In the dropdown under the text "Avatar type:", the only option available is "Gallery Avatar". I can't find any way to upload one. Whatever I dont give a $hit anymore.

There are two types of users from what I can tell. MVS Contributors meaning if one of your write up is accepted and the other is Registered Users. I am a MVS Contributor due to one write up. I don't remember donating to MVS. That being said in trying to see if the system is indeed disallowing personal Avatars I deleted mine and...

I now have generic Avatar I picked under C30 and the personal one is gone :lol: :cry: .

So those with personal ones were from awhile back perhaps.

I think this section is in the MVS abyss? Posts do not show up on the Home Page section on the right showing the most recent Posts.

There's a shortcut called "New Posts", it is easy peasy lemon squeeze to find this post. I don't know why no one responds.

Pm matt, the forum owner if you need help with avatars

It’s the usual case that 99 /100 are great and then the one guy who wants a porno avatar ruins it for everyone else
