Gravatar - no activation - no support

  1. Hi,

    I have an wordpress account. I have sign in for gravatar but no activation mail came. So I wanted to ask there for new sending of activation email. But on gravatar, there is no contact, no support, nothing - so the only one link there is "contact us" which goes to this forum.

    Please let me know how to resend activation mail from gravatar.

  2. A Gravatar account is a WordPress.com account; they are one in the same. See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/gravatars/

    Gravatars do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. Do not keep uploading!

    For best practices for uploading gravatars, avatars and blavatars scroll down to below the video here: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/24/gravatar-avatar-blavatar/

    To enable Gravatar display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars".

  3. Hi timethief, how this is related to my question? I am not able to upload avatar, I am not able to use gravatar as I didn't confirm the activation email on gravatar. I didn't get this email (not in spambox, etc., I can get emails from wordpress) so I cannot confirm it and everytime I want to upload gravatar, I get an error message that my account is not activated.

    "Gravatar and WordPress is the same ..." I understand
    "Gravatars do not show instantly after uploading them ..." I understand but I am not able to go to place where I can upload it - so this next step is wating until I activate gravatar account.
    "For best practices for uploading ..." - the same like above - I cannot access the upload area, even I have wordpress account - my gravatar account (event it is the same like wordpress account) is not activated and gravatar site does not allow me access to upload gravatar.

    I just cannot find the place where I can resend the confirmation email.

    "To enable Gravatar display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars"."

    I don't have any blog, for now I don't need it, I just want to use the gravatar.

    For now I can do this:

    My Account - Settings - Gravatar profile - after clicking on this the sit will be redirected to gravatar.com where I just get informed that my account is not active.

    The same in My Account - Settings - Public Profile - Current Gravatar.

    In fact this means, if you get no confirmation email:

    - your account is blocked
    - you cannot resend the confirmation again

    I normally get the emails from wordpress.com so I think, there is no protection, no spam folders for the email :-(

    Please make sure you activate your account and grant Gravatar access. Click the button above to try again.

  5. Hi there,

    Can you check your email's spam/junk folder to see if the activation email ended up there? Please note that the activation email will come from WordPress.com, not Gravatar.

    If you can't find it, you can activate your account by resetting your WordPress.com password here:

    http://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword&wpcom_connect=1

    We have more information about troubleshooting this issue here: Gravatar: I Didn't Get My Confirmation Email!

    Please let me know if I can provide any further help with this. :)
