    In the FAQ and in a few threads, I've noticed that after 50 posts (and 30+ days registered) I should have a few things.

    - I cannot set a text signature (I don't have the option, and when I direct link I get "Sorry, you are not permitted to have a signature.")

    - I cannot set a custom avatar (1 1/2 months old, 180 posts, 36 thanks, when FAQ and threads say 50 posts + 30 days?)

    - My "rank" is still "Newbies". At 180 posts, looking over http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/2255215-post36.html, shouldn't I be a Junior Member by now? (I never received my Regular Member, either).

    Is there another requirement that is not in the FAQ or the guidelines?

    Anyway, I am just curious, in case if some of the threads/FAQ files need updating.

    That is probably my next step. I just wish to make sure I am not missing anything before I go all "bug-a-mod" on someone. :D

    Old Post. My issue resolved itself with time (60 days worth, to be exact ;) )

    The FAQ needs to be updated. Signatures/Avatars/rank/etc need 60 days, not 30 days.

    It wasn't a big issue, but misinformation nonetheless.

    I think that's only for sigs which advertise a product/service.

    As far as I know, those such as my own are permitted.
