I am trying to edit my profile on NuGet. However when I press "Edit Profile" button it navigates to the page where I can only change email. Thus how one can change the display name, avatar... ?

Unfortunately NuGet home page does not have "Contact us" nor "Support" links so I have to ask it here.

Thanks.

The gallery currently doesn't allow you to do so. Feel free to file a feature request here: https://github.com/nuget/nugetgallery/

This is odd. As you can clearly see on the image below the JQuery package have two owner avatars set:

Thus if the feature does not exist how did they managed to set the images?
Does this mean that there is a "back door" for the profile editing? :o)

The image is automatically queried to your gravatar image. Visit http://gravatar.com to learn how to set one.

As per dotnetjunky response the feature indeed does not exist. If you really keen you can create your global profile with http://gravatar.com and your name and avatar will be retrieved by NuGet runtime automatically. This is what I did and it works.

However I am not completely sold on the global profile idea. Thus I do believe there should be a real profile management impemented on NuGet.

I have logged the feature request and hopefully NuGet team will implement it.
