    When I go to the CP, I get the option for pre-selected Avatars, or none, why can't I upload an avatar I've designed? any ideas anyone?

    because they seldom do custom avatar days, in which you can upload em.

    You just have to be patient.

    Basically, all avis must be moderated. These mods have other jobs, and don't have the time to mod avis. There's a custom avi day about once every year (18 months?). The last one was I think Valentine's Day. Don't expect another one for a while.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we got another one once we hit 10,000 members, which won't be too long from now.

    Every two years?!?!?!

    Why even waste the time then, either have them or not.

    I am sure people here would volunteer to help moderate such an easy task, and have jobs.

    Count me in.
     
  10. LOL, ill volunteer to mod custom avys also.

    1. It's a lot more difficult to moderate avatars than you think.
    2. They're custom and SPECIAL. Giving them out at any time takes away from their special status.
    3. It's not every two years. They're at least yearly IIRC.
    4. This is a children's site and we have to take every precaution we can to ensure inappropriate content isn't on here.

    Be a member of the 'gym for a long time, and remain active and you'll eventually get a custom avatar. What's the big deal?

    I like Holon Mentor, he looks angry because he lost his engine to the format rotation.

    It's not a big deal but I like to show some personality with my avatar and it is nice to change it so it doesn't get boring within a few months instead of a year or more.


    Like I said before:

    I gave 4 reasons why the avatars are the way they are. Did you ignore that? WHy repeat a question that's been answered?

    Because the Mods and Admins on this site said so. Be happy they even give you the chance to GET custom avatars at all.

    Excuse me, but didn't you ask "what's the big deal" and I replied with my opinion isn't that what a discussion on a forum is about?

    I offered my help as well as others, is that wrong. I don't remember any moderator or administrator answer this question on this thread. They run this forum and I respect their rules.

    I don't understand your condescending tone.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    That is fine if they said so, I never said I was unhappy, mad or upset etc...

    I feel Like I am being attacked here. :confused::confused::confused:

    Or what about post #1,000,000? We are less than 60.000 from that point.

    That is what I'll do. I am very active on this board, so I don't think I'll miss it. Do they put a message on the front page when the day comes?

    I am actually working on a .GIF for my avatar in 100x100 pixels. It will be sweet! It will include my profile picture but flying away! :biggrin:
