Can I disable gravatars and use Letter Avatars for all comments?
Yes you can. By default, Letter Avatars are used only for users without gravatar, but you can change that in user settings.
Can I change the font for my Avatars?
By default, Letter Avatars will be displayed in your theme font, but you can change that in plugin settings.
Does this plugin work with BuddyPress?
Yes it does, since version 2.5
Does this plugin work with bbPress / wpDiscuz
At the moment, no. This feature is planned for versions 2.7 and 2.8. coming out in April 2018
What does the user lock-in option do?
If you enable user lock-in (when random colors are enabled), each user will have his own unique color which will be used for all the comments.
How does the Font Auto Size option work?
If you enable the auto size functionality, letter size will be 75% of the avatar size.
I.E. If the avatar size is 100px, font size will be 75px.
