Anyone leaving a comment might notice that I’ve installed a plugin that displays people’s Gravatars next to their comments if they’re signed up. It’s really easy to get one, you just sign up and upload an image, then you use your email to identify yourself to Gravatar-enabled sites which grab the image from their servers.
I’ve always found it way more engrossing to have a conversation with someone when they’re visually represented somehow, this seems like the best way to get cool avatars in the comments without making everyone sign up just for this site.
The left side of my face hurts, but my cool new sneakers have grampapeal so overall things are alright.
[UPDATE: To hell with the damn Gravatars, their site is slow and chunks down the functioning of my whole site. I’ll come up with something else for comments.]
