I couldn't find where I could upload an avatar in my profile.
You need to get a paid subscription first. It's one of the perks.
An avatar is a feature only given to PF contributors (subscribers), or to people who already had an avatar before this policy was introduced.
An avatar costs $25 dollars (U.S.) per year.
Along with other features of course!
We'll explain the secret super-powers to him after he forks over the $25.
There's nothing in FAQ(Frequently Annoying Questions ) about when administrator enables sig. or avatar for someone. Not sure but I guess there's nothing about PF contributors either! I guess new members have no idea of those, at first!
and after his paddling
If you click on "Upgrade" in the menu at the top right of the page, you'll see the information about subscriptions which says:
The only thing that isn't accurate is the custom title part since titles aren't enabled anymore.
Thanks. How much for a year? $25 U.S.?
You can pay by credit card even if you don't have a PayPal account - I didn't know that at first.
I paid $25 last year just to support PF, and didn't even use the avatar (or any of the other added features) until now. Also, I've spent about $1,000 on books at Amazon.com over the past year, but didn't know until recently that there's a way to benefit PF by making these purchases through PF. I suggest that these opportunities to benefit PF be made even more clear to everyone, and that students should be able to contribute at a $5 (or so) level.
