How to Add Your Rugged (or Pretty) Faces to Your Commenting Avatars

By Kat Hannaford on at

While I'm busy beavering away on Commenting FAO Mk. II (no joke -- that's what my Word .doc is called), here's a quickie for anyone puzzling over how to add a picture to their commenting accounts:

You have a couple of choices when signing up for a commenting account with Giz UK: you can link your Facebook account with the site, so that beaming profile pic you use on Facebook is automatically ported to our site, OR you can sign up for a fresh new account, and upload an avatar by joining Gravatar.

It only takes one minute to create -- I just created a dummy account and timed myself -- so you'll be gathering comments regarding the healthy state of your computer monitor-pallor before you know it. Don't be concerned if your face doesn't appear on your comment instantly; it'll take a small amount of time for Gravatar to link to your Giz UK account.

Any more questions about commenting in the meantime? Comment below, or shoot me an email and I'll try and respond in good time.
