Looking through my Control Panel, I don;t see an option to add an avatar (just a profile picture). I notice others have them, so I'm wondering if I missed the tab (likely) or if there is a certain posting/membership requirement (also likely)?


Thanks in advance!

I think you have to upgrade your membership on the forums. This gives you a few added extras like being able to have an avatar.

You have to be a Gold member. Either by upgrading (the link is at the top of the page), or through the PF Proliferation offer. http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=338366

Ah! Thanks for pointing that out, megin (and Evo)! I had missed that contributions bit.

Do you think all that is worth 12 bucks?

And are you related this guy?

It all depends. The site does seem quite promising and if I grow attached to it, I think it definitely would be worth it (if only to help maintain a resource).

Also, the Proliferation thingamajoob is a nice option for those that find it a little steep.

Not only do you get an avatar but also no ads, recognition graphic, set invisible, custom title, signature, profile photo, 200pm limit, who's online, user notes, boolean searching...

Not that I know of! We may be long, lost internet cousins, however.
