The result set for the users API does not return the URL for the user's Gravatar.

For reference: http://api.stackoverflow.com/0.8/help/method?method=users


The gravatar url can be calculated from the email hash.

string gravatarUrl = "http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/" + emailHash + "?d=identicon&r=PG";

More gravatar info.

  • Or, include the size to get a larger icon: ?s=128&d=identicon&r=PG

As part of the response you get the email hash, which you can use to construct the proper request to Gravatar:

  "email_hash": {
    "description": "email hash, suitable for fetching a gravatar",
    "values": "string"
