Why is it so difficult to upload an avatar on this website? 

Post#1 » by RememberLu » Tue Oct 22, 2019 4:25 pm

Ever since Tinypic shut down, it seems like RealGM doesn't want to accept URL's from any other site. There's no option to upload a pic from your own computer anywhere, and there's no list of acceptable image hosting sites available anywhere. So you're just meant to guess which URL's RealGM will find acceptable?

I tried Imgur but RealGM doesn't find this image hosting site acceptable either. Can someone give us some tips for how to upload an avatar that this finicky website won't reject?

Fixed. Tinypic worked. I imagine the issue with Imgur is that they've gone to https



Post the links me to the images you want as avatar. Don't worry about dimensions. Just post the URL of the images.
