Why don’t I see my picture when I post on MakeUseOf?

Charles Yost January 18, 2013

Every time I post something, I get this weird picture of a gear or something with it’s tongue sticking out. I have a picture when I check my profile, but get the toon one when I post. Am I missing something here?

    It depends on what you used to log in, the image that will appear can be the one on your facebook, twitter or google+ account

    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.
