How does the user avatar system work?
TACLAN Connect uses Gravatar as our avatar provider.
What is Gravatar?
An "avatar" is an image that represents you online—a little picture that appears next to your name when you interact with websites.
A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. You upload it and create your profile just once, and then when you participate in any Gravatar-enabled site, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you there.
Gravatar is a free service for site owners, developers, and users. You can sign up for Gravatar here.
