Should be part of core WP!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Essential plugin for anyone that has multiple authors on their site.

Makes for a very nice bio, and you can amp up the display picture with some fancy CSS too. For example:

http://goringeaccountants.co.uk/author/nicky-larkin/

by adding this to your styles.css:

.avatar img {
border-style: solid !important;
padding: 2px;
border: solid 1px #EFEFEF;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #777;
-moz-box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #777;
box-shadow: 0 10px 6px -6px #777;
-webkit-border-radius: 8px;
-moz-border-radius: 8px;
border-radius: 8px;
}

Gives a great looking bio avatar!

Basic for improving WordPress privacy
By , for WP 3.9.1

I'm installing and activating this plugin, by default, in all my WordPress sites. It an elegant way to disable undesired information leaks to Gravatar.

This is great thing. I could easily create frontend avatar uploader on it's base.

Thanks Jake and the 10up team - just what I was after! I don't even have to look at the code knowing that you guys made it.

Thank-you!

After hours of screaming in frustration at trying to implement custom avatars, this worked beautifully and still allows a default avatar to appear for those who post without an account. It shows up in the WP toolbar with your profile name and next to comments. Thank-you so much!
