Avatars/Photos/Signatures/etc Help Thread A thread to help with customization features.

I along with many others have noticed that a lot of users tend to have trouble figuring out how to add a photo, avatar, etc, etc.

This thread is to help explain, answer questions, and guide you through so you may not be troubled with avatar or photo issues any longer.
Note: This thread is most likely to grow and add other explainations so long as people feel the need for an explaination for anything revolving around personal customization on the forums.

-Avatars-

Avatars are the images that go in the area where your title, and other little tidbits of information are. This 'area' is always beside each of your posts you make on the forum, so that is where you will see your avatar. Here is an example:

-Photos-

Photos are practically the same as avatars. However the difference is they are smaller and are only shown in specific places. A user's photo will be shown in their profile on the left hand side. Here is an example:

-Signatures-

Signatures are yet another aspect of a forum where you get to have personal customization too. Signatures are or rather can be anything you want, whether it be words, images, etc. Signatures are seen under a person's post, and at the bottom of their 'about me' in their profiles.

Actually I've never used a moving gif on NEW!VO before.

Let me go check right now.
Edit: animated gifs work so long as they are under the file size limit. They might have exceeded the file size limit required.

The one I just used is under file size limit. oxo

Um.

Actually, there is a way to surpass the limits, by selecting Avatars/Photos through externally hosted pictures. I link stuff from my Photobucket. And you could technically use some ridiculously large high quality .gif or an animated .png in your Avatar/Signature without any issues but you'd force the page loading times on some older computers up by a couple seconds.

Also, something about the signatures and photos, as far as I remember, images aren't affected by the rescaling if they're placed in spoilers and untouched before the page finishes loading.

@Pap: Actually I've tried that before and my images refused to work, so I am not sure what you're talking about (I have attempted it with tinypic, imageshack, photobucket, etc, with images larger than 200x200 and larger than 200KB file size. Same can be said for photos.).

As for signatures, yes I actually already know about the spoilers thing, this is still a work in progress of course. I might add that in actually.
Photos and avatars can't use spoiler tags though. (But that's kind of obvious.)

How do you add music to your page, without the Video?
I've seen some users do it, but I can't seem to.

Although, I just figured out that
[hr]
makes a long line across the page.


And, out of curiosity, is there a code to make the user sprites appear on a page?


Sometimes you just gotta roll with it.

I'm assuming you're referring to the medias where it's just the music bar, no youtube video attached or anything so...To add a media without having the video you will need a dropbox account. Go to the website and make an account and follow things from there; [Dropbox])

Then you can put your music files into your dropbox folder. Get the link for your dropbox file through your folder, and add it into the media BB code tags.

Example;
[media]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21719360/Perfect%20Day.mp3[/media]


It'll look like this if you do that;
