Identicons Deploy

May 04, 2008 | Posted by Matt users now have more avatar options, to choose the new defaults we talked about previously.

Those options will also be included with WordPress 2.6!

Also — the PNG thing is on our radar. Will have to change some things up to make it work again, but it’s just code. 🙂

    I also just noticed the misbehaviour of PNG files on Gravatar. Uploaded a new one in JPG with white background. Would appreciate if transparency would be supported.

    Gravatar signup could be made better if you parsed for common email address urls like hotmail, yahoo, gmail, aol etc and then created a big link to that email login url at the end of the after sign up message.

    Thank goodness for the png fix – without alpha transparency, my gravatar just doesn’t work 😦

  22. Retodon8 says:

    Thank you for working on bringing back PNG support! 🙂
    The main news bit is nice too of course, but I’m just not a WordPress user myself.

  23. Thanks for the phg news – I also hope transparency will be kept when resizing png’s….

    I love the new PNGs. Good work guys.

  29. neil says:

    Sounds great…one question, though — where do you take Gravatar feature requests? Is there a feature nomination tool like there is for

    I ask because I’d like to see support for Gravatar Timelines…basically, the gravatars that show up in blog posts or comments should match the picture I was using on that date. That way, as I change pictures over for my Gravatar, the picture that shows for old posts won’t (if that’s how the blog or whatever is set up).

    I think this would be great for tracking how children grow over time — I plan on my blogging on behalf of my daughter until she’s old enough to do it herself, and it would be really cool to see a timeline of pictures for those posts.

    Thought you’d guys like to know that Chris Pirillo is using Gravatar in his new web template. If you want to see it for yourself go here and take a look at the comments section:

    I’m using the latest version of WP 2.5.1 on a local production machine – but I can only see the Avatar Display and Maximum Rating rows – the Default Avatar choice is missing. I was wondering why there was no way to change the default avatar in the Settings > Discussion earlier and came across this post and see that this is – only it doesn’t appear for me.

    Me duele ¿como es posible que haya gente sin escrúpulo que no se cansa de hacer daño a los hombres sino que también se mete con Dios?, Hna. Glenda, no te desanimes, porque Dios y nosotros estamos contigo.

    Some problems in ? – I can’t log in to my account. I need to create a new account.!

  41. Laetizia says:

    What is this whole thing? Where did you get my old, no longer valid email address from and why can’t I change this – I moved to another country fer cryin out loud. Things change. How come I am logged in – I don’t even know to what I am supposed to be logged in to. What’s this bull about not erasing accounts at the moment? I never asked for an account, I never gave you any email and I never logged in or out from this.
    I don’t know what you people are pulling here, but I don’t like your methods. You *could* have just *asked* me if I wanted this and maybe I’d have accepted. Now I feel hoodwinked. Way to go, people.
