    Yes. That's what the Can Upload Custom Avatars usergroup permission does.

    Thank you,

    One more questions:

    1) Can I actually use an avatar saved in my computer. that is can members use avatars that are saved in their computer (i.e. it allows them to upload it in vbulletin too).

    Those avatars are added in your:

    Admin CP -> Avatars -> Avatar Manager

    The avatars need to be uploaded via FTP first.

    The promotion isn't immediate. Promotions are handled by a scheduled task that runs every 45 minutes by default. You can manually run the scheduled task in your:

    Admin CP -> Scheduled Tasks -> Scheduled Task Manager -> User Promotions

    No, they wont be moved untill they visit the site again, as the update script only checks users who have been to the site within the last time the script has been run.

    ok how would i make it so ppl that i have now (which is about 300 or so) that have over 1500 would be added to the secondary user group, i tested it by having someone post so i thought that would then promote them to the secondary group since they are over 1500 but it didnt work, do i have to manually move anyone that is already over 1500?

    Yes. In my instructions the group with custom avatar permissions is used as a secondary group. In this way the custom avatar permissions are separated from the primary groups so you don't have to create multiple versions of your primary groups to create combinations of permissions.

    you should also say this cuz i just figured this out if i am correct

    "u can promote someone to a "additional group" so they will be in two groups a primary one and a secondary one and the secondary will have the custom avvy permission"

    is that correct?

    Why 13 groups? You should only need 1 extra group.

    The new system is more versatile as it allows all usergroup permissions to be restricted by post count, join date, and reputation for specific groups. That's why the change.

    well i know there is little that can be done but before i got work for the next 5 hours to fix this i want to protest that this is extremely annoying, the old way was much better, i will have to make 13 new user groups just so my members can get a custom avatar when they reach 1500 posts like it was before

    than ill have to recode the site to recognize the 13 new user groups

    very annoying, why the change?

    This can be done with a group promotion that is based on post count.

    Turn off custom avatars for the starting usergroup in your:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Can Upload Custom Avatars

    Set this to No to disable custom avatars for this group.

    Also make sure the Allow Users to have Member Groups setting is enabled for this group.

    Then create a new group that has permission to use custom avatars:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Add New Usergroup

    Set all of the new group's permissions to No except for the ability to use custom avatars. The excess No permissions will have no effect on overall permissions because this group is going to be used as a secondary group.

    Then create a promotion in your:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Promotions -> Add New Promotion

    Usergroup = the original group that has no custom avatar priviledges
    Reputation Comparison Type = Greater or Equal to
    Posts = minimum number of posts before users can use custom avatars
    Promotion Strategy = Posts
    Promotion Type = Additional Usergroups
    Move User to Usergroup = the new group you just setup

    All done. Now members of the original group will be granted custom avatar privs when they reach the specified post count.

    so i would need to make another user group and have them be promoted to it?

    and have that user group be allowed to use custom avatars?
