There are two ways to upload an avatar: by url (e.g. linking it to your photobucket account) or actually uploading the file.

For some reason, the file-uploaded avatars did not transfer to the new site. I did transfer the entire directory, but the phpbb code is not picking it up and displaying it.

The avatars that you see currently are either uploaded by url, or the individual user has re-uploaded it since the move.

I just thought I'd mention it, in case some of you are waiting for us to do something about avatars. As far as I know, no one is working on that, and I don't have any ideas. So - if your avatar isn't showing up, you need to re-upload it.

Are you asking me to upload an avatar for you, even though I just posted that you have to do it yourselves? :P

Better be careful - I might just decide to do it just for you. And there's no telling what avatar you'll end up with :devil:

I'm sure Jude could find a nice picture of Sam & Anna for you, Duffy. If you're really feeling lazy...

Just checking to see if my avatar is still there...

ETA: Darn! I had that gif(?) (I should know this stuff, I'm SOOO embarrassing myself) file of a running horse as my avatar for forever, and I don't remember how I had it linked. I don't remember where it is! I think hal gave it to me, a long time ago.

<snif>

Yippeee!!!

Thank you, Holby. You rock!

:horse:


But I do have a question. :)

The address for the gif file (it was a gif! I'm NOT a TOTAL idiot!!) is at board77.net. If that board goes away (not sure what's in store for that location), will the gif go away, too? (I'm thinking it might.)

Sooo... can someone teach me to save this gif at this location? (Okay, so maybe I am an idiot, and this should be obvious...)

Right click the image and save it to your computer. Then just upload it here via the avatar thingy.

Speaking of avatars, I was reading some old threads, and guess what they were discussing that I had forgotten about and now remember, in all its ghastly traumatic aagragaahness?



Wolfie's old Peter-Pan-guy avatars. :spider:



*is scarred for life all over again*

Wow, *E* can find a graphic on absolutely anything! :bow:

So, if I were to suggest something totally random, such as a turtle discussing philosophy with a hippopotamos...
