Gravatar 2.0 to Launch Feb 15

That’s right, I’ve finally set a solid date. The semi-private beta will open (for anyone who has left a comment on this blog) sometime this weekend. That’ll give a few days for any last minute fixes and then it’s prime time! I know the wait has been long, but I think you’ll find it worthwhile, and it will allow me to grow Gravatar in new and exciting directions. Once again, thanks for your support and patience!

    Thank you for the final date! I’ve been a strong supporter of Gravatar since I saw how easy it is to incorporate it into WordPress blogs, and was starting to implement one of the many plugins that allow its incorporation into phpBB boards, when sadly Gravatar was getting prepared to launch version 2.0. It would hardly make sense to promote it while the site was down πŸ™‚ But… I’m pretty sure the long wait will be worth it!!

    Thank you as well for keeping the existing Gravatars fully functional during this period, I was a bit worried that this suddenly stopped working! Well, it never did. Excellent decision πŸ™‚

    Also, I hope you’ll allow people to donate a bit of cash to keep the servers running happily once Gravatar 2.0 comes out…

    Good luck with the “Upgrade” and the testing!
