Gravatars are back up?? UNPOSSIBLE

Sdtrk: ‘Not forever’ by Vitesse

Just so you know, I tripped over a site where a coding bloke has actually managed to craft a succesful plugin for using Gravatars, which fills me with a special kind of joy. I’ve had so much trouble getting the myriad plugins related to that to function properly, that for the longest time, I just said ‘fuck it, the site will just run without them’. Those of you who remember the original version of ‘Shouting etc etc’ on Blogger probably fondly (?) remember all the Gravatars spicing up the comments section. Now they’re back in action! Woo!

So all of you who have Gravatars, i.e, SafeTinspector, PB Shelley, et al, should probably get round to their site and, ah, refresh the image you want to use. Or something? I’m not sure why my Gravatar works and yours aren’t, but then I had to reload my image on Gravatar’s home page, and it seemed to work a treat.

And for those of you who don’t have a Gravatar, if you don’t create one, you get to enjoy being a Synthetik for a while! I have a surfeit of mostly Doll-and-Gynoid-based Gravatars especially for guests, and they’re pretty fantastic. But I would say that.

For those interested, that site would be geek ramblings. Give it a look-in!

EDIT (2.54 am): Okay, so now my Gravatar won’t show up. Guh.
Bollocks to this; it’s an hour past my bedtime. I’ll see to it later

EDIT (25 Oct, 10.46am): Now my Gravatar’s back? *shrugs*

    Mine is attached to my old gmail address and not my current safetinspector.com address. But for you I’ll put the old address in. It still works, after all, just sends it along to the new.
    viva gravatar!

    did it work?

    guess not.

    I should probably note that Gravatar.com’s had on-again-off-again problems since, well, about a year. Also, I heard they just got bought out very recently, and frankly, I hope their new acquirers iron their shit out. Gravatar’s a wonderful idea, but rather error-ridden. It’s like having a time machine that only takes you one month into the past.

    Keep trying! It’ll appear eventually! Or not, who can say?
