Hyvor users can set their profile picture. For guest commenters, there's a bunch of avatars to select.

You see Gravatar everywhere on the web, because of WordPress. However, I don't think we'll use it because

  1. There is a lot of large databases for md5 reverse lookups.
  2. The default picture when the email is not found isn't appealing (I don't know if it's possible to change the default)

And, we don't want to require emails. It's completely up to the owner of the website (can be changed in the console).
