It would be nice if we can choose if we want our gravatar to be an identicon, monsterid or wavatar instead of only the boring identicon.

This should be a preference in the pref tab on the profile page.

I think it would be a nice feature.

You can already create any picture you like and use it with Gravatar. I don't see the point of having multiple default picture services.

While I agree, identicon, monsterid, and wavatar are all options offered by Gravatar if the user hasn't specified an image. –  Kyle Cronin Sep 5 '09 at 23:01

I see. Still, it seems like if you're going to go to the trouble of configuring a particular default image service on Gravatar, you might as well create your own and use that. –  Greg Hewgill Sep 6 '09 at 8:14

I find the other auto-generated avatar types incredibly ugly.

I don't know, I think the monsterid flavor might be particularly appropriate for, say, meta.stackoverflow.com. –  ベレアー アダム Sep 6 '09 at 12:29
