    Depending on your method of sign-up you may notice we make a best guess at where to source your Avatar from for
    in-game. Next year we will update the account settings to make selection of avatar and allowing for multiple sign-in options (Facebook, Google, email(s)).

    Currently this is how it works:

    Sign-up with Facebook - we will use your Facebook profile image, if you don't have a FB profile image will show default avatar
    Sign-up with Google+ - we will use your Google+ profile image, if you don't have a G+ profile image will show default avatar
    Sign-up with Email - we will use your Gravatar, if you don't have a Gravatar image will show default avatar

    For players that registered with an email and do not have or know what Gravatar is you can read more about it on their site, but basically you will have to register the same email you used for FRHD on the Gravatar site and set up your avatar there with either a rating of 'g' or 'pg'. Images with a rating of 'r' or 'x' will not be shown!

    You can sign up and read more about gravatar here: gravatar.com

    Have any questions, let us know!

    Like I said in an other thread, it's not uploaded on the playing website, even if I'm sure mail adresses correspond. Screen Shot 2013-12-15 at 20.58.18.png

    How about me? I was already registered.
    Could you just make my avatar the one that I'm using here?

    The email that you have registered with your FRHD account, you would have to sign up for a gravatar account with your same email. If you already have a gravatar account with a different email you can add the one you used for FRHD to that one.

    Unfortunately we don't plan on pulling FRHD avatars from forum.

    Why don´t you just make it uploadable from the FRHD page by clicking on the profile picture or something?

    Using avatars from gravatar, facebook or G+ allows us to rely on their systems to filter inappropriate images etc.

    If you don't want to use FB or G+, signing up for Gravatar is easy and used on a lot of other sites.

    Are you having an issue signing up for gravatar?

    1) Signup to gravitar with the same email address you used to signup with freeriderhd.com , if you used facebook to signup, use that email address
    2) Go into your account settings on freeriderhd.com, select gravitar.

    I made sure that the e-mail is the same but the profile picture still didn't change.

    We are looking into this, it has to do with caching . Stay tuned.

    Hate to bother you more, but it doesn't seem to be working again.

    I set an avatar about two weeks ago and still have my old one. I actually forgot about it until now...
