Uploading your own avatar
For a long time OngoingWorlds showed a Gravatar for a user’s avatar, with no option to change it. Until now! By default you’ll get a unique freaky-looking monster, but now you can upload your own.
Edit your profile and you’ll see a new option to use Gravatar, or to upload your own image.
Once uploaded, you’ll be asked to crop the image.
Your newly-uploaded avatar will show on your profile, and next to every post you create!
Or use Gravatar. Whichever!
Gravatar is a globally recognised avatar that binds to your email address. To create one, go to gravatar.com. OngoingWorlds will use this by default, and if you don’t have one, Gravatar will automatically give you a unique weird monster-looking-thing.
The example uploaded avatar in this article is Thor reimagined as a manatee (of course!). There’s loads more superheroes reimagined as manatees here.
