    I know you need a minimum of 500 posts to have an avatar, and I reached this goal about 2 days ago and it isn't showing up for some reason.


    (Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this)

    Hm. Have you tried logging out and back in?

    Are you sure file isn't too large?

    You're listed as an avatar user, so all looks good in this end. Make sure the size and format are OK.

    Could you post a screen shot of your avatar page if the above suggestions don't work?

    jsw, when I first got my 'tar I couldn't upload it. A mod or god uploaded a random one for me and then I was able to change it on my own. Not sure how they did it (or who did it, it was a long time ago), but wasn't able to do it on my own.

    If you post here and attach the avatar you plan to use, we can check its format and size for you.

    I followed grapes911's suggestion and "cleared the pipes" as it were. Please let me know if you can set one now. And sorry for the 'tar - I have few small images handy on this computer and picked one of the iChat ones.

    Just to be clear: that's not Stridder44's choice of avatar. It's one I uploaded to see if it would work for him.

    Edit: never mind!

    Were you on the Edit Avatar screen in your User Control Panel or reading something in an FAQ or Guide page or thread? What message did you see that implied that animated avatars don't work?

    I noticed, I thought I was losing my mind when Stridder44's avatar kept changing every time I refreshed the page! :eek: ;) :D

    I still think it's my good buddy Spike. We used to collect bounties together.
