What happened to just uploading an image of yourself or favorite pic from your computer?

I really cant be arsed entering emails then registering with a site just to get a personalized avatar.

Anyone else think its a bit much? lol

Why should they be "arsed" to host your image?

Well Im a member, on the other 8 sites Im mod of they put the usability of there site and members first, without those, sites are dead!

Just seems a bit of a extreme way to 'host' a pic, look at the members here, 1 in 50 have a personalized avatar.

I'll stick to my pink gay robot thanks :P

Pink?
That looks more like a purple to me.

Anyway when you think about it Gravitar is actually a time saver.
I have accounts with other forums that use it, and now if I want to change my avatar I just do it in one place.

Besides the way they set things up is actually kind of cool.
They use your email hashed as an identifier. That way anybody can use the system free of charge.

yes I know what your saying, but I dont really want to sync my avatars, I use different avatars fors sites, like a sound editing site im on,
its me with dr dres headphones on, or a win 7 theme site its me with a paint brush on my head lol

like im saying I prefer to add a avatar that defines the site im on,
sorry but not a fan of gravitar :(

so then this would be only site with your gravatar so then you'd be defining yourself here not elsewhere
just upload the custom pic you want to the gravatar after registering.
