    Hey, so I'm kind of new to the forum I guess and thought I'd read through some of the FAQs etc and one thing I noticed was that you need a minimum of 500 posts in order to have an avatar.

    Now I'm not bothered about avatars, I've only just found this out. But I'm just curious to know why it's so high? Most forums I'd imagine have perhaps a minimum requirement of maybe 25 or 50, but 500? That seems crazy steep.

    Any reason why? I'm not asking to change it, just wondering why is all.

    I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you to keep the secret, well, secret ;)

    Here is a recent thread where some mods/admin folks comment.

    Bottom line, yes it is completely arbitrary and they are not going to change it.

    Welcome to the forums.
