Finally, some word from Tom about Gravatars. It looks like the new service, Gravatar 2.0 should be out in early February.
The wait for Gravatar 2.0 is almost over. The new site will be released in early February with an all new interface and some great new functionality.
When the new site goes live, I’ll send a one time email notification to all account holders. If you don’t currently have an account, then leave a comment here (with your correct email address) and I will send you the notice as well.
Over the coming weeks I’ll be posting screenshots and other tidbits to keep you updated during the final phases of testing and deployment. Be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss anything!
Thanks for your patience, support, and enthusiasm. I look forward to a new and better Gravatar for everyone!
Some people are wondering if it might be too late, but I think Tom is smart enough to make it work, and since nothing has come out to really replace his service, I think Gravatar 2.0 will have a long and successful life.
