Is my post counter stuck?

    Seems like it's been at 47 for a long time. Also I'm not seeing the picture for my avatar. It's within the pixel and k byte limits.

    Posting in certain areas of the forum (General Discussion) does not contribute to your post count. If it did, I think a few of us would have a million posts :P

    You also don't have an avatar, you have a profile picture. Avatars are one of the perks of being a PF Contributor.

    The search function is pretty helpful for questions like these.

    Posts in the https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=34 [Broken] do not increase your count. Avatars are only for contributing members, what you have uploaded is a profile picture which anyone can have. Once you have an avatar you can set it separately, it could be the same picture as your profile or different.

    thanks for the quick reply. But I don't see my profile picture. Or is that only visible on my profile page?

    Yes, it is only visibly on your profile page.
