    I'm new and didn't find an option to upload an avatar. Is this disabled for new users?

    Yup, I figured that out!

    Varelse, how did you get so much stuff into your signature? Are you allowed more as you post more?

    Nope, I don't have any special privileges for the signature, I tried really hard to make it fit
    Just keep each line within the 65 character limit.

    Potion, with your average 1 post / month ratio, you'll get your avatar in 1 1/2 year

    I feel like the little engine that could... trying to find things to write quality comment on rather than just churning out dribble just to get to my 25 posts to be able to unleash my avatar...

    I don't understand; what reason there would be for making custom avatars a priviledge to be earned? Given that they offer a degree of personalization and humanization - isn't restricting their use adversely affecting this forums popularity?

    Or is this like a speak easy thing?

    Okay, I get it - you want to stop freelancers from making drive-by's.
