Much like Gravatars, WordPress.com now has plain old Avatars. The new feature was just added today, and already is getting rave reviews.
On your profile you can now upload an image to be associated with your account, also known as an avatar.
We’re still rolling out the places these will show up, but for now you can see them in the comments section of this blog.
Why not upload an avatar and then leave a comment to show it off? Any ideas for how we can use avatars?
Update: You asked for it, you got it. There are now avatars in the latest posts, tag surfer, and my comments pages.
Update 2: There are now avatars in the forums.
This is a free addition to WordPress.com and so get uploading. Not that anyone really wants to see what you look like.
