We reprogrammed the site to only allow us to load them manually because WordPress comes with Gravitar built in already, which is a third party software that likes to hijack whatever profile picture you load and plug it in literally everywhere “for” you. It’s an infosharing app with ties to WordPress. It’s not unethical exactly but we felt this was an invasion of privacy since members did not have a chance to opt out. And, since we have members who use pen names specifically to protect their identities we did not want to be the source of any issues. So if you (or anyone else) would like to submit a profile pic I will happily load it. Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
