    Hey, I don't really know where to post this other than here but for some reason I don't have an option to upload an avatar onto my profile.

    Are there a certain number of posts I need to reach first? Is there something I need to do? =/

    That may be the reason, as long as you followed the guidelines for Avatar dimensions and file size.

    I looked in the Rules thread and found nothing about how many useful posts a member must have, but I know it's written around here somewhere. Or at least it used to be.

    The section to add an avatar isn't even there or showing at least, so I basically have no option to upload an avi.

    :edit:

    Lol thanks Poky, just saw your post so that clears stuff up :D

    In addition to 20 posts, you need to be a member for a minimum of 48 hours. You just joined today so wait a couple of days and then you should be able to upload an avvie.

    Thanks a bunch, that makes alot of sense.

    Thanks Poky for trying...but yeah... it wasn't as easy as you thought because it is more restricted than normal.

    The change doesn't happen instantly, there is a script that runs a couple times each day. Be patient. If you still can't by tomorrow then there may be a reason to worry. Otherwise, it'll be enabled in due time. :)
