    I had to go look at the other thread to see what was up.I'm not a mod but from what I can see, your question was answered with links to other threads with the same information. Then some of the other members turned your thread into a TESTING thread to check their picture setup. There is a TESTING thread just for that reason under the safety valve section. The mod that closed yout thread was trying to stop from having another TESTing thread started. Just from reading it I don't think it was closed because of your question. You can always PM the mod that closed it but I'm sure it was for the reason I just stated.

    No need for the PM :) ... I thought I made it clear. There is a testing thread and it was the first reply in your thread. You just decided not to view it. There are instructions on how to put a image into your sig. Also you have to host your pic on the web, and not from your documents folder.

    and they say I have a guide for just about everything -

    a guide for an Avatar installition

    First head to a Gif center, here's one for you -

    http://www.gifs.net/animate/giflist.htm

    Scroll through their selection and select something you like.
    When you find something, right-click it and copy it's URL address.

    Then back you come to your "Account" to "edit personal information".

    Before your text, type in the following, without spaces -

    [img ]place your Gif's URL here[img ]

    Remember, close those spaces in the brackets so your avatar will launch ~>

    Then go to aD's Main forum page, find "Safety Valve" and you'll find a thread called "Testing Thread" - use that to test your avatar :)

    Just a final note: Keep the size of your avatar down. Too large a one and you ruin the thread margins - a bad thing for everyone -


    Now you'll be all set -

    Enjoy and SEASON'S GREETINGS,

    Pete
