View Full Version : How many posts until I get an Avatar?

Nov 8, 2011, 06:28 PM
This forum is weird because I cannot gauge my post count to determine how many posts I need to get an avatar.

Any insight?

Perhaps the FAQ (http://guides.macrumors.com/Help:MacRumors_FAQ#How_do_I_set_my_avatar.3F) and checking your user profile?

From the FAQ (http://guides.macrumors.com/Help:MacRumors_FAQ#How_do_I_set_my_avatar.3F)

How do I set my avatar?
Avatars are small images that display alongside a user's name. This is a feature that is reserved for established users on the MacRumors Forums. We require a 500 post minimum (user title 6502a or higher) before you are given the opportunity to upload your own custom avatar. A few users were given avatar privileges before this milestone because they won a forum contest.

Once you reach 500 posts you may not immediately be able to upload an avatar. The privilege is added automatically when the forum system does routine processing, so check again in a few hours. The delay is normal so please do not contact us to report it as a problem on the same day that you reach 500 posts.

This is how many posts you currently have.

This is how many posts you currently have.

So, based on your current position, and your rate of "achievement", I predict sometime January 18th, 2012.

Have a nice day. :)

Demi-Gods still have to have 500 posts to get an avatar.

After a certain amount of posts ex. 50,000 you should be able to whatever name you want instead of like the preset ones.

It would take probably at least 7 years for me do achieve that :D
