When I first joined, I tried to get an avatar, but the avatar function is disabled??
Can we enabled it?

No, other than admins/mods and a handful of special members, avatars are automatically set based on rank.

Then there are special ranks that are manually granted at the discretion of the Admin team - those also have 4 feathers except for the person who posted the 20,000th post who has the Peachy avatar.

In lieu of the above list/explanation, and just out of pure curiosity, can anybody perhaps enlighten me: What's the definition of a "Contributing Member" :?:
