I tried to update my Avatar and the choices are limited and the custom avatar option is not available.

Yes, custom avatars are turned off. We do that to keep the forums clean and easy to read - otherwise they tend to get filled up with blinking gifs and such.

Can you take out the "Note:"?

I think getting rid of this bit of text will help with some of the confusion:



I'm sure you guys have bigger fish to fry, but seeing that "Note:" had me hunting around for a while before I found this post.

A simple
HTML:
<p style="display: none">Note: if you have a custom avatar....<p>
should fix it without affecting anything else on the site.

Sorry to bump such an old thread but it looks like quite a few people have uploaded custom avatars within the last couple weeks. I just went and only saw the pre-selected avatars and no option for a custom one. How are other users doing this?

They have been assigned those avatars by the staff. Users are not able to assign customer avatars themselves.

What you need to do to get an avatar is complain about it, just like you did here! ^^^^
😂
Complaining about custom avatars, gets you a custom avatar then? Perhaps in a parallel universe. :screwy:

Most of the people have custom avatars anyway, so why not enable it for others? I know it doesn't do anything, but on any forum I've ever been before you could have a custom avatar and it's kind of cool to put something you want instead of a car badge.

Custom avatars are earned. They are not set up so you can choose your own. I’m sorry.
