Gravatar forces smae avatar everywhere?!
I am rather new to WP. recently I am very puzzle by the fact that my avatar used for the WP website appears on any other website I am logged in to, which also uses Gravatar. I have no option to chose a different avatar for other websites.
Apart from ovbious privacy problems which may occur on some websites, if I understand correcty, Gravatar forces us to just use one same avatar on any website that is linked to Gravatar and to which I log in with the same email. Is that so? If yes, this is an unbelievable reduction of freedom for the users to pick the avatar of choice for how they want to appear, with the only alternatives to either have no avatar, or to use different email addresses for different websites.
Or do I misunderstand how it works? Please advise how to deal with this. Thanks you in advance.
The blog I need help with is theintuitivecamera.wordpress.com.
Every WordPress.COM username account is also a Gravatar account and is associated with a single email address. Only one gravatar will be provided for each username account.
Separate accounts – Separate blogs
You log out, clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies, and then without logging in again, you register another username account under a different email address.
You log out, clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies and log in under the old username account.
Then you add the new username account as an Admin https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/ to the blog you want to transfer to it.
Lastly, you transfer the blog to the new username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account
