How can I display a photo as my User avatar
When browsing different web sites, you may notice that many users have a picture next to their name. These pictures are called “avatars”. Political Storm uses a specific type of avatar called “Gravatars” short for Globally Recognized Avatars. Unlike standard avatars, Gravatars follow you around the web and automatically appear when you post a comment on a site that supports Gravatars.
To create a Gravatar visit www.gravatar.com and register using the same email address that you used on Political Storm. As part of the process you will upload a photo and connect it to your Gravatar account and, after a short delay, your Gravatar will display on Political Storm.
