    quickest way to kill spam is to click on the report spam button -- it's the one that looks like a warning sign in the upper-right of each post.

    Evidently, the basic vBulletin captcha filter has been figured out by the spam bots. More effective methods will have to be used (custom backgrounds, fonts, questions, etc.). It's a never ending battle and a big waste of time for the forum administrator!

    Thanks for getting on it. On another topic, is there a reason the avatar feature is turned off?

    They should be working?

    Aha -- Looks like you've set a profile picture -- which is separate from an avatar. The profile picture can be big and only appears on your profile. The avatar is small and appears next to your post.

    When I look at the "Edit Avatar" section in the User CP I only have a radio button for disabling the avatars.

    D'oh again! my bad -- default user group permissions are much more restrictive these days. That's what I get for browsing with full admin privileges and assuming, eh?

    Fixed -- you all should be able to upload avatars now!

    Pssst.... you're replying to a guy who isn't officially with Mobile Nations any longer (now over on The Verge) and a post that is almost 4 years old.
