Why isn't my Avatar showing up in my posts?

Prev1
I think you have to be promoted to have an avatar show up. Also necessary to post images.

Gotta post regularly for a while and hope that they catch you when they're doing monthly promotions. I think it's around the 20th of the month.

    You need to be "promoted" to have your avatar show up. Monthly promotions are on the 22nd of each month. You get a PM. The promotion seems mechanically(?) generated a bit random, but the trend seems to be that if you post frequently between about the 15th and 22nd of the month, chances are good. But not certain.

    Was wondering the same and honestly I think it's a little complicated. What the heck? Being promoted? It might be super easier if they put like a goal or something. I mean like 50 responses in the forum and being here for a month maybe. It makes more sense to me.

    But anyway, I hope I get "caught" in the forum once they decide to "promote" new people... ugh! :?

    You and me both. I've been on this forum over 3 years and still don't have my avatar showing. There's gotta be something I'm doing wrong :cry:

    I've been in here since 2012. I guess I don't post very often, though. Still, it would be nice. Ah, well.

    I just joined this forum but reading these posts is a little discouraging. Its only a few more days until the 22nd maybe we should keep posting in here about how they should let us display avatars and we'll be promoted :?

    A system based only on posts on some special dates makes absolutely no sense at all!!!
    and would be insanely unfair.
    If they have any extremely special forum rules like then it is absolutely necessary with a clear explanation on how to get promoted in the "Avatar Control Panel" in the "My Profile".

    I have notes what everybody that has be talking about that they had just got promoted all seems to just have gone past 80 posts.

    It seem a lot more logical to have a system that will promote people after they have reached a specific number of posts - That seems to be the way most forums work.

    Here is looks like the limit is set to 80 posts.

    It may be right that they are doing all the promotion on a specific date of each moth if they don't have a automatically forum promotion system.

    I will soon find out as this is my post no. 80 :)

    Do you really think EA is logical? Back when I was promoted, I had under 50 posts, as have others. there are also people with over 100 posts that have yet to be promoted. It just happens that the day of promotions is on the 22nd of each month, and apparently the system checks for a certain amount of activity in the days before. If people are active in the few days prior, (not just a 1-2 posts) they seem to get promoted regardless of their total post count.

    I'm not saying this is the way it should be done, but it is how EA appears to do it.

    I think it's a bit daft that you have to be promoted to get an avatar. Think I've been a tapped out forum member for 3 years. Yes I don't post that often, only post if I have a problem or want to take part in something I see as exciting LOL. Not that it isn't all exciting but sometimes I might not understand.

    But I do love it here.

    I'm glad you asked as I was wondering the same thing! I thought it wasn't showing up due to some lacking in my "awesome" computer skills! ?

    Just got promoted today (Yay) and have an avatar on my account but it doesn't show. Is there a set amount of time or size restrictions on avatar sizes?


    Edit:


    Never mind :)
