How to get an avatar to show up for your comments

A few people have been asking me how did I get an avatar to show up in the comment section. Actually, I should have probably posted this awhile back, we are using a 3rd party site for this. Gravatar is a site that allows you to change your avatar and it work with other blogs (SEGA Blog, Sonic Stadium).


  1. Go to
  2. Sign up (make sure you sign up with the e-mail you use to post here)
  3. Post away.
(Note: It takes awhile for your new avatar to show up)

Gravatar uses your e-mail to choose the avatar. So if you use the same e-mail on another wordpress blog, it will show the same avatar. So lets fill in those avatar spots, no excuses.

    That’s funny. I’m already signed up with Gravatar with another site, but still get this badass Space Invader-esque one.

    Hum, are you using the same email address? I just changed mine on there and it works. I’ll look more into it.

    Ah, here we go.
    If any fallow SegaBitohiles are having similar issues, the site seems to be set on the “G” rated level, so just adjust the rating on your avatar to the G level.
    Thanks, though.
