Since I'm no longer an admin here :cry: I cannot sticky this thread, nor am I sure where the proper place for this thread, but here goes.

I have seen lots of people trying to figure out how to fix their avatar so I put together a step by step WITH PICS :D

Step 1:
From your User Control Panel, click profile(notice the red circle):

Image



Step 2:
Click "edit avatar"

Image



Step 3:
Go to your photobucket account, and click on the "direct link" and then either click edit, copy. OR just type ctrl+c

Image



Step 4:
Paste the link you just copied in the "link off-site" field.

Image



Then click submit... That's it, you're done! Notice at the bottom you can specify your avatar dimensions. When in doubt, leave these blank so it will set the size to whatever the size of your picture is.

Hope this was helpful for all of you computer illiterate people out there! :D

Thanks much for taking the time to do that. That should make it a lot easier for many of us.

Thanks. In a minute I'll know for sure that it worked, but looks good so far.

Love the skull and crossbone bandanas!

Did you pose them for that pic or do you make them wear those any time they shoot their bows? ;)

Is there any way to upload from from my machine with "my pictures" anymore, without going through photobucket??

That's what I used to do, but it no longer works.
