‘Wide’ Gravatars

As per this new entry on, Gravatars are being served up using ‘wide’, which is a distributed cache proxy. It should result in less strain being put on the main site. There might be a little funkiness, so let Tom Werner at Gravatar know if you encounter problems.


  1. I finally caved in an uploaded a gravatar…
    The big question mark was a big guilt trip

  2. Cool stuff, I just edited the plugin and so far everything seems to work fine! Groovy!
