    Never mind. I found the way. For people with the same question. Find a picture you like, and right click it -> go to "Open picture in new window". Copy the URL in the address bar and paste it where it says to put in the avatar. Now you should have an avatar.

    It's not a good idea to leech from someone elses site Corey.

    You are stealing their bandwidth and resources... Very uncool! It's a bit like tapping into your neighbors electrical system. You are using his resources and expecting him to foot the bill to suit your needs. :( :(

    And often, when whoever owns the site figures out what you are doing, they will replace the image with something embarassing.

    The way to do it is host your image on one of the free image hosting sites like [link:www.imageshack.us/index.php|ImageShack.] Quick, easy, painless, and no registration necessary.

    Do it the right way man...

    You can also upload your avatar as an attachment to one of your posts here. Then copy the appropriate URL into your profile.
