    @timethief It’s better to upload an image that is 512 x 512 pixels or larger for Gravatars so it will look the best in the widest range of uses.

    Thanks for the information. I’m NOT choosing to upload a large image because I intensely dislike the size of the gravatar images which are blown up for display on our Profile pages. I cannot fathom why the size must be so large when displayed on our profile page. I did email support about this and Lance told me that the size of the image appearing on the Profile page could not be reduced to 128 x 128 pixels and requested I upload a larger image so the image quality could be improved.

    IMO the textual information on our Profile page ought to be by far more dominant than the gravatar image is. I may be vain but I’m not a narcissist. I dislike the image size so much and the overpowering presence it creates on our Profile page that I will NOT complete my profile information at all.

    I don’t think I typed my email with typos and stuff. So really, does that mean the blogger needs to delete my comments?? If not, what can I ask to change in order to fix the error from not showing my uploaded gravatar?

    I still don’t understand how this has just happened overnight without me doing anything.

    Please check your settings on this page > Settings > Discussion

    An avatar is an image that follows you from weblog to weblog appearing beside your name when you comment on avatar enabled sites. Here you can enable the display of avatars for people who comment on your blog.

    Be sure that you have selected “Show Avatars” also confirm all other settings in that section. Then click “Save Changes”.

    Hi timethief.

    I’ve done all that and it still doesn’t show in the comments section, it was fine the other day and I have not been anywhere near it, it just disappeared. I have checked at the Gravatar site too and it is linked to my correct email address. It actually shows on the site in the top left hand corner and is showing on posts I put on here, just not on this section.

    It’s like TT said:

    It’s a Gravatar issue. You have to talk to Gravatar.

    I agree there is something weird going on with avatars too, but I don’t see how it can be a problem at gravatar’s end in my case.

    Mine shows up fine, both in here, on my profile page, at my own blog and a few others I visit. But when I visit one specific person blog it doesn’t appear there, I get one of those generic monster things instead, and I’m not the only one.

    She assures me she hasn’t changed any settings, but there’s at least 3 of us, including the blog owner, who are finding our avatars no longer show up there, yet other user’s avatars still show up fine.

    IMO that’s an indication that the blogger in question (not you but the woman your refer to) needs to contact gravatar Staff aka as wordpress.com Staff. :)

    I’ve suggested that, but she’s rather rushed off her feet at the minute, so I don’t think she’s gotten around to contacting anyone yet, which is why I thought I’d ask while I was here.

    What I really don;t get though, is why would some avatars work fine, but others that do work everywhere else, not work on just on her blog?

    and the new one only shows on blogs i haven’t commented on yet…why won’t it?
