    go to "My settings" -> "My forum settings"
    enter a URL link (i.e. a web address) of the picture you want: 50x50 pixels in size. The URL must be publically available requiring no password to get to the it is hosted on.

    Right click the avatar you want then click properties to get the proper url.It must be copied exactly as you see it http:// etc. .If you get the empty box you copied it wrong

    Aw crap . I liked that one . So it's not something we did technically wrong , it's that it's like copyrighted or something , right ?

    yup something like that: you'll just need to find another pic somewhere else.

    You could set up an imageshack account and host the image on that.

    I don't know that we wouldn't have the same problem with that image . We had to pull it into a photoshop thing and crop it as it wasn't 50x50 pics . Then we hosted the cropped image on one of her websites . Evidently it won't let rhp pull it again from a different (host)site .

    Have to tried mailing it to somebody first, then hosting it? Just a thought. I`d be happy to give it a try for you.

    I had the same problem .. I had posted my pic a few places, and it kept not being pulled properly.. where I have it stored now is working., if you want, PM me, and I can put your avatar on my site and you can link to it.. I only had the site activated for my avatar.
