    Try this link: http://www.geocities.com/likitarenn/avatar.JPG

    I guess you're just trying to use http://www.geocities.com/likitarenn/avatar
    You have to put .JPG in big letters at the end.

      Geocities doesn't allow remote linking to images, though, do they? If not, try renaming the file to "avatar.txt", uploading it that way, and then using the appropriate link for your avatar.

        You haven't uploaded the file yet (according to that link). Might explain the problem....
        I'm cool!

                E-mail it to me.

                I'll host it.
                The only constant is change.
                (And I wouldn't have it any other way.)

                  But doesn't that go against the geocities terms of use? Doesn't that get your account shut down and deleted without warning?

                    Having your geocities account deleted is doing you a favor...
                    It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

                      I don't know, to be prefectly honest. I've never had a Geoshitties account. But I know the trick works. As far as the rest, see Big D's comment above.

                        hehe, thanks bunches CD, i'll email it to you if you'er sure you don't mind hosting it... pm me your email addie? *grins and hugs CD* awesome, awesome, thank you much on TMS they just resize your av image for you, so the whole resizing thing has me a little lost i guess... or rather, the resizing and then linking to the resized image? lol, something... and my geocities account hasn't been deleted yet... not that i really have anything important on it anyways, i mostly use it as a way to transfer stuff from webpage class at school to my computer at home (since we're not allowed to bring in floppies )........ and geocities USED to be so much better, back when i was like 10 and my mom had all her stuff running on it.... *hrms* eh, oh well, what can you do?

                              I know how you feel.

                              Geocities did a number on me as well. But they did to anyone who isn't paying real money for their site.

                              CrouchingDork is hosting my avatar right now.

                              Heh.

                              "I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory,
                              even stopper death - if you aren't as big a bunch
                              of dunderheads as I usually have to teach." -- Professor Severus Snape.
