FAQ

How are Dramatars selected?

Dramatars are selected much like Gravatar does with MonsterID and etc. A hash of the commenters email address is passed to us and we randomly select pieces based off of this.

Do you work with Gravatar?

Sure we do! We play well with others. By default, the Dramatar plugin is set to make use of Gravatars FIRST if the commenter has one and then to use us as the default. You can however just use us if you like.
