We decided to use Gravatar to host avatars with the new site for a couple of reasons. 1) being we don’t have to use up our space to host them 2) being the website and forums are 2 separate entities and using Gravatar makes it easier on you as you only have to upload it once.
To setup your avatar visit the Gravatar site. Setup your account - upload your image to your new Gravatar account - Done. Now any site you visit that uses Gravatar will have your avatar automatically.
If you have any issues don’t hesitate to contact D1G1TALC1PHERS for help.
