The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
how do i add an avatar to my addres fm my desktop?
Go to 'Yr Acct' at the top of the page.
Scroll down your account details until you find the avatar block, then type in the url.
Save changes & it's done
url ignorance! where do i find my url address? is it hte e-mail address?
You need to paste in the url, or web address, of the avatar you want to use.
For example, if you wanted the poppy (like mine), this is what you'd paste in: http://img123.exs.cx/img123/5804/poppy.gif
If the avatar you want is on your desktop, ie a file on your PC, you need to host it somewhere on the web.
You'll need webspace to do this. Yahoo offer free space, and do many other ISPs (villagephotos, MSN ...etc). You might even be able to be sneaky and upload your avatar to the Arrse gallery and link to it there???
If the avatar is already available on the web, you can find it's URl by right clicking on the images and selecting PROPERTIES. Paste that into the space on Yr Acct as described above...
Separate names with a comma.
