload a gravatar pic of yourself is nearly unfounded.

    Yeah, that seems about right. A similar image comes to mind every time you post something. :)

    So you’re saying the people who have changed their avatars on this site did so through gravatar? I thought about changing mine a while back, but couldn’t find a way to do it.

  5. Gabriel Says:

    Yes, it’s all done through Gravatars.com now. I believe Gravatars are now built into WordPress (the major blog software on which this site is built).

    But then we’ll lose our snowflake design things. They started out meaningless, but over time we’ve defined them. I don’t know if I can give up my white and orange thing.

    Now we’ll have to re-learn everyone’s avatar . . .

    I don’t think Cora Oak isn’t a very good porno name.

    But i did find a lot of good picture for my name, so it’ll all be a’ight.
