How does Campus Gaming Network make money?
We make money by donations from our users through a service called Buy Me a Coffee. If you like what we do and want to donate to help with development costs, you can visit our Buy Me a Coffee page.
Where does my profile picture come from?
Your profile picture is managed by Gravatar . It is linked to your email address or your last known IP address. If you do not have a Gravatar account tied to your email you are given a default randomized profile picture.
How do I change my profile picture?
To change your profile picture, you need to make a Gravatar account with the same email address you used to sign up for Campus Gaming Network. Once you have created a Gravatar account you can upload a profile picture there and it will automatically be used on Campus Gaming Network and any other website that uses the Gravatar service.
Will you allow uploading of profile pictures without Gravatar?
Maybe sometime in the future, but for right now, to keep costs down we are taking advantage of their service.

I can't find a certain game, what gives?
