We still use gravatar, but if you don't have gravatar we now fall back on robohash, much better in my opinion! Some of them are pretty funny as well

Great idea, I was too lazy to use gravatar but I kinda like the robot I got! :-)

Oh yeah thanks Tom.
I hugely disliked the "random geometrical hash based" avatars.

I don't know why, but really I founded it lacking in personnality.
Robots are funnier. There are also the monsters, who can be an interesting change to apply from time to time (switching between the different default proposals).
Maybe you could even allow the site users to choose in their profile what type of default avatar to use, as in the end it is just a matter of parameter in the calling url.

That's great Tom. They'll be easier to remember.

Possibly could do that idea, there are a lot of more important things to do first though I think! But I'll keep it in mind.
