Okay, I don't know if anyone else has this problem but, my avatar disappeared. I tried to get it back, or even find a new picture, but I cant. Every time I put in a site for a pic, it won't work, and it has all the times before. Could someone help me please? I'm so confused. huh.gif sad.gif

Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

are you sure that the address of the pic is correct? are you sure the website allows hosting?

Obviously it's on her end, since our avatars are still showing up. tongue.gif

Okay spiffilicious, I clicked the properties for your avatar, and the address came out to be this:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/forums/html /avatars /web.mit.edu/philip/www/%20sailormoon/hotaru.jpg (without the spaces...silly auto-formatting thing)

Since Mata doesn't allow us to upload avs, I'm assuming you don't want the matazone.co.blah blah there. What is the address for your avatar meant to be? web.mit.edu/all that other stuff?? It just looks to me like there's extra stuff at the beginning that somehow got pasted on there, so you just need to scroll over and delete. it. smile.gif

If that doesn't work, then the site probably doesn't allow direct linking. If that's the case, then save the avatar to your hard drive, go to www.webpost.net, and set up an account with them (click on login, then click "get my free website"). When you upload the avatar file, the address to link it will be http://www.webpost.net/ the first two letters of your account name/ your account name / the picture file name.file extension (like .jpg or .gif). -- obviously without all those spaces and replacing the actual names for what I put. biggrin.gif

I hope that helps! smile.gif

I love you in a way that is mystical and eternal and illegal in 20 states.

http://web.mit.edu/philip/www/ seems to exist but the /%20sailormoon/hotaru.jpg bit after doesn't, so that's an address which can't be persuaded to work.

http://www.matazone.co.uk/forums/html definitely shouldn't be there though.

I often have a problem faffing with avatars.

I'll try to paste the address of an image from somewhere off the interweb and the box I'm pasting in just won't accecpt it. I've only ever had this problem on my PC at home though.
