Gravatar Beta Email Snafu (Fixed)

There was a bit of a problem (isn’t that what betas are for?) with the email sending facility that caused signups to fail. I’ve fixed the problem and it shouldn’t happen again. Sorry for the troubles, get back to those gravatars!

    Yay – it’s working now for me. Thanks Tom. Now I just have to make sense of the “simple” instructions for implementing this on my WP blog. If plugins are meant to assist the clueless then my brain has been been removed!

    Works for me without problem. How many gravatar can be assigned to an email? Can we have something like: “You can upload up to X gravatar”? Or, is it unlimited? Thanks!

    This is a test to see if my avatar uploaded. Am having problems with the avatar uploader thingy, uploader from my computer won’t work at all, and over the internet, every image I try gives me a size too big error, 40×40 is bigger then 0x0 that will not fly, error. then, I press the back button on my browser, and hit cancel, the image shows up in my list, but the image is cropped. cuts off part of my head, still buggy yet. Good test run though 🙂

    I found TWO problems:

    1.- The confirmation email for a new account was rated as Spam by Gmail.

    2.- The creation for a new gravatar always sent me an error if my image was already 80x80px or 400x400px, it only worked when I sent a 800×600 image, and it was cropped whith a little of blur.

    First of all: a really BIG thx to you!
    The “Upload from harddrive” issue still exists, but only if the image is smaller than 180x180px! For testing I created a 80×80 JPG picture and painted a white border with 50px width around it. Upload and crop is fine in IE7 and Firefox 2.0.0.1.
    Once again: great work!

    Thank you, Tom, for getting Gravatar back up and running. I am having a problem uploading and/or displaying animated GIFs. This one shows as movable in my Gravatar reserve, however, on blogs, he is stationary. Another one I uploaded does not even show the animation. Is this a temporary situation? They worked in the past. Thanks again.

    Hey Tom,

    Here is what the website http://www.mmahq.com has to say about our non-working gravatars…

    @DENNIS and BV

    you can see that your gravatar isn’t working by going to this link:

    http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=b4f4e429560b426605ed234ba6a27577

    that is the link for the email address you use. So either you don’t have a gravatar setup correctly on their website, or its a problem on their end. nothing that I can do.

    @BV

    same thing with you dude. here is your link

    http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=ec6bfd1208375ed9b5e47d1f8fb5a83c

    nothing comes back but the generic icon
