Re: Avatars

Yeah... I don't have any of that. Is it supposed to appear automatically when you reach "Guru" level, or is it something the site staff has to enable manually whenever someone reaches that level? (that would be rather troublesome for the staff)

To be honest, I really don't know. It may be something that they have to do.

Re: Avatars

You not only have to be a Sansa Guru, but a member in good standing of 'the posse'. Smiley Tongue

 

(Just messin' . . . private joke)

 

Seriously, I just checked my profile > icon tab & I have the URL box for a custom image icon just as Marvin described. The only thing I can guess is that since you are a newly ordained Guru, that it may take some time for this to appear in your profile.

 

If it doesn't show up in a few more days, I'd PM slotmonsta & ask him about it.

I don't know whether I'd classify that as a 'right'? More of a 'perk'. Even then, it's a perk that I don't even take advantage of because it's limited to images already hosted on the web somewhere else. And depending on the site, these 'hosted images' could go missing if that site goes down or they change it and that image is no longer used or displayed.

 

I'd like to see the option of uploading your own image as is the case on many other forums. Till then, I'm happy with my 'burger pic'. Being of German descent, it matches up quite nicely to my 'Familienname'. Smiley Wink

My new avatar is up! If you don't recognize him, that's Zaphod Beeblebrox of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (BBC TV version). Zaphod is another alias I commonly use online.
