An 'avatar' is the image that appears below your username on the left hand side of the screen when you make a post.

If you want one of these it is highly advisable that they are not offensive to others and that they fall within the guidelines of this site.
This means that the image must be of the correct size, which is a width and a height of no more than 80 pixels, and a file size of no more than 64kb.

How do I find one?
Most people use an image search engine, such as http://images.google.com to find an image that they would like to use. If the image you want is copyright you may like to ask permission to use it first, and most people will say yes if you ask them politely enough.

When you have the image you want you need to make sure it is the right size as mentioned above.

How do I put it up?
In order for it to be seen by others the image needs to be located on the internet, which means you will need to have some webspace where the image can be located.
When the image is online, copy the url for where it is located. A URL is the web address that starts with http://. To find out the url of your image rightclick on the picture and go to 'properties' - it will show you the URL address there and you can copy this.

When you have the URL you need to go to your 'profile' page by following the link at the top of this forum (you must be logged in) or clicking here.

At the bottom of your profile page you have the option to include the URL for your avatar where it says "Link to off-site Avatar". Put in the URL that you copied earlier and press the 'submit' button.

If everything went well, you should have a nice new avatar.

Something went wrong...help!

Just don't use Angelfire to host avatars, cuz it doesn't show (Set cursed BESS! Evil or Very Mad ) So you can upload it to http://www.villagephotos.com

Thank you, Murphyz, for addressing this growing problem! Good job. Did you take that right out of a help menu? If not, you did a very good job explaining it in a way everyone can understand. Thanks again!

Nope, wrote it myself, simply due to the fact I own three forums and moderate several more so I know it is a common issue.

Oh, and angelfire and geocities can show images - if you know how to do it Twisted Evil

Hi Chenoa,

I did a test with that URL and it works fine for me. Remember, once you have gone to your profile and put the URL into the right place, you need to then hit the 'submit' button.

As I say, that image should work as the site have not banned remote access... - see.

Also, make sure there are no blank spaces after the .gif

Of course BESS doesn't block that picture. We're at school, that's why we can't see Angelfire and Geocities pics.

BTW, to host a pic using Geocities, just save it as a .TXT file. Very Happy

And if you save it as txt and link to it, will the image be displayed? If yes, that's cool! Razz
