Avatars

Postby Eugene Blackgaard » Fri Apr 01, 2005 2:54 am

Greetings! Eugene Blackgaard here, explaining how to use avatars and the avatar gallery. Avatars are the little pictures that appear beside your posts, and often define what people recognize you as. Of course you can change it whever you want, but most people like to keep one for a while.

How To Get One
First of all, you need to earn enough cash to buy the ability to use an avatar. Avatars don't cost money, unless of course someone is selling them. The one time fee for using avatars is only $25, so there shouldn't be any problems with that! To buy the avatar privledge, go here.

How to choose an avatar
There are a few different methods. First off you must

Method 1: Upload an Avatar from your computer
Once you go into your profile, you can scroll to the avatar section and click "Browse" to upload a picture off your computer to use for your avatar!

Method 2: Upload Avatar from a URL
If you have the link to an avatar, post it in the second box and click submit. Your avatar will load!

Method 3: Select Avatar from gallery!
We have compiled 700+ avatars into a comprehensive gallery! Just click "Show Gallery", and you'll be taken there. Once at the gallery page, it will automaticly load up the AIO avatars catagory. But if you click on the scroll button, it will show you the other catagories. Here are the avatars stats thusfar.

82 AIO
17 Animal
11 Cartoon
10 Artistic
31 Classic
18 Lord of the Dudes
7 Anime
265 Batman
18 Disney
30 Final Fantasy
23+ Lord of the Rings
4 Medieval
41 Member Gallery
37 Misc
12 Movies
8 Mr. Bean
146 Muppets
6 Olde
42 People
4 Phantom of the Opera
5 Pirates of the Carribean
28 Star Wars
38 Legend of Zelda
12 TV show
11 Video Game
14 Western

Requesting Avatars
There are plenty of shops where you can request avatars. Also, I've done the avatars in the gallery and am free to do more, if you'd like some just PM me or drop a line by my store. Also, if you've done some avatars and would like them in the gallery, email the to lockecole@cox.net and I'll make sure they get in the gallery.

Thank you for your time.

*UPDATE*
I thought this topic might serve a better purpose here, so we can all work together with the gallery. If you have any avatars you'd like in the gallery, post them here.

Anyways, Monday has just sent me some very lovley pictures that I made into avatars, so if any of you ladies are interested there are some very nice avatars now in the "Artistic Branch" of the gallery. :)

I have a question about avatar's. I've yet to see any place that says how big an avatar can be, granted I know a resinable sized avatar is much perferied but alas what is the rule on the size of an avatar?

Or perhaps because I'm new to this copmplacated site I have not looked in the right place. Let me know if thats the case.
