    Hi Charles. The avatar system has been a bit broken, but I’m slowly fixing it across the site. If you post on the main blog, do you see your photo there? There’s definately one stored in your account, so you should see it. If not, could you go to the Profile link listed next to your name and picture in the top right after you’ve logged in, then use the picture selector there to choose which picture to use – this should force the system into recognising you have an actual avatar – and thanks for connecting all your social accounts, that will give you a wide range of avatar choices if they’re different.
