    Don't tell me I have to pay to have an avatar....

    If I visit your profile page I can see the pic. Also, there is a little note next to your name now.

    Yeah dude I just searched avatar on the forum and you have to have 50 posts to have any sort of avatar and to have a custom avatar you have to pay to be Jr VIP. Pretty weak to have to pay for a custom avatar, but whatever.

    Ha! yes, it's avatar pic, not profile pic.

    I was distracted as there is a rattle snake on my roof. I can hear it slithering.

    Not sure on that, from what I read you needed Jr. Vip. But apparently I have a custom one now as well after checking it out.

    Maybe if you send a donation to the forum and then got on EC's good side you could have an avatar before your time.

    1. Click on User CP (User Control Panel)
    2. On the left under Settings & Options click Edit Avatar
    3. Be sure your image is no larger than 100 x 100 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller)
    4. Click on Use Custom Avatar and either upload from your computer as in Option 2 or host it on another image hosting website and enter the URL at Option 1

    5. Click on Save Changes

    New rules require you to have 50 posts or use a stock Avatar which require 0 posts.

    Hope that helps.

    I think I was wrong initially guys, it looks like you don't need to be a donor or Jr. VIP to have a custom avatar; just have 30 days on the forum and 50+ posts. It will take the forum about an hour to update your info before you'll be able to upload.

    Update: I've added this info to the FAQs section (finally).

    hahaha yeah, I was in the same boat! There used to be a FAQ that had all the answers to questions like this, but it was wiped in the last hacking I think and the admins haven't replaced it yet.
