Gravatar, the global avatar service which was acquired by Automattic will now be a core feature in Invision Power Board forum software. The software will have this feature in it’s upcoming version 3 and here’s what IPB has to say about -


Gravatar Support

Gravatar is as service that hosts your avatar so you can have the same avatar on the various communities you visit. It also allows you to centrally update your avatar and have it show up all over the web. You just sign up on their site and then enter your email address you registered with Gravatar in IPB 3.0′s settings area.

This is indeed a wonderful addition as most people prefer to use one particular email address while signing up at forums and thus they will be able to avoid the upload of avatars in various forums, not that uploading of avatar is daunting task, still it reduces one silly step of uploading the avatar every now and then.

It sure is a boost for Automattic Inc as well, their extra services like Akismet, Gravatar are also stepping up the ladder of success just like their core software i.e. WordPress.

Thanks to Gravatar Blog.
