Avatars again - mirror site or other means?
« on: March 13, 2011, 12:04:33 PM »

Hi,
I've usccessfuly been using Fotopic as what I think is called a 'mirror site' i.e. I put my url of the picture on the web from my Fotopic site into the right box on my profile, then up it comes as my avatar.
It's been working fine until recently. i think Fotopic is having an 'off' time.......
If Fotopic persists in being down, can I  use the avatar saved on my computer?
Are there any advantages/disadvantages in this method?
thanks all

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

You can upload your avatar to the forum?  Is that not possible for you?
