Cause Chams and mods dont want noobs coming here and putting whatever the hell they want for their avatars. Instead, they have the special numbered badges.

As far as permission goes, show that you're intelligent, savvy, cool, whatever and you'll get the privy.

That was an awesome mod (the car PC) - I'd be surprised to see you go too much longer without an avatar. Be patient :)

i don't know if you are being sarcastic..but if i wasn't suppose to post this i apologize and the moderator can take this post out...but the reason i asked here is because i thought i just didn't know how to put an avatar...then after i posted i got the answer that i need permission.

if you have questions or comment about the car pc post it under that tread so other people can read about and we can keep everything organized...by the way i am not rich...and i own the car...so i didn't have to ask for permission to anybody...on top of that the entire project wasn't that expensive...and i can put the entire car back together with orignal parts that i took out from my car.. xcept for the hole under the dashboard that i used to pass the wires for the lcd screen...but you can't see it because it's under the dashboard so technically the car is not "ruined"and i think by having a computer i increased the car value!! :D

Out of curiosity, does one of the mods PM you and say "ok, you can have an avatar now"? I'd like to get an avatar up someday as well, so I'm curious.

Thanks

No.

That is why before you do something like ask (which you shouldn't do), you should check your profile to see if its been enabled.

One reason some folks seem to get avatars faster than others is because they were commport members (or at least I think thats a reason).

One reason teamwork isn't gettin' nail for asking is bacause he asked here - in this folder. So it kinda dropped under the radar of certain members.

The bottom line is don't ask for an avatar. If you get to 500 or so posts and don't have one then......hmmmm.....maybe you might make a hint - but don't ask.

Code:
Example Hint:

Hi soandso,

While I was contemplating my lack of an avatar in this forum I found a place that will let you download the boot disk you wanted


See what I am sayin? And don't go overboard about it either - or it will take even longer.

Anyways - believe it or not, the avatar is no big deal.

But check your profile.

ok to be honest with you guys i didn't think this tread was going to generate this argument....I know that having an avatar is not a big deal...that's why i am surprire about the feedback that is generating...But the forum faq doesn't make it clear...infact the xcuse mantabse is giving me it's not that cnvincing...I mean because i asked i wont get one????come on give me a break!!If you don't ask for something you will not get anywhre....and on top of that isn't a forum suppose to help people with their question? IF you give me the answer that "because i ask for something, i will not get one" then the entire point of having a forum just doesent make sense...next time i post a question...and when i say a question i mean a legitimate question, we are all adults here, i have to think twice if this is the right forum or i might get banned or "dropped out of the radar"...
like i said having an avatar is not a big deal i know that..but this entire thing turned out like receiving a star in elementary school when you behaved..give a break!!!

You can always feel free to visit my site, or one of many other case modding sites and put in your own avatar. This is one of the few places on the planet where it's something that's given out as some kind of bonus. I never did understand it much, an avatar's just a means of personal expression. I can understand the concern that a person might use improper judgement in their choice for an avatar, but then that whole logic falls to pieces when you visit the lifestyle lounge and see what's permitted in there. One one hand we have the "we don't like censorship" idea and on the other we have the "we don't want people having boobies in their avatars" mentality. It just doesn't make a lot of sense. Ah well, this is kinda where I came in and left the last time though, so I'm not interested in arguing the point. I've said my peace.

I think its just somthing to make the forum a little more fun. I mean like Once you get a avitar u feel good about it. And if you just get one as soon as u sign up, it takes the fun out of it.

I don't have an avatar, I can't afford one because of the cost of my current build. Hey, Insane, where is your web site? Us Lain-Li PC-V2100B doods gotta swap ideas.
