    Hi there,

    You'll need 500 posts before you can treat us to a peek of your avatar.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned that you need 500 posts yet.

    500lbs worth, to be exact.
    No gagging.
    No throwing up.
    No washing it down with water.

    Aww come on J, don't mess with the new-comers. Next thing you know, your PayPal will have $50 more in it, and you'd have access to his account...:eek:

    Has anyone said that you need 500 posts yet? I'd hate to be redundant. I'm just anal about being redundant. Have you checked the FAQs? I bet they say you need 500 posts. You do need 500 posts, you know.

    I'm pretty sure the Forum Rules specifically state you should spam the forum as much as possible to get your post count up. Good luck!

    Has MR removed the restriction that vegans can't have avatars?

    There never was a restriction, so far as I'm aware - it's just that Vegantars™ are smaller and paler than meat eating 'tars so you've probably just missed them. They do tend to fade into the grey background somewhat... ;)

    This is the best "How do I get an avatar?" thread EVER.

    It's going to look downright bizarre if the OP ever changes his sig though. Will look as if Jessica is some kind of crazed meat person, then everyone starts bashing vegans for no apparent reason. Personally I hope that happens and some confused Newbie posts on this tread in a year or two.

    This is pure win, since I just got done reading the Vegan thread.
