View Full Version : Avatar question
Sep 13th, 2003, 12:00 PM
A nice person gave me a site to upload a picture to, and I did, and I got a thing called a 'URL', and I put it in the avatar url spot in my profile, and I was told "The URL of the remote avatar is not valid".
Is there something I can do, or what? I don't know how to work the internet.
If anyone wants to help, I can pm them the url thing, but I can't go giving out the site to every old joe, you now?

Post the url of your picture here and we can try figuring out what you're doing wrong. Without that, it's gonna be a tad bit hard to help ya.

I'm having the same problem.
I'm assuming its due to the crappiness of geocities, but I have no programming skill whatsoever. Suggestions?

You can't host avatars using Geocities. Try www.villagephotos.com or some other image host.

Ah cool, ty. Was just using that site because I'm gonna be using Geocities to archive some crap for school, and didn't want to bother with a whole new service.
Edit: Yay! It works now! B Horror movies own!

All I see is a red x with village photos.
Just register to a message board that allows uploading and do that instead. It's the only reliable thing I've ever done :(
