vanillicon and Gravatar

I noticed that the default avatar has changed to via http://vanillicon.com within the last few days. This service is great! I really like it.

My questions are;

1. Is vanillicon plugin planned for the release to public?

2. Can vanillicon and Gravatar plugin exist together? Because it seems that gravatar is no longer available here. Twimg avatar for twitter users is still alive.

Thanks.

    1. Vanillicon is planned for release to the public. We are leaning towards making it the default behavior for avatars. Why? Because we want to move away from lists of users to grids of user icons and people that don't set their avatars make the design look bad.

    2. Vanillicon and Gravatar can co-exist. Since Gravatar accepts a default url it can be chained with vanillicon.

  • Thanks for your answer, @Todd.
    Vanilla seems to be getting better and better with each release. :)
  • How long till we see this plugin? Is the code available on GitHub for anyone adventurous enough to intergrate into their own forum?

    It isn't yet, but a casual look at its use on this site tells me the image URLs are probably just
    echo "http://vanillicon.com/".md5(email or username).".png";
