when I log in as admin i get the following 'admin' icon: http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/e64c7d89f26bd1972efa854d13d7dd61.jpg?s=32&d=wavatar
is this actually intentional?
it looks like gravatar is returning a random image if there's no account associated with the user email? which is probably a bad thing and should just fall back to the stock umbraco icon.
The gravatar image in question is generated by an MD5 hash of the default admin email address ("firstname.lastname@example.org").
Personally I'm not a fan of the "wavatar" default type, I think it looks unprofessional. IMHO either "mm" (mystery-man) or "retro" would look better.

Yep, it was the unprofessional look I was getting at. I would presume most content managers don't have gravatar accounts, so showing a random one in the backoffice looks unprofessional imo.
my vote is for a stock umbraco icon, or at least a config option to drive this
Very valid points, for now I've switched it to mm, which is more professional :) will see if we can fall back to the umbraco logo
Thanks Per. The default (fallback) image can be passed to Gravatar using the 'd' parameter. Although it does need to be a publicly accessible absolute URL - which is issue for localhost development and those behind a firewall.
The alternative is to use 'd=blank' which will return a transparent image, then via CSS the 'default' background-image could be the Umbraco logo?
