Wordpress and Codecademy

Is Wordpress and Codecademy linked in any way? I have a profile picture for wordpress, and the one i have now for codecademy automatically came from that exact picture, because this isn’t even my picture. Any ideas?

I believe Gravatar is used by both Codecademy and Wordpress, which means your profile picture (or avatar) is synchronised across multiple websites when you sign up with the same email address.

And the url to your gravatar is:

https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/ + md5(your_email)

I’d post yours but md5 is reversible…ish Or maybe it’s not? I’m mixing things up here… It is at least helpful in attempting to guess it with brute force.
