Hello fellow ATS members, sorry to seem like such a noob here, but i've been struggling with this for the better part of an hour and i'm frustrated.

AshleyD was nice enough to create a background for my Avatar.

Now i the background uploaded and i attempted to buy it and put it up, but it did not work.

Also she sent me a Clear Avatar so it would not affect the background, that also did not work.

Can anybody give me some tips on how i can just set up the background with the clear avatar?

Much Appreciated

~Keeper

Actually the clear avatar is working. It creates the separation between your username and you status/points. I'm sure ashleyd will be here in a minute to help you with your background image.

Since you inadvertently messed up your background image, if you contact a moderator, I am sure they will refund you the 2500 points if you ask nicely.

The clear avatar is actually working, as S-Dog said. That is why your text is pushed down.

Here is the background image currently in my member center:

files.abovetopsecret.com...

(click to magnify).

Did you only paste ats64801_treeofpeace-background.jpg into the image slot and not the whole link?

Make sure you only post the link segment and not the whole link. And did you upload it to your own member center so I can delete it from mine?

Let me know exactly what you did and I will try to help. I can do everything but give you your points back. Ask a super mod or admin. They have the power to refund points.

Let me know what I can do to help so we can get this working for you.

Ok that much is good, if the clear Avatar is working that's great. I just don't know how to return the background to the original blank slate so that my background comes out the way it's suppose to.

Thanks for the reply.

Oh, and what I mean is to post the link segment as it shows up in your member center- don't post the link segment I showed above. That was just an example. that is still in my member center but I'd like to delete it once you transfer it to yours.

Thanks AshleyD!

yes i did upload it to my memcenter.

Exactly step my step here's what i did.

I uploaded both images into my memcenter. Purchased the background image and placed ats64801_treeofpeace-background.jpg in the background slot. Then i placed the clear avatar in the avatar slot.

I thought the green was the the problem so i purchased another background color and changed it to black, thinking that was the default.

And that's where i'm at.

I appreciate the help

~Keeper


Ohh i did use your example, not the one in my memcenter, that could be the problem i assume. Dang now i have to re-buy it.

I think I may have found the problem. While viewing the background source, it appears the link was cut off. Instead of background it is showing us as backgroun.

Edit to add: I also don't see the .jpg.

All of that is necessary to get it to work properly. So d.jpg was cut off when you pasted. Let's see if a mod will return your points so you can try again. Best of luck. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

The name "ats64801_treeofpeace-background.jpg" is too long and will be cut off when you attempt to enter it in the store.

Rename the file to say 5 characters, upload it to your memberCenter and make the purchase again with the shorter file name.

Can you paste the link here so I can check it out? And have you tried uploading it to your ATS member center and hosting it from here instead of a secondary source?

This image?

files.abovetopsecret.com...

I'll edit it now to ATS standards if that is the image you'd like. Would you have a problem with me cropping it in half to make it vertical?

Ok Thanks a bunch. I have to run (unexpected) but I will work on a couple of examples and will u2u them to you tonight. Sorry, I lost track of time and see it's almost 3 pm. I need to get some work done but I'll definitely send you some avatars tonight based off that image.

Edit to add: Thanks KL for refunding their points.

Anybody got any suggestions?
