    My avatar shows perfectly in my profile but it's not showing at all in any of the forums i reply to. Can anyone shed some light on this problem? My avatar is not bigger than the allowable size.

    The forum has this weird thing where you have to be "promoted" before it will allow you to post an avatar. You have to post a lot around the 20th of the month and hope the computer algorithm thinks you're a useful forum member. It's a terrible system, really.

    Hi :D

    You probably haven't been "promoted" yet based on your post count.

    After that, your avatar will show up.

    I have been too lazy personally to add mine...

    Thanks for the reminder !! :mrgreen: It's time to join the party OFFICIALLY!

    The whole promotion thing is weird to me. I was able to have an avatar even at 14 posts, someone even commented on the strangeness of the fact that I had a avatar. But the first forum I registered and posted on with EA was not the Simpsons.

    It's not based on ur post count, it's if your active around the 22nd of every month. So as long as your last post is on the first few pages on the board around the 22nd you shud get promoted :mrgreen:


    Before promotion when I started new level one members couldn't post images have an avatar, or even make the blue box around quoting sumone :lol:

    So being promoted was actually useful just to post images without asking the regulars to repost for ya (of course they didn't mind) :mrgreen:

    I don't remember when I got my avatar but it was around Dec 25th that someone noticed I had it with only 14 posts. I don't ever recall getting an email that I'd been promoted either, which I heard you do? That true?

    Nope; inbox has been empty, unless I was promoted waaay early on and didn't realize it, and deleted the message. Pretty sure I didn't though.

    it's an automated system, maybe you over looked it or didn't send one out :lol: At least you got the promotion :lol: :thumbup:

    She joins back in 2011. Promotion rules might have been different, then.

    Dunno about the "promotion" thing - I've been able to add an avatar & signature since I first started posting.
    Then again, I created this EA account for console gaming several years ago, so that may have something to do with it... :?

    Edit: Huh, "Oct 2011". Got no idea what that would equate to. And much later than the account creation date. Go figure. :?

    Same here, never got an email but was able to change my avatar as soon as I joined here. I'm a long time regular on another ea forum though.

    When I first joined this forum, not having an avatar wasn't the only thing unpromoted people couldn't do. So feel lucky that that's the only thing now.
