Another service to save avatars is http://xs.to/
I opened an account yesterday when Photobucket went down again. Photobucket is a good service, but my account and the accounts of others have been down a few times during the past 3 weeks.
Here's what I did:
- Near the upload file box is a browse button. I hit is and located my picture.
- Once I located the pic. I clicked on it and hit the open button.
- A new page came up called My Files and it showed the file I saved. Also, there was a user id # on that page. I wrote that down in case my browser looses the cookies which should automatically log me on each time I visit xs.to.
- I clicked on the link to the picture I uploaded. Then I highlighted the link in the address bar and copied and pasted that link into the box (in the my home section of TrekBBS) that asks for an avatar URL.
