Gravatar Disabled Due to Security Risk


Recommended Posts

Attention members,


If you have noticed your avatar not displaying on the forums, it's most likely due to Gravatar being disabled due to a security risk to users email addresses. Gravatar icons can be reversed engineered to reveal the user's email address which can them be sold to and used by spammers without the user's consent. To protect the privacy of all the STEP community members, this feature of the forums will no longer be available.
