Introducing Avatar Wall: Show Your Avatar to the World

Today we turn the focus to you, the loyal readers of Webdesigner Depot…

Through the Internet we get to know you through your websites, blogs and even more, your avatars. Avatars appear in most blog comments these days and they truly enhance a comment with each person’s unique personality and design.

A few weeks ago, I was preparing to do a round up of avatar designs around the web to showcase here on WDD, when I had the idea to take this a step further by making a full website for this.

Today I’m happy to bring you the results by introducing Avatar Wall, a brand new website dedicated to showcase avatars from around the world.

 

How to get your avatar on Avatar Wall

If you don’t already have an avatar registered with Gravatar, you first need to register one on the Gravatar website and then go to Avatar Wall to submit it. Both services are completely free and you decide how much information you wish to display.

Avatar Wall: The Website

The site is free for anyone to display their own avatars. The designs are as varied as any other design: from simple photo portraits, to illustrations, cartoons, logos, you name it, they’re all there and they look great.

Avatar Wall is really simple to use. When you enter the site you’ll see the last 36 avatars added, with all the other avatars sorted from last to first. You can rate avatars, and sort them based on their rating or random.

Search for your own avatar to see if you’re already there. If you posted a comment in WDD, chances are you’re already featured there. If it’s not there, go ahead and submit it.

If your avatar already appears there, you can edit the information and even add a short bio about you (up to 160 characters). This is a great way to let others know a bit about you as well as promoting your own blog, website or Twitter account.

At the time of this writing there are already over 600 avatars, so don’t waste any time and add yours today!

    It’s an absolute piece of creativity. It looks great. However one thing I noticed one serious bug that needs to be fixed soon. While you click on “Submit your Avatar” link on top right corner of the page form fields ain’t visible in the lightbox if using Google Chrome. As a whole its great effort and very very nice idea. All the best! Its for sure a great Easter gift to design community.

    Were you the one who posted something on the Outlook Track-It program too? I think it was at least this website. It was that program that you add to Outlook for followup reminders. Well, Thanks for that, if it was you.
