Mods, please sticky this so we might have a decrease in the "How do I get a Custom Avatar?" threads. Custom AvatarsIf you are new to the PokeGym forums, then you may have noticed that some PokeGym members have Custom Avatars under their username. You may have also noticed that you are unable to figure out how to upload your own personal Avatar like some other members have done. ”Why can’t I upload one?”The reason you cannot upload or use a Custom Avatar is because PokeGym rules allow for Custom Avatar uploads ONLY on special Custom Avatar days. ”When will the next Custom Avatar day be?”These days are not on a consistent schedule, and do not occur in any special pattern. The last (2) Custom Avatar occurred on: 4/1/05 (April 1st, 2005) 2/14/07 (February 14th, 2007) So in truth, no one knows when the next Custom Avatar day will be. ”Why can’t we upload Custom Avatars whenever we want, like on other sites?”The PokeGym has thousands of members on its boards. When an Avatar is uploaded, a Moderator must approve of it before it is displayed on a user’s profile. PokeGym is family oriented and all content needs to be PG because many children visit the site. By limiting the days that Custom Avatars can be uploaded on, the staff can make sure no inappropriate pictures appear as someone’s Avatar. It’s a long and tedious job for the staff to check every Avatar, and approve it, so the Custom Avatar days are far and few. ”Now what do I do?”Wait. That is all you can do. Stay active on the forums and eventually you will come across an announcement for a Custom Avatar Upload day. When that comes, you’ll get the chance to upload your very own Custom Avatar. ~Patience is a virtue young Kriketune~.
