Err.. first off you got to your profile

Then where it says Link to off-site Avatar:
Enter the URL of the location containing the Avatar image you wish to link to.
(scroll down) put your URL to your image there (in the textbox beside it)

I did that but it didn't show up. What if there is more then one pic on the page of the URL I want the pic to come from. Does it need to be a page with jsut a pick???

I know I sound like an idiot but i am having trouble figuring this out.

Dan used to have his old picture from SWAT as his avatar. As did Tony. I suppose when they upgraded themselves their avatars fled in fear

A little tip. When u see a picture on a web site, right click on it then hit properties, where is sez url just copy and paste it to the box. This is for future ppl wondering.
