@Nick and BDM - hey guys love the fact you guys are still around. Nick did the HOF idea ever properly take off? Your avatar of your dog is one of the three I always remember (with Roy and Redz' clown).

@redzdeadbabyredzdead - how are you mate? The return of SSFan version 4.0 would break the internet.

I didn't have time to do the HOF so running it was turned over to Bahku and I haven't seen him on the blog for years. So it kinda died. My boxer dog avatar will be making a return though, once byennie has smoothed out that area of the new blog.

Bahku - what a nice guy.

Have to say it's really awesome to check in and see some old names. I will try to be active during the season - I'm usually up until mid-morning watching games and averaging 4 hours sleep on game days, so why not.

It's as relevant now as it was 10 years ago when I first posted this.

Ha! I can't believe you remembered this post! TP for you old friend.

I also just remembered I gambled all of my 1098 Tommy Points in 2010 just before game 7, sorry to remind you of that. Also, no more avatars? Some of you may recognise me from my original pic...


I said it in the other thread, but avatars never really went away completely.  You just have to make an image that's specific dimensions like 65x65 pixels and upload it to a service like imgur.  Then in your forum settings just go to "specify avatar by URL" and put in the image link. 

Just plug in this:  http://i.imgur.com/OIgz9k7.jpg



I don't think 65x65 is a hard rule.  Someone else is using an avatar that is 57x80... so you can play around with it, but that's what I know works.

Edit: Seems really dark when you make it that small so maybe play with the brightness/contrast:  http://imgur.com/j3Ax4YH.jpg

I think you can upload any photo regardless of dimensions now. At least it worked for me.

Decided to go for smashing good looks.

Edit: I just noticed that clicking on the avatar pic takes you directly to the user's profile. I don't think that was the case before.

Hey LB, I've been spreading the word about your avatar uploads ever since you first posted directions three years ago. I was surprised more people didn't follow suit as the steps were very easy to follow (once BJ mentioned the right click thing). Big TP for saving many of us from having boring, pictureless screens all these years!

https://forum.celticsstrong.com/index.php?topic=80755.0

Funny enough, I just lazily attempted to change my avatar on the site without doing the imgur thing and nothing happened. I'm happy with BR-Suffer pic for now, anyway, I guess - just wanted to see if it was as easy as all the new avatars seemed to indicate.

Oh, and welcome back maestro! It has been a long time - glad to have you back!
