Why can't I upload a custom avatar?

    My IM life will not be complete until I can upload a custom avatar to BHW.

    I read the rules and it says you must have '50 quality posts to be allowed to upload a custom avatar'. Now what defines quality posts? I was thinking maybe if you'd been thanked 50 times but I then saw some young upstart with a low thank ratio similar to mine sporting his very own avatar and I immediately became green with envy.

    So what gives?

    PS I do not count this as one of my 50 quality posts :D.

    I read somewhere that BHW is having a problem with uploading custom avatars right now.

    It will most likely be fixed in the near future :)

    I uploaded a new one the other day seems fine to me!! Make sure you have the right size and dimensions or they will be rejected.

    You have not been deemed worthy yet. Once you have proven yourself as a valued member you will be accepted into the secret inner circle and allowed to upload your avatar.
