Changing your avatar
I see this is a recurring question so I decided to write a short post about how to do it:
1. Go to gravatar.com
2. Register an account there using the same email address
3. Add/change your avatar there
The important thing, as you may have guessed, is that you use the same email address you used for your account on artsygamer.com. I believe gravatar is a good solution because now your avatar can be independent of your accounts and you can reuse your avatar on multiple sites. I’m hoping that you too, like me, will now be pleasantly surprised when you’ll just want to leave a small comment/thank you on a site you’ve never visited before to find out that your comment will no longer be a nameless generic one but full of the personality of your avatar.
Note: in my test it took almost 5 minutes from the photo add/change until the changes were propagated over the internetz.
Note 2: if you already have one but like changing your avatar often and don’t feel like remembering stuff, I’ve just discovered that you can somply hover your mouse cursor above your avatar on the right sidebar and you will be offered a link to your profile there.
Other Artsygamer news: I’m happy to announce that finally after years of wishing for it and not knowing how to do it tonight I was able to add the site logo to the banner and some small design tweaks in that area. Hope everybody likes it.
