What is an avatar?

An avatar is an image that you place in your profile and shows up when you post. This avatar can show off a favourite character, pairing, or your general mood. You can change your avatar as many times as you want.

How do I give myself an avatar?

Go to your profile by clicking the link at the top of this page under the banner. Go to the Avatar control panel at the bottom. You have two ways of loading an avatar.

1) If you have an avatar already downloaded somewhere on the internet, put the link into the panel next to Link to off-site Avatar. Press submit, and your avatar should work.

2) If you do not have an avatar, then click Show Gallery. Scroll through the different categories to find one that you like. Click the radial button under the icon and press Select Avatar. Make sure you click Submit to save the changes to your profile.

I don't see anything that I like.

If you have an avatar that you use on another board, then post the avatar either on this thread, or if you can't host it online, email it to starwarsfanfiction@gmail.com with your user name. It will be looked at, and if accepted, then it will be loaded into the gallery where you can then follow the directions above to make it your avatar.

What dimensions/sizes does my avatar have to be?

To link to an avatar, it needs to be no larger than 100X100 pixels and 12000 bytes.

To submit an avatar to the gallery? Just as long as it's not so big it will ruin the table sizing or loading times, then we're not bothered.

Are there any other restrictions?

As the avatar will show no matter where you post, you need to make sure your avatar is at most, PG-13.

My avatar was deleted.

Sometimes when we do system backups or updating, avatars get moved around in the gallery causing the links to go bad. Normally a notice will be put up when a major move is done but small movements might go un-notified. Check the gallery again to put your avatar back.

However, if your avatar is too big, or rated, then moderators may delete at their discretion.

If anyone still is looking for some new avatars, you can use any of the LJ icons I've made (I know they're the right size, but the files may be a little big; if that's the case, just let me know and I'll make it work)

75 ROTS avatars

15 various avatars of Ackbar, Anakin, A/P, Palpatine, and Qui-Gon

25 avatars made from the LOTF book covers

7 squeeing fangirl avatars mixed in among other fandoms

19 "I *heart*" (fill in the blank) avatars

12 EU avatars

100 ESB avatars


I'm always happy to make new things if you provide the source images.

I posted them for you all to use. So go for any/all of them. Just let me know if they need to be tweaked in any way and I'll be happy to help.

Wonderful avatars!! Clapping

Just a heads-up: the "12 EU" link goes to the "I hearts" avatars.

I'm going to have to get a paid LJ acct. just so I can have more than 15 of these gems. Smile


(Oh, and I'm POUTING that none of your gorgeous Mara icons made it to the voting round at TFN. Sad )

Glad you like the avatars.

I fixed the link for the 12 EU avatars post.

And I wouldn't worry about pouting just yet. They are way behind (read: months) on getting icons up for votes.

Patience. I must learn patience. Blush

A few more Legacy avvies....because I'm having withdrawals and the next fix - er, issue - doesn't come out until next month. Embarassed






And because I'm feeling Morrigan this week:






(I can edit the images out once you upload them, JayCee, if you'd like.)
