Getting an Avatar on our Profile

Post by Eri »

Hey!!

I'm posting this because i've seen a lot of different threads where people asked for help about getting an Avatar on their Profile. Well, i'm going to explain how to get an avatar to work on our profile since the first step, so following it there should be no problem :wink:

Once we've got the avatar we want (remember The Avatar and Signature Rules before uploading it) we have to go to http://imageshack.us/ and will get this boxes:

We choose the image from our computer and press the Button Host it!, then wait until we get the next window, which should be like this one:

http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/4291/12vx5.jpg

We have to copy the URL (the box where it says Direct Link to Image) that we're given and then go to our Profile on The Lexicon and paste the URL in the Link to Off Site Avatar

If you still have any problems after following this steps, don't post it here, come <a href="http://archive.twilightlexicon.com/viewtopic.php?t=729" target="_blank">here</a> and tell the problem you've had

You can test whether your avatar shows or not <a href="http://archive.twilightlexicon.com/viewtopic.php?t=31" target="_blank">here</a>, but as i've said before, don't tell here if you have any problem, post it on the Avatar Help thread

Thank-you for your help. I seriously can't believe that I was able to create and avatar. I've wanted one for so long and for those of us a little bit older it can all seem a little overwhelming.

Thanks again...
