Avatar instructions for PHOTOBUCKET:
For free image hosting services for your avatars and pictures I would recommend an account at photobucket.com.
Just go to photobucket.com. The screen will lead you through the steps. You will have to put in a username and password along with your email address.
Once you set up the account you can browse pictures off of your computer into your account.
The site will then generate a Url address for you. The site will give you three codes, the top one is the Url.
Copy it and paste it into the avatar/picture box on the Control Panel page of this board.
Avatar instructions For IMAGESHACK:
If you have an old imageshack account the steps are the basically the same.
Once imageshack generates the codes, copy the top one (for Forums), and paste it into the avatar/picture box on the Control Panel page of this board. Then you will have to delete the [IMG] tags from the beginning and end of the code.
