I have implemented an avatar system into the blog. Since Automattic has aquired Gravatar, as soon as they have all of their setup done, all the WordPress.com users will have avatars on this blog. If anyone abuses this feature, I will ban them from the blog and delete all of their offending comments.
I’ve implemented this feature using PhotoMatt.net‘s two-lines-of-php method.
So, what are you waiting for? If you want an avatar on this site, go here and create one, my blog will do the rest of the work to get it.
P.S. I implemented something else that has to do with comments, you get a cookie if you guess it!
