New Gravatar Algorithm?

I’m personally a big fan of StackOverflow, so I was excited to see them implement Gravatars for all of their users a while back. Now they’ve gone and done something even more amazing — temporarily replaced their Gravatars with UNICORNS! Read their full post for some details on the implementation, but basically it works like our Identicon, Wavatar and Monsterid default choices, generating a unique avatar based on your email address.

They even have their unicorn-generating-drop-in-Gravatar-replacement service online for everyone to try out. Here’s mine!

Maybe we should talk to the folks over there about this being a new default option on

Happy April Fool’s everyone 😉
