    Here is my lil avatar I want to use
    http://community.webshots.com/scripts/editPhotos.fcgi?action=showMyPhoto&albumID=42008588&photoID=42257231&security=akrLLj
    but ck5 keeps telling me "Improper picture type" The image is a .jpg and is 80x80 pixels. What gives? I have tried pulling an avatar from my communities.msn.com site as well but get something like "url is to long" Any help would be appreciated. /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    You can't use webshots to host a pic. You'll have to upload the pic to a site that will host it for you.

    Pictures are a member only perk last I checked... if that's changed, then I'll have to hop in and stick mine in before steve fixes it... :-P

    <edit> nevermind, I've got an avatar that I somehow forgot about.... check your hosting, and make sure its one that allows direct linking....
