    In the past we have had issues with trolls creating accounts solely for the purpose of causing problems, including using offensive avatars. So, we enforce a 100 post minimum before you can select an avatar. Seems like a pretty good precaution to me.

    A question: do you also check all new avatars

    I'm fairly sure they don't, that'd be a lot of work with all the av changing that happens here everyday. ;)

    I don't believe we check every single one, but normally if there is an issue, another poster or at least one of the mods will catch it and bring it to the attention of the administrators.

    Speedis is a good free one. You don't even have to sign up, but they're not as reliable as people would want to think.

    You can use msn groups to host avatars.

    I was just wondering that myself. Do you get some type of FTP account?
     

  8. Well, just guessing, I bet you would save the file to the Files area, and then you would just have to put in the URL of the location of your av so that TBBS can use it.

    Easy enough, eh?

    And there are no type of bandwith or remote linking restrictions?

    Oh right, like your av I suppose? If you can see it it's only because it's in your cash, the rest of us are looking at a red X. ;)

    No they don't - I have a site there and unless you pay, no image linking for you.

    ^ Tripod does not allow hotlinking, i.e. linking to a picture hosted at their servers. You could ask some other poster to host your avatar. You could ask your friends from here or someone listed here.

    For some reason, Digikitten now marks my avatar as Forbidden.

    Therefore, AutoAdmin through a snit and removed it.

    Anyone know whether this is temporary or permanent? Also, got suggestions for another host?

    Digikitten posted this on their site the other day:


    So it's pay or play now, if you want Av hosting there. :(

    I'd be willing to host a few Avs on my site. :)


    edited 'cuz digikitten's spelling errors bugged me. :D

    This is midly frustrating... :( I don't have any web space of my own, so bye bye Avatar. Unless of course someone's very generous offer is still open (or someone knows another service like Digikitten)? It seems a little useless to find some webspace just to host one Avatar...
