Im new to this site of role playing since my last one died. ) : . anyways, how do i get my picture to work under ur name to the left, i made it 60/60 pxls and it still doesnt show up...?

Oh and does anyone know of a good rp i could fit this character into? :::

Name: Rand Al' Thor
Age: (Unknown - Unspoken of - Looks around 28 .)
Nationality: (Unknown - Unspoken of)
Hieght: 6'4''
Weight: 187 lbs
eyes: Green
Hair: Brown
Residance: None (Wanderer)


As Rand was a child, his family was raided and killed during the Aragoth wars. He was lucky to have been fetching water by a nearby well. When he came back his home was afire and his townsmen dead. He had no purpose but to destroy his family's killers and seek revenge by the way of justice. Though he does not speak of his past much, the only thing people know is that he was raised by the highest council of paladin's in the Western regions. He was a master of the sword at age 14, and a master of the council at 17, he then left to seek his vengence with the sword he stole from the high council's Throne of Ralgareth. One of the legendary swords found from the age of legends. This sword holds incredible powers, that he must learn to use by himself. Not even the high sorceresses could figure out the powers of the sword. He now is on a path to slay evil, and find the leader of the raiders who has gained power over the years, his name Isialdras.

I'm not an expert at this sort of thing, but here's how I do it when I want an avatar. I figure out what picture I want. Usually, it's on the web somewhere. If necessary, I get persmission from the original artist to use the picture, then save it onto my comp's hard drive. Then I edit it how I want, cropping out unneccessary parts, sizing it right, etc. Then you'll have to load the pic onto an image hosting site. Photobucket.com is the one I use. Once you've got it uploaded into your account there, you can copy the url code that's provided for it into the box here for that code. Then you should just be able to update your profile. If that still doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you, because I'd be as confused as you.

no, that's not how it is here (Unless you want a picture in your signature) The avatar pic is loaded directly from your system. Go into Your Settings (Or Your RP settings) and upload avatar from there. Reminder: BMP formats will not load. Only Jpeg, Gif, Ect...

I've also noticed a glitch on the rp side of the forums when it comes to the avatar, if you're still having probs, please post problem on the Support/questions forum in the general discussions forums, or intra-e-mail Dream_Knight with the problem..

Oh, cool, I wasn't aware that this site had its own upload system. Most of the sites that I have experience with don't have that, even though it is a very handy feature to have.

Or you could just copy this thread into that forum, Kalia, as we are sure that this problem will remain. I have not been able to get my avatar to show on this end of the boards either, while it runs perfectly on the community forums.
