Gravatar – Globally Recognized Avatar: This is the Gravatar Plugin for WordPress. “A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is quite simply an 80×80 pixel avatar image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on gravatar enabled sites.” Find out more information about Gravatar on their website. There are plugins available for Textpattern and Movable Type systems as well. Anyone use this yet?

    A button might be not close enough to the comment form. I just added a line to my wp-comments.php saying that little picture that goes with the comments can be personalized at – that should be pretty selfexplanatory.

    I did something very similiar, w/links to my blog entry about gravatars, a link to the site, and a link to the site’s FAQ.

    I use it on mine. Adds some personality and fun to the comments.

    I do, and it does look quite silly if you’re the only one using it. My gravatar is the only one showing up on my site so it is kind of boring, it looks better if more people have gravatars.

    Hi there. Long time reader first time poster.
    I’ve signed up and am a Gravatar user.
    A question and an answer to my own question – How would other Gravatar users know if a blog was Gravatar enabled ?
    I propose a button should be created and displayed on your blog if you are using Gravatar.
    I should mention this to Gravatar themselves actually…

    I’m using it, as well. :) See?
