    Default Custom avatar URL

    So I want to use the following url for the avatar:

    https://hosting.photobucket.com/imag...e-original.png

    Thing is, it cuts here:

    https://hosting.photobucket.com/imag...63a9f7158ade-o

    Can we increase the lenght of the allowed urL?

    Nop. Tinyurl doesn't give a .png url that is mandatory for custom avatars.

    .png is only one of the valid extensions.

    Irrelevant. Tinyurl removes the extension.

    Hey..

    Sorry for the thread necro, but.. Tinypic is no longer possible. They apparently have been bought by Photobucket, and now we are forced to use Photobucket.


    Any other alternatives?

    I use directupload.net.

    You could also check the avatar urls of other posters for alternatives.

    Mine is actually hosted on Dropbox. There's a bandwidth/download limit, but if you set up a dropbox account specifically for your avatar, it shouldn't be a problem. My avatar's showing up, right?

    Nope, it's showing some weird psionic thri-keen ninja/cowboy/whaler instead :P

    But yeah, I'm using dropbox and it seems to work fine for me as well.

    Yeah, use https://pasteboard.co/

    Just upload an image and it will give you a short link, ending in .png or .jpg or whatever.
