How do I use a custom avatar instead of the normal ones? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time

F2p users can't use a custom avatar, we can't use an image on signature neither. Well, at least we can use smiles :rolleyes:

Good luck, been trying for quite awhile, even went so far as to email the forums mods. Got some help, but when I finally got it figured out the size was wrong when I went to upload. Yet I see people with much bigger sigs and avatars than what is "allowed". Emailed the forum mod back, he told me would look at it and let me know, that has been 4 days ago.

Its not a huge deal, just would love to know how some people can get their sigs and avatars uploaded that are quite obviously bigger than allowed.

We do not host the signature image, we host the avatar, The signature lies underneath your post and the avatar is above the post or to the left, in the margin (Billy F Gibbons is my avatar, my signature is my title under the post).

For a signature you have to use something like photobucket (it's free!) to host the image, then copy a link into your signature space in your profile. I'll be honest with you, I'm not real harsh on sig size unless it's ridiculously huge or the user is otherwise causing problems.

Aye, I did photobucket and did what was needed, but the error I get is the size is not allowed. Same for the avatar. I sent them via email to you and you had said you would look at them after you got home from work. No problem that you forgot, if you still have them take a look at them please. :)

You did, I'm sorry. I can't find them now. I was looking in my forum PMs and wondering why I didn't see them! I'm getting feeble in my old age. If you could resend them to gvonpaul@playnet.com I'll take care of it today.

OK your avatar is good, but the issue is with the sig is that you are using the 'upload signature' function as opposed to hosting it remotely. Upload to photobucket, or image dump, or whatever, then use the little picture icon in the signature editor (it looks just like the window for posting) and paste in the remote url to to it.
