G'day Bill - I'll try to explain this as best I can.
If you want your avatar to look like this...............
then a brief explanation will hopefully eliminate the need to grow any further hair
This picture has to be put as the "background" image - not avatar. BUT you still need to put in an image into your "avatar" in order to get it to
work........so the ATS geniuses have come up with this image:-
which is actually a piece of "clean-film" or transparency and therefore does not show up - thus leaving the aforementioned background image for all to
NB: Now firstly, open this link & copy/paste this .gif URL (from the address bar at the very top - you will get a white screen - thats OK - you just
want the URL) to your profile page -specifically to the avatar URL box. Then hit "submit".
Secondly, upload the aforementioned background image into "my uploads" and open it up so you get the page come up that looks the same as the link you
gave me in your question - hit "profile background" and you will be redirected to your profile page - once there AGAIN hit the "submit" button - but
this time where it says "background image" - once done you should be done and from there you can leave the .gif image alone and just change out the
background image (remembering to hit submit each time) as you feel like it. Remember backgrounds are 180x470 for max effect
Hope that all makes sense mate - let me know how you get on.
