    So if a thread gets moved from OT to Scifi/SG/Gen TV etc., do you mods go through & add all the posts to each poster so they qualify for a custom avatar or two?

    Just asking is all, it won't help me for years to come.

    Shout but don't hit

    Well,ideally we'd have the threads all in the right place as soon as members create them,and mass chatty/infighting derailments and thread moves/modding wouldn't happen.

    That said: not an ideal world and the forum's expanded a LOT since 2004.Sometimes Darren adds sub-sections or folders for shows so that means a lot of threads move house to other parts of the forum.

    If a thread is WAY off topic,moving the whole thread can be a lot easier than sifting through every post.That said,we try to just temp move threads and put them back out as soon as we can.Sometimes that means deleting posts,but if at all possible we try to keep posts intact.

    Overall though,it's more likely for post counts to rise than fall if we find old threads in OT Chat that belong far better in the SciFi/General TV sections.

    Examples: When the General TV folder was created it took weeks to find all the old threads and make sure they were moved across to the new folder.
    Ditto years ago with the Stargate Tech and Game threads.Same again with some novel and video game threads.

    Basically,we try to get you guys to your Custom Av status as quickly as the posts/threads permit.

    Post counts don't count for much aside from the user titles really and rep giving esp nowadays,so don't be alarmed by high post counts.They aren't always a sign of deep cosmic Scifi knowledge.

    Thank you for your answer Bagpuss.
    I was not actually expecting an answer, just the way my mind works (or doesn't work) I come up with a lot of 'what ifs'

    I found it nice to have something to look forward to when I would reach my 2000th post, so I actually think it's good a thing that you cannot set custom avas from the get go.

    I still doubt my cosmic knowledge but it does help that I came on board at the height of all things stargate. 2004 was the year of Stargate Atlantis so lots to talk about and lots to post.

    Though, I'm still amazed I'm at 30K+ posts at the moment.

    Hello
    I have the best "Profile Picture" in the world, but it's only my Avatar that appears to everyone, if I choose no Avatar I have nothing showing at all.
    I guess that's because I'm still a Problem but I would like to be sure I guess ?
    Thank yooou

    (Oh waw I'm an airman now !! I'm so proud...)

    Choosing a custom Avatar takes a certain post count Razibot, it's not you, it's just the way GW works. You are not a problem at all.

    @Razibot - I think it's 2000 posts before you can upload a custom avatar.

    It is 1000 posts you can have a custom ava after, currently...it used to be as Annoyed said, but not any longer. I just went back and checked what Baggie had written
