how to get avatars


Question 1: So i created a (non openID) user but how do i associate an avatar to that user or how a user add their avatar.
Question 2: I created an openID user using my gmail email. Then i when in the users page that list all the users. I was able to find my new user there. However, it doesn't show the first, or last name or the user's email address it only show the strange long google url. To me that user is anonymous as i don't even know it's name.
Question 3: when creating a new user there is an Id multiline text box. Why have a username and id (shouldn't id be for the internal system use). Also it seems that we can create users with duplicate user names.
I appreciate all your help. Thank you

A1: the email for the user must have a gravatar see
A2: unfortunately with openid you can't always get all the information you need to display the name
A3: id is used to support multiple openid accounts for a single user, the id is unique, not necessarily the name
