Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

It took me several days to understand why my avatar does not display.

It's when I provided my email address in my profile that my avatar automatically appears.

It seems to me it is not indicated anywhere, and I'm not normally a Gravatar user.

Maybe indicate this information under "Change picture".

The tooltip on the "Change picture" link reads "your gravatar is associated with your email address", but that's maybe a bit weak. – Mat Oct 16 '11 at 13:17
