Allow users to upload their own profile pic
Be given the option to upload a photo rather than having to use the gravatar service.

No one uses Gravatar from our user base. Everyone logs in with their email and as a result no one has avatars just like your own platform doesn't. Frankly I wish I'd new of this limitation before we went in contract with uservoice - I wouldn't have signed without this feature - the platform looks less engaging and fun. At renewal time i will not continue with uservoice if this feature is not fixed to pull avatars from user email profile

Nobody at my organization uses Gravatar, so not a single user has photo attached to their user profile in UserVoice. This honestly feels so impersonal and I wonder if it makes driving user adoption of the tool even harder? This seems like such a small thing that could really go a long way. I also find it slightly disheartening that this feedback has already been submitted and has been in limbo for over 2 years.

I actually don't mind the idea of using gravatar. Possibly having an easier way to update image without leaving the UserVoice portal might be nice, but having gravatar be the source of the image is a neat concept. I would like to see many other UserVoice features before this one.

I haven't seen the gravatar service in use for a very long time. I recommend pulling from their google if a user signs up through google with there to still be an option to change the photo.
