We have just reversed the long standing policy of reserving avatar images and profile pictures for subscribers only.
The following conditions still apply though :
- 6 rated games before you can upload an avatar image.
- 12 rated games before you can upload a profile image.
Exceptions to the above conditions :
- A subscriber can upload before these conditions are met.
- A player authenticating via a social network can use their profile image from their social network profile image as an avatar right away. (This is not currently supported, but will be shortly.)
A word of warning though, uploading an inappropriate image will result in the closure of your account with no chance to appeal.
If you wouldn't show an image to your family, don't upload it here.
