Learn about Gravatars

This site uses Gravatar to display avatars. if you already have a Gravatar account attached to the email used for this site, then it will display your image on forum posts; it can take a few hours before the link is established the first time.

What is an Avatar?
When you post, you’ll see the default avatar beside your name. You can change this to any image you wish (providing it’s decent!). Many people have a picture of themselves, or their family or anything that represents your ego or character.

Changing from the default avatar

As already stated, we use Gravatar for our profile images. The Gravatar site stores your avatar, and matches it to your email address. This allows you to have a single image that many websites can use without you needing to add it or change it on each site.

Since this site knows your email address (through your profile), this site can pick up the avatar stored with Gravatar.

If you are not already signed up with Gravatar, then follow this link to register your email address and avatar picture with them. Tec-Tocc will then pick up that avatar and display it against your post. It can take a few hours before the link is established the first time

Confused? Don’t worry – if you’re happy with the default avatar against your name, you need to do nothing further !
