In our continuing effort to upgrade the website, we now added support for Gravatars
(Globally Recognized Avatars) to comments on Articles and Recipes. Gravatars are frequently used on blogs to show a commenter's avatar, and are widely used in the blogging community.
If you do not have an avatar selected in the forums, and if you have registered a Gravatar, it will show up next to your comments on the recipe or article page.
Forum pages will only show forum avatars, however. After we upgrade the forums in a few months, we will work on implementing Gravatar support for the forums.
