    Did you try to change your picture in Gravatar?

    Please follow these steps:
    In order to have an avatar on this forum, we will be transitioning the use of Gravatar over from the Battlelog forums. If you have not set this up previously, I will outline the steps in order to have one on your account.
    1. Go to https://en.gravatar.com/
    2. Sign up with the same email account you use to sign into these forums (aka your EA account email)
    3. Upload an avatar per the forum and Gravatar guidelines
    4. You are done, just wait for the systems to sync up and you will have your gravatar enabled here

    Yes, I followed those steps a few hours ago Just got back home and the profile picture has not been changed though.

    I've updated it for you, those who uploaded an image before gravatar was first switched on here seem to get locked out, and the only way to force the change is manually, so I've gone ahead and done it for you :)

    Gravatar keeps telling me there is no user with my email address.

    so, have you registered with your email address at gravatar?

    I assumed my email address was already in the gravatar system...
    Ok, so I actually already have a Woldpress account that I can sign in to Gravatar with, but it was registered with an other email address.
    I don't really have to create a whole new Wordpress account just to have an avatar on some EA forum, do I? Tell me it's a joke.

    think about it logically. it looks up the email address you used here...... so.... you need to have it registered there.....

    so yes, to use gravatar, you need to register.

    Sorry, but I see no real logic in Battlefield forum needing a 3rd party website with separate registration for using avatars. Like it's 1998, not 2018, out there...

    Could you please assign me an avatar without me having to register a second Wordpress account?

    because gravatar feeds the avatar across the battlefield sites, including battlelog.

    you need to use gravatar for the av.

    Hi,

    Forum could not update your avatar automatically because it was changed/removed manually by a moderator due to violating of the forum rules. So, I just fixed that and now it should be changed/updated automatically.

    Thanks!
