Human-readable chicken scratch

What you look like

Now I can see what you look like.

Last night I installed avatars on this site’s commenting system. Using a Gravatar, you can give yourself an avatar for this and many other websites. It works a lot like the avatars in forums like DJ’s, or like the Buddy Icons in AIM. Except they’re a lot cooler, since you can set your avatar once, and it’ll automagically work on a multitude of sites.

All you need is a picture and an e-mail address. Go ahead, get one. Then try it out on this site.

(And while I’m at it, get a TypeKey account too. If you sign in using TypeKey and comment here, your comment will be displayed instantly – no approval needed.)

Oh, by the way: I’m currently only accepting G-rated gravatars on this site, but if you have a PG-rated gravatar, I’d be open to discussion on this with you.


  1. See what I mean?

  2. Does it work?

  3. Apparently so…
