Hi,

I hope a mod will make this a sticky because Avatars and Signatures questions are appering in my pm inbox because Ollie is currently soaking up the sun on his holidays. Thanks.

Avatars
Since the change, the way where we tried out the sub sections, the way avatars are changed/created has changed. I will try my best to explain it.

For those who do not know, avatars are the pictures which apper under people user names. Mine is a scrolly thing.

Before the change, members had the option of upload a 50x50 max picture to be use as their avatars. However, there seemed a problem with the uploading from hard drive, so members asked Ollie who would upload their pictures and provide a url address which they used instead.

Since the change, it appers now, members can only use a Pre-defined Standard Avatar found by click User CP and then the Avatar tab. Currently, there is only a dolphin which was mine until the day I stop using AMG. I planned to return to it but 1. I can't change my avatar. 2. Some of the new members are already using it. (further details about my dolphin can be found by pm or im me)

Unfortnely for members, we are currently unable to change our avatars.
I have talked to d and he has told me this is Not a UK Learning problem but a VBulltin problem and currently nothing can be done.

Members without avatars and want one,

1. Visit www.gamespy.com.avatars. This site provides lots of avatars. You can also Click Here.

2. Pick one and save it to your hard drive.

3. Upload it to a webserver. http://www.graffiti.net has been recommend.
***Thank You bones for this information***

However, if you cannot do this. I have my own domain with plenty of webspace. Attach it to an e-mail to [email protected].

3. PM d with the link to the picture.

e.g http:www.thedomain.com/thepic.gif

He should be able to help you then.

Custom Pics/Signature

I posted and created this a while back to help explain how you can get smilies and other pics other than the ones this fourm provides.

1. Visit www.mysmilies.com. This is the only site I use at present.

2. Find a picture you like and click on it.

You should notice that this



will turn to this



3. Now right click this box and select select all
4. Right Click again and select copy
5. Go to your User CP and click on the Signatures tab
6. Right Click in the compose box and select paste. Now you should have something similar to this.



7.If you wish to add some words, add them.



8.Click on Submit Modifications and your done.

________________________________ _________________________

I hope you have understood this explaintation of how to get avatars and pics. If not, I don't not mind explaining this futher through pm or through MSN Messenger ([email protected]). Please don't e-mail me.

I would also like to point out, I have not posted this because I want to be a mod. I have no desire at present, due to my past history here, to become a mod and I'm doing this for the good of the forum - and to keep my pm box as empty as possible.

Bringing colour to the forum,
A Musical Gal

I've got an avatar on my hard drive but how can I put in on a pm? to insert an image it wants a web address but you can't get a web address for a specific picture, just for a whole page of pictures.

At the bottom of the compose pm screen there is an attach option where you can attach files.

You should be able to upload your own from anywhere on the internet. (Use the file upload thing). I can put some more default ones on if you want.
