The 500 post requirement has been removed, anyone can have an avatar.Huh... either they haven't gotten around to implementing the 500 post-count requirement for uploading avatars, or they haven't updated the FAQ thread yet. Cuz I'm not supposed to be able to have an avatar yet
Right you are! Shortly after the migration it was still 200 characters, but not anymore.Also the signature character limit is longer. Again, unsure if that's intentional or if they haven't re-implemented the limit yet.
