I have an avatar on my desktop, but I can't upload it here because there is no option to do that.

I even tried upload the same avatar from my Flickr account, and it keeps saying URL is invalid.

How can I properly fix this? Or do I need to request this?

I'd say making an account with Photobucket or anything that is a similar kind of site is the best course of action. I've personally never used Flickr so I don't know how it differs but I've used Photobucket for quite a few years now and every avatar or signature I've made has uploaded and displayed just fine.

Dammit, I cancelled my account with them. Are there any other sites that I can use?

Image Shack is one I used to use way back: http://imageshack.us/ I don't remember if you need an account or anything with them but they work about the same as Photobucket.

imageshack.us doesn't work with my browser. I got a malware risk warning.

I'm grateful that Vixx changed my username for me at least. That's good enough for me :)
But I appreciate your help.

Yeah, we don't permit av upload here. Any av/sig that you want must be uploaded externally and linked to your SHHF account.

I figured out what i was doing wrong. I wasn't putting in the coordinates.
Is it unsafe to have to upload from the desktop?

It's probably more a matter of storing all that extra info on SHHF space instead of some other hosting site.

Why bother the servers with all these little bits of data when you can just as easily link to it off-site?

Yup, that's exactly why. :)

do you think you could replace the polaroids for polaroids type 80? :3

I was wondering why I kept having difficulty uploading avatars. I don't know why Flickr never works on most forums.

I suggest just using TinyPic or PhotoBucket and forgoing Flickr. I never could get it to work personally.
