Avatar image problems

Postby MobileGamesMotion » Tue Apr 07, 2020 10:21 pm

When I add an avatar image using Imgur, the forum says the link is invalid. Can you give me suggestions on any free image hosting sites that work?

Out of curiousity, are you meeting this requirement for your avatar?

You have to host your image somewhere that will provide direct link to it like "http://www.yourserver.com/yourimage.gif" ...

I'm not sure that free image hosts allow this.

There are free image hosting sites that will work. I used Postimage and selected the "Direct link" option for my avatar.

Good morning. Thank you for allowing me to join the party. I have an avatar properly sized and ready to add to the team I fold for. Once I get access permissions from the team founder, how do I install it?
