It Needs to be a certain size... what type of program do you have on your computer? You can resize in the paint program and then post on a photo posting site such as photobucket

It does have to come from a hosting site. You can't link it from your desktop.

This does work, and not everyone has avatars to look at, but quite a few do. If you cannot see any of them ever, you have to turn on the function in the My Home/Display Pref Edit page at the bottom. Choose Yes to the view other users pictures in their profiles question.

1)Go to a site like photobucket or imageshack and go throught the proceedure to upload the picture you want from your computer, resized to around max 109x150 size, and get the info for it. Highlight, Right click and "Copy" the thumbnail address that starts with "http//:".

2)In FM Forums, Go to "My Home" above in the line started by "Welcome, *****."

3)Edit your personal info.

4)Scroll down and click on the "url to your avatar"

5)In the area allowed, Right click and "Paste" the copied line.

6)Submit and look to see if it came up. If not, try again.

I prefer Latin for my Dead Language, anyways. That picture by KDawg's name is called an avatar. I can't help you if you don't say which specific parts you are having issues with. Have you tried going to one of these photo posting sites and uploading one of your pictures?

As posted above, the first step is to open an account at an image hosting site like Photo Bucket. Once you have opened an account, which by the way is free, you can send, or upload, your photos to Photo Bucket. What this allows you to do is post those photos on the internet.

So first off, do a search for Photo Bucket and open an account. Photo Bucket will give you easy to follow instruction for uploading images/photos.

Just as prints from a standard 35mm camera come in different sizes, ie: 3"x5" or 4"x6", so do the photos you have stored on your computer. The size of the photos are given in pixels, ie: 200x200 or 480x600, which really isn't that important as long as you understand that most photos are too large to be used as an avatar.

The largest size image you can use as an avatar on this site is 109x150. So you have to resize your photo to 109x150 or smaller.

I personally resize my photos with a photo software before I upload them to Photo Bucket, but I guess Photo Bucket offers you the option to resize your photos on they're site.

I used imageshack, but try each of the 3 different types from photobucket. Mine starts with "http://"; don't use anything in [] brackets. It sounds like you are most of the way there, and it took me a couple of tries to get the correct file type. You're close!

If your using photobucket, the URL you want to use is this one: click on the picture you want to use. Resize to avatar size. On the bottom right of the page shoule be a series of websites. The one that has worked for me is the one labled Forums and Bulletin boards. The only thing is, after you paste the address, be sure to delete the %7Boption%7D. I think thats all.

I'm pretty sure if you delete the img off photobucket it wont show up. You have to leave the img in your photo album.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
