looks like excite truck on acid, literally.

Gravatar has arrived

at 16:00 - 27th, January 2010
So i was thinking about getting around to implementing the avatar system and was deciding if i wanted to do it myself or wanted to get a 3rd party involved. Curt had mentioned to me a while ago something called Gravatar and how it could be used to maintain avatars across a wide variety of websites. i looked into, got it working on a small scale here and just needed time to implement it globally.

I just finished doing the last little bit of that. As you've probably noticed my avatar has changed to the zelda crest and everyone else's has gone back to the default no avatar image.

To fix your avatar
Go to and create an account if you don't have one or just log into your account.
Once logged in, mouse over "my account" in the top left corner of the window and click on the appropriate link.

the way gravatar works is i send it your encrypted email address i have on file and it using that info it sends back your avatar.

you can have multiple email addresses in the gravatar account too.

so please, everyone go create or update your account.
if you're not sure about your email address just go visit your profile page by clicking on your name or default avatar anywhere on the site.
