I know this has been asked a thousand times,have searched to no avail,but whats the differance between them and how do I create one??
Not too bothered about image next to name but would like picture or something at bottom.Any help would be great,ie,where you get images from,what to do with them etc etc......

Sorry if this is old ground but still find some things confusing and intimidating!!!

Make an avatar (GIF 64x64 pixels), put it on the net - your homepage for example - (must be available for download), do the same for the sig (GIF or JPG).

Then goto "My Space" up above here, under "Profile" you can set the URL's to the avatar and the sig (like in "http: //<yourpage>/<yoursig>.jpg" without the space.

Test it in the official thread on the General Discussion list...

Picture under someones name is an avatar and the other picture in the thext box is a signature, that's all you need to know IMO http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Try this: http://www.uploadit.org/

You can post your pics here then reference them for avatars and sigs. It's free for limited use and 5/$5 (can't remember which) for full options.

Cheers!
