Features that were previously ‘paid only’ are now free for all!

As of 1:03 (ish) PM PST we’ve unlocked the ability for all accounts to have multiple e-mail addresses and more than 2 uploaded avatars to choose from. We hope you’ll enjoy using these features as much as we enjoy bringing them to you.

We’ll be gathering a list of everyone who upgraded in the last 60 days and will send them by a refund via Paypal early next week.

    Hey, any chance you guys might open up an API to allow us to create, say, a plugin for WPMU that allows users to control/signup for their Gravatars directly through the admin interface? I’m really hoping to encourage my users to use Gravatars, since they make your presence online so personable!

    I just added Gravatars to my blog and the response has been very positive. One reader expressed interested in OpenId support, so any site he logs on to using OpenId can utilize Gravatars. Would you consider adding OpenId support of some sort to your service? Thanks!

    Ironically enough, I came to gravatar.com today to pay for the multiple email feature, and found that it was free! However, I would still love to donate, so if I can dig up your Paypal email address, I’ll be doing just that.

    Hey guys, this is a really awesome idea! I’m going to hook it into my sites soon. I noticed on your implementation page that you don’t provide advice on how to hook gravatars into a Ruby on Rails site, so I wrote a helpful article: Gravatars on Rails. Thanks!
