    No I didn't. Please don't be upset. I'm on my 9th pint right now and thought I should post more.

    Now its time for lots and lots of coffee. 3 days-no sleep-making money.

    Sorry for not reading the fAQ. My heads no straight right now. :(

    I think it must have changed from 50 posts to 100 posts because I can't add a custom avatar yet.

    Well I finally took time away from making money to read the faq:

    Avatars:
    In order to upload a custom avatar, you must be a member of the forum for at least 30 days and have at least 50 quality posts. If you do not have 50 posts or 30 days on the forum, you may still upload one of our standard avatars by clicking here. Note: it may take up to an hour or more for the forum to update your post count and status.


    Ok I got that so CHECK.

    Signatures You must be a member of the forum for 30 days and have 50 quality posts before you will be allowed to use a signature on this forum. In order to use images in your signature, you need to be a Donor or Jr. VIP. Note: it may take up to an hour or more for the forum to update your post count and status.


    That pasted weird, but anyway........CHECK.



    Where is my custom avatar. I could really care less about the sig.

    And whoever neg repd me, Its all good man. It is what it is.

    Sometimes there is a rift in the BHMatrix and a paradox incurs in which a user gets stuck in Newbie status.

    It seems to happen pretty often, and only a mod can fix it. I had the same issue and was able to get it fixed pretty quickly as it's a known glitch.

    Go to your 'UserCP'.
    Look under 'Settings & Options and click on 'Edit Avatar'.
    Scroll down to below the 'Pre-defined Generic Avatars' box.
    There will be a box there for 'Custom Avatar'. (If you meet the requirements to use one.)

    Check 'Use Custom Avatar
    Follow the instructions to upload your Avatar.
    (Make sure the file and image isn't larger than the max size or it won't work.)

    Hope that helps. :cool:


    Regular Members can have signatures, but they can't use images or links in their signature. You have to be a donor (Jr.VIP or Premium member) to include images or links.

    If you meet the requirements to use one.
    Go to your 'UserCP'.
    Look under 'Settings & Options and click on 'Edit Signature'.
    Fill in the 'Your Signature' box.

    For Donors there will also be a 'Signature Picture' box.
    To include a link in your signature if you're a donor, just use the bb url code for the link.
    Remember to check the forum rules before using links. There are restrictions even for Donors regarding what can be linked to. Be sure to also read this sticky thread in the 'Suggestions & Feedback' forum: Jr. VIP, Avatars, & Signature Questions?

    Thanks for being a decent person GreyWolf. Yea I got it figured out.

    I've been here a year and a half and haven't posted much because I've been reading and making making money, so I went last night and made enough quality posts to hit the 50 mark.

    You'd think that being here for so long would give you perks. Seems only posts count. I could post crap all day, but that's just not me. I've got too much work to do.
