How do I get a picture next to my name when I comment? Do I need to register somewhere? Does this site have any sort of registration/user profile system?

We use the DISQUS commenting system, which allows you to register for a universal profile that will work across all websites that use DISQUS. You can upload an avatar and create a personal profile that will be visible to people who click your username in the comments.
Additionally, DISQUS gives registered users a Tumblr-like “dashboard” where you can see replies to your comments, active conversation threads on sites that you follow, as well as recent comments from other DISQUS users that you’ve chosen to follow.
I see no need for any user profile/registration function beyond DISQUS at this time.
