  1. Re Avatar from Gravatar.

    In the signing up process you are asked to create a "user name" and a "password". I am not sure how the user name gets used afterwards. As you can see my Blogonym is Sir Hugh and my real name is Conrad Robinson. I would not want to compromise either of those by having them substituted by the Gravatar user name, or is it only used as a security measure when you sign into their site?

    @Conrad R. (Sir Hugh) - It's a security measure so that you can manage your settings. Your image is linked to your email address, your name as displayed on a blog such as this is the one that you type in when you make a comment.

Have your say - submit a comment
