this question gets asked so much you have to get up to 100 posts before you can choose an avatar, sucks but you'll get there this thread will be closed before you know it

Sooner or later you'll get there, but no need to rush. 1,000 posts in 3 months is far from the norm.

Also, while we welcome you to the Raven, you really should have read the rules.

You have grounds. If anyone questions you... just cite his jacket.

Indeed. There are so many topics arounf here and the conversations are always very vivid. So it will really not be a problem for you to catch a hundred posts. But dare not to spam :

Rather crazy if you ask me, I am trying to post regularly and I'm not even to 500 yet. My goal is to get to 1000 by the end of May, it will take me quite a bit longer to get that Jock Avatar though...

The point, Nurhachi, is that there were rules you should have read. Even if you missed it when you read them the first time, if you had a particular question, you should have looked for the answer first, both in the FAQ and rules, and also in prior threads, rather than asking.

Relax, kid, we're not going to ban you for the question or for your jacket. But keep your nose clean, otherwise it's going to be hard to maintain some level of respect.

Oh, and fandom would have nothing to do with it.

Nurhachi, I misunderstood what was going on here. I was in no way implying that you should be banned if that's how you understood it.

Just wanted to make that clear.

There are a ton of places one can find the answer to this question you asked, for example from the sticky thread on top this Newbie section. It's in the general FAQ, and myriad of other places, including the Forum rules. By asking this question you're giving away that you have NOT read them, which is mandatory for every new member, by the way.

Nobody is going to ban you though, I was simply venting out my frustrations since I noticed a several things done wrong, not reading the forum rules (a big mistake) and misplacing this thread; it should have gone to Feedback, which is even labeled Here you may post comments or questions regarding The Raven.

Go at ease for now, but remember... we're watching you closely.

Take a joke, bro.


I may be an *******... but I'm also not very serious...

...not 100% serious at least.



Your jacket, whether I dislike it or not, is obviously not terms for a banning.


...at least not on this board. Now if I ran the board...

From what I know, to use an Avatar you need to have a capsule built that has your DNA somehow linked to it. Then, you get in said capsule and run around in a huge Smurf body. Isn't that how you do it?

In these trying economic times, we found that we simply couldn't afford employing that many high-level avatars. Some agreed to keep handling their duties in lower pay grades, others refused and therefore had to be laid off.

So sorry for your pain, Nurch. But, I still see Jock under the list of available avatars. And, I doubt that I'll ever change mine. I'm so used to it.

Either he flew off... or you need to have your eyes checked.
