Would someone please explain to me why the "avatar" function won't work?
I installed one, and it worked for while, then quit.
I've set it to 150x150 pix, can anyone help, please.
Thank you.

I just get the red X.

DarkRain, if you post the URL of your avatar it will give us something to go on.

Thanks Kinglizard.

I got a 404 error from it.

You don't have permission to access /darkrain.jpg on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Hi DarkRain!

The URL of your avatar appears to be

Tru downloading the avatar to your computer and then upload it to ATS via the member centre.

For further info, please see the Tutorial

Good luck!!

EDIT: Sorry - that was acids URL!! Your's is

External links "cost" the websites bandwidth ie the one you are deriving it from, so it's a good idea (and good netiquette!) to upload to ATS.

I too am having a prob with setting my avatar. I am on a MAC and there are no directions on ATS for a MAC. Although I sent an avatar lastnight and looked great but today whenI signed back on it showed a red it was a dead image.

???? HELP????

Alrighty, what's the deal? Yes I know this post originated in 2004.

Yesterday my avatar was fine and today it's just the red box. Can anyone see my eyeball avatar?

I'm using a pict in my ats photo album.??

Is this your avatar?

If so then just copy and paste this link *WITHOUT THE SPACE* to your avatar URL in your ATS account settings again.

h ttp://

Sorry if it’s not but from the description you gave it's the closest I could find from when checking out your media profile.

ETA: You've changed your avatar now so this looks all wrong.

That's happened to me a few times and I'm not 100% sure why to be perfectly honest.

It usually just seems to work itself out after a while though but if it’s bothering you then you could always ask a moderator for help or instead post in the ATS issues thread.

BTW You should know that I can see your avatar as well so it's working perfectly fine now it seems!

Thank you so much, that video was helpful. I guess imageshack doesnt like ats or something. I used the same exact size dimension images but uploaded them via ats and then saved it under account settings. Thanks a million :-) I remember I had an avatar years ago...remember the ID tachyon..haha yep..
