Help this slow person
« on: September 10, 2008, 12:23:04 AM »
You know, I've been a member of this forum for about two months now and I still haven't figured out the who avatar thing. Now I know I've asked for assistance before and a couple of posters were kind enough to attempt assistance but as of yet I still haven't figured it out. Now right off the bat I'm gonna let you know that before my activity on this site my on line activity was minimal. Maybe the occasional google or mapquest (prior to my GPS) and that's about it. So when the site tells me to verify my avatar by URL I really don't have a clue as to what this means. I went to that my page thing and created a profile and from there I'm stuck. I know it may be irritating but I would really appreciate it if someone would maybe instruct me on how to go about doing this the right way. In laymans terms if possable. Any assistance is welcome.

Ok, this is dependent upon one thing assumption: That you already have an avatar and have it hosted somewhere.

If you don't, go find a pic, feel free to email it to me (or point me at it) and I can host it. :)

1. Go to your profile.


2. In the menu to the left, click on "Forum Profile Information."


3. This menu will open. You will input the location of your avatar in the box the red arrow is pointing to.


4. Save early, save often. ;)


Voila, you now have an avatar!

Click [profile]
[forum profile information]

Then click the bubble (I have my own picture)

Type or copy paste the URL to your picture there, including the http://  <<<<You probably forgot that.

Then click change profile.

;)

Right click the image and click properties.  Then there should be something that says "Image source" or something like that.  That is your URL.

Ok so I finally got it thank you both for the assistance. I guess I thought it was gonna be hard when they said URL but it was too easy once I understood
