    "unable to connect" on Android for me, I really don't need it now because the website looks excellent on the phone.

    That's how I discovered TalkNEX. I was on my iPad. However, I like the web version better than the app, so I started using my Dolphin browser on the iPad. Then I encountered difficulty in editing my avatar, so I got on my laptop to see if the site looks any different there. It doesn't. I still cannot edit my avatar, for some reason. There is only one option there and it's to not use an avatar, and that's already checked and cannot be changed.

    If you go to Settings in the bar at the top right of the page and click Edit Avatar it will show you your current avatar. Below that is the option to choose a custom avatar. If you select a new one it should replace the current one.

    There is no option to use an avatar until you have 100 forum posts

    Using it right now, on my iPad 2. I thought it was kind of quirky, at first, but I'm getting used to it.

    I'm glad most of you like it! I use the Android version every day.

    Known bugs:

    1) Tapping on an embedded Flickr image in the iOS app takes you out of the app and brings your to Flickr. This annoying behavior will be fixed in the next version and in the meanwhile a workaround is that in the settings for the iOS app you can tell it to open links in the app rather than in Safari.

    2) Smilies don't display properly

    3) "Thanks" are designated as "Likes" in the app

    Currently there is no Blackberry or Windows Phone support. I will change that as soon as I can, but I don't know when it will be.

    I've never really understood the logic in that.

    It just encourages some people to make inane comments to get their post count up.

    Like this one :)

    :biggrin:

    I agree. Besides, I like to see an avatar next to someone's posts, it makes it more recognizable and some people put their portrait up which I think is really nice.

    Not trying to speak for Amin (and we haven't discussed it), but my thought on the subject is that if you've stuck around long enough to get 100 posts (even inane ones :p ) you're probably going to be around for awhile. While avatar pics aren't huge, they do take up server space.

    Last time I looked there were 1495 registered users on TalkNEX. Of those, 671 have zero posts, 214 have 1 post. That's 885 out of 1495 with one or less posts. How many of those folks are actually actively visiting here daily? Or weekly? Even monthly?

    Forty-five percent (45%) of the registered users have never posted. Post count to putting up an avatar is simply an enticement to post. ;)

    That's simple then. Lower the limit to 3 posts to enable avatars. I highly doubt if someone who doesn't post at all, is enticed by being able to use an avatar.
