Need help setting up my avatar

Hey everyone,
I think of myself as a pretty capable person, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to set up my avatar. I gave up on trying to use the Above Top Secret media website, so then I tried entering in URLs for different images I found online and nothing worked. Any help would be appreciated!

Right now, unfortunately, you'll have to wait until the ability to upload images is fixed. I know they disabled the ability to host your avatar from outside servers a while back, so that won't work either.

Never fear though, as it wasn't a PEBKAC error, and I'm sure they'll get it working again in no time.

From the site owner...

The new code is installed and being tested, and we're ironing on a few bugs, so please be patient, it will be worth the wait.

It will be tightly integrated with the discussion board, and you'll be able to...

Upload images from the reply or new thread form...

Upload an image directly from the account page for your avatar or mini-profile background...

Upload images from the "tools" menu...

Be able to resize your images when uploading...

All with no additional log-ins.

Here's a link to the new avatar specs when they do get it operable again.. assuming they keep the page parameters the same.

I tried everything, but this is one complicated site, technically, sorry....
I gave up on setting my stupid avatar, it's just too much of a pain...

Hey, moderators, make it easier...

There's a lot of competition out there, try harder....

Be patient.

A PITA.... Why?

It really isn't hard to do when you try to do it. You'll have to wait till media is back up to do it, but once it is up it is easy to do, it's not rocket science!

Hopefully it doesn't take that long.

Keep an eye on this thread, SO seems to be posting updates:

Thanks, everyone! I got the help I needed to fix my avatar once the image hosting gets back online.

Thank you so much for asking about this. I've been clicking around here for about fifteen minutes trying to figure that out. Good to know that area is under construction right now!
