Is there something about gmail accounts that prevent you from registering them with gravatar accounts? I want a custom avatar in Battlefield 3 which makes use of gravatar. If I go to the gravatar site and setup an account for my gmail account, it sends me an email with an activation link and when I click on it, I get taken back to the gravatar site where it asks me to login. I do so with the same info I just registered with and the site tells me invalid username/email/password. I've tried dozens of times. If I use my old college email (which I try to avoid as it will be defunct sometime here in the near future) gravatar allows me to register and activate just fine with no issues. I just don't get why. I sent an email to gravatar support on March 30th and never heard a word from them. Since the old email will be going away, I hate to just add the gmail address to the working gravatar account as a second email address. Also trying to use the gmail account as the main because I want to make sure it works with Battlefield 3 which is A)linked to my gmail account and B)the only reason I'm getting the gravatar account in the first place. Sorry I wrote a small novel there.
Would appreciate some help/insights
