Making people earn privileges seems like a bad rule all around. It's annoying for users and it seems like it encourages them to "post whore" with useless posts just to achieve more privileges.
If you could do it from the start people would be making troll accounts every 2 seconds...


Avatar really a big thing though?? You may of read the rules but apart from this thread the IQ level of the average sherdogger is under 30.

I don't understand how allowing people to use avatars right away would lead to more troll accounts. That makes no sense at all. But it doesn't matter, 250 posts is the rule so I guess I'll just have to wait a few months to get there.

Because they'll be putting avatars up of say shogun tapping, fedor ko'ed etc etc

Edit: you can ask a mod to make something your avatar even with less posts. (Not 100% sure) message det_kimble and ask maybe she/he can help you out.

That's OK, I don't want special treatment. The rules say 250 posts first, so that's what I'll do, even though I think the rule is stupid.

Got back above break even with the parlays hitting due to Rory Mcilroy losing at Honda. It was a nailbiter though!
