Uploading avatars..

For some reason when I try to upload an avatar it does not allow me to all it says is currently disabled. Is this a bug or is there just something wrong with my settings?

That’s been disabled for me for the entire time I’ve had this account… Just try uploading your preferred avatar onto imageshack or photobucket and then copy the direct link to the uploaded pic that the site (The site you uploaded your avy pic onto) gives you and then paste the link on the text box that says “Link to off-site avater” in your profile and that should work… That’s what I did with my geminiman buddy… Well, if that is disabled too then… Well, I can’t say anything as I wouldn’t know how to resolve the problem except to ask duke… Good luck getting your avy to work…

Nobody is allowed to because that would make it infinitely more easy for a wrong doer to make his avvy porn or something stupid like that

Or more dangerous, allow an executable file to be uploaded to the server.

Oh ok I just found this avatar on a website and I want to use it as my avatar for a little and I don’t know where to put the link for it at and if I enter the url the whole page will just come up.

Ok, try this… Save the image on that website to your computer… (If it doesn’t allow right clicking and you are using Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher, go to the pic until this bar at the top right of the picture appears… There should be a button you can click on that bar that has a picture of a floppy disk… That will bring up the “where should I save it to?” confirmation box…) Just save it to somewhere convenient like your desktop or somewhere… Then go to imageshack or photobucket and upload the image there… Once you upload the image, each page should give you a bunch of links… Go to the one that says “Direct link to uploaded picture” or whatever and copy that link… Go to your RSR profile and paste that link in the text box that says “Direct link to an off-site avatar”… Then just confirm your changes and the picture should be in your avatar… Good luck getting that to work…

Oh thanks now it works. Ok a moderator can lock this now thanks to Geminiman.

Hehe, but you don’t have to credit me… I’m just here to help out my fellow RSR members… BTW, I think your avatar looks really cool… BTW, what is it? It kinda reminds me of a robot master from Megaman but it looks really really cool though…

its a grunt from halo or halo 2

It’s a grunt from halo/halo 2 right? Pretty awesome :wink:

Yep it is a grunt from halo2.

Nice… But pfft… I can see you changed your avatar again… Though this one looks pretty cool…

I like the grunt avatar better, it looked cool. 8)

Well I am going to be changing though them every week it will just be my thing lol.
