    In my control panel, I no longer see the option of uploading a picture from my computer to use as an avatar.. I only see the options of using a gallery pic or a pic on a website. Did this change? Am I missing something? ::lol:: It's been a while since I've been active in the forums.

    Over the past two months, Adtunes.com has been way over it's monthly bandwidth, resulting in hefty charges from our webhost. We're making changes to reduce the amount of bandwidth being used each month, the first was removing the option of uploading an avatar to our server. From now on, you'll have to use a built-in gallery avatar, or link to the url of of an image on your own server. (Please do not hotlink to images that are not on your own web server/site.)

    For avatars, I usually go to photobucket.com and upload them there. they give you a web address for the pics.

    And I love Calvin and Hobbes too........I was cleaning my room and I just discovered a bunch of books.....I've been reading them ever since......which suck 'cause I probably SHOULD get back to cleaning that room........

    Photobucket.com is excellent. I redirect image hotlinkers to "switcheroo" images hosted there. They're a good choice (at the moment) for hosting your images for free.

    You can select an avatar of your own by entering the url of your image file on another server.

    If you go to My Controls in the top red menu, then select Edit Avatar Settings -- you'll see text field:

    "Enter a URL to an online avatar image"

    Simply enter the url of your image file. Don't point to an image/server that doesn't belong to you without permission -- your best bet is to upload your image to a image hosting service that allows direct linking, such as Photobucket.
