Okay, I know this might seem a strange topic to have.

But what do you do for the hosting service for your avatar? Meaning, do you use gravatar or some other hosting service and put in the url? Or, do you [premier members] use BZPower itself as the host (I think you can do that, right?).

 

Personally, I use Gravatar. I have used it for many years, and was glad that BZP supported it.

Depending on the situation, I may upload directly from my computer. Otherwise I use photobucket because I still think it's 2005.

I always upload it directly to BZP, because I don't like being dependent on other sites in case they go down for maintenance or whatever. This is why I'm using my own server now rather than Brickshelf to host images for sigs and stuff.

Originally I used the likes of Brickshelf and Maj.
These days It's just direct uploading.

I always upload my avatars n such directly from the computer, but for all other images here (including sig banners), I use majhost since it's free, fast, and simple, and fulfills the purposes I need to be fulfilled excellently.

I mean it goes down sometimes but majhost is still pretty good when you want a no frills uploading experience.

Direct upload. Not that I upload a new avatar that often, though. :P

Are non-premium members able to upload their avatar directly?

Question prompted by:

 

I usually upload mine.

 

 

Yes, you should be able to. Try here - use the "Upload from file" option. Premier Members get the option to upload files directly to posts; that's what you may be thinking of.

 

I just upload mine from my hoard of Kagome pics.

Ah yes, I see now. Yeah, that's probably what I was thinking of.

Been a while since I changed my avatar, but if I remember correctly, it was a direct upload.

Wait, you can still host avatars off-site? I thought IPB took that out and gas you either Gravatar or direct host. Which is why I lost the ability to use my rotating avatar.

It gives you the option to put a URL in and then it does the direct host thing. No we can't do gifs and I no longer have my abnormally large avatar from before.

I got my from the bonesiii avatar cafe and if I every thought of changing it I'd go back there.

 

Edit: and now I'm using BZP's good old gallery for my avatar.
