    50+ posts but can't find custom avatar option

    Does it take a while for the option to become available? I just hit 50 posts today, and I got the custom title option, but I'm not seeing a custom avatar option. I went into "edit avatar" and only see the options that were there previously.
    Current projects:
    Aftermath (post-apocalyptic teen trilogy)
    Book 1: 2nd draft complete at ~95K. Total rewrite in progress at ~30K. Completion goal: May 1.
    Book 2: Rough draft at ~70K. Completion goal: July 1.
    Book 3: Planned for Nano 2009.
    The Other Somerset (alternate England portal fantasy): 50K written for Nano 2008. Needs overhaul and draft completion.
    The Academy (dystopian genius school murder mystery): ~75K written. Needs total rewrite.

    It could take a moment or ten. From the Custom Avatars thread in FAQs forum:

    So there's quite likely going to be a lag.

    Whoops. I swear I looked through the FAQs forum but I missed that one. Thanks.

    Obviously you got there--we see the 'new you.' Lookin' good, there.
