I go to avatar and for the life of me I do not see an option to upload one! Ayuda me por favor!
You have to have a certain number of posts and have been here >30 days.
You can find out more in this thread:
and this thread:
Go in CP
On the left it says edit picture. click it and you can upload
Ooops, sorry. Hey, I've been here over 30 days!
I'm not seeing any info about avatars in that thread? Only Jr VIP stuff....
Don't tell me I have to pay to have an avatar....
Yeah, I just uploaded a pic, but I don't see it appearing.
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.
you were able to upload a avatar pic without paying for jr VIP?! so it's only the 50 post count rule then???
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).
Ah the 50 post rule....
and 30 day wait...
So rvcasrfr will just have to wait till he reaches the 50 post mark...
Can't wait to see your avatar dude...
This is saved me from hours of research. I couldnt figure it out for the life me. LOL
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.
wow, I have tried doing the avatar thing about 4 times hoping something would change lol, but now I know haha thanks
... hehe might be a stupid question ... but what is an avatar good for when we can upload a profile picture?
You get a kewl (or downright scary) pic. to the left of your name?
