Avatars Now Supported On Profiles and Comments
Metalunderground.com now supports avatars for registered/logged in members of the site. The implementation is achieved using a third party service called Gravatar.com, which stands for Globally Recognized Avatar. So in order to have your avatar appear on metalunderground.com, you need to do these things:
- Create a free account on Metalunderground.com if you don't have one already.
- Create an account on Gravatar.com using the same email address shown in your Metalunderground.com account.
- Upload your desired avatar on Gravatar.com and assign the image to the email address used on your Metalunderground.com profile.
- To avoid any inconsistencies, it is recommended to type you email address in both Metalunderground.com and Gravatar in all lowercase.
- Your email address is still never exposed within the HTML of Metalunderground.com or Gravatar. It is matched by comparing an MD5 hash of your email address, which is an irreversible encryption that generates a fixed-length string.
- It may take some time for your avatar to show up on Metalunderground.com due to caching issues, so please be patient. If your avatar is showing up in your profile page, but not on comments after a day or two, please leave a comment about it here.
- Pornographic avatars are strictly forbidden. They should not be allowed by the system, but if you do happen to get one to show up here, it is grounds fro instant revokation of your account and banning.
Avatars are a great way for our members to express themselves and to identify each other, so add yours today!
