    30 is the magic number, so after 30 posts you will be able upload a Avatar.

    Welcome to the Board and enjoy making many posts.

    While you wait to put in the time and build up your post count you might be able to add a signature line with a unique, avatar looking, kind of insert.

    It's not just dependent on post count, but on duration of membership too. Butterfly joined in Jan so probably has not reached the minimum of 30 days yet, even though their post count is well above that required.

    Gosh, in my day I think that we had to wait a year to get an avatar.
