    Default How to get an Avatar

    Miami Steve would like to know how to post an avatar.

    I hope it's ok that I'm posting your question here for everyone to answer. As far as I know, anyone can have an avatar, even with your first post.

    I'm still trying to figure this one out myself!

    Even when I select "Edit Avatar" in settings, there is no option to actually "add" an Avatar.

    In edit avatar, there is a section where you can upload an image from your computer, or use one of our custom avatars. Are you not seeing that Jay when you scroll down?

    Unclick the dot that says Do Not Load An Avatar and save changes. See if that makes a difference? And let me know!

    I really wish that would work, but I've already tried that with no joy!

    I think maybe my account doesn't have permission to upload one, perhaps I need an administrator to unlock this for me?

    I'm confused

    Hey Jay, I have the same problem too. I was wondering if it was something to do with having less than 50 posts. Figured if 50 unlocked the signature, then it might unlock the avatar too. I watched the video of the developer showing how to do it, and it makes sense, but there's a whole half of a screen that's not displayed for me/us.

    Yeah I thought it might be something to do with having 50 posts, but I'm sure I've seen other profiles with less than 50 posts that have Avatars?

    I'm not sure what the issue is, I'm baffled! Hopefully one of the administrators can shed some light on the problem.

    Thanks Michael! I was beginning to think it was something I was doing wrong!

    Hopefully everybody else who was having problems can now upload one too.

    Lakers winning another championship was so yesterday. Maybe my new Avatar will help Italy win the World Cup again.

    Well good luck with that, that theory doesn't seem to be working for me! I am considering changing mine, especially after todays performance.

    The whole country is raging right now, the England fans were booing the team off the pitch. And hearing what Wayne Rooney said after the game, it's creating a rift in the squad.
