SORRY, due to abuse by a few members, we have had to remove the ability for members Avatar pictures to link to an externally-hosted picture/image (ie. on their own or someone else's server).
As a result, these images will no longer display on the left-hand side underneath your forum name.
Instead, we have activated the Avatar Upload
function, and are permitting you to upload your own pictures to our server, but these will only work if they comply with the following limits:
The Avatar Control Panel is reached from within your PROFILE -- just click the Profile
link at the top of any Dreamsville forum page to access this, then scroll down the page to locate it.
Displays a small graphic image below your details in posts.
Only one image can be displayed at a time
Its width can be no greater than 80 pixels
The height no greater than 80 pixels
File size no more than 6 KB.
May I also remind members that linking and embedding external images within your posts that are greater than 500 pixels in width ruins the whole forum layout and forces the column width wider than it should be. Some of the images from Nelsonica 2006 are huge, so if you could please check your own images and resize them and resave them on your servers/computers, it will make for a much easier forum to navigate.
