As a site administrator you can add a default avatar for commenters who don't have their own yet. This adds a nice touch to the Disqus embed to make it feel like a part of the community.
To override the default Disqus commenter avatar, go to your Disqus admin, click the Settings page and then the Advanced sub-tab. The option will be under Default commenter avatar.
- Keep it simple. Use an image that anyone in the community can associate with, and that doesn't distract from their comment.
- Avoid showing anything that represents a specific person or brand other than your own. Users reading through the comments might confuse the default avatar with something that the commenter chose.
- Don't put a picture of yourself. To change your own avatar, see How do I update my avatar?
If you prefer the original default avatar, you may download the one below and upload it in your Disqus admin again using the same instructions above.
