gravatar, which means globally recognized avatar.
Here is how it works: You upload your picture (or your favorite alter ego image) to the website gravatar.com from where we later retrieve your image using a cryptographic key based on your email address.
This way all the websites you trust can show your image next to your posts and your email address remains private.
Please personalize your account with an image - just register at gravatar.com (just please be sure to use the same email address that you used to register with us). The default gray image is generated automatically.
You can click the unanswered tab and then use the Category links on right side bar.
All major contributors to the site are eligible for this. But the prime requirement is one should not be disturbing others by unwarranted questions, poorly made questions with grammar mistakes etc. Those who have a tendency to help others might get a preference too. Also, since there are no strict guidelines, some genuine people might not be made editors but most of them will be. A minimum of 500 points, quality of questions/answers/comments etc. are also required.
