    Have to have an avatar right now?

    As most of you know the forums image database is down right now so that is why you see so many broken avatars.

    But if you upload an avatar (125x125) to photobucket and copy & paste the "direct link" url in the "Option 1 - Enter the URL" box and click "save changes" you are done.

    Seeing as how this sounds like only a temporary issue, should it get fixed when the database gets back up and working?
    In search of: 2012, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Shawshank Redemption, Chronicles of Narnia. Nothing to trade for now.

    Mine was borked here so I uploaded it at photobucket. seems we have to do the opposites of our habits ...

    that's twisted.

    I tried that but the avatar would not show up, that's why I tried the offsite option and it worked.

    Though I received a scary "Upload of file failed" message, "Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer" worked as it is supposed to do actually. Hope it helps...
