    yeah because the avatar must be linked to an image that is already on the web....

    we have not activated the upload avatar
    it's not so hard to place it on a free web space ^__^

    if you still have a problem email me with the avatar i'll fix that... gbatemp@libero.it

    ok, that's fine, but wouldn't it then be better to remove the option to upload the avatar?

    lycos permits free accounts and external link.. so it's perfect for your purpose [​IMG]

    it's better if he could sign up a free acct like Alexander said above. Depending on a good site with the pix is not a good idea (unless you're too lazy to do it the other way) because if that good site is down or gone then your alvarta is gone as well [​IMG]

    offers 1mb for free accounts, but that should be more than enough when ur just using it for storing sigs and avatars

    Trune here,

    tibble_al@hotmail.com add me and ill put it up on my server. ^^ finally got it running.

    Its still a free server, www.flatface.net but they hand select you, 200mb free, perl, cgi, ftp uploading, etc..
    But they don't always accept you [​IMG]
    I was 'special' [​IMG]

    Doh, that boomspeed.com is no longer accepting free accounts. Oh well, I went ahead and signed up for a pay account with doteasy.com. only 25$ a year for 20Mb of webspace, and no adds or anything, plus i got my own .com [​IMG]
    Soon to be www.superfilez.com. Couldn't think of anything original [​IMG]

    unless ur making a full site or something, i dont really see the reason for paying 25 bucks just to have a place to put ur pics [​IMG]
    if u want a place to put it so badly just send me the file in msn and ill upload it.
    crion_465@hotmail.com
