Where has my avatar come from?

I mean, this is me, but it’s not the avatar I have used for either my ffflowers profile or my ffflowers shop appearance on Folksy so how did it end up here?

Mine is my gravatar so I’m guessing discourse pulls avatars in that way.

Ah, of course! I use this face for just about everything except ffflowers so I was a bit confused, it could have come from anywhere. I think I’d prefer it if we could use our Folksy avatars but maybe that’s just because of my split personality…

You’ve a profile somewhere that you can upload your own avatar to, I noticed Hazel has changed hers. I’m still on my phone so haven’t gone looking for where to do it yet.

Oh that’s better, I feel properly dressed now! Thank you. If you click on your avatar top right then it’s there under preferences.

Oh thanks, saves me clicking everything in sight later when I change my mugshot.

Thanks for the info, it saved me searching, I’ve now got my avatar up :smile:

I can’t get my Folksy avatar to load in Preferences. I don’t have a “Gravatar” and I want to use my Folksy avatar… it hasn’t pulled that across and it won’t let me load another.

As a side-note, it would be helpful if the “load” feature for avatars and backgrounds had guidance notes - eg. allowable format, size etc.

I’m a bit confused!! I want to change my avatar, I dont want this pink square thing, but I cant work out how to change it, if I click on it I just go to a page that shows all my posts, can anyone help?
