    No. You must reach 500 posts.

    No...the 500 post rule still applies to demis/contributors. The only ways to get an avatar with fewer than 500 posts are to be selected as a moderator or to win one of the rare avatar contests.

    It should come into effect quickly, and you can keep your status by PM'ing a god.

    Let me see if I understand...MR still isn't recognizing you as a Demi? (I thought that had been sorted out and you had already had a god fix your title.)

    Have you tried logging out and back in to get the system to take a fresh look at your status?

    Your title has been 68040 for at least half an hour (that's when I visited this thread last)... :confused:

    Picture 1.png

    ...or are you referring to becoming a Demi in the first place...? I think one of the gods needs to push some buttons and pull some leavers...

    Is your credit card any good? ;)

    Just kidding - it may be worthwhile to send a quick PM to Doctor Q or arn for their opinion. Probably don't need to work it out through this thread, as we can only guess.

    Seems like only Doctor Q is on duty at the moment:

    PM him and things should start happening... ;)

    That's why. Direct debit take 3-5 business days to change from the 'pending' status. Once the payment clears the back and into MR's account, PayPal sends the IPN to the server and the account status change happend.

    Smarty!

    Mine changed instantly, but I paid with a CC via paypal.

    Just needed the appropriate gender change.

    I thought you had a widget for that... you mean you actually have to press the button yourself...?!? How many mice do you wear out in an average month...?

    :D

    It's actually a big conspiracy, where none of them are allowed to tell you the benefits, until you are one yourself. Kind of the reverse of advertising really. :D

    You mean aside from the warm fuzzy feeling that you're helping to support a site that you spend a fair amount of time on? ;)

    This is what the MR FAQs publicly admit.
