Title: service for members: hosting avatars
Post by Ralph Herold on Jun 29th, 2004, 12:07am

Dear members,

Over time, I noticed that different people have problems with their avatars. Some providers seem to cause trouble, others do not wish to sign up just to upload a 1KB image file. Therefore, I have decided to offer hosting avatars for this forum. If you are interested, just send me your avatar. I will upload it and let you know the URL to access it.

Thanks Ralph, I sent you mine.  All the free web hosting sites now have blocking tools to directly prevent linking to them.  Since I host very little else, I cannot justify signing up for hosting service for just an avatar.

You are welcome, guys. The first avatar has been hosted already.

What size (in pixels) should the avatars be?  My AIM one is showing up blurry, b/c the AIM avatars are smaller, so the bulletin board "stretches" it.  I can resize it, but I need to know the size to make it.

van8888: Welcome back! The size is 65x65 pixels.

Hehe, even my lazyness has its own limits ...

I agree with Bruce, we should find an avatar for Alexis ...

I vote Alexis takes over the fabled "boobies.gif".  At least it would give us something interesting to look at when he posts (just kidding Alexis...couldn't avoid the opportunity to poke fun).

Alexis, you were a little slow to reply to this.  Too much time spent in the Turkish Bath?

Just so all of you are aware. Geocities (yahoo) Offers a free web hosting service which has pop ups and banners. However looking at a direct photo causes no spam. For any one tat just wants to host a photo free Use geocites. this is how I stay with in the boundries of my own web site actually.

Anthony:  Your dad meant to email Ralph the image.  Giving him the path of where it is on your hard drive will not help him get it up there for you.  Ask your dad to help you get the image to Ralph.

Post by GraueEminenz on Dec 7th, 2004, 9:46am

No offense, spartan65  ;)
But your Dad is a Computer ignorant. (Do not worry he knows  how I mean it  ;))
You have to send this 'icy.gif' file to Ralph's email address. He stores it on a server and lets you know the URL. Mark it and copy&paste it into your Profile ('I have my own Pic')
Hope this helps
Greetings
Jan

Or... His Dad meant it as a learning challenge: explore what the computer can do and how you get things from A to B. For most kids nowadays its fun and neat!  8)  (Neat is my word, not necessarily theirs. [smiley=laugh.gif] )

To break it down into even more layman's terms, go into Anthony's profile and then copy the line, excluding the quotes  into the "I have my own pic line" and be sure to check the box.
