Wonder if this might be a good way to stem the avatar question... The "Edit Avatar" screen itself seems like it can be a bit puzzling to some folks. I wonder if a few words could be added to the right of "Edit Avatar." For example... "Edit Avatar -- 500 posts required to use this feature" I did a forum search on "avatar" and I got 20 pages (i.e., 500 posts). Only 1 link on the first results page was relevant -- and it wasn't a link to the FAQ page or the "sticky" on the Site and Forum Feedback page. As a member who lurked before I joined, I knew 'twas better to search before posting -- but I think some people get intimidated by the results and go ahead and post. In cases like the inevitable "Where's my avatar?" query, I wonder if some of the confusion could be avoided by a tweak to the configuration screen itself.
