@JeremyBanks I know how to change my avatar but the thing is (as iglvzx said) The avatar is tied to your Gravatar account - but you cannot register to gravatar using open id -That's why I'm asking the question lol – Lynob Nov 16 '11 at 19:57

The avatar is tied to your Gravatar account (if you have one).

Try changing the email address on your user profile to one associated with your Gravatar account. That is how I got mine working. I use OpenID as well. – iglvzx Nov 16 '11 at 20:05
