    I see your problem, Raistlin Mage. You're trying to direct link from Geocites, which doesn't allow direct linking. Of course that won't work. Get a account on Ranchoweb, then direct link to the pic on there.

    BTW it does work in NS for a little while if you right click, hit "view pic" and then hit the back button. It IS cool..nice pic of Cloud doin' Cross Slash.

    Well, maybe I am hallucinating, but I can see the pic quite clearly... Raistlin, I'd agree with Mary-Alice on this one, go get yourself a Ranchoweb acount.
    And watch it with the double posts. tounge.gif

    'Sokay Ardea. It may be you went to the page that that graphic is from and haven't emptied the cache yet. Geocities is funny that way.

    But it's never a good idea to try to use a Geocities link(such as http://www.geocities.com/maryadavies/curritucklt.GIF ) for a avatar because chances are really good it won't work. Use http://www.ranchoweb.com
    or Inkfrog or something similar.

    In reply to oldnavy, yes, I did take my name from the greatest wizard in Dragonlance. I can't get enough of him. He's my favorite character of all time.

    In reply to Mary, thanks for the advice. I'll check try it out sometime.

    Hey, on the subject of Avatars....
    Is there a way to take an image from my computer (a .bmp of the main guy on SoM) and use it as my avatar, when I don't have a website?
  • ArdeaArdea Member Full Members
    edited November 2002
    You mean that one you're using isn't yours?
    Well, like so may things, the answer is in the question. You are using an image from a Ranchoweb accout. Go get yourself one! I do all my image hosting via Ranchoweb.

    (Could we get Ranchoweb to pay RPGamer for this massive publicity we keep giving them? ?biggrin.gif ?)
