It would be nice to be able to set a profile picture without using Gravatar - I might want to use the same email address also somewhere else and don't want to have it dragging the Gravatar picture along forever.

Also I'm using the Jolla account to log in to Together so it is not very easy to just use a throwaway email address with a Gravatar just for Together.

And anyway it seem just too much hassle to register to some outside service to just set a profile picture vs just clicking on a button and selecting a local image.

Also, the site's usage of Gravator infringes every user's privacy. No matter whether they are actually using Gravatar themselves.

Good point - yet another reason to make it optional if not outright opt-in. I think this is even more important with all the privacy marketing around the upcoming Jolla tablet.

I can uderstand that it is handy being able to "outsource" stuff like this to specialized third parties like Gravatar but it might not be the best solution if users privacy is in danger.

This question has already been handled: https://together.jolla.com/question/19872/disable-3rd-party-tracking-on-tjc/ Jolla did not care. (So much about privacy and Jolla.)
