What Are Those Question Mark Icons?

This article was written by in Administration. Add a comment.

If you read the comments left by readers here on Consumerism Commentary, you may have noticed a question mark icon (pictured at left) that appears next to some visitors’ comments or personalized icons that appear alongside mine or those of a few other people.

These icons are Gravatars. Simply sign up for an account on gravatar.com and upload your favorite icon. You can use the same one you use in the MoneyBlogNetwork forums if you like. Once the icon is approved, you’ll add a little character to your comments here on Consumerism Commentary and on many other blogs that use them.
