. First, make sure the site allows direct linking. It will probably say if it doesn't. Right click the picture, click properties, highlight and copy the url with control-c, and paste the url in the provided space on avatar options with control-v. Hope that helps.

Umm sorry to say but you are direct linking your avatar, direct linking is aving the pic loaded from the website to your avatar, that is illegal and it watses bandwidth on their site your linking from. so I suggest you copy that avatar and then save it to your computer and then make a brickshelf account then upload the pic and then use that url from your brickshelf. if you need help there is a pinned topic in the COT forum.

Like they said, you can't diriect link, like they have pointed out. However, you can use an image hosting service like Brickshelf to link to. Or, just go to brickshelf and search for avatars.

You are direct linking your avatar right now you better get a new one before a mod helps your proto points go down
you can always ask at avatar shops on bzpower such as my own.
