I think the idea of Gravatar.com is great. A profile which follows a registered user around ALL wordpress sites.
And MOST importantly FB, twitter, google plus etc services are VERIFIED.
WHAT I WOULD LIKE ...
I'm having a very difficult time with the typical wordpress & budypress profile set ups. I've looked around at various advanced profile plugins. I find the features at wp-admin/network/users.php?page=bp-profile-setup to be a bit limited especially with no verified services and no icons.
PLUS I strongly believe that we of the wordpress community don't want to tire out our users with constant profile set ups on individual wp sites. GRAVATAR already does that. I can't emphasisze how wonderful this idea of a one time profile set up for ALL wordpress websites is/could be.
I WOULD LIKE for the gravatar info to show up at wp-admin/network/profile.php and also on the front side of the buddypress profile at for example http://mysite.com/members/membername/profile/ Gravatar Hovercards do add a bit of the function that I desire but they have to be moused over and the user has to actually go to gravatar.com to see the complete pofile info.
Is it possible to have at least a gravatar widget in public profiles with as much or as little detail desired as a temporary solution. (Full blown integration would still however be much better)
Perhaps what I I'm looking for already exists. If so I'd appreciate a point in that direction.
Thank in advance
