Just wanted to say “Thank you, Jake” for the awesome work you did. This is exactly what I needed for the goals I had set and it works just fine. Keep up the good work!

Good plugin - rotten support
By , for WP 3.9.1

Just look at the support tab to see how few issues have been resolved.
Have been using this plugin happily for some time. Recently something happened to make it stop working.

I tried to contact author through his website but when hitting the 'submit' button, the form was blocked for being spam (that made me panic and check the blacklists but came up clean)

I came back to wordpress.org to seek a solution but discovered that the author seems to resolve perhaps one in twenty posts.

There are other plugins. I'll move on.

Basic for improving WordPress privacy

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.

Great thing

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

Beautifully simple

Have a multi-author site, and for whatever reason one of the authors' avatar was not showing up. Installed this and solved the problem on the spot. Also nice if you want to use a different avatar for your site than you have globally, or if you simply don't want a wordpress.com/Gravatar account.

UPDATE: Plugin worked well until one of the 3.8 point releases, after which something broke. Had to disable in order for some of my users to show up on site. Am now using the Avatar Manager plugin.
