I don't really know about avatars cause I don't seem to have permission to post one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif . For digs however, go to the secton of your profile called myspace, and click on "edit profile." Here, just pase in the URL of the pic that you as your sig, but remember to paste in before the URL and at the end of it (No spaces.) You should have your sig http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif .

call me stupid but im new and where is 'my space' and how do i find it???

Nahhh, happens to the best of us (I should know http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Lol!) On top of the forum page, underneath the Price's pic, there is a toolbar that has the following buttons "Go" "New" "Find" etc. Click on go and then click on "Myspace" and then on Profile. When you are at the Profile page, click edit profile, then follow the Pervious procedure about the pic. You can't go wrong Lol! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah man. Try looking for cool pics online, but if you really want this one, just go to www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com). It'll help you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There is a stickie explaining how to stick avatars and sigs in your profile. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

01-29-2005, 12:47 PM

01-29-2005, 12:53 PM
oh well fnx u guys bt im gnna leave it 4 a while im confusing myself

01-29-2005, 02:48 PM
Ok it's pretty simple

You need a imagehost that allows remote linking such as uploadit.org, imageshack ect.

Once you have signed up, you'll be able to upload your image to your chosen imagehost from your harddrive.

Once that is done, you will need to copy the url from your hosted image into your avatar/signature settings.

Please note that the signature tags are url here
For your avatar use the full url including
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://</pre> but without the tags

Hope that explains it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't forget photobucket.com for your hosting. It's the best! I don't even know how they have all that space for free, not to mention you can hotlink. But it's pretty nice! Just thought I'd add that.

01-29-2005, 10:42 PM
I highly suggest using imageshack.us - they are limitless in the size and number of files you upload. If you create an account (free, of course), you'll be able to select specific coding for different boards/instant messanging/etc.

Imageshack.us is teh awesome.

There's also photobucket.com and paintedover.com.
I suggest you do NOT use Tripod or Angelfire or Geocities, as they do not allow remote linking/hotlinking/however you like to call it.

Once you have your sig/avatar image uploaded properly, it's just a matter of putting it in the right place with the right coding. And there's already a thread devoted to that, so you should have no problem. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
