You may have noticed a tweak to the comments at F1 Fanatic. Some users now have small pictures, usually called avatars, next to their names.

These are Gravatars (??globally recognised avatars?) and you can get one yourself which will appear on this site and any other site that uses the same system. They also work on the F1 Fanatic Forum. Here?s how to get your own Gravatar.

1. Create a (free) account at
2. Upload an image to your Gravatar account and associate it with the email address you use when commenting on F1 Fanatic.
3. The image should appear next to all your comments, including old ones. It may take a short while to appear after you first upload it.

Gravatars are classified to ensure they are suitable for different age groups. Only Gravatars that are suitable for all ages will appear on F1 Fanatic.
