I am a new member, and am having trouble getting my avatar image to appear.
The place to set up wants an URL link to an avatar image. I have a photo I want to use. The only place online I have photos is myspace. But when I try to enter the URL for the specific photo, i get a message that says "invalid URL".
Am I the only dumbass that can't figure out how to get my picture up?
If you want to use an image from MySpace, then you will get that "invalid URL" thing, unless it is the precise address of the image. For instance:
That is not
the direct link, that's a link to the page which has the image on it.
To get the direct link (if you are using internet explorer) right-click on the image and select "Properties" from the drop down menu. Then you will be given the the Address/URL which will look like this:
Make sure when you copy that, it has the .jpg and everything in it, sometimes it hangs off the bottom and you can miss it.
If you're using Firefox, instead you can right-click the image and select "View Image" from the drop down menu. That will take you to the precise address of the image and you can copy it from the browser's address bar.
Hope that helps, if that doesn't help, you can give me the link to the myspace picture you want to use and I'll see what I can do
