    Even though your avatar is not quite to this forums liking at all (prepare to get flamed), to get it working you need to change hosts, I will not host a image of that sort either. Your host doesnt allow hotlinking of files, so when you link it will either come up with 'this file is hosted on such and such' (tripod free accounts) or just a x like yours.

    Try using FreeWebs (www.freewebs.com) no annoying pop-up and easy to use/handle.

    Whats the matter with that avatar? Its just a chibi Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho.....not like its any kind of ecchi/yaoi or pr0n. Nothing that'd break any rules here.....

    www.boomspeed.com is a good free place to use, but koekie's offer in his sig is good.

    boomspeed dont allow hotlinking, prepare to get your account deleted after a while if you get one.

    I thought it was easier for Geocities users to change the extension to TXT instead of JPG on the file and the link they put as their avatar... Geocities doesn't block TXT files...
