    I just hit 500 posts (Yay!) and was looking how to get an avatar below my name in the forums? Have I just missed it somewhere?

    It sometimes takes the forum a few hours to allow it once you've reached 500 posts. Also try logging out and back in again.

    It takes a while for the server to recognise your status. Check back in a few hours.

    Oh ok thanks, Ill check back tomorrow then. Should it just be in the sidebar where I select 'Add an avatar'? Instead of having to use the link you gave me?

    Yes, it will eventually be in the sidebar. The link I provided is a direct link to the page.

    You can simply use User CP > Edit Avatar if you do not want to use the direct link.
