I uploaded a photo and typed an email address but did not immediately earn a Photogenic badge.

For a couple of days, I thought that maybe my face was too ugly to earn such a badge ; )

Then I went to Gravatar, registered my email address, created an account on WordPress where I uploaded the same photo and suddenly earned that Photogenic badge!  : )

Was it the developer's intent that Gravatar and WordPress accounts were required? My first impression of the Edit Profile page was that just uploading a photo would have been enough. Perhaps by also typing the email address I created a condition where the upload alone did not count. In that case, you might want to refine the logic on that page.

That's great feedback. Currently the profile uses Gravatar. I agree that the ability to use an image directly uploaded on our forum would be a better UX but am unfamiliar with the feasibility. I'll discuss with our development team.     

BTW: Congrats in reaching 100 points. We'll be in touch regarding your prize.

Okay, thanks pgl.  

BTW: my summer vacation was in Portland where I enjoyed exploring the city.
