    Yes, my avatar is a gif. If it's animated it needs to be within the standard size.

    Try resizing it to 150px wide.

    What must I do to have a "priviledged" account to edit my profile?

    I sure hope this gets read and answered, because I still can NOT post a new thread in the Ask the Staff heading.

    What is needed in order to have sufficient priviledges to access and edit my profile? I see people posting threads that have a post count of 1.

    Seriously? I know it is just a stupid fuckin' picture, but I am sure SOMEONE has read this from the staff, that could give me an answer. It has been almost a week.

    You will have to host your photo on a site like Photobucket or Imageshack first.

    Cause if at first you don't succeed, won't hurt to smoke some weed.

    I don't see any problems with your account. To change your avatar:

    Press "Settings" on top right of screen. It should take you to a different screen. If it doesn't what error message are you getting? Alternately, try another browser.

    After the next screen shows up, Press "Edit Avatar" on middle left of screen.

    Click on "Use Custom Avatar" button.

    Use Option 1 if the image is hosted elsewhere.

    Use Option 2 if you're uploading the image.

    Press "Save Changes"

    You must make sure that your avatar is small enough (175 pixels by 250 pixels max). Try a really small image first if you have trouble. Larger images never work.

    Thank you for your help. Everything seems to be fine now. Before in the 'My Settings' section, there was no 'edit avatar' option. Same goes for 'edit signature' and 'edit profile picture'.

    All is good now though :)

    Glad it works. There may be a little bit of a lag between initial registration and availability of all features.
