You know, you coulda used the search function to find out what the requirements are to get an avatar.

Be that as it may, lookie here..... http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99279
and who's to say I didn't :dunno:

that would be fine if there was some consistency in the procedure.

first it's after 1000 posts,
then after 100 posts,
then folk with under 100 posts I see have avitars.. :dunno:

..plus someone could be here for a long time and not have "x" number of posts.... so once again -------> :dunno:

Then again, someone could be here for a long time, have more than enough posts, and still not give a sh!t about having an avatar.

The annual pilgrimage to Santa Barbara, on the other hand...

Here's the deal: The present software configuration calls for a "promotion" to
"avatar enabled" once a member reaches the 100-post mark. This is
significantly less rigorous than the previous requirement of 1,000 posts...
The primary reason why you might see members with less than the required
number of posts who still yet have an avatar relates to the fact that at one
point several years ago we "promoted" all current members at that time,
regardless of post count. As owner/admin I have been know to grant
exceptions on occasion based on exceptional requests/submission of
exceptional avatar images... :)

Sorry for the confusion.

Happy belated Christmas, btw.

:p

Assuming you used all variations of the spelling of "avatar", if you had done a search, then you'd have already found out the answer. Or at least found out enough to ask a more succinct question about the process. Not ragging on you, but if you did do the search, your original question was just too vague and open-ended to indicate that you had. At least that is how I interpret it.

Some of us have asked that the one true thread that describes the procedure be stickied so that folks could find it easier. Alas, this has not been done.

However, when you find the old threads on the subject, you can glean the whole sordid history of how the requirement was 1000 posts, then it was dropped to 100 for one of the 'Fest gatherings, and then made permanent at 100 posts after that. You'd have also gleaned that Jon can be bribed, in any of several ways, to enable avatars for folks that have not yet reached the 100 post milestone.

And like many things here on the 'Fest, and in real life, there are RULES (hard and fast, break 'em and you get banned or other bad things befall you), Rules (hard and fast, but you don't immediately get banned or hammered on) and rules (kinda sorta hard and fast except when they are soft, squishie, and glacialy slow to take effect and the punishment is slap on the wrist), and even then there are exceptions.

So, what don't you understand??????

It's not about the avatars, it's not even about the cars, although that is what brings us all together. It's about the friends we make here, and the friendships we realize in real life.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

Or you can make 27 post a day like Jever and you will have an avatar in about 4 days!

Oh, and poting a . as a reply to many threads to bump post count is NOT a good idea.
