One of the ways to personalize your posts here on the forum is by using an avatar. We have hundreds of them available for you to choose from, and once you have made 50 posts and have been a member for at least two weeks, you may use your own custom avatar.

To change your avatar, first go to your Control Panel

Click the link for Edit Avatar

On this page you can choose an avatar from one of the many different categories we have on the forum.

If you meet the criteria to have a custom avatar, you will see at the bottom of the page a form for entering a URL for an image hosted somewhere else, or you can upload an image right from your computer. Note that to not annoy everyone, custom animated avatars are not allowed.

Help! I've been a member for over two weeks, and I've made at least fifty posts, but when I go to Edit Avatar, it has Do not use an avatar selected (I can't un-select it), and the only options it offers me are generic avatars. The uploading window for custom avatars doesn't appear at all.

The system updates your membership "level" a few times per day. You should be able to change it sometime this afternoon or tonight.
