Okay, I seem to be right out of the loop on this one. How do I find an avatar and link it to my profile? Can I do that on a PC Bang machine?

there are many servers that, for some reason that i've yet to understand will host your avatar on their servers for you...all you have to do is put one there and give dave's esl cafe the URL to where you have it...

i don't know of any off hand but just do a google search and you should find one...

You will notice that my other fly died and that I have been lucky enough to catch another.
All right instructions: Pretend that you think flies are great and practise on my fly avatar.
1 / Click onto my fly with your mouse. A list will come up. First off go down the list to "Go to my pictures" Click there so that the photo gets posted to your pictures. Now go down the list again to "Properties". Click there and copy down the URL address that comes up onto a piece of paper.
2 / Right now when you have found a picture of your own you come back to dave's and open your profile page and go down the very bottom to where you enter in the URL address. Type in the URL address and hit submit and that's it.
Any suitable photo anywhere on the Net can be used provided the size is right.

This PC Bang machine is all in Korean. Thanks for trying to help, but all of that's not possible for me.

I've been helping many people here out by hosting their avatar on my server. Contact me with a private message and I'll be glad to set you up. You'll just need to e-mail me the picture you'd like to use (keep it the correct size, or I'll shrink it down to size) and I'll take it from there.

This is a standing offer, but act fast - I'm going away this weekend until the end of the month on vacation. Smile Smile

Dude! Anda, thanks man. Very Happy I really needed it spelled out for me...

However I don't know why you "go to My Pictues", and just a shortcut, I just copied and pasted the address from Properties (that's what I couldn't figure out before Crying or Very sad ....) Who uses paper these days!!

Here are a couple sites that have nifty images.

http://www.mysmilies.com/
http://www.gifs.net/animate/animate.htm

Of course, you can always right click on someone's image and click properties and then see the URL.

A couple of hints more. First off you don't need Lemons help if you follow my instructions unless you need the photo reduced.
Second if you are on a Korean windows then when you click onto the picture you want and the list comes then just go down the list a total of 9 lines and hit the ninth line. Then you go to bottom line and that's Properties. Grab a Korean to help you with the URL address and follow the rest of my instructions.

Thanks Anda. Lemon swooped in there for me, but I'll use your advice for sure if I want to change my avatar in the future.
