Need HELP!

Postby McEdy » Mon Sep 02, 2013 6:15 pm

I tried to get my avatar working but there is always "url is not valid" :(
I don't understand because it's under 6kb and has a 80x80 ...

Here the url: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/245/c/f/avatar_for_prison_architect_forums_by_mcedy1-d6kr44p.png
Thx for your help :D

Be smart. :lol:

Just kidding, some forums don't detect url images from "unknown sites" like the one i gave you (dropbox), i don't understand very well the reason, but the experience of try-fail teach us a lot. Besides that, i converted the original file from .png to .jpg which could be the problem before.

Well, dropbox is very well knowned, what i meant (and it was the reason for me to use the " ") was the link being somehow different, probably that's why. Anyway, if you use Imageshack, you don't need an account or anything, just go there, upload an image (or use a link to one) and it will give you some links. I usually use direct link, it usually works for this kind of stuff.

And no problem. :wink:
