(See update at the end of this post.)
A while back I mentioned that Mirabilis.ca supports gravatars: if you’ve created a gravatar image, it will magically appear next to your name when you post a comment here, or on any other gravatar-enabled blog. That’s why there’s a flower beside every comment I post: that’s my gravatar. (For now, anyway. I’ll probably change my gravatar one of these days.)
So what happens if you post a comment and you don’t have a gravatar? Until now, a mystery man image has been representing you.
Well. That’s awfully boring, so now we’re using monsters instead. If you don’t have a gravatar, a monster image will be auto-generated for you, based on your email address. That way you all ought to have monsters of your own. Want to see your monster? Post a comment here, and your monster will show up.
If you like your monster, you’re set. If you don’t like your monster, go create a gravatar, and then your gravatar will replace your monster.
Isn’t technology wonderful?
