Just passed 100 posts and still no avatar...

....I cannot find the option to upload an avatar photo in my User CP. I thought 100 posts was the magic number?

Have you gone into the settings and tried uploading one?

The options are on the left hand side, when in the private messages page, not the account page.

Shakey,

Do you have an option to edit a profile picture? There should also under settings be an option to edit and avatar. That's where you can upload a pic to. Be aware that if it's too large it won't automatically resize, so you need to make sure the pixel dimensions fit the specification.

I think what confuses most people is that the account settings are actually in the private messages page, not the account page.

Please PM me your MasterCard number. My records show you owe $2480 and are severely past due. Your prompt attention to this matter would be appreciated and will maintain your post count in good standing.

Excuse me DSX, but when were you appointed treasurer of the E9X forum? Besides, if you're going to shake Lark down - the keys to his Boxter seems like a much more reasonable thing to go for rather than the MasterCard.
