    For the avatar click the arrow next to Quick Links at the top right hand corner of the page then select Edit Avatar. As for the polls, I don't seem to see them either. So I think it might have something to do with the new board and the reading of new posts/ polls. But I can't be certain.....

    Yeah, you can't actually add custom avatars at the moment, I'm having that problem too. Polls look to be a little bugged at the moment, the results might need to be rebuilt from the admin CP (unless somehow someone's managed a mass stripping of poll results).
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    From the FAQ (http://forum.cricketweb.net/faq.php?):

    How do I create and vote in polls?
    You may notice that some threads on this forum also include a section where you can vote on an issue or question. These threads are called 'polls' and this is how to create them:

    Creating a new poll

    When you post a new thread, you may have the option to also create a poll.

    This function allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread.

    An example poll might be:

    What is your favorite color?

    Red
    Blue
    Yellow
    Green
    Sky-blue pink with yellow spots
    To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Yes! post a poll' checkbox at the bottom of the page, and set the number of possible responses you want to include.

    When you click the submit button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.

    You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it only stays open for voting for a week.

    Voting in and viewing a poll
    To vote in a poll, simply select which option you want to vote for, and click the [Vote!] button. You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link. Voting in a poll is entirely optional. You may vote for any of the available options, or cast no vote at all.

    Generally, once you have voted in a poll, you will not be able to change your vote later, so place your vote carefully!

    Also, feel free to use the testing forum to test things out.

    Do we have to post a certain amount of times before receiving a custom avatar, or is it restricted to staff only?
