Hey HotPasta - sig's and avatars are set in the "User CP" section of the site. Some of the features (custom avatar?) are only available with donation or if you are a "site supporter". I'm not sure which features are available at what level, etc, maybe someone in the know can add additional details...

Thank you
Probably you have right. Free accounts can use only custom avatars and no sign.

I used to have a custom avatar, but I never had a paid subscription here...

Now, I tried to change it, but only had the option to delete it.

I deleted it, but I'm stuck with a stock photo avatar... is the only choice I have now, unless I pay up?

I think the purpose is not to ask anyone to pay just so they can have a signature or custom avatar.

If you like the site and find it helpful and useful, not to mention saving time, money and effort from the members' experience and expertise (e.g., DansSLK), and the camaraderie and you decide to voluntarily support the site by getting a premium membership, then as appreciation for your support, you then have some "perks", like custom avatar, signature, signature pix, etc.

I hope the explanation is helpful.

I guess my question is: "How come I used to have a custom avatar, but I can't get one anymore?" (I have never been a paying member of this site)

Was the payment requirement a recent change?

no probs, i'm on a number of car forums, and had to subscribe to one of them, because i really enjoy posting there, and needed the extra space to post photos and such.

i'll do the same here if I reach the limitations of my free account.
