Thread: Avatar problems?

  1. #1

    Question Avatar problems?

    Hello all!
    I'm new to the boards so I am still poking around and learning the controls.
    However I cannot seem to figure out my Avatar.

    Under "User Control Panel" in "Edit Avatar" ;
    All I see here is the option, "Do not use avatar" already chosen for me and the
    buttons "Save changes" or "Reset fields".

    Generally I would think choosing the "Reset fields" option should bring up the options to 'browse my computer' and use an image from my computer, or a URL link even. However neither button (regardless of how many times I've tried clicking it.) will pull up anything new.

    I was just wondering if this has been a known problem in the past, or if anyone else has had these kind of problems?
    -- And of course any way to fix it?..

    Thanks!
    (and sorry if this is the improper place to be posting this, but I didn't see a newbie help section.)

    I think you have to have so many posts before you can post an avatar - maybe 50? It hasn't been that long ago for me, you'd think I'd remember. Someone will clarify, don't worry.

    And, welcome!!
    Forever my boys, Bogey and Miko. All my love till we meet again.

    Ahh.. Yes, that may be it indeed.
    Still haven't found anywhere that specifies that, But I'm sure your right. After all..
    how many computer programs can truly hate me out there?... ...

    Well, anyway, If that's the case I just wanted to know.
    I'm not one of those people who goes posting up a storm simply to receive posting counts (kinda dumb in my opinion.) Anyway, I'll just sit back then and wait till I'm old enough. lol, Maybe by then I'll make a special avatar to use for this site.

    Thanks I appricate the newbie help! ^_^
