one minute..

How to post up your Avatar........... How to post up your Avatar........... How to post up your Avatar........... How to post up your Avatar........... How to post up your Avatar...........

As quoted from Soldari:



Okay,



1) go to the 'My Home' section from the top menu.



2) In the 'Main Configuration' there's a 'Personal information, email, password, etc.' section: click edit.



3) near the bottom, it says 'URL to your picture' this is where you type the address of your picture.



4) don't forget to confirm your password or none of your changes will be saved.



5) press submit.



6) be excellent to each other.









Now i have tried that...and it works.



Try going to www.google.co.uk and clicking images, then search for a picture of something you want, then use the URL form the picture (right click on the picture, click properties, and copy the long bit at the bottom)

Posted:ok i really like my tongue and all, but i think it would also be very cool to have an animated avatar like flid's. cause i have a short vid of me doing fire and if i can have that as my avatar that would be very cool. anyone know how?

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Don't really have anything too good for animation just yet, but might work on it if I knew how to make an animated avatar wink
