How to change profile picture on Affinity forum?


Recommended Posts

Just now, MEB said:

Hi @DSGraphicDesign,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
You should be able to do it after a few posts/couple days (4 posts and three days after joining).

Thanks for the heads up, I had a little scout around for things I could post on so now have managed to upload. Thanks for the swift reply and also the price drop! I'll be grabbing all the software for a windows machine I'm building. Much appreciated. As a side note...anyone got insider access to where I can get a 5900x and 3080? Hahaha

Interesting! It looks as though the ‘three days’ minimum membership requirement doesn’t actually apply (unless a Serif staff member did something behind the scenes, of course).

I think it's because I met the required number of posts to unlock it rather than a number of days. Must be an either/or kinda thing

So it would seem, but that’s not what we’ve been told!!

No I overrode it for you. Normally you have to wait days too, but I looked in the database and saw you were a long standing customer

Please could you also allow me to set my profile image and if possible also the banner behind it?

I see that you’ve been a member since the beginning of the year, so now that you’ve made your fourth post you should find that you’ve automatically acquired the necessary permissions.

Hi!

I'm not seeing the edit avatar button either. Maybe make it clear to the user that they will get the button at some point later. This brings me to the question: once I do get enough rep, or whatever it is I need, will this change take place automatically, or do I still need to alert one of the moderators?

Thanks!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @Nuka.Kola. :)

You’ve made four posts but you’ve been a forum member for less than a day and a half. Once you’ve been a member for three days your status will automatically update to allow you to edit your avatar.

Is there a page detailing all the perks and the required milestones?

Not that I’m aware of. I’ve simply been going by what Patrick and other moderators have posted.

You’ve been a member for 2½ years but you’ve only made three posts. Make another post and then try again.
