    not the 22nd day from the day you joined but the 22nd of the month, i.e. January 22nd.

    Not sure what the logic is behind the wait time for an avatar..

    I'm a moderator on one of the largest Desktop customization sites on the net, and we don't require a promotion to upload an avatar.

    Tho currently we are debating a mandatory IQ test for Posting privileges on the forums.. :lol:

    I was just thinking that sounds like a great idea. Then I was thinking but wait would I be allowed to post? :shock:

    We debated that at work. Abandoned after realizing the legal department would claim discrimination against lawyers.

    Why do you need to be promoted to post pics and use font sizes? The thing still comes up for me, and if I do preview the font works, but it won't come out on the acutal post.

    Any reason for this? Six more days of waiting is going to kill me if I don't find a loophole though the D*mn promotion stuff

    Why not just load up your old account :lol:

    Yes, there is a reason. They don't want spammers filling the forum with adverts and links to magic enlargement pills, etc. By sticking around and being active for a while, you prove that you are human and here for the "right" thing. It also keeps the Sneals of the world from posting naughty pictures when having a meltdown.

    And Cuttyshark, don't insult DM like that.

    What is crazy is that there is not a "Promote Me" thread like the add me threads.
