I would say that judging from my post count I would be entitled to a custom avatar (available from 25+ posts I read somewhere). I thought: Well, let's upload me an avatar. Not!

Either I am in one of my extremly dim moods again (probability: close to 100%) or the information I read was outdated and it is not available at 25+ posts. Lastly, there could be a bug, which seems highly unlikely. For now I am opting for the first option, just wish someone would come in and lend the helping hand in my hour of dire need .
