    Since Tony has changed his Avatar from the little red and blue thing to a Roadster wheel I am inspired to try one.

    The button saying "Do not show Avator" in my profile is stuck on. How can I change this?

    Isn't there an option below to select "use a custom avatar" and upload one?

    Perhaps dsacks only gave admins rights to turn on Avatars?

    Should work now. Try it out.
    Thanks for pointing this out. I am still getting to know the system and it seems
    that it came like that. I always assumed you would be able to make one.
    Now it all makes sense that only moderators had avatars.
    Thanks

    All of Tony's old posts have had his Avatar replaced with his new image. Looks like we all get our posts with our new image.

    Thanks dsacks6!

    Holy cow...
    Seeing a 2007 post with a Teslive 13 icon is a bit disorienting.

    I also don't have access to add an avatar or a signature footer, or else I just can't figure it out. Is there a trick or minimum membership activity to get that?

    No real trick. Certain privileges are blocked for new members. You just have to be around and participate for a bit longer. Patience grasshopper. :)

    Patience isn't my strong suit regularly....but it seems to be even LESS so since I order this dang car :biggrin: and I can't wait for it to get here! (6.5 days and counting!!!) So I've been lurking on this forum and wanted to 'brag' about my car with the rest of you folks, by adding a signature with my car details, and a picture of it as an Avatar.
    I've spent way too many hours on this site, which I see is a common theme among others too. :smile: I totally understand a minimum activity level or some other minimum for us "grasshoppers" to have to go through as our rite of passage, but I do wish that amount was published so we knew what we were aiming for. I suppose, after reading some of the issues around this, that its to keep us for post pollution. But that doesn't mean I have to like it :redface:

    Thanks for the quick reply. I've learned a lot here already, and look forward to the continued resource.
