Okay, so far too often we are asked "hoe do eye get a pict-chuuur!!!!one!!1" by our new members; if you read the FAQ you'd be better off -- but no, that's why you're here. You're the reason the FAQ cries itself to sleep. Wow, go you, are you satisfied yet?
Anywho, since I am a lovely human being I've decided to help you in your pitiful attempt at trying to get a pretty gravatar so we can't see what a truly terrible attempt God made at making your face.
Step 1 - Sign up, duh. Make sure you use a valid e-mail which is the same e-mail that you will use for your gravatar account. (Look, you've even got stuff bolded for you to help point it out - lucky you.)
Step 2 - Activate your account, yes? Check your junk/spam or whatever you call it box for your activation e-mail. If it's still not found, please file a missing persons report and begin a prayer-circle immediately. I'm sorry for your loss.
Step 3 - Go to Gravatar and using the SAME e-mail - guess what? Sign up again! To get to the sign up page, press the MASSIVE OBNOXIOUS BLUE BUTTON.
Step 4 - I'm beginning to see a pattern here; next verify your e-mail address from Gravatar; please search properly! You will not get any spam by the way, so don't worry your lil head.
Step 4.5 - You should get this too!
Step 5 - return to Gravatar and login! Then find your hella rad super kawaii desu ne sugoi image, which should be RATED G or y'know - not ecchi or porn you dirty, dirty heathen.
- Remember that .gifs will turn into static images - this is mine:
Step 6 - Click 'add new image' and rate your gravatar, it better be a G because I'm watching you. Don't think I don't see that hardcore yaoi doujinshi saved on yo' desktop, son.
Step 7 -
Take a siesta and wait a few minutes!
You can log out then in again, this sometimes speeds up the process whilst your shitty gravatar is evicted and replaced with your brand-spankin' new one.
Step 7 - Et voila, thank me later.
