I wanted to add an avatar to my profile here, but I don't feel like creating an account at this gravatar thing.

Is that the only option for setting an avatar image on here?

While trying to ask a question, I got the following error message:

Oops! Your question couldn't be submitted because:

  • Why am I getting this message?
  • What can I do to get the system to accept my question?
  • Can you be more specific?
  • What are good resources on how to ask high-quality questions?

  1. There's no option for non gravatar icon profile: Can we use non-gravatar avatars?

  2. Regarding the quality standard it generally means that your question is not well written and thus won't be easily answered: What can I do when getting “It does not meet our quality standards”?

When you're faced to such broad question, have a look at Meta.StackOverflow, there's a good probability that your question has already been asked there.


Now, it is possible to:

  • Upload an image from your computer
  • Use Gravatar
  • Use Identicon
