    I was wondering why... I'm sure if I make research I'll find 10 avatars that are used by hundreds of BHW members...

    is it a fashion or what? :p

    Because until you get 50(?) posts you cannot change your avatar to a personal one. Therefore you can only use the stock avatars which are the ones that you see around the forums.

    I can only select an avatar from the pre-defined avatars list, there is no option to upload one from my pc.


    EDIT: Thx for the info SuperLinks

    I have well over a 100 posts and I did try to change mine but every time I tried to upload a new one it didnt work.. I tried it one day for a half hour and gave up.


    I also.. just now noticed I am a "senior member" well my member certainly has the characteristics of a senior (wrinkled slow to rise) I don't feel all that senior..

    LOL i did not even care about my avatar first few months i was here just kept reading eveything that say [GET] $xxxxx in a day!...until i realized that im mostly online here compared to my facebook account.

    i did not know what is the requirement before you can change avatar or upload or put signature because by the time i tried to personalize my account i already made 100+ post LOL

    I waited a while before I could upload my own avatar think it was 100 posts

    I guess people choose an avalible avatar and then are too lazy to change it to a custom one later on when they can.

    But not me! :D

    dude

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

    maybe your uploading a file that is too big

    try this search google image and change search setting size to exactly 100 by 100

    Man, you shouldn't have said this, I'm (being a dj too) really jealous now. :(

    You must be a dj star to play there, how is your dj nick name (PM if you don't want to share it here)?
