Now that we've got non-gravatar profile pictures, we should have the same functionality in careers. It still only allows gravatar pictures.

There's an old pre-native picture question asking basically the same, but seeing that it has an accepted answer I created a new one.

@WillCole any news on this? – woz Jun 24 '14 at 14:46
I want the same feature. It is available in SO, but not in Career 2.0. I don't want to use gravatar because it shows my picture in every Wordpress blog when I leave comment or question despite I want to share my picture or not. – sergtk Jul 16 '14 at 1:08
Why does such a basic feature take so long to be implemented ? I don't want to create a stupid Wordpress account just to put a picture on Careers. – user230564 Sep 11 '14 at 12:50
@Will almost three years later, any updates? We'll also take a "No" as an answer – Shadow Wizard Nov 22 at 9:53
I am very annoyed how Gravatar doesn't work. Please, give an alternative! – Mikhail Golubtsov Nov 23 at 7:09
@MikhailGolubtsov finally we got official response, see Laura's answer. (I got notification having a bounty, but you didn't) – Shadow Wizard Nov 23 at 15:13

Sorry for the lack of response here. We've always intended to do this, but it turns out that fixing this was more complicated than simply copying the implementation we have on Stack Overflow.

Our development and design resources are stretched pretty thin at the moment, so I can't make promises that this will be resolved immediately or in the next couple of weeks, but this pain point is still there, we're still aware of it, and I am confident we'll eliminate it in the next 6 months. Thanks for your patience – bear with us just a little bit longer.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. Time to retag as status-really-planned? :-D – Shadow Wizard Nov 23 at 15:08
