It might take a day for the system to process your avatar once you reach 500 posts. I mean, you already waited 6 years...

Sometimes it takes the forum software thingy a bit of time to catch up with the fact that you've passed 500 – you may have to wait a while it updates itself.

It shouldn't take too long, so don't fret.

You might try logging out and logging back in and see if it forces a refresh of your account.

For those who don't understand this "log out" concept, there's a button in the bar with the User CP, FAQ/Rules... etc way at the right. I've never touched it but I've heard it can be useful.

I am reading this correctly? My avatar will not show up on my posts until i've made over 500 posts?

Yes, having an avatar does require 500 posts, and it is not the same as a profile picture

And yes, it does take a little while for the servers to recognize the change to 500 posts and allow access to the avatar controls

Looks like it kicked in for the OP

What is the difference between avatar and profile picture?

Profile pictures appear on your profile page, while avatar's appear next to your post.
